A mom has been slammed for lifting 315lbs of weight while 8 months pregnant.
Safe to say, people are not happy…
Now, pregnancy is a pretty magical thing.
Think about it – a woman grows a whole new life inside her, basically converting food into a human.
Pregnant woman are essentially walking miracles.
But these miracles come at a cost.
Those 9 months of pregnancy can be very difficult for some women.
Even telling people can be no piece of cake.
Then, of course, the common side effects begin to develop.
Insomnia, fatigue, aches and pains.
And the big one… morning sickness.
Plus, pregnancy (and parenthood) can be hugely stressful, expensive, and anxiety-inducing.
And then, of course, there are the things you have to forsake for 9 months.
Pregnant woman are advised to avoid things like eating uncooked fish or drinking alcohol.
They’re also encouraged to be very careful when it comes to exercise…
Particularly when it comes to lifting weights.
And that brings us back to today’s story…
A mom has been slammed online after she shared videos of herself lifting 315 lbs while 8 months pregnant.
People are very concerned about the baby…
Fitness trainer, Yanyah Milutinović, has been criticized for lifting weights while 8 months pregnant.
The mom of 1 regularly posts workout videos on Instagram showing how she trains while heavily pregnant.
She exercises between 3 and 6 days a week and is often joined alongside her husband, Risel Martinez.
Milutinović also holds in-person fitness training sessions for up to 12 clients every week.
Her controversial Instagram has racked up over 300,000 followers, with one of the “problematic” videos even gaining more than 260,000 views.
But despite many disagreeing with her actions, Milutinović believes she’s doing the right thing.
Speaking with The New York Post, she said: “Those little ass-clowns on Instagram can’t stop me from doing what I do. I’m unbreakable.”
“People online think I’m working out for Instagram fame or for vanity because I want to look good. But for me that couldn’t be further from the truth.”
In one Instagram post she even hit back at trolls by writing: “Imagine if I would have allowed the noise of others OPINIONS drown my inner voice? Or that I didn’t have the courage to follow my own heart, knowledge and intuition?”
“Imagine if I would have lived my life the way that they would want me to, and that I allowed comments like these to break me down? Or dictate my decisions to live a healthy life for myself and my unborn child?”
“Several hundreds of comments just like this. Daily, weekly, yearly. For 7 years now, and through two fit pregnancies.”
“None. Not a single one that held me back though. Not one, that stopped me. Instead I unapologetically did my thing, not allowing myself to be discouraged by ignorant and baseless criticism. I am confident, strong, knowledgeable, and in tune with myself and my growing child. Aware of who I am, and what I want. I am built different.”
