A pair of twins whose bottoms each measure just under four feet around have revealed that they do an eye-watering 2,000 squats every day in order to look after their hourglass figures.
But all that hard work seems to be paying off, as aspiring models Miriam and Michelle Carolus, 28, who live in Miami, Florida, have been able to use their dazzling derrieres in order to carve out a career as social media celebrities – earning nearly 250,000 followers on Instagram.
And despite some of their online critics insisting otherwise, both girls deny their success is due to surgery, saying that their large behinds are the result of a dedicated regime that sees them mirroring each other’s lifestyle to pedantic detail.

Famous curves: Michelle and Miriam Carolus, from Florida, have earned internet fame on social media thanks to their large behinds, which they say they maintain by doing 2,000 squats a day
Hips don’t lie? The 28-year-olds insist that their curvy behinds are the result of a strict exercise regime, which they combine with a rigorous diet plan, rather than surgical enhancements
‘We make sure we eat the same, exercise the same – everything the same,’ said Michelle, who even phones her sister to compare calories when they are apart.
‘We try to do a couple of thousand squats a day to keep in shape. It won’t be all at the same time. It will usually be stretched over something like nine hours.’
The sisters, who both work for a Miami plastic surgeon, may have boosted their busts from a B-cup to a D-cup with $5,000 matching breast implants – but don’t plan on going under the knife again.
Five-foot tall Miriam said: ‘We would never consider surgery on our butts – our workout plan pretty much takes care of that.
‘And when you do it naturally through hard work it makes you feel a lot better about yourself.’
The girls even live next-door to each other in Miami, Florida, and work for the same plastic surgeon.
They were very close growing up – even for twins – and their mother even tried to separate them.
Follow the leader: In order to ensure that their figures stay as identical as possible, the girls copy every aspect of each other’s lifestyle in intimate detail, making sure they eat the same food and workout in the same ways
Get low: The girls follow a carefully-constructed exercise regime every day, but admit that their squats are the key focus of their routine
Working hard: To maintain their identical measurements, they have enlisted the help of Bahiem King (left), 30, owner and founder of King Fitness, to create a tailored regime
They were put in separate classes at school but reunited at college to study to become medical technicians.
Their looks have brought them attention throughout their lives but it was only two years ago they decided to break into urban modelling as the ‘Double Dose Twins’.
Michelle, who is 45 minutes older than her sister, said: ‘It started off with Instagram. We’d never had social media before then. We posted a picture and got a lot of attention from the first shoot we did.
‘We’ve had a lot of bookings for magazines and offers to travel. Modelling is actually a lot of fun.’
They have earned $30,000 between them and flown as far as Dubai for modelling contracts.
To maintain their identical measurements, they have enlisted the help of Bahiem King, 30, owner and founder of King Fitness, to create a tailored regime.
He combines a mixture of boxing, MMA, plyometrics, soft-touch CrossFit, weight training and a lot of squats to achieve their ‘part Beyonce, part Serena Williams’ look.
Checking up: The girls keep tabs on their measurements to ensure that they are maintaining identical standards; at the moment, both twins measure 36-22-46
Fists of fury: The twins use a mixture of boxing, MMA, plyometrics, soft-touch CrossFit, weight training and a lot of squats to achieve their ‘part Beyonce, part Serena Williams’ look
Tasty treats: It’s not just identical exercise routines that are important to Michelle and Miriam – they also make sure they eat the exact same meals every day so they can keep up their trim figures
They will perform hundreds of squats in their main workout of the day – but will also stop and squat up to a 100 times each hour over eight to nine hours – building up to a maximum of 2,000.
They also mirror each other’s diets down to extreme detail, putting the exact same calories in smoothies, salads and protein shakes and fat burners.
Miriam, who like her sister measures 36-22-46, said: ‘We generally stick to a healthy diet and it’s the same all the time. We are very strict about this.
‘We will work out the exact same and make sure that if one of us has done more the other will have to catch up.’
Michelle added: ‘It’s like a mirror. If I ever want to know if I’m looking good or not I will just look at my sister.
‘We have the same hobbies and if one of us gets something for their house, the other has to as well.
Best friends: According to the twins, they have been like peas in a pod since they were born, despite the fact that their mother tried to encourage them to find other friends and do things as individuals
Inseparable: These days, the twins work together, they live next door to one another and they share the same hobbies which – surprise! – they do together
‘We actually lived together until last year but now we’re just neighbors. We still spend nights at each other’s house every other day but if one gets on the other’s nerves we can just tell them to go home.’
And their dedication to their matching lifestyle is rear-ly starting to pay off.
Miriam, who like her sister is single, said: ‘It’s not hard for us to get attention from guys but it’s hard for them to get attention from us.
‘When we are out in a club we get a lot of attention and there will be a lot of double takes of us.
‘Some guys even think they can go after us together, which is so lame. We share most things but we’ll never share a guy.’
For now they are concentrating on their careers.
Their protective family – especially their mother – have their reservations about it, they admit, but they are ploughing ahead and even looking for acting parts.
‘Our ambitions are to build a brand for the future, travel more and get rich,’ said Michelle.
‘It’s been a lot of fun so far and we don’t want that to stop.’
