Chinese soon to be Mother’s Thai Routine into late pregnancy

A pregnant woman, eight and a half months into her term, has sparked interest with her daily sparring in Muay Thai in China. The video was filmed in the city of Linyi in Shandong Province on June 26. The woman, identified as Ms Wu, is a Muay Thai instructor who has been teaching the sport for over three years. Wu explained that her husband, too, is a professional fighter. From the time before she was pregnant to now, nearly nine months into her pregnancy, she has continued her daily Muay Thai sparring sessions with her husband. The baby and her body, she said, have adapted to the high-intensity combat sport. Common symptoms of pregnancy such as stretch marks, pubic bone pain, and swelling of hands and feet have not surfaced. The committed Muay Thai instructor did her due diligence before continuing with her rigorous exercise routine. She consulted with medical professionals who advised her that boxing exercises wouldn’t greatly impact the baby. They explained that moderate exercise could even aid in delivery, though they warned against individuals without a fitness foundation attempting such practices.
