Timetable through the cycle

Week 1.

Menstruation. The cycle of a woman lasts between 26 and 35 days and starts with the first day of the rule. The uterus repels the mucous membrane with the unfertilized egg, estrogen and progesterone are low. Gentle sports such as yoga or walking helps to alleviate any pain. But be careful on day one and two if you're not feeling well.

Week 2.

A follicle is maturing. Estrogen production in the ovaries increases, causing a follicle to mature. At the same time, the uterine lining rebuilds and prepares to pick up an egg. Between the 12th and 14th cycle day ovulation occurs, the egg moves into the fallopian tube funnel. Now the desire for sex is greatest. At the same time we are full of energy and strength: ideal for intensive training and muscle building.

Week 3.

Fertilization. The egg is now moving towards the uterus. It takes about 24 hours. A fertilization would happen now. Progesterone is now increasingly being produced to maintain the built-up lining of the uterus for implantation. The combination of increasing progesterone and decreasing estrogen during training ensures that now fat is better broken down. You can also really like to exhaust yourself, the body regenerates quickly.

Week 4.

Premenstrual. If the egg remains unfertilized, estrogen and progesterone levels fall again, the lining of the uterus begins to detach. This leads to many to PMS, the breasts stretch, one is irritated. Gentle relaxation and breathing exercises and endurance sports such as slow running, walking or even swimming are ideal for the body and mind.
