4 Easy Exercises You Can Do On Your Period

4 Easy Exercises You Can Do On Your Period
Let’s be honest, no one likes exercising when menstruating; you’re tired, annoyed, and in pain too. But trying some light exercises can actually help relieve some pain and put you in a better mood.

So get your GoPadFree™ and put on your workout clothes, plug in your motivational playlist and try these 5 super simple exercises to get your body moving and active:

  1. Cobbler’s Pose (Baddha Konasana) - The digestive system takes the brunt of your periods- diarrhoea or constipation are some common symptoms to experience. However, there’s a way to avoid these extremes. This bound angle pose soothes your system, alleviates some of the cramping, and is a very simple pose to master. Try it for yourself and see the change in your energy before and after!

 



 

2.         Reclining Twist - This pose is perfect if you experience back and hip aches. By stretching your body, you’re actually providing some pressure that will reduce the pain and the soreness. Also, the stimulation from this pose increases the blood flow to your digestive system, consequently decreasing cramping. Talk about killing two birds with one stone!

3.         Inverted Leg Pose / Viparita Karani - This pose offers multiple benefits: physically, it improves circulation, boosts energy levels, and even has a soothing effect on the nervous system. Mentally, it enhances creative thinking and problem solving, so if you ever feel like you’re in a work slump, invest some time practicing the leg pose to get into the right frame of mind.

 

4.         Pilates Lunges - It’s true, lunges can seem exhausting and monotonous, but once you’ve got the rhythm right, there’s nothing quite like it.

Lunges direct the blood flow to the larger muscle groups, which takes your attention off the center and towards the periphery of your body, thus helping you take your mind off the agonising cramps. Muscle exercises always get you in the groove, and soon enough the fatigue you were feeling from earlier will be gone.

 

While the period discomfort is real, wearing something comfortable can go a long way in motivating you to exercise. The GoPadFree™ period panties are made with OEKO-TEX® certified fabric that is gentle on sensitive skin. With our period underwear, you can exercise without worrying about rashes or leaks.
