On her April 29 due date, Emily Breeze waited for her baby boy to decide it was time to come out of her body to no avail. Days later, her first child still wasn't ready for the world yet. Since then, Breeze has been busy biding away her time with an unusual method of distraction: lifting heavy weights.
Breeze is a CrossFit athlete who hasn't let her baby bump stop her from doing those things your CrossFit Facebook friends love to post about. Even as the end of her pregnancy neared, Breeze continued to workout her body in ways you'd never dream of subjecting yourself to, pregnant or not.
"Overhead squats feel so good even with baby boys due date in 7 days!" Breeze captioned one of her videos.
Breeze told Us Weekly that she hasn't been lifting nearly as much as she was pre-pregnancy. "My one-rep max on dead-lift is 325 pounds, so 155 is less than 50 percent of my one-rep max," Breeze said while discussing her feat of dead-lifting 155 pounds 55 times eight months into her pregnancy. For those who don't understand weight lifting numbers, that's impressive.
Even if she wasn't carrying around a baby, Breeze's pregnancy workouts would be tough for 95 percent of the population.
At this rate, her baby is going to come out with a six-pack.
Previous to carrying a child around, Breeze had abs of steel.
For naysayers of Breeze's activity level, she also does socially accepted pregnant lady things, like pose in a dress.
