Demi Lovato is one tough woman!
The "Confident" singer has been training at the Unbreakable Performance Center (how perfect is that name?!) in West Hollywood, California. She shared a video to Instagram on Friday, which showed her beating up a combat sports dummy's groin during one of her self-defense sessions at the facility.
"I hate the word victim," she captioned the post. "I never have been and I never will be."

The 23-year-old pop star also posted a video of her squat moves which are, to say the least, very impressive.

If it wasn't already obvious that this was one intense workout, Lovato shared a Snapchat just minutes after midnight, pointing out a bruise on the inside of her arm.

The UFC also agreed that the outspoken singer is a badass. “We [see] you, @ddlovato!” the organization tweeted, along with a fist-punch emoji, which Lovato retweeted.
Jay Glazer, a Fox Sports commentator and owner of Unbreakable, also reposted Lovato's video, writing, "Proud of what our newest teammate @unbreakableperformance stands for and fights against @ddlovato. She's been gettin after it!!!"
The posts came one day after Lovato went off on a self-described midnight rant on Twitter, where she referenced her battle with bipolar disorder and said she “can't change being crazy" in now-deleted tweets.
After listing a few reasons why she was annoyed, including that people think they know more about her than they truly do and that she feels obligated to defend herself, she ended the tweeting spree with a NSFW statement that is still on her newsfeed.
"I'd rather annoy people with my honesty and loud opinions than stay silent and be fake as f**k," she wrote.
Lovato did share some good news following the punching video, however, and her 35.9 million Twitter followers are sure to be excited about it -- she's started working on new music!
The former Disney Channel star goes hard in the gym, and she’s been very vocal about her intense workouts. She's posted about her sweat sessions on social media a number of times, and last year, she told Fitness magazine that exercise has been important for her recovery following battles with drug addiction, eating disorders and mental illness.
"On show days I count my concert as a workout, but on my off days I try to work out once in the morning and again at night," she shared. "It can be a lot between performing and traveling, so I'm careful not to push myself too hard."

"We all have problem areas," she added. "I'm always going to have thick thighs. I can't change that, and obsessing over it will only make me miserable. Learning to be grateful for our bodies and taking care of them are the best ways for us to empower ourselves physically, mentally, and spiritually."

Lovato also goes hard when it comes to gushing over her longtime boyfriend, Wilmer Valderrama. Find out what makes him more "passionate" than her previous lovers in the video below.
