Too Sick to Workout???

sick

So I often wonder if working out sick is bad or good, because sometimes working out DOES make you feel better even though it just sounds daunting at the time. So how do you know if you should or shouldn’t? This is what the experts suggest…

Yes, Work out if…

If you pass the “neck check” – meaning symptoms are above the neck, (runny nose, sore throat etc.. )

No, Skip the workout if…

If its the lower body, muscle aches, swollen lymph notes, fever, stomach, chills etc..

*only do what you can physically do, if you cant do it, don’t. Don’t push yourself too hard and if your sick it usually means you need to rest if for a couple days. You can get back on that wagon in a few days, things will be fine =)

Also, I’ve found out sometimes working out makes you feel better, you get to “sweat it out” and you get to bump up those feel good endorphins. Listen to your body.
