One Virginia dad-to-be took pregnancy empathy to another level when he decided to don a fake baby belly while working out with his wife at their Virginia Cross Fit gym.
When 9-months pregnant, Kristin Milchuck headed out to the gym every morning six days a week with her husband Blake Milchuck. One day, one of the couple’s coaches at at CrossFit Krypton in their hometown of Chesapeake, Virginia, suggested that Blake sport a faux belly to really see what it’s like for his wife at the gym.
He strapped a 14-pound medicine ball with duct tape and began their work out, which included running, modified burpees, rowing and biking.
The gym made a video of Blake’s workout which quickly went viral on Instagram with more than 18,000 people watching the funny video.
