Should I workout if I am sick?
It’s important to rest as needed while you are sick, even while beginning of a fitness program. Working out while sick can be a double edged sword, as you are usually a bit weaker (you may need to do exercises slower or complete less reps than usual – try not to be discouraged by this), and your immune system is weakened as well – so you are often times more susceptible to getting sick again or over-straining yourself with additional stress like exercise.
Never work out when your symptoms manifest anywhere from the neck down, and please take good care of yourself to get well soon!
