Okay, trust me, I know, the absolute last thing that any woman wants to do when she is on her period is head to the gym for a workout!

That's why you need some ways to exercise during your period.

From the moment our menstrual cycles begin, they cause us nothing but trouble, from physical pain to emotional mood swings and everything in between.

However, even though it seems completely unnatural to do so, did you know that exercising during your period can actually be extremely beneficial?

Don’t worry, I totally get that going for a 10-mile run on day two of your period isn’t going to fly, so I have come up with a handful of different ways to exercise during your period.

1. Pilates

Pilates is the perfect form of exercise to enjoy when on your period because not only is it as gentle as the positions that you choose, but it can also relieve many of the worst symptoms of PMS.2

Pilates helps to increase blood flow, which will reduce the pain felt from period cramps, as well as bloating and irritability.

Improving your flexibility, strength and posture are also things that can help to ease the pain of a heavy period.

So if you're looking for ways to exercise during your period, give Pilates a try.
