how to exercise for your cycle and pregnancy with claire falconer

Listen

The fitness industry is built to serve men. Perhaps that doesn’t surprise you if you’re a regular listener, and today’s guest Claire Falconer wants us to celebrate our biological difference as cyclical women, and to put our cycle front and centre of our exercise routines. Claire says that when you understand and work with your cycle, not only do results come quicker and more easily, but you avoid longer-term health issues that can come up from gymming like a dude.

Why You Should Track Your Menstrual Cycle And How To Do It

Did you know that on average, Australian females experience between 450-500 periods in her lifetime, with the average cycle spanning between 21-35 days, and the average bleed lasting between 2-7 days?

Once we begin menstruating (at menarche – pronounced “men-ar-kee”) which occurs anywhere these days between roughly the ages of 8-15, and commonly around ages 12-13, we begin our monthly bleed (menstrual cycle) until we reach menopause which occurs approximately at the age of 50 (although again, this can occur much earlier or later as it is do individual).

After menarche our periods will be irregular for most of our teen years until the rhythm is established and our hormones settle into their natural, beautiful cycle. You might notice that some months you bleed for longer, or more heavily than other times, or that your cycle isn’t the same length each time. This is all ok – everyone’s cycle is different.
