There are things in our lives only women can understand. Period – is definitely one of them. Despite the range of products to help us deal with it these days, there are some things which still influence our usual ways of living when we are on period.
In case, you are thinking about cramps and discomfort, we must disappoint you – today we are going to talk about the interaction between your period and workout routine. Very many women try to stay as far away from exercising as possible when the period season hit. And, if you are one of them – you couldn’t be more wrong. The thing is that it is only a myth that you can’t work out when you are on your period, you can and you actually need to. And we will tell you why.
#1 Ease the symptoms
The thing is that if you keep your usual workout routine even when your period starts, the chances are great that it will be milder than the one when you skipped your visit to the gym. First of all, physical activity makes you stop thinking about the pain, second of all – you lose water, which makes you reduce belly bloating which leads to cramps and discomfort.
#2 Better result
The research proved that the intensity and the result of those who decided to work out during their periods were far greater than just average.
#3 Cool down
When you are on your period your body temperature lowers and that means that you can take high temperatures better. That is another reason why you should give in to the workout routine when you are on period.
Many women are scared away with all the discomfort that period comes with. Yet these days there is no limit of options to ease all the discomfort and eliminate all the negative outcome. Period-proof underwear, painkillers, pads, cups, tampons…the list can go on.
#5 Listen to your body
Last but not least, you should not force yourself into it. In case you don't really feel like working out – give yourself a break.
