NO WAY!!! last wednesday i programmed our box for a 400m walking lunge but every 10 steps you stop and do 5 chest to ground pushups. LOL!!!

Comment #3 - Posted by: Andy at August 21, 2010 5:22 PM

@ #2 Hank S.

No. I think a pregnant women's level of fitness dictates what she is capable of while pregnant. Taking into account hx of pregnancy and risk factors - Cheresa is strong capable woman (and a ER nurse at Children's Hospital).

Comment #4 - Posted by: Matt Chan at August 21, 2010 5:22 PM

Here we go again.....we have this perception that pregnant women are fragile....I think it's great! I'm guessing she'll do better through labor than most.

#& Cookie~ me going down stairs is quite comical right now after this WOD!

I keep telling myself "It's a good hurt!"

And, I agree with #4~Matt Chan. Having given birth to 3 children I can testify to knowing what limits I could push my body to while pregnant.

re:comment #5 (waderpro) I don't think the perception from Hank S. is that "pregnant women are fragile". I hear him saying that he is concerned about an accidental injury that would affect mom AND baby. $hit happens. Even to very fit, strong, capable crossfit baby-mommas who are ER nurses at childrens hospitals. All that doesn't make you immune to accidents.

Comment #11 - Posted by: MDMelissa 46/5'4"/116? at August 21, 2010 5:53 PM

Sorry Crossfit.....got a problem with advocating a pregnant woman of 30 weeks doing these types of exercises. I agree with Melissa....accidental injuries are much higher for the mother and baby. Just blew the wind out of my sail for Crossfit by seeing this picture!

wow. 400m walking lunge is gonna hurt!

Comment #13 - Posted by: Bill Gibson at August 21, 2010 6:03 PM

Cool! This will give me a chance to do some Deadlift as well.

Ack...again with the unsubstantiated "I think" silliness about what is or is not good for pregnant women. Same stuff Mrs. bingo heard when she taught aerobics for pregnant women in the 80's.

Hank S., what data do you have to support your statement? How about you, MDMellissa? Kelli b.? This "conversation" always reminds me of the dogma for heart attack patients in the 60's and 70's--the experts all said "I think" it's better to sit on your keister for weeks after an MI to "protect" your heart. Turns out that was exactly 180 degrees wrong. Kinda like the " I think flopping after exercise increases your cardiac risk." Turns out the EP data says just the opposite. Data rocks.

Take a spin over to CrossfitMom.com for measured CF for pregnant women. Stuff happens every time you get out of bed, pregnant or not. Bring data to support your "I think."

Musings to come...

Many activities are effective to maintain a level of fitness during pregnancy. With two small sons, I understand the "itch" to continue training hard through pregnancy, but I didn't include exercises like Cheresas heavy back squat because the increasing baby bump tends to create balance issues in later pregnancy that would (in my opinion) make the exercise too risky for baby. I wish Cheresa a safe delivery and a healthy baby :)

Comment #17 - Posted by: AmyV at August 21, 2010 6:17 PM

Comment #22 - Posted by: Mike C at August 21, 2010 7:11 PM

as a physician (though not and OB) I'm gonna echo the other sentiments posted earlier--this is not a good idea in the 3rd trimester.

It doesnt matter how fit you are, extreme valsalva (the increase in intra-abdominal pressure that occurs with heavy lifts) could induce placental abruption or preterm labor. Preterm labor and delivery is at a much higher risk for maternal and fetal complications. Air squats--sure. pushups--sure. Burpees, sprints, and heavy lifts not a good idea.

Comment #23 - Posted by: Brendan at August 21, 2010 7:15 PM

Fit or not, able to or not, I find it disturbing that Crossfit endorses a lift like that at 30 weeks ante-partum.

Question: How do the times for these wods get on the main site. It seems that the times posted, whether or not they are the fastest displayed on the comments section, are only from higher profile athletes. Obviously a lot of the higher profile athletes are going to get good times, but anybody else feel like Crossfit HQ is displaying an odd bias?

Comment #27 - Posted by: Sally R at August 21, 2010 7:37 PM

Yeah Cheresa!!! Keep it up! I did it all through my pregnancy as well and it really helped me a ton!!!! Your little one will be thanking you years from now!!! When are you due and are you having a girl or a boy?! Congrats!!!

Comment #28 - Posted by: Speal Wifey at August 21, 2010 7:45 PM

The walking lunge workouts are what I call sleepers - they don't look bad until you're about a quarter of the way into them. Should be fun!

As far as Cheresa squatting, good for her. And you know what, everyone should keep there opinions, which is what they all are, to themselves. This forum is for posting about the workouts, not second guessing what CrossFit chooses to put on THEIR website. Keep your opinions to yourselves, and post your times or comments pertaining to the workout.

