You may not feel great on your period, but that doesn't mean you should give up on your workout routine. Just pay attention to how your body is feeling and do what you can. Elisabeth Akinwale, CrossFit guru, likes to do a light core workout when she's on her period to help alleviate period pressure.
Elisabeth's Light Core Workout*
*Repeat as many rounds as possible in 7 minutes.
Stand with feet a little more than shoulder-width apart. Extend your arms straight out so that they're parallel to the ground. Palms should be facing down. Face forward and start to bend your knees. Your butt should stick out, but keep your chest and shoulders upright.
To up the difficulty, grab a dumbbell or kettlebell and squat.
Lie flat on your back and bend your knees so that your feet are flat on the floor. Bend your arms so that your hands are behind your head. Curl up and forward towards your knees so your head, neck and shoulders are off the floor. Hold it and then lower back down. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat!
Lie face down with legs extended and feet hip-width apart. Bend elbows directly under shoulders to hold up your body. Clasp your hands together and make sure your back is straight. Then hold.
