Only women to answer!!!!
What exercises do you'll do in your periods? My stomach pains and so does my quads. I've got my periods for first time so...... What can I do?
Any kind of workout is great because you are releasing endorphins. Maybe a brisk walk outside or on a treadmill and do a couple sets of crunches.
Im in a lot of pain during my peroid sometimes i even get sick;I
But even the pain is intense i try and stick to my usual workouts:) its hard but it feels good after
Slowly stretches and less intense cycling indoors and taking pamperon pill am 2 day's before if you use period tracking app helps.
If I have severe cramps to the point I can barely move I don't work out at all. Medium cramps I do relaxed yoga, no cramps or mild cramps I just go on as usual. My grandmother's best tips for cramps was lying on the floor with legs up on a chair, 90 degree angle in hips and knees. It relaxes the back muscles and relieves stomach cramps. But the best way to get rid of cramps is actually having an orgasm.
I have bad cycles every month that are horrible. I do different tyoes crunches, walking, biking and hula hips. Exercising for me seems to keep the pain down. Just make sure you take it easy and not push to hard. That's what I do and it helps ease my cramps. I've noticed this month my pain has decreased so much.
I say listen to your body. It's generally better to be moving, even if it's just pacing around your bedroom for a few minutes. Some women say exercising makes the cramps hurt less, but tbh that's never been the case for me. I feel best with extra sleep and a heating pad. Try different things, there's no "right answer."
If you're in a lot of pain and you just need to rest for a day or two, there's nothing wrong with that. And don't worry, eventually you'll get used to this and you will figure out how to work with your body. It just takes some practice.
I do a lot of yoga, first I had really bad pain but with the yoga it is much more comfortable.
Maybe belly dancing? I know it's good when you are pregnant. I don't get super bad periods, but there are some yoga sequences for them.
I started mines when I was 10 y/o but as time went on the pain worsen over time for me.......take warm baths, drink green tea, heating pad when your cycle 1st starts......yoga/pilates before & after your cycle.....it's best to use a cycle tracking app to identify when you start & end......inbox me if you think this is an option for you
Anne J......It's helpful but I've to track my cycles cuz of my dysmenorrhea (menstrual disorder) I do it before & after my cycles
I usualy prefer yoga and some simple streching. I have smoe great news for you... Chocolate is great food when you got your period! I hope you will find this helpful!
I think it is the right time for you to take a rest. Remember, you don't need to push yourself if you can't. Your body has it's limit. And it's not a sin to rest for a while lol! Heyyy pretty, even your body deserves a gift for your hard work! :)
I think its better to take complete rest during your periods, atleast on first two days. I prefer using cup menstruelle during my periods. As it is comfortable and is reusable. You can check this online http://www.cupissima.com
When I am on my periods I get horrible cramps and usually end up laying in bed, but when I am up to it I like to do stretches that work on my stomach. If you sit with your legs extented and apart in straddle and then lean forward with a strait back it can really do wonders. The same applies if your knees are bent, open and the sole of your feet are touching.
Take a walk once a day. It helps me with the pain and makes my cycle go by faster.
I some times like to go for walks or go on a little jog after doing some
stretching. Keep staying positive
Do butterfly pose in Yoga at least for a minute.
Avoid any inversions like shoulderstand , headstand and bridge pose.
Rest should be the same :)
I created a yoga session for menstrual cramps yesterday. I haven't tried it myself yet so no guarantees! I did a lot of googling so I'm certain these poses are safe to do during your period. Sources are among others Yoga Journal. Take it easy and listen to your body!
Exercising during your period is safe and even helps in the reduction of pain in the body while working out. It's a myth that exercise at this time is harmful for the body. You can find here some best options during menstrual cycle such as usage of. It may seem like the last thing you want to do when you have your period, but working out can help relieve the symptoms that make getting your period so annoying in the first place.
