Do you workout when sick??
Im really sick, swollen, red, infected throat, fever, etc.. I just powered through a chest/bicep/forcep workout, and feel a little better. But, is it counter-productive? Should i rest it off? I didnt want to miss any, because I was away on vacation last week, went to see the rolling stones live and visit some friends, so i didn't workout last week. (tho i kept my diet in check)

i wouldnt just because i have respect for other people in the gym. i wouldnt want to get them sick.. i know i'd be fumin if i saw someone real sick then i got sick the next day.

not only that but your body needs all the engery it has to fight the infection attacking you right now, give it a rest.

I went to the doc today, its not contagious, my throat is swelling for some unknown reason tho. He gave me epinephrin to carry with me, because he was worried its a severe allergy.

Same thing happened to me but on a back day... intensity was up cuz i was pissed i was comin down with something... back took like 4 days to recover... stay out of the gym for a little bit and i wouldn't do cardio either...

wow. sc's leg workout is hardcore bro. Not a good idea to do that type of a workout if you are sick. if you must train when sick, go easy on yourself that day

what a bad coincidence! Yesterday i began to come down with a cold, today i have a fever of 100F.......yeah, there's one side of me that wants to workout today and adhere to my schedule, but the smarter side says it isn't a good idea
