An exercise video has been viewed 10 million times in the last two days, and the reason for its popularity is clear: Cats and exercise give you results, people. Serious, ridiculous results.

Travis DesLaurier posted a video Tuesday of himself exercising with his cat Jacob and the Internet is freaking out, the video viewcount proves. It went up 500,000 views between the time we started writing this and the time we finished it (really).

In the clip DesLaurier performs some arm curls and overhead presses using his ginger tabby as a weight. He mixes in some ab crunches while holding Jacob the cat over opposite knees as he does them, too.

At the end he drapes Jacob over his shoulders and does a little brow dry-off with the tabby’s tail. It’s his way of cooling down.

And cooling down is probably the move that people might need the most after watching this video.