AK, out.

Comment #29 - Posted by: Andrew at August 21, 2010 7:52 PM

@#14 bingo: I am not a doctor, pregnant woman, or exercise expert, so I can make no authoritative claims about what is/is not a good choice of exercise while 30 weeks pregnant. So, I looked at Crossfit Mom like you suggested. It states very clearly that women in their 3rd trimester should only do bodyweight squats (not past 90 degrees). In fact, I looked over the first 10 pages of programming on the site (from today all the way back to 5/14/10) and not once did I see a workout involving squats with weights exceeding 65#. How does the "measured CF" you cite support/defend the photo on today's WOD (115# BS with chains)?

Comment #30 - Posted by: Brandon at August 21, 2010 7:56 PM

Safe or not for Mom and Baby is up to Mom and her coach, that hopefully knows her well enough to allow weight and intensity she can safely handle. That's goes for prego or not. I'm more apt to notice the misuse of the chains. If only a few links are on the floor at the bottom of her squat, they might as well have used plates.

Comment #31 - Posted by: t. at August 21, 2010 8:04 PM

Quote from my wife's doctor when she was pregnant, with regard to her question, "can I still exercise?" He repied,"do what you are used to doing as long as it doesn't hurt."

Comment #32 - Posted by: Greg at August 21, 2010 8:04 PM

There seems to be an assumption here that Cheresa is doing her max 1 rep here. I work out with Cheresa and she's a strong gal, which really makes me doubt that to be the case. Perhaps the nay-sayers and MDs can chill out a bit here.

Comment #33 - Posted by: Dan Y at August 21, 2010 8:12 PM

re: 30 weeks = couch bound:

Prove it naysayers. Show me the data. Post links, post papers...anything. Particularly you doctors. Let's see the data.

Comment #36 - Posted by: Bell at August 21, 2010 8:36 PM

I have to say this is a bad idea! A mother to be needs to start putting her baby first inside of herself, this is a selfish act. You only have nine months to make sure your new baby will be healthy and give them a healthy start in life. You can work out after you deliver your new precious life. I'm not saying "don't work out while you're pregnant" I worked out until I delivered two healthy boys. I just didn't do such exercise that put my child or myself at risk. I am an advocate for elite physical fitness, however there a time to cut back to ensure the wellbeing of your new baby and yourself. I wish the best for the mother to be and her new baby! Crossfit this picture was a little disturbing....

Comment #37 - Posted by: X-fit at August 21, 2010 9:32 PM

Accidents can happen anywhere. She is probably far more likely to get into an accident in her car than she is doing squats. Fitness and staying healthy is something that should not stop with pregnancy.

Comment #38 - Posted by: Brad Shampine at August 21, 2010 9:37 PM

Great picture. I think the naysayers should understand that any WOD is about knowing your limits. . . 105# squats, even with chains, are perfectly within most peoples limits. It's jumping to a big conclusion to assume that Cheresa is doing something dangerous or reckless. And I agree with Greg's #32 comment. We should all do our own thing. You rock Cheresa.

Comment #39 - Posted by: Luke Palmisano at August 21, 2010 9:37 PM

I don't know for certain but I am willing to bet she has probably talked to her OB/GYN about exercise limitations. So personally I think it doesn't really matter what any of us think, good or bad. As long as the father, the mother and the doctor are okay with it then us non medical personnel can't judge.

Comment #40 - Posted by: Brad S at August 21, 2010 9:57 PM

Wow, all I could do when I was pregnant was puke.

Comment #41 - Posted by: noelia at August 21, 2010 9:59 PM

wrt the picture... since when did 105#'s become a heavy squat? Chains or not this seems appropriately scaled. From what I've seen balance issues arise when people change their body proportions w/o continued lifting. Given that she is doing what she is doing it appears that balance is not an issue. And remember: everything's relative. Oh, and belief does not dictate reality. Reality goes on it's merry way regardless of what we believe.

Comment #42 - Posted by: mark at August 21, 2010 10:10 PM

I like the pic. Her choice her body. I don't get worked up over stuff like that.. Omg n stuff just to be on the negative.. if it makes her feel right with herself then baby will feel good and relaxed because mommy does,.. I'm sure she was careful and safe about it.. Shes not doing drugs or drinking in the pic so lighten up people.. If she was doing burpees then I would be upset..

Comment #43 - Posted by: Brandon at August 21, 2010 10:45 PM

Not to sound like a jerk but am I the only one that thinks the times by the athletes posted for this workout are too high? I feel like I must be doing something wrong but I can accomplish a 400m walking lunges in under 7 minutes without any weight. If this involved carrying a 45 lb plate then I might understand...

