How many times has it happened that you are all ready to hit the gym, determined and energised, but your period hits you? We all know that it takes a lot of motivation and effort to take out time from a hectic schedule for exercising. And when your period hits you unexpectedly, you really don't know whether to exercise or not. While some women experience discomfort and pain on exercising during periods, others find it comparatively convenient as well. Take an abs workout for instance. There are high chances that you might not be able to workout on your abs during your period. According to celebrity fitness trainer Kayla Itsines, you can train your abs during your period, but it all depends on how you feel.

Some women experience very painful periods. They must take it easy at this time and not push themselves to workout beyond limits. A person who gets extremely painful periods must avoid resistance training, writes Kayla in the caption. Some walking and stretching for a few days, until the pain lasts, is enough exercising for women during periods which are very painful.

Then, there are some women who would have some good months and some bad months in terms of periods. Good months are the ones with a comfortable menstrual cycle with fewer cramps, fewer symptoms of premenstrual syndrome, normal blood flow and less or bearable pain. The bad months, of course, can be entirely opposite of the good ones or worse than those.
