Britney's dumbell lifts were on point, and so was her makeup.

Fitness outside of the gym!

Whoever said you need a gym to stay fit clearly hasn't witnessed Britney's moves while on vacation in Thailand.

WHEN SHE STOOD ON HER BOYFRIEND'S SHOULDERS
Proof Britney has zero qualms about showing off her super-toned bod: She's so confident that standing on boyfriend Sam Asghari's shoulders during a pool day and filming the whole thing for Instagram is NBD.

This guy had no chance: No one challenges Queen Brit and comes out on top.

WHEN SHE WENT HIKING LIKE IT WAS NBD
While we'd unwind with a Netflix binge sesh, Britney uses her downtime to go hiking … before jumping into another string of Vegas performances.

WHEN SHE MULTI-TASKED AT THE GYM
Walking on the treadmill while lifting weights after a cheat meal at the Cheesecake Factory? Get you a girl who can do both.

WHEN SHE WAS SO CLOSE TO NAILING HER HANDSTAND
And we have no doubt the singer-songwriter will reach her goal.

Isn't she lucky? Britney has a squad on the big stage and at the gym.

WHEN SHE SHARED HER ANTI-BULLYING MESSAGE & ABS AT THE SAME TIME
Spreading good vibes while defining #abgoals? Phenomenal.

WHEN SHE BECAME A PART-TIME YOGA INSTRUCTOR
Okay, not really … but this move is on-point enough to fool the most seasoned of yogis.

WHEN SHE SAVED HER MOM DURING A HIKING TRIP
Because she's cool and strong like that.
