  • Anna Mateaki says:

    Yes! I used to have bad cramps but when I started exercising during I no longer had cramps and felt so much less bloated

  • Urmila Santosh says:

    For me every month is a different story… Last month I was on high energy and was doing super sets and circuits and lifting weights. This month… Now…I am so tired and my cramps has been horrible and my body just doesn’t seem to want to listen to me… I feel tired and my lower body aches the most. But I have been doing your 10 minute abs workout in bed followed by walking in the morning and later I do 40 minutes of Stationary bike at the gym. These are fine for me.. as of tomorrow onwards I am planning on strength training but mostly sticking to low impact.
