SHOULD YOU WORK OUT IF YOU’RE SICK?

The odds of catching something during the winter months are high, and if you get sick your workout routine might have to change. The decision to exercise when you’re not feeling well depends heavily on what your body is fighting off. Learn how to “read” your immune system and figure out just how much your body can handle with these tips.

THE COMMON COLD.

A runny nose and sneezing is typically not enough to keep you from working out. Symptoms of a common cold, including nasal congestion and a slightly sore throat, can actually benefit from a low-intensity workout. Staying active when you have a cold may help to improve your immune system and make you feel better. If you do workout, it’s important to remember not to push yourself too hard: With your immune system compromised you won’t have the same stamina and energy as you usually do.

You should try to workout at home to prevent your cold from spreading to others. If you go to the gym, make sure to wipe down all the equipment before and after you use it with a disinfectant to kill any lingering germs. I like to take Clorox wipes rather than use the soggy sheets at the gym.

If You have High Fever, Fatigue, and Muscle Aches.

Severe symptoms such as a high fever, shortness of breath, or intense muscle aches are signs that your system is fighting off a virus and also signs that you should stay in bed (or at least out of the gym and off the road). You will limit your body’s ability to rid itself of the illness if you are pushing yourself to exercise — you’ll be using valuable fuel and energy on your workout instead of on fighting the virus. Listen to your body and stay in: Avoid prolonging the illness by allowing your body to rest and recover.

Once your symptoms have subsided for at least 24 hours, feel free to slowly begin to exercise again. Don’t go too hard on the first day, you don’t want to relapse.

You’re Experiencing Vomiting or The Big D.

Stomach bugs can lead to severe dehydration as a result of excessive vomiting or diarrhea. When you exercise in this condition, the sweat loss will only continue to dehydrate your body. Give yourself a break if you are experiencing these symptoms and swap working out for resting and drinking fluids.

When you start to feel better you can gradually return to your regular workout regimen. Consult a physician if you’re not sure when you can begin exercising again.

DO YOU WORKOUT WHEN NOT FEELING WELL? WHEN DO YOU DECIDE TO STAY HOME? USE WIPES AT THE GYM?

    Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and
    tested to see if it can survive a thirty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she
    has 83 views. I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
