I have no idea but I did watch a youtube video where ct fletcher ( professional power lifter) said his females athletes must not miss a day training even on their periods. He is a hardcore coach...

It is fine to workout on you period. For me, it can very painful and uncomfortable the first day, so I just rest for that day. Slow jogging and walking, though, can actually sooth the cramps, and stretching can do the same. Just remember to stay hydrated, and you will be fine.

The thing is that I did work out ... and it was really really painfull ... just wanted to make sure that its something normal

THat should be only on the first 2 days but if it's really hard just try to take some pills against it , my doctor gave me some……they are really helping me getting through the hard workout

I heard it's good to workout when youre having your period but I usually skip on the first 2 days.. I feel extra lazy on those days

Yeah...and I usually feel really nauseous too

Oh no then you should really not.. but I think you should still do a thorough full body stretch. helps you stay in the routine and not get into the laziness

I wish I could help but thats my off/recovery week. I take it every month no matter what I am doing.

I go for the moderate level work out during my period. I feel like a good workout helps out with mood swings..weepy,irritation,feeling  overwhelmed...good way to let off steam

Workout as your body see fit. I choose that week as a lite week (dance, leisure walk) or completely off but that is my choice because I bleed like a banshee. Your body will tell you. Try it and see.
