    Ok ladies, it never fails...when I get back into the swing of excercising it seems like i always get a cold or sinus infection. Is it healthy to do cardio or work out in general when your body is already down?

      I do. I take martial arts and I find tha tit helps to clear out my system. It will make you have more energy too. Atleast I do.

        Yes, I do. I find that it gives me a energy boost. Plus I start to feel better. But just keep in mind if you start feeling worse then take a day off or something.

          I also try to work out when sick because it usually clears me up and makes me feel better. Even though it's really hard to get on that elliptical when sick!

            I think it all depends on how sick I feel. If I'm weak their is no way I will lift weights or workout in general. If it's just a head cold then I will.

              I usually do, but like Tammy said it depends on how sick I am. If my body is very weak forget it.

                I never workout when I'm sick. It always makes me feel worse or delay me getting better. Your immune system is already down....that's why you're sick.

                I know there is a trainer on here. I can't remember her name (sorry!!). Maybe she'll jump in here and tell us what's best =)

                I have been told that if the symptoms are above your belly then you are supposed to keep working out. It builds up endorphins and helps you fight off sickness. If it's more flu like symptoms... don't even try it!

                  I generally don't. I'm actually sick right now with fever and body aches and I am going to skip my yoga class tonight otherwise I might pass out!

                  are you kidding I don't even exercise when I am healthy, no just kidding if its just sinus' I think you are okay, but otherwise I think you should just rest, maybe just walks or something not too intensive.
