Ok ,so I started my monthly cycle and my cramps are so painful What workouts can I do?

05 Jul
Honestly you can do any workout, its no different, other than using feminine products while doing so. Pop some pain killers and do your best. Though if it's really bad, pilates, yoga and walking :)

Also stay tight on your diet, don't let those cravings get a hold of you. Good luck!

I find when I'm cramping walking the treadmill and biking actually help. 

Even if you don't workout, the most important thing is to stay with your healthy eating. Don't give in to the sweets, and junk

I'm on day 3 right now and yesterday was horrible, but I did what I could and made sure my eating was good.

I started this morning and the next two days my body shakes, I feel weak and hard to do my workouts.

I would just take it easy if it takes that kind of toll on your body. Just watch your food intake a little closer til you are up to working out

There are yoga moves that reduce cramping, maybe google it??  I used to have an app for that but it was on my previous phone and I don't remember the name.

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. :)

I never thought it would be because of low iron >.< thanks for the advice! (:

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!

running or jogging could help...I used to jog esp when I have red alert and it eliminates d pain...I had cramps before during cycle and taking pain relievers but when started exercising esp running/jog it surprised me I didn't taking any pain killers now as long as I'm active on my routines...

Maybe if i do cardio it should probably get the pain away. Sometimes it's because we're not active.

Stretch often and gentle walking. Dont do intense start with walking then jogging then running and so on it should take a few months at the most.

Ok, so I have a whole army of tips. I struggle with the same thing. Painful!!!  
Tip #1: drink lots of water
The water makes sure your movin along nicely on the inside.  
Tip #2: drink raspberry leaf tea. 
It has iron which waters down your blood, making cramps less painful. 
Tip #3: get out for short, easy walks. 
It is best to stay away from your normal exersizes, but walking helps sooth your stomach. 
Tip #4: take homeopathic cramp pills. 
You can find them at whole foods, vitamin cottage, ect. They are all natural and saved my insanity! 
Tip #5: EAT CHOCOLATE!!! 
Aside from the normal wonderful feeling it gives you, chocolate is a laxitant, so your body relaxes. 
Tip #6: take hot baths or lay warm rags on stomach. 
The heat helps with cramps, helps you to relax.  

Hope they help, it's kinda a mouthful! 
Happy relaxing!

Thank you I'll keep those in mind (:
