    I was feeling shitty the first two days of my three day rotation but went to the gym anyway. now I'm feeling much much worse.

    does exercise exacerbate an illness (stress on the body and all that) or does it not really matter?

    I wouldn't go. Going when I'm sick tends to make me worse, plus you're passing it on to other people.

    From what I've heard, exerting yourself at about 50-60% of your average boosts your immune system. Any more than that and it will make it worse.

    Just rest up, I hate motherfuckers in there looking like rewarmed shit and coughing a lot.

    When I get sick I want to go in there and feed them 2.5lb iron pills till they die :mad:

    :hs:

    It depends. Some people can work out while sick and not skip a beat, then there are those like me who will actually get sick after a leg day because of the amount of energy expended.

    Wow FN has changed so much since I first came around.

    A few years ago 99% of the response would have been "don't be a wuss. no excuses, don't miss a workout" and stuff like that
