Exercise with Endometriosis

Exercise For Endometriosis

When you have a condition such as endometriosis which is an inflammatory condition, the last thing you want to do is add more inflammation.
When we exercise at high impact with things such as heavy weight training, HIIT training or running, we increase inflammation in the body. Therefore, it’s a good idea to choose options such as yoga, pilates or LISS when you are in the week before your period. This will help to keep this inflammation as low as possible during a time that is going to cause the most distress.
This of course means tracking the cycle so you know exactly when to do what, and planning that in.
Using this method also conserves energy at the right time of the month, to allow you to have a better performance once your period is over.
Also, listen to your body! If you are too tired to exercise just before or during your period, don’t do anything !! The body obviously needs rest, so give it what it needs! It’s getting to know the difference between ‘can’t be bothered’ and my body is just too tired !
