Since the birth of her twins in April, new mom Mariah Carey has been shedding her baby weight. And the secret weapons in her fitness program are five four-legged dogs.

“Jogging puppystyle!” she wrote on Twitter.

In the accompanying photo, Carey is pictured in workout gear with her Jack Russell terriers – Cha Cha, Jackie Lambchops, Jill E. Beans, Squeak E. Beans and JJ – and a few of their leashes wrapped around her legs. It’s no wonder she’s getting a workout – with two infants and five pups at home, she’s got a lot to keep up with!
