Working Out When Sick

How do you deal with sickness when it comes to workouts? If I’m not going to be able to do all the workouts I planned or the intensity changes for my macros for the week, should I change my calorie intake?

First of all: you gotta listen to that body. Eat if you’re hungry, don’t eat if you’re not. But do hydrate hydrate hydrate! If cold water sounds terrible, try warming it up! We’ve been known to sip on BCAA’s or get a little comfort from a warm cup of Perk Energy!

As far as activity goes: doing a little can actually boost your immunity and help with what you’ve got.

Walking

Jogging

Swimming

Biking
