A video of a pregnant woman participating in an impressive reveal of her baby's sex—popular among Crossfit trainers last year—found renewed interest on the internet.

The reveal involved individual packs of blue or pink powder attached to barbells. After being lifted and dropped, the packs smashed and revealed the baby's sex.

Last June, Instagram user @da_lov3d_on3 posted the video of herself lifting a set of barbells like a champ.


She wore a white mini-dress showing her baby bump for the stunt that took place in a public park as friends looked on in anticipation.

After successfully raising the barbells overhead, she dropped the weights and caused an explosion of bright pink-colored powder when it hit the asphalt.

The excited mother was embraced by her cheerful friends.

Those who missed the video the first time around expressed their enthusiasm for her superwoman strength.
