I do understand what you go through during those days of the month.

Workouts during the periods can actually benefit you more than the other days. Like how!? READ ON to find out.
My Thoughts on – Exercising During Periods
There’s an irony here when it comes to exercising during the menstrual days. You actually are unaware of the strength that maintains your health and provides you the power to tolerate all the pain. Well here is the point, if you exercise in this condition you will feel less workout strain than you usually feel on the other normal days.
You should know how the hormonal shifts occur inside the body like you lead the pack on some day whereas inactive on other days. Push yourselves harder, and get to work!
♥ Trust your Period
This is important, haha I know exactly what’s going on in your mind! (I don’t trust on anything during periods, how could you ask me to trust my period!)
That’s the point, period makes you stronger. It is said that you are more like a man during those days. Not exactly like a man, but the hormone levels are the least, which may make you feel like a dude. Also, studies have shown that women recover faster and have much better pain tolerance during the menstrual time.
Get your butts off the bed, and perform some advanced yoga. Just challenge yourselves, and as I said Trust the period!
♥ Know what is the metabolic rate of your body.
Before you start off the exercise, you must know the current metabolic rate, which gives the number of calories that you are burning in one day. It depends on factors like the diet you are following, and the amount of stress you are going through.
The week before your menstrual cycle is known as the time when you burn the highest calories in the whole month. So, if you are dieting during this time, then you will see a visible difference.
While there are some women who tend to overeat during this time, which will eventually increase the calorie intake than the required.
♥ Work out on the Bloats, and get back into shape!
Bloats are natural you ladies, this is when you will find that your body has swollen up strangely. One day you were flaunting those body muscles, and the other day you find that your body is covered with fat! That’s not fat, it is the water retention caused by the female hormone, mainly the estrogen.
To reduce this water retention – reduce the salt intake, take some herbal tea, drink more water, and also you can go for oregano seasonings.
