Lauren Drain, a fitness trainer who had a baby last month, showed that she hasn’t let motherhood stop her fitness regimen in the latest video on her Instagram page. Dressed in a black tank top and matching leggings, Lauren powered through a booty-focused workout that started with step-downs at an assisted dip machine. In the caption, she recommended doing 12 reps of this exercise on each leg for six sets.
Lauren then moved on to doing hip thrusts on a machine specially designed for that exercise. Her caption suggested doing 12-15 reps of these for six rounds. She also instructed viewers to “pulse” the final three reps, which means to maintain the contraction at the top of the movement for optimal booty- boosting results. Lauren also mentioned that the exercise could be done with a barbell or a Smith machine.
Then she moved on to doing weighted jump squats with a barbell hoisted on her shoulders. According to her caption, the torso should be upright and the back flat when doing this move. She also told fans that they need to bend their knees each time they landed. This exercise is a quick booty-builder she said, especially if it’s done every week.
Near the end of her caption, Lauren also encouraged her fans not to skip training the lower body if they’re strapped for time. She maintained that the circuit she demonstrated can be completed in 30 minutes and that “you’ll really feel the burn the days after.”
The clip amassed more than 10,000 views within the first hour after it was posted. In the comments section, fans had lots of compliments for Lauren.
“Not to be disrespectful but your a** looks great,” one person wrote.
“You’re recovering so well from your pregnancy and birth!” another added.
One fan called her an inspiration for moms.
“Definitely a role model for many pregnant women and moms out there,” they wrote.
A fourth seemed wistful about the gym equipment that Lauren had at her disposal.
“Thaat hip thruster machine looks perfect. I’m out here bruising my hips with metal bars” they wrote.

SHORT ON TIME ON LEG DAY? Here’s three booty blasters you can do in 30-40 min tops! (See link in bio to join my next challenge to get your total body transformation and win some cash!) TRY THESE IN 30 MINUTES OR LESS: 1) Step-downs in assisted dip machine 6x12 each leg. Drive though heels. Slow and controlled. 2) Hip thrusters - using barbell, Smith machine, leg extension machine or hip thruster machine if you have it! 6x12-15 reps, pulse the last three reps or hold at the top of contraction for maximum muscle gains. 3) Weighted jump squats - keep chest up, back flat, land on soft knees. Explode up! This recruits fast twitch muscle fibers like a sprinter and will get maximum gains in shorter time frame if done every week! Fast booty builder move. Don’t skip leg day just because you’re short on time! Can squeeze moves in 30 minutes! 6 sets allows maximum muscle exhaustion, so you’ll really feel the burn the days after!
This isn’t the first time that Lauren has worked out since becoming a mom. In a previous workout clip, she included her daughter Aria Skye into a circuit that included hip thrusters, squats, side lunges, mountain climbers, and push-ups. In the caption, she referred to Aria as her “babybell,” a cute play on the word barbell.
It looks like her baby’s cameo was popular with Lauren’s fans as the video has been viewed more than 100,000 times on Instagram.
