Labor Strains

My wife and I are due with our fist child in about 14 days. She's been working out throughout the pregnancy. In fact, she's been working out at a level similar to what she was doing pre-pregnancy but the program is heavily modified (this is what ACSM suggests is healthy and safe). Yesterday in her last heavy lifting session before the birth she squatted 315.  I took this video of her and thought some of you would get a kick out of it. To put this in to perspective she's normally 110 lbs but weighs around 145 now….so really this is an additional 350 lb load. She normally squats deeper but because of the baby belly can't get lower than she is in the video. She did this for a double. Enjoy!
