Should Pregnant Women Be Weightlifting?
Exercise is essential for a healthy pregnancy, but one photo of a pregnant woman weightlifting has ignited a debate on how much pregnant women should work out! Lea-Ann Ellison is 35, and a stay-at-home mom at eight months pregnant with her third child and attends regular CrossFit classes at her local gym. Last week she emailed the company touting her success on the workout and included a photo of herself lifting weights. A few days later, the company posted the photo on its Facebook page, subsequently triggering an outcry. Yep! Lea-Ann received thousands of comments — many of which were negative criticizing her for overdoing it with the baby! Well, I’ll let you judge for yourself. (Story courtesy of Yahoo Shine)
