A pregnant woman has inspired men to hit the gym after showing her workout skills with a 10-pound medicine ball while in the 40th week of her pregnancy.
Michelle Duboc, a CrossFit coach, shared the stunning clip on her Instagram, which showed her male CrossFit members working out at her gym, and she seemed to have impressed them.

The pregnant Duboc was doing the annual Murph Challenge with her members on Memorial Day to honor Lt. Michael P. Murphy, a U.S. Navy SEAL killed in Afghanistan.
Duboc's husband and other males decided to make this year's edition by mimicking the challenges of working out while pregnant, and they admitted that it was a tough thing to do.
Each man had a 10-pound medicine ball wrapped around their waists, and Duboc remarked that it was a pleasant sight to see the men experience what it felt like to be pregnant and working out.
In the now-viral clip, the male gym members could be seen competing with Duboc on the Murph challenge's 2-mile run, 300 air squats, and 200 pushups with the 10-pound medicine ball strapped to their waist.
The video quickly became a hit on the social media site TikTok, gathering thousands of views.
Duboc's husband, Gian Franco, a coach and co-owner of the CrossFiit Unbounded, praised his wife for being a source of motivation. She stated that she had always been inspiring, even before her pregnancy.
Franco revealed that he came up with the idea to have the men have a 10-pound medicine ball on their waist, and it has kept each male member up and running with inspiration.
This would be the first time Duboc is sharing her fitness journey on her Instagram during her pregnancy. While she was expecting her first child, she stayed private in a bid to avoid negativity.
Duboc decided to let others know the importance of exercising during pregnancy and has been sharing workout videos since the start of her pregnancy journey.
While Duboc has received praise from her followers for her inspiring clips, she has also been bashed by some fans who think her example might be endangering the lives of other pregnant moms.
In another beautiful story, a pregnant mom showed her athleticism by running a mile under six minutes while in the 9th month of her pregnancy. The video quickly became a hit on the social media site TikTok, gathering thousands of views.
Another pregnant fitness instructor quickly became an internet sensation after a picture of her baby bump was compared with another woman's. Chontel Duncan explained that she does her best to keep fit and hopes to inspire other pregnant women to do the same.