Comment #44 - Posted by: Peat at August 21, 2010 10:53 PM

Comment #46 - Posted by: Anders at August 21, 2010 11:25 PM

I love the pic! This is not selfish or dangerous. Staying strong and active right up until THE day is the best way to ensure an uneventful delivery and a healthy baby. The weight is clearly not approaching her 1RM. Barring any unusual complications or MSK issues, that is the way to go. Well done, Mom.

This is a very worrying picture. Women's joints loosen up around the hips to allow child birth increasing the risk of back problems such as SI Dysfunction without squatting BW. It is just selfish, dangerous and really sad that CF would choose to show and promote a women 30 weeks pregnant doing such a movement. Keeping active is very important but this is crazy, and reading the rest of the CF community whooping like a bunch of typical Americans is just wrong.

This is just one answer. Again it always depends on the individual. There are always different answers out there. Keep in mind that it is up to the family. They probably won't care what we say. Keeping that in mind, let's focus on the workout and not the picture.

Comment #53 - Posted by: Brad at August 22, 2010 12:57 AM

I guess we should just put women on bed rest as soon as they are pregnant...Oh wait, maybe we should allow the individual and her doctor make appropriate, informed decisions rather than make comments from the peanut gallery. I work out with Cheresa and know that she makes all WOD decisions with her pregnancy in mind.

Thank you Blake.

Comment #55 - Posted by: Brad at August 22, 2010 1:21 AM

Even though crossfit is a group of fitness outsiders essentially, we are pretty closed minded. Again if her doctor says it is okay then let it be okay. Who are any of us to judge? Let's do the WOD and move on!

If I had any of my clients squatting with chains at 30 weeks pregnant alarm bells would be ringing.

There is no heroism in endangering yourself or your unborn child like that, and I really don't think such boundless idiocy should be trumpeted on the front page of a website for a fitness movement you want people to take seriously.

But then it's all fun and games until something tragic happens, isn't it?

I really hope her gym has the crossfit RRG paid up. Physicians are guided by common sense, medical knowledge, and--very strongly--by the interest of lawsuits. Maybe the more this community has to deal with them the more they will realize the danger in endorsing a potentially dangerous practice. Seriously, if I were main site, I would take that down. All it takes is some yahoo out there to try this with too much weight and abrupt her placenta and lose a child. Any lawyer and jury would agree that this is an instructive photo endorseing this practice. Gone would be your cavaleir attitudes and your money.

Sunday musings (thinking of the children)...

1) Goals. "Climb high. Climb far. Your goal the sky, your aim the star." From the pillars outside West College @ Williams College.

2) Expectations. I find that the fewer expectations I have the happier and more successful I am. The kicker here, of course, is to understand the essential difference between "expectation" and "goal". Expectations are yearnings, desires that may or may not respect the want/need meter. They take on a life of their own, make demands, constantly drain our emotional silos, creatures of the right brain. Expectations tend not to remain static, rather they evolve and grow, oft times becoming an unreachable star, always just out of reach.

Goals, on the other hand, remind me of targets. Fixed, purposely placed, their achievement amenable to strategy and tactics. Well-laid goals tend to be the result of more left-brain thinking with only a little right brain seasoning. They lend themselves to measurement, and progress can be both noted and celebrated as the journey unfolds.

In the end it was the expectation, the desire that undid Gatsby, eh? "[He] believed in the green light, the orgast!c future that year by year recedes before us."

3) Sea Ospreys. Each year when we visit Cape Cod we are treated to the theater of a nesting pair of sea ospreys who set up their household on a platform in our back yard. In recent years we have been there when the parents are pushing the chicks out of the nest to fly. Funny, I just noticed the timing this year.

Mrs. Bingo and I will become empty nesters in a week. I think we'll be OK, although it will probably be harder on me than her because I've spent more 1-on-1 time with Lil'bingo than my other two. Even so, we've been planning, in training for this for some 20 years.

Another milestone kinda snuck up on us while we've been perseverating on the empty nest: "The Heir" is almost ready to completely leave the nest, to graduate from college, to fly. Whoa...how did THAT happen? How is that even possible? Not fair! Throw the flag...piling on...I only get a year to figure out how to handle THAT?

Here's a funny stat: 10 years ago 1/3 of parents were giving some sort of significant financial "help" to their adult children; today that number is 2/3. Another one: in the last 20 years the average age of first marriage has increased by ~5.5 years. The nest, for some, apparently never empties.

