    if you don't feel like poop and body doesn't ache, go for it.

    if anything, it'll be slightly lighter.

    you're russian, get this shit done

    i would err on the side of too long of a break as opposed to too short of one

    Well it's like this,
    when you're sick, your body is trying to be active on the inside to fight the infection/whatever it may be.
    Lifting puts more stress on the immune system.

    That being said, I've never felt WORSE (physically) because I went to the gym when I was sick.

    I always do fairly well at the gym when I'm sick. My symptoms go away and I feel pretty much spot on.

    Then after it feels like I got ran over by a truck and I can't get out of bed the next morning.

    Your body puts energy into building muscle, versus supporting your immune system.

    When you put a strain on your body, your immune system and hormones are among the first things to go.

    I was under the impression that exercise improves your immune system, no? I thought that when you exercise or "workout" your heart rate increases, along with breathing and body temperature. That will cause more of the bacteria causing your illness to be flushed from your system. Also the increase of the aforementioned responses to working out, will cause you to sweat, and sweat we know can also remove some of the harmful bacteria. Not to mention as the heart rate increases, it speeds up the white blood cells in your body that help fight off the infectious bacteria, and reduces the amount of time it takes to react to the illness.

    You also mentioned "hormones" and i'm not quite sure what you meant by that but I'll point out that working out also reduces the amount of stress in your body. Stress, releases cortisol which can bring down the immune system so therefore working out will reduce that amount released.

    While you may not feel the greatest going in while you're a little under the weather it can help speed the process of recovery by enhancing the immune system rather than reducing it.

    An intense workout causes a great deal of microtrauma to the muscle tissue. Your body has to divert some of it's resources in order to go into a repair state, temporarily weakening the immune system.
