A pregnant weightlifter is continuing her gruelling crossfit regime, just days before her due date.

Emily Breeze Watson is currently deadlifting over 90kg weights – and could go into labour at any time. The super-strong mum-to-be practices crossfit – a combination of weightlifting, gymnastics and intensive cardio – six days a week.

The 31-year-old has the full support of her husband, Martell Watson, a fellow weightlifter and fitness fanatic, and she’s encouraging other expectant mothers to stay active during pregnancy – despite heavy criticism.
