Kate Upton isn’t afraid of a challenge, especially when it comes to her workouts with longtime trainer Ben Bruno. Most recently, Bruno shared a throwback clip from a time when Upton let her husband, Houston Astros baseball player Justin Verlander, hop on board while she pushed a sled uphill. In the clip, Verlander stands on top of a three-wheeled sled while Upton leans forward to push him up a hill on a neighborhood street while wearing pink leggings and a black tank top. “My wife pushed me around as always,” jokes Verlander in the video. “Just the ball and chain weighing me down,” replies Upton.
Through their playful banter, Verlander encourages Upton to keep going as she takes a few more steps up the steep incline. Her dog, Norman, even makes a cameo, walking into the shot at the last minute.Bruno shared the silly clip in honor of Verlander’s team making it to the Major League Baseball World Series, according to the caption of his post.
Nowadays, Upton seems game to add more weight to her sled workouts, but that wasn’t always the case. “When I started training with him [Bruno], he would say, ‘Let’s put 500 pounds on the sled,’ and I would immediately say, ‘I can’t do that.’ So, he started standing on the sled so I couldn’t see how much weight was on there,” Upton told.