In all the years I've been visiting this particular part of the Cape I've never seen more than 2 adult Ospreys in the nest. About 18 weeks after birth the young start to fly, returning to the nest for food, shelter, an education in Ospreyhood. At roughly 22 weeks they're gone, off to the wild, and Momsprey and Dadsprey head a little south until it's time to build next year's nest. Weird little symmetry/metaphor thing here, huh? Cheresa and her partner are 10 weeks away from filling their nest, 18 years from first flight, 22 from...well, what exactly?

I guess we'll see chez Bingo in a year or so. The goal has always been to produce successful, independent offspring, capable of unaided flight and off into the big wide world. Gotta be honest, a little bit of expectation has snuck in here as well. But the goal remains the same, the details have just changed a tiny bit. New tactics, same strategy, but the goal is to be the new 1/3. Got a year to figure it out.

I'll see you next week...

Dan - if it doesn't interest you skip it. Reading Bingo's musings isn't compulsory and there is no test. Personally think they add a little extra colour into the community experience here on main page. Not essential but very good to have.

Thanks Bingo for all the above posts.

Cheresa - awesome!

Risk reward, it's the same equation all day every day, and each individual has the right by their creation to choose for themselves.

Don't know why folks get so worked up over a maternal rock star athlete doing something easy for her. Don't know why anyone would assume - literally with no idea how much weight the woman's lifting relative to her PR - she's doing something unusual.

And really not sure why I'm reading all these absurd opinionators and giving a crap. Ridiculous. Paul

Stop the hatin cause that's isn't what this community stands for. The coolest part of CF is the community and the praise we give each other for accomplishing amazing tasks. High fives for our first ________ or any PR, that's what is so different about us.

We don't care how you do against the world, we care that you are healthier and stronger then yesterday. Cheresa shows that a seasoned CF'r can largely pull back on her lifts and keep training. She is adding to data showing this is possible and heck if any of you hear Coach speak, "You show me the data and validate what you're doing is delivering results."

I agree that there should be more chains on the floor, but what if this is only 50-60% of her 1RM and she is only doing a few reps? What if she is bracing her abs but not holding her breath? It is theoretically possible that she is experienced enough and has access to enough information to make an informed decision. It is also possible that she made the decision on her own, and that those viewing are assumed to be responsible enough to do their own research and make their own decisions.

Here's an Albert Einstein quote I'm sure everyone here will enjoy:
He who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already earned my contempt. He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would fully suffice. This disgrace to civilization should be done away with at once. Heroism at command, senseless brutality, deplorable love-of-country stance, how violently I hate all this, how despicable and ignoble war is; I would rather be torn to shreds than be a part of so base an action! It is my conviction that killing under the cloak of war is nothing but an act of murder.--Einstein

"heavy" is reletive. Her pre-pregnancy fitness and workout norms are a huge factor here. It doesn't look like she's loaded up for a PR. This seems like a reasonable action for her.

Love the picture! I'm 36 weeks pregnant and love continuing on with my crossfitting and the new crossfit community I have found at crossfitmom.com! Also love the fact that we are stepping away from the idea that pregnant woman should not lift anything and the progressive movement away from what was thought was correct with pregnancy and birth. Us pregnant woman have an innate sense of what it right and wrong for us and our babies. Healthy and strong = the best way to accomplish an amazing birth!!!

I used our new squat racks we just got for our garage gym.

then I did 200 walking lunges. I will feel those.

Comment #146 - Posted by: Timmay at August 22, 2010 12:37 PM

38 weeks pregnant here. wish i could be doing what Cheresa is doing. I stopped CF and running between 6-7 months because working the the med surg, going to school and handling a 2yr old was tiresome for me. So, I decided once we had the baby and I was cleared, I'd have all the time in the world to start WODding again.

My feelings on the picture are mixed but I must say I'm proud of her. My friend and fellow trainer, Lauren was just featured in the Journal not too long ago. She's yet another awesome example of a pregnant CFer mom. :)

In the end, everyone is at risk for something. It's all a matter of knowing what you're capable of. There's always a fine line--pregnant or not.

M/43/5'9/200

No track so I had to use a high school soccer field. Thought it was 100m in length but some Google research showed me a pitch’s length can vary between 90m-110m, damn European "football," can't the Europeans ever make a firm decision? Does everything nowadays have to be so squishy? Anyway, enough of my jingoistic rant about our European friends.
reps: 432 (knee to grass)
time: 15:32
Odd thing I noticed...as I tired my form went from straight steps forward to a sort of sumo step. Sharp pinch in the right MCL reminded me to tighten my hip flexors and gluteus, and keep my form straight. ALso noticed a lack of balance with the sumo step which disappeared when I focused on a straight stride.

