We can always count on certified fitness trainer Katie Austin for some incredible workouts, particularly when it comes to exercises that work seamlessly into our everyday lifestyles.

The three-time SI Swimsuit model delivered with a minimal equipment workout on TikTok earlier this week that only requires a pair of ankle weights. Austin channeled Barbiecore athleisure in a hot pink workout set, which she paired with baby pink equipment around her ankles.

The 29-year-old influencer performed lifted bicycle toe taps, side reaches, single leg tricep dips, leg lift to cross crunches and push ups to leg lifts atop a yoga mat, all with her pup Milly at her side. She recommended doing each of the moves for 30 seconds, followed by 15 seconds of rest, before repeating three times.

“The workout i think @barbie would do:),” Austin playfully wrote in her caption.

The reigning co-Rookie of the Year posed for the 2023 SI Swimsuit Issue in the Dominican Republic, where she was photographed by James Macari. Many of her swimsuits on set were inspired by the trendy Barbie motif, so Austin modeled lots of bright, bold colors and fun, floral patterns.
