    Short Summary:
    -exercising with a fever can cause your already high internal body temperature to increase, which will only make you feel sicker.

    -if you're regularly having bouts of vomiting or diarrhea don't...for obvious reasons...

    -like Bacon said earlier; a common guideline is being sick above neck is fine but below is not.

    -usually if you have to ask the question, ‘Should I train today?’ then you should train. If you’re sick enough not to exercise, you’ll know it.

    -the reason you should work out even when you’re feeling a little sick is simply for the sake of maintaining consistency in your fitness program; to avoid losing progress

    -adjust your workout a little; keep the intensity but reduce the volume of the training exercises

    -drop any HIIT cardio training; it just elevates internal body temperature

    I don't know if it helps getting rid of the cold, but it doesn't do any harm either, if it is above the neck. You shouldn't train grappling though.
