Hands Stretching

While the menstrual phase is a great time *hormonally speaking* to get in a great workout - in my personal experience and through working with women, during the beginning days of this phase, energy and motivation to hit it hard are commonly low.
Rather than forcing a more intense workout just because hormones might be in a good place to handle it, I've found it much more productive to program gentle and supportive movement early on.

These specific poses will get the blood flowing to the organs that are most commonly affected by PMS, improve digestion, and ease possible cramps, headaches, anxiety & other common PMS related symptoms.

This session is designed to give you energy rather than take from it, and set you up for success to continue on with your workouts all month long!

Your metabolism is nearing one of it's slowest points in your cycle which is why cardio is perfect at this time.

It'll get the heart rate up, get the blood pumping, reduce stress and inflammation, and re-introduce your body to some intensity after a slow luteal phase without pushing it too much just yet.

It's all in preparation for what's to come :)

Bonus points if you’re able to do it outside!
