The effects of aerobic exercise and strength training on premenstrual symptoms were evaluated in 23 healthy premenopausal women. Premenstrual symptoms were assessed at baseline and following 3 months of exercise participation. Women who engaged in aerobic exercise significantly increased their aerobic capacity, while the women who participated in non-aerobic exercise did not. Results showed that while participation in both exercise conditions was associated with general improvement in many premenstrual symptoms, subjects in the aerobic exercise group improved on more symptoms, especially premenstrual depression.
