Cloth Pads, Working Out and Immunity

The F Wrap Workout with Heidi Miller

Heidi and me.

With guest blog by Heidi Miller of AIM Fitness.

 

I was asked once, “How does The F Wrap hold up during a workout?  Doesn’t it fall out of place?”

My response was “No, of course not.  It is fine to wear during a workout.”

Then I asked myself ‘Am I 100% sure about that?’  I mean, let’s be honest, I don’t remember the last time I worked out during my period.  I’m sure I have, but I couldn’t remember.  Which means, it’s possible I have not, or at least I couldn’t say with certainty that The F Wrap would stay in place during a high intensity workout.

The person who asked me this question is personal trainer, Heidi Miller of AIM Fitness.  I then asked if she would like to give me a workout the next time I’m on my period, so that we could put The F Wrap to the ultimate test.  She agreed!  In fact, she developed a one hour workout made specifically with cloth pads in mind.  It included fire hydrants, lunges, jumping jacks and yoga poses like the one legged downward dog and pigeon pose.  You know, a bunch of moves that require lower body twisty movement.

It was a good workout!

I am happy to report, with 100% confidence, that The F Wrap held up to the challenge!  My pad did not move, slip or bunch.  It stayed in its place during the entire workout.

I will mention one important factor though.  Any cloth pad will only fit as well as the underwear it’s attached to.  Meaning, if your underwear is too big or too small, a cloth pad may shift or move.  Proper fitting underwear is important.

Something surprising happened to me after my workout with Heidi.  Two days later I came down with the flu.  This was not your usual summer cold, it was a nasty flu, which took almost a week to recover from.  If you didn’t already know this, I am a holistic nutritionist.  I eat a healthy diet, and like to think that my immune system is top notch.  I started wondering if there was a reason I got so sick, and I remembered my workout.  It was a very intense workout for me.  I am normally an active person, but I will confess that recently I have not been working out.  The exercise I did with Heidi was a lot more than anything I’d done in a long time.

I asked Heidi if she thought the workout could have somehow suppressed my immune system, causing me to become ill.

Here is her response…

 

“To be honest, I didn’t know the full answer to this question before Karen asked me. As a personal trainer I wanted to say ‘no of course not, exercise is great for you, obviously’. The problem is that, as someone who believes that true professionals admit when they don’t know something, but then learn about it, and someone who did very well academically in College, I knew I had to put the research in to answer this question.

A quick Google search gave me a bit of the answer but I didn’t feel that was enough. So after reading multiple articles I have my answer.

There is a short answer to this question that is; Yes, under the right circumstances exercise can make you more susceptible to some illnesses.

Leaving it at that however didn’t sit well with me. As a Certified Personal Trainer and fitness/exercise enthusiast I had to dig deeper. So if you want to increase your own knowledge, read on for the long answer.

Exercise can stimulate the release of certain hormones (cortisol and epinephrine, aka adrenaline) that suppress the immune system. This is because these hormones temporarily redirect the body’s resources to the organs and tissues needed to sustain the activity being performed. It is however important to note that, while these hormones are released during more intense exercise, a program that builds progressively according to a person’s individual fitness level will result in less of these hormones being released during exercise over time. A take home message from this is that, when beginning an exercise program start slow and build up gradually to more advanced and intense exercise.

Additionally it is important to note that this is temporary! Your body will return to its normal range and your immune system will no longer be at risk. This is a great reason to practice good hand washing hygiene after an intense work out so as to help protect ourselves from the actual causes of illnesses like germs.

I looked for evidence on the long-term long-term effects of exercise on the immune system. There does not appear to be a direct link between exercise and increased immune system function, although there are multiple theories about ways that exercise contributes to increased immunity. However, research and health professionals agree that being physically active has numerous health benefits and that our bodies function better overall (including the immune system) when we maintain a healthy weight, good blood pressure, good cholesterol levels and much more, all of which can be improved and maintained with a good exercise regimen.

One last part to this is that there is such a thing as exercising too much which does put our immune system at risk. Excessive exercising can cause almost a constant state of increased stress hormones in the body that reduce our ability to defend itself. The take home message regarding this is, after intense physical activity allow your body adequate time to recover.

As an aside I exercise on a very regular basis and I almost never get sick. ”
