Do you refrain from working out during your period?

I avoid the gym when I'm on my period...just seems kind of gross and I am extremely exhausted around this time. It seems like I miss too many days from working out this way...what's the best thing I should do when I'm on my period to still stay active?

I go full force when I have my period unless I really feel awful. I make sure to get some extra sleep and eat well and usually use all the energy from my bad mood and harness all the pain I'm feeling (eek cramps!) and run my butt off! I feel better afterwards because of it!

If you aren't up for working out during your period that's fine. But if you want to do just "something" why don't you try a gentle yoga workout? Or go for a walk?

I second the above poster. to me if I dont go I see it as avoiding . even as far as making excuses to myself. if I am able to go and not cramping big time i hit the gym or walk.

Do some exersize that's distracting, I can't get myself to run or do the ellyptical with my period because those things let me think about how gross my pad feels, how bad my cramps hurt etc. however unless the cramps are trully awfull I find I can do a dance class and feel great afterwards, the different combinations and steps give me something to think about while I move that distracts me from the pain or grossness.

For the most part I work out, but on my heavy day (sometimes a couple days) I walk, for a long time, at a good pace. I find this soothing and not too strenuous. Particularly if the weather's nice and I can walk outside. I'm looking forward to the fall colors! It's a nice break from my regular routine and it makes my period more of a time for reflection and less stressful.

Try a tampon instead of a pad. Then it's not gross.

Exercise seems to ease cramps, and give me energy, once I start doing it. So I recommend just getting up and doing it.

Exercise is the best thing you can do for yourself while on your period! It eases cramps and gives you added energy. And I hope you aren't exercising in a pad like the above poster said, that would be gross!

On a side note, I found that since I have been exercising on a regular basis for the past 1.5 years my period is very light and I have almost no cramps. Previously it was very heavy and my cramps were very painful. I barely notice my period now!

cramps and period

Try belly dance. All that hip work really helps with the menses. It's also great for women of any and I mean any size. I have met slim women and humungous women who look absolutely amazingly beautiful as they are shaking their jelly butts. It's true! Try a class and see. It's also very good for your upper arms and your legs (and belly).

Try swimming too, if you can. It relieves the bloating and water retention too.
