Workout for Day 2-14 of your Menstrual Cycle

Workout Type: Strength Training

As oestrogen rises, start increasing the intensity of your training and start lifting heavy.

Your follicular phase is characterised by an increase in strength and also by your ability to build muscle and recover faster.

How to pick your weights:

Pick up a weight and lift it 10 times. How hard are those 10 reps? You have chosen the right weight if you can barely reach the 10th rep. If you could easily do 3 more reps, the weight is too light.


Low Row

Seated Dumbbell Shoulder Press

Single Arm Dumbbell Press

Leg Press

Wide Lat Pull Down

Last but not least, don’t forget to do your sprints.

20 second sprint, 10 second rest for 6 rounds.

If you are doing these on the treadmill try to reach a speed of 13-15.
