What are your thoughts on training during pregnancy? Do you think it is appropriate for someone 30 weeks pregnant to be performing this type of exercise?
I am a huge proponent of keeping fitness up through all stages of life but know very little about exercise and pregnancy. It makes sense to me that an expecting mom should train (fit mom = fit baby?) as long as her doctor agrees but is it necessary to train as pictured above?
There is a website for expecting Crossfit moms ( www.crossfitmom.com ). Check that out too and let us know what you think…
