When is it okay to exercise when you’re sick?

Dr. Steve J. Hartsock talks about what to do with your workout routine when you are sick? Dr. Hartsock quickly answers, “depends on what you are sick with and your symptoms.” But if you have a fever you should definitely not keep your workout. Raising your internal body temperature even higher, leading to more intense sickness. The best rule of thumb is to listen to your body.

If you do decide to workout, be sure to practice proper gym etiquette so that you don’t infect other gym-goers. If you’re not feeling energized 10 minutes into your workout, it may be best to end it early, go home and get some rest.
