Ok ,so I started my monthly cycle and my cramps are so painful What workouts can I do?
I started this morning and the next two days my body shakes, I feel weak and hard to do my workouts.
With body shakes it sounds you're not getting enough iron.. - as you're loosing it all through the process. Try and eat foods high in iron.
Umm cramps would be painkillers but not paracetamol or ibruphen.. they don't touch it for me. Do the one which is designed specifically for that purpose.
But what helps is swimming/ running / jogging/cycling , as soon as your in your own little world and focusing on something else .. you'll be fine. :)
Walking, yoga and of course, the stretches. Stay active. Sweat. Drink lots of water. Cramps are hell but do your best to not let it get in the way of your fitness goals. :-)
I do my normal routines. I find that continuing to workout even though im cycling makes me feel so much better. I love cardio!
