Your rhythmic biochemistry provides a clear road map to plan your best workouts. During each phase of your menstrual cycle, the female body is primed and prepped to respond to different kinds of exercise.
The first half of your cycle is the ideal time to focus on cardio and building lean muscle.
In the second half of your cycle, you’ll benefit from skipping HIIT style training and shifting to more resistance and strength training, flexibility and recovery.
You may even want to skip your kettlebell workout and just go for a walk or have a nap, and that is OK… it is even recommended.
Finally, you can stop beating yourself up for not doing enough. You can stop feeling guilty if you walked out or stopped your workout halfway through. I promise you.
You can do less, get better results and feel better too.
