How Does Your Period Affect Your Workouts?

I feel lucky because when it's "that time of the month," my symptoms are fairly mild. Aside from a little cramping and a bloated belly, Aunt Flo doesn't interfere with my life too much.

The only thing I have to do is wear a more supportive sports bra — bouncing around and soreness is not a good combo. That's just me though.
