Can you exercise when you are sick?
Yes...and no. The rule of thumb is if the symptoms are from the neck up you are good to go. However, if the symptoms are below the neck you should probably rest.
That is to say, if you are suffering from a head cold you can continue as normal. If you have a fever or stomach problems you should skip the gym.
Above the neck good to go.
Below the neck stay at home.
Here is a question I get pretty frequently. "What is the best workout for weight-loss?"
The reality is that there is no "best" workout. Exercise and workouts need to be tailored to the individual. Recommending one best workout is like making everyone wear the same suit. At the end of the day it just doesn't fit.
That isn't to say that there aren't best practices when it comes to losing some inches or dropping some extra pounds.
The real secret to getting the body you want is consistency. Following through on plans and staying on track day after day.
This isn't easy for any of us. We all get distracted and have trouble going to the gym or avoiding the sugary snacks. *My sugary vice is chocolate fudge pop tarts : D
However, there is hope here are some workouts that has helped me and my clients stay on track no matter what the day brings.
