Should you work out when you’re sick?

If you only have a cough or cold, take it easy.

 

  • Give yourself permission to take a break.
  • If you have a minor cold, it’s okay to work out. If you are used to exercise and working out regularly, people can feel better with exercise.
  • Decrease the intensity and don’t push it.
  • Cardio will feel harder with a upper respiratory infection. Consider a light workout like gentle yoga or a walk.

 

If you have a high temperature or flu symptoms, take a break.

 

  • Quick Advice: The Neck check. Don’t work out if your symptoms occur below the neck.
  • When your body has the flu: chills, nausea, diarrhea or vomiting – Do not exercise until you’re feeling better and you haven’t had a fever free for 24 hours.
  • If you’re extremely tired, it’s better not to work out when you’re sick.
