No.

I HAVE worked out too much and made myself sick.

Nowadays I'm very aware of how getting too little sleep or being physically fatigued can affect my health

Depends on type of sickness. Some times sweating it out helps. Stomach problems are definite no, and headaches are hard to workout with; allergies also tough.

Don't exercise when sick. It can place unwelcome strain on your heart.

Very difficult when Dr's cant duagnose you properly.... Went from NCAA D.1 swimmer to casual (whimpy) workouts, its all im capable of now. Never take ur health for granted.

Thanks Matt...sorry to hear about that. Mine was just a sore throat, never got any worse. So that's good. I'm better now, too.

For the people who DO workout even when you're sick...do you notice your cold/illness hang around longer and get worse, or does working out make you feel better?ย  I worked out yesterday and today and feel decent.

Yes.ย 

I'm generally only ever sick for one day, my immune system rocks!

I even exercise when injured... I just don't use the injured thing.

Most people think I am a little nuts thoughย 

:)ย

Wow! Nice :) I really haven't gotten sick one time since I started my new healthy lifestyle about a year ago! And even now it's only a sore throat. I feel worse when I don't workout! I have fibromyalgia, and exercise really helps keep the pain away!

No. Working out when sick puts more stress on the body; you will not recover from either the sickness or the muscle strain easily. It is better to take a few days off and recover completely from the sickness, then to workout and prolong the sickness.

Nope that how injuries happen

07 Aug
What type of injuries? I worked out yesterday w/ just a sore throat, and felt pretty great. I certainly don't want any injuries though
07 Aug
You won't get an injury from training with a sore throat :)
07 Aug
Alright! I'm going to keep on shredding! :-)
07 Aug
No injuries. Just if your running a low temp and it could raise.
07 Aug
Thanks guys...I really appreciate everybody's input on this! :-)

So I decided to workout (30 Day Shred lvl 3) because I don't have a fever or anything, just a sore throat. And I feel great!! ๐Ÿ‘ Definitely made me feel accomplished. So I guess unless I'm super sick...I'll stick w/ my daily workouts. ๐Ÿ’ช ๐Ÿ˜Š

You shouldn't work hard but something like walking would be good remember you get sick because of the germs inside

When I was in the army a lot of times we had to. Sometimes I had no choice if I had to prepare for a coarse. But really your body does need some rest in the beginning but my general rule is if your fever is gone, it's time to get some exercise I like sweating things out as well. Makes me feel like all the poison gets washed out lol some type of placebo affect. But just a light walk is still exercise. So I try something like that if I'm really hurting.

That's good advice, a fever is a good sign to rest :)

Yes.

But if it was really bad, then I'd make sure to make it up afterwards.

Thanks everyone. I do all my workouts from home, so I'm not exposing anyone at a gym. I will be taking a few days off until I feel better. I appreciate all of your responses!
