    flu as in throwing up? NO. slight fever or cold..YES. Hell, I just suck it up and block out any pain. Try lifting everday on bad wrists and shoulders. Its not fun, but it has to be done....

    Ill lift if im not too sick, but lifting while really sick like flu can cause even more of a brake down in the immune system.

    Don't lift when you are sick. I got pneumonia that way once.

    Yeah. As much as I want to I just rest. I used to do crap like that. VERY VERY VERY dedicated to my martial arts. I swam and ran EVERY day REGARDLESS of the weather. It could be snowing and I would be out in the pool with a wet suit on swimming. The flu: I just took a shit load of ecanasia, contac and OJ and would be out running again. Stomache flu of course you just wish you were dead.

    In all seriousness,, it's not good to lift while your sick,,,especially while on juice. Your immune system is weaker while on a cycle.. Therefore a small illness could turn into a bigger problem then it's worth. Plus you dont really want to get everyone else at the gym sick,, unless you want to get ahead of them...
