Emily Breeze Lifts 100 Lbs. While 38 Weeks Pregnant
When the super fit mom-to-be was three days overdue, she hit the gym to pass the time and posted a video of herself on Instagram doing squats and power cleans with over 100 lbs. on the barbell. "I'm steady growing and so is baby boy!" Ross captioned the video. "Feels: lots of energy, excitement, nervous butterflies for labor, and swollen! Baby: strong heartbeat, lots of movement, and wayyyyy to damn comfy taking up real estate in my belly."

Lifting 100 lbs. while 38 weeks pregnant? It's a breeze.

Fit mom-to-be Emily Breeze Ross, a two-time CrossFit Games competitor and personal trainer, is wowing her 21,400 Instagram followers by continuing to do her intense CrossFit workouts just two weeks away from her due date.

In a new video, she does burpees (while carefully avoiding dropping all the way to her stomach) and power cleans with around 100 lbs. on the bar.





"Fitness and staying on your grind is the easiest thing in the world to have an opinion about," Ross, 31, captions the video. "But the hardest thing in the world to do."



She's kept up her fitness throughout her pregnancy, except for a short, five-day break last week because of a sciatic nerve issue.

After taking 5 days off from the gym ( probably the longest ever) and focusing on healing my sciatic nerve/ pregnancy issue-- I felt so.much.better this morning!! I had some free time between clients so I decided to see what my body was interested in doing! I am beyond happy to just move after these past 5 days!! This makes me so thankful for my health, it truly is everything!!

"After taking 5 days off from the gym (probably the longest ever) and focusing on healing my sciatic nerve/ pregnancy issue – I felt so much better this morning!!" she captioned a video of herself getting right back into her fitness routine, doing cleans and jerks with a barbell weighing over 100 lbs.

"I had some free time between clients so I decided to see what my body was interested in doing!" she continued. "I am beyond happy to just move after these past 5 days!! This makes me so thankful for my health, it truly is everything!!"

Ross is thrilled with what she's been able to do during her pregnancy, and, with her doctor's permission, she has just been slightly modifying her moves if her growing belly gets in the way.
