Workouts for when you are sick



If you’re feeling a cold coming on, it is important to find ways to keep the fitness part of your routine. Here are ways to help keep your body moving:

1. Walking and jogging

2. Light swim

3. Yoga

Do avoid gym machines or lifting weights – your body needs to build energy back up, and no need to expose yourself to more germs.

If you have a fever and chills, it’s important to head back to bed and get the rest your body needs. But when you are ready to get a small workout, be sure to hydrate and take it slow with low impact.
