    I've heard that exercise is good for you when you are in the early stages of a cold. Is there any truth to this? I want to keep lifting, but afraid it might make my slight cold worse.

    If you're already sick, stay home and rest.. if you feel like you might be getting sick, work out and drink a lot of water and take vitamin c/echinacea. Don't kill yourseld in the gym though, just take it easy.

    dont think its going to make your cold worse, but you will probably feel like shit

    getting rid of a cold takes rest and getting your immune system back up to par..exercise might be counter-acting this much like i just counter-acted myself

    Most of the time I just take a break and try to get better.
