Becky Lynch Was Training For In Ring Return Three Days After Giving Birth
Posted By: Joe West on Oct 13, 2021
Becky Lynch was a guest on Out of Character with Ryan Satin, where she revealed what was going through her head when she had to take a leave of absence due to pregnancy.
"Sometimes, I think I'm a glutton for punishment because I love a challenge. Stepping away, I knew that I'd be losing my top spot, so it was a challenge. I envision everything as a Rocky montage, right? Coming back...how can this be a Rocky movie? I like that challenge of going away, being away for a year and a half, and then coming back and wondering if I could still be able to go and if I still wanted to go. If everything was going to change and maybe I would just want to be at home. I didn't know. I didn't know how anything was going to go, but it genuinely made me hungrier."
I was probably 60%, I was going to come back, but there is that 40%. I don't know how I'm going to be as a mother. I know how I am as a single woman with no other real priority, but as a mom and as a person in charge of a tiny being, I didn't know how I was going to be and if it was going to change me so much that I would be like, 'You know what, maybe I just want to be at home now.' I do not want to be at home."
The next question she was asked was how soon she returned to the gym following giving birth.
"As soon as I gave birth. I shouldn't have done it, you're not supposed to do it, but I was doing yoga three days later and I was in the gym a week later. You're not supposed to do that. Don't do what I did, but that's what I did. You're not supposed to do anything for six weeks. Not that I was completely bored, but I was itching to get back in the ring. I missed it. I was never saying, 'I want to go back,' but I just didn't know how I was going to feel once I had the baby. Then I wanted to get back in shape and was ex cited to get back in the ring. Then, it wasn't really until two months after she was born that I was like, 'I'm ready to go back on the road now.'"
