If you’ve been on a mission to cycle sync your workout, we’re right there with ya.
The luteal phase is the time when PMS enters the chat. We’re lethargic, unmotivated, and maybe a little bloated. And the last thing on our minds is an intense sweat session.

Our hormone levels are at their lowest, and we can’t pull from energy stores that just aren’t there. Wearing out our bodies while they are already working hard to prep for our period can actually turn on fat-storing genes as our bodies are less insulin-sensitive. This is definitely the time to work smarter, not harder.
Follow along with Bailey Brown’s soothing, bloat-reducing workout below to stay on track while keeping things mellow.
