Do/Can you work out on your period?

I know mine is about to start soon and I really don't want to stop for a week because I don't want to get lazy lol

  • hell yeah, your metabolism goes up during it (period) so if you stick to your workout and diet plan you should actually lose more that week, unless you are swimming in the ocean (it does increase your shark attack risks) you can work out on the rag with no problems.

  • It's good for you to, in my experience. If you're feeling crampy and/or fatigued, working out is a nice pick-me-up!

  • i have no problem working out when im on mine..if need be, just double up..use a tampon and a pad..that way you know your fully covered..lol..the only thing i hate doing when im on my period is goin to work..because i cant go to the bathroom whenever i need to..and it SUCKS!!! i work at a drug store, so its like, if i need to go to the bathroom i have to make sure theres more employees around, and no lineups..THEN..i can go...kinda hard to do that sometimes..so thats when i start acting sick so they send me home..lol
