Do you exercise a week before your period?

In a recent article in the New York Daily News, researchers from the University of Texas at Austin and University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill say that reducing exercise a week before your period may save your knees. 

It is already known that women suffer more knees injuries than men, especially in sports.

"The researchers measured the activity of motor units, nerve fibers and the muscles they control, around the knees of seven female volunteers  aged between 19 and 35, at various point of their menstrual cycles" 

"They found that the bundles of nerves in the knee had firing rates that were significantly higher in the late luteal phase, about a week before a woman's next period, compared to earlier in the menstrual cycle. The researchers noted that this difference in firing rate could affect the stability of the joint, potentially affecting its susceptibility to injury." 

This suggests that it is preferable to reduce sports approximately a week before your period to avoid knees injuries.

Motivational Quote : Don't Give up!

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
when the road you’re trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest, if you must, but do not quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about,
When he might have won had he stuck it out;
Don’t give up though the pace seems slow—
You may succeed with another blow.
Often the goal is nearer than,
It seems to a faint and faltering man,
Often the struggler has given up,
When he might have captured the victor’s cup,
And he learned too late when the night slipped down,
How close he was to the golden crown.
Success is failure turned inside out—
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far,
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit—
It’s when things seem worst that you must not quit.
