The placenta was probably mixed up into an energy drink on the spot.

But Meghan Umphres Leatherman from Arizona, U.S., is not most women; In fact she continued her grueling CrossFit regime throughout her entire pregnancy.

That baby probably popped out already sporting six-pack abs and punched out the doctor she got her butt slapped.

when i am doing overhead squats, the odds of me dropping the weight where that kid is are nearly 100%.  I always drop them back into the hang position and i'd take out the little munchkin on the way.

and yeah, i'll definitely be doing that with a 135# OHS.

Crossfit has been a boom for the used tractor tire industry.  Before crossfit they couldn't give those away now they get to name their price.

Getting an early start on those teen years battles I see.  It works, a teen shuts his mouth a lot faster when the parent pointing a finger and telling him to watch what he says next has a full affect when the parent can pick him up and throw him.  I know.

He tried working out, but found out there is no amount of working out he can do to catch up to me while still living in my house.  It will take him a few years to get there.

/my dad is still the only person to ever knock me off my feet.

The first kid is usually never a problem, they feel threatened by the second and are constantly looking for mommy and daddys approval. The second kid is the "baby" and always feel like they can get away with everything. They are always an issue...

Wanna know why your kid was barely 7 lbs? Yeah, your next one might not be so lucky.

While being active is important in pregnancy, you really should not have been dead-lifting like that.

That's the only concern I had with this story... the physical danger to the baby/crush hazard.  But she's doing far less harm to her baby than women that start at 50lb overweight and still take the liberty of "eating for two" and gaining another 30-50.

You know that regardless of starting weight it's recommended women gain at least 25 pounds?

I wonder if she's also bulimic like my old HS/college friend - who now owns a Crossfit studio - and was always bragging when her period stopped completely for months at a time because she took it as a sign she was "really, really in shape."

30 is average. I gained much more than that and lost it in a year. Breastfeeding takes it off.

Not the case in my house, the first one isn't worried about my approval and has to be reminded to watch his nasty attitude.  The younger son is the one who I can tell wants my approval, which will be my only chance with him.  If the first one was strong like it looks the younger one will be, we could've gone to blows, because there are days he looks like he wants to punch me.  And it is usually because I told him to back off screaming at his siblings.  He has an anger issue, which is why I'm glad I can hold my own against him.  If I have something to say, I'm going to say it, and he needs to listen.  But somedays, he looks ready to fight me over it.

My dad was different, it was more of he'll tell me something hoping I'll get upset, or he'll smack me and wait to see if I'll swing (and those were the good days).  I never stared at him the way my older boy stares at me, I was more like my younger son.  I went for dad's approval, got little of it, so not much reward for the effort.  Surprisingly, the only approval I got from him was how my kids are polite and kind towards each other as oppose to how my nieces and nephews act.  He almost looked like he was going to apologize, but I don't think he can get the words out.

I know some crossfit people who are very fit, fitness model fit. But that seems to be the exception not the rule at some of these "gyms". Look at her "trainer" husband, dude looks like some guy who hits the gym twice a week and drinks alot (I may know a guy like that. *cough*).  Not high intensity workout & diet type person.

Just an observation, don't know what I'm getting at.
 
2014-05-12 11:02:01 AM  
Cross fit... Of course. Along with those stupid squats across the back of her neck (enjoy that neck problem you're working on mom), is she also doing those useless kip up pull ups too?

A woman blackbelt I trained with in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu used to go lift all the time too, she had an easy pregnancy and stayed fit as a result. The difference is our mutual freind, who is our trainer, isn't a moron. Safe sensible training, no macho bullshiat.

I wouldn't train with someone who wasn't really fit themselves.

Old, old, old, outdated advice from when the average woman wasn't already overweight.  This is bad advice for already-fat women.  Current advice adjusts the gain significantly depending on pre-pregnancy condition.

I'm not really versed in proper weight-lifting technique but some of those poses just seemed unhealthy.  That's sort of the cornerstone of CrossFit, though, isn't it?

Satan's Bunny Slippers: So apparently crossfit doesn't have a "no bare stomach' rule like the other pansy place does.


Definitely not. Crossfit has a strong cultural component which generally includes showing a lot of skin and working out in a shiatty industrial space.

I don't know if I like crossfit or not, but the few workouts I've done were pretty much the hardest things I've ever done outside of Ironman.

I don't think she's necessarily too far wrong. I'm sure it's not always healthy but serious athletes do apparently stop getting their period when they are working out hard and often.
