What’s your workout?
With so many options, everyone can be active and exercise in their own way! It’s all about finding your style, knowing what works for you, and being consistent with it – while having fun along the way. So, are you a cardio junkie, a strength training addict, or a bonafide yogi? Check out how those workouts can help you and how to choose which might be right for you.

Why we love cardio
Cardio is awesome for dropping the pounds, keeping you conditioned, and making you faster and more agile. The two main forms of cardio are low-intensity steady state cardio (think long-distance running) and HIIT (high intensity interval training). Light cardio is one of the best exercises you can do while on your period!
Benefits: improved heart health, better muscle recovery, keeps you lean, best exercise while on your period
Why we love strength training
Strong is the new sexy, and muscles are in. Strength training is crucial for creating muscle tone – and no, it won’t make you bulky. What it will do is boost your self-esteem, help you keep the weight off, build stronger bones, and so much more. In the week after your period ends, hormone levels are perfect for strength training– you just might set a new personal best in the weight room!
Benefits: builds muscle, builds confidence, creates lines of definition, best workout to do after your period
Why we love yoga
Yoga is amazing for flexibility, core stability, and creating awareness in the body. Yoga might seem like it’s just relaxing, but there are a ton of strengthening, detoxifying, and energizing poses that will challenge you and make you stronger! Of course, there are also plenty of low-impact sequences – which are especially helpful during that time of the month when you might not be feeling your best. There are even poses that can reduce menstrual cramps and banish bloat! Try bow pose, bridge pose, half moon pose and down dog to feel relief from Aunt Flo.
Benefits: creates long and lean muscles, develops core strength and balance, can reduce cramps and bloating
As you can see, there are perks to each workout! Which one will you try?
