    Typically I try to.

    This time around, post wheat & booze fest also known as camping, I find myself unable to stomach the thought of food, and have a raging head cold... so not this month.

    followed by a PWO snack of a high quality, good, dark chocolate bar!

    I concur with those who suggested trying for an O. Even if you can't get there, the act alone helps release endorphins, which in turn dial down the pain-o-lator.

    Hell, yes! Once I learned I burn more calories while I have my period, I started trying to pout as many active sessions in as possible. ANYTHING to burn stupid fat off. Plus, I fond it helps the whole woman-unwell symptoms. In my case, cramps, in particular are helped by high impact cardio.

    Yes I have never missed a workout when I'm on my period. I'll occasionally get cramps but even that doesn't affect my performance. I just get bloated so I try to not to wear a sports bra alone

    The lying dumbbell press is a great arm exercise for women. Not only do you get to lay down, but this exercise will truly make you feel the tricep muscle if you haven't felt it for a while!

    Yeah. Just moving around in any form is generally better then sitting around. I get more of a back ache out of my period rather than cramps (sometimes get those too but not as often) and sitting around just makes me want a big bowl full of ibuprofen. If I just go for a walk its much better. And intense exercise is fine too.

    Biologically speaking, what causes bloat?
    Don't let anybody tell you, "You can't" just because they can't.

    It's not the cramps that hold me back though, it's the severity of the flow...I don't want to bleed out all over the gym. Nobody wants me to do that!