Cheresa: Get some! Don't worry about the naysayers. Only you know your abilities. One question though did you always have a wide stance when back squatting or is that a modification from your pregnancy? Did you feel stable? Going off the chains it looks like the weight is over your toes vice your heels and your chin seems low, but that could just be from the right front camera angle.

Not sure on the distance from other post though I think I probably cut it a little short. I do have big strides though so I don’t think I was of by much probably about 50 lunges or so.

I am going to go ahead and assume that most of us on her are not OB doctors thus we can not make an educated opinion on whether or not this is a good idea this late in the pregnancy. I would be baffled if you could find one.

Comment #198 - Posted by: kh at August 22, 2010 5:03 PM

Would say this medically ok. Also the reason for the wide stance is from the release of pitocin during the last trimester. It softens the pelvis to allow for birth. It is what makes them walk funny and causes them to be unstable

Comment #228 - Posted by: Kate at August 22, 2010 8:50 PM

Thank you for all your comments pro and con. I was actually quite surprised to see my picture on the main site as crossfit is a lifestyle for me and I don't see me squatting as remarkable, dangerous or careless. I think what people are forgetting is that I am followed carefully by knowledgeable trainers and have extensively consulted with my physicians.

In response to comment #174, yes my squat stance has widened with my pregnancy and I do have to really focus on trying to keep my weight in my heels. Hence the reason I have chosen to do a light weight on the bar and focus more on balance and stability thus having to accommodate for the extra weight in front.

As with working out in any stage in one's life, each individual needs to know their limitations and workout within those boundaries. Those that have commented that I am harming my child, harm can be categorized in many different realms. You would be better off getting to know me first and my capabilities before firing off an uneducated response. But I do appreciate all comments.

Good for you Cheresa. I think NOT doing anything while pregnant is more dangerous for your unborn child than doing some light squatting (remember, "light squatting" is relative). For thousands of years women have done hard, manual labor while pregnant, given birth, and kept right on going. To "relax" for 9 months would mean starvation or death or poverty. Glad we have the option to do what needs doing now! Go girl!

Comment #241 - Posted by: Meghan Waldeck at August 23, 2010 6:09 AM

The main reason I dislike the exercise pictured is that anyone who cannot squat bodyweight is really wasting their time using chains or bands, and just really needs to work on their squat. Too much effort for too little return at this point in the training of a novice.
And the chain set up is a little less than ideal as well, given that you have no real idea how much chain is at the bottom vs. the top, given the length of the feeder chains used to support the heavier chains.
Quit over-complicating a simple and effective exercise.

As rx'd, 12:15 (PR) and 381 steps.

Tried to take longer strides this time - resulted in 6 fewer steps, so maybe not that helpful. Did feel that the longer lunge hits the hamstrings a bit more where a shorter lunge is almost all quads/glutes. That last 100m was a real grind.

M/32/6'0"/175

12:30 and 357 steps as RX'd

Broken into 50's for the 1st 100, 25's until the 300, and straight for the last 57. I definitely shouldn't have broken it so much.

I procrastinated this workout because I knew it would cripple me for the day. Not too bad so far, although the bike ride home from the track was a cruel joke (On my wifes 50 pound Dutch Cruiser with the seat adjusted too short).

M/38/188/5-10
400m lunges

12:35 320 steps.

Steady pace, 100m pace count was around 78-80.
Didn't try to kill this one, use hands on knees so as not to bounce knee on way down.
Splits at 100m intervals were.
3.14....3.22....3.15...2.42.
Clearly could have gone harder if last split was the fastest. Little sore but not too bad. A good little workout.

made the turn at 8:30 so almost a minute longer coming back

320 steps I think (152 going out)

Not too awful at the time but we'll see about tomorrow morning. Probably could go faster but 1st time doing this WOD and didn't want to flame out so I was trying to pace. Able to do w/out pause at first, but quickly changed to mostly step,pause at top, step. Stopped and shook out about every 25 steps. Not sure if it's allowed but some reps used slight pushing w/ hands on front leg.

I'm glad there isn't a picture of me doing my 205lb Back Squat at 29 weeks pregnant...who knows what kind of comments would have generated! I support all the comments above that think a pregnant woman continuing her exercise regime is awesome. As long as mom isn't straining, this is not a dangerous exercise..you can just as easily injure yourself walking and tripping over a toy in your own home. I've heard that the amount of energy and effort that a woman spends during just one hour of active labor is the equivalent to digging a ditch for 3 hours...I would assume that being in great shape would only benefit the woman during the "LABOR" WOD...the one that ends with her shouting "TIME" as a baby comes out. lol
