    My left tonsil is sore and hurts when swallowing (drank 2 glasses cold water yesterday) . Should I go to the gym now or wait till tomorrow. I'm doing Bill Stars 5x5 from this week on instead of my old garbage routine.

    Need advice fast cause I have to go some-when in the next 2 .30 hours if I am going to go. Thanks

    Unless today is tonsil day, I think you should go ahead and work out. If you were planning on working tonsils today, you could simply move forward your next workout, do it today, and do your tonsil workout on your next scheduled lift day.

    Sore throat and/or fever is usually a deal breaker when it comes to training, most likely you will be worse tomorow if you go lift.

    It's probably AIDS.

    But seriously, if you think it's going to interfere with your training don't go. We don't necessarily know how it will affect you.

    However, similar to what murdock00 said, whenever I haven't felt good (nausea, head aches) and I went to the gym, I never regret it after. I actually felt better during the work-out.

    It depends. Last time I was sick with the flu, I worked out pretty hard on the first day I felt good again, and that night got sick all over again, fever came back and everything. You should rest if you need it. If you just have a sore throat but no other symptoms, go work out.

    Ok whatever, I'll stop making threads the next days and then we'll see how bored you'll be and cry yourself to sleep cause you got nobody asking you stupid questions on the internet. I'm serious :mad:

    This made me lol!

    To the TS, you should be able to judge this on your own.
    Are you feeling really sick, or just a little scratchy throat?
    You know your body best.

    As long as your vagina isn't sore, then I say go for it.



    On a serious note. Wasn't there a thread about working out sick that had many posters claiming to have lifted stronger and hit prs on those days.

    Ah good, I thought I was getting boring with my threads.

    I don't feel sick at all, just my right (left is fine) tonsil is sore and hurts swallowing but now after eating again and having a tea it actually feels much better probably from all the swallowing, like muscle soreness gets better after light cardio.

    If you're sick don't train. Only you can tell whether you are sick or not.

    I think if you refine the Q, it's legit. How sick are you, that you're too sick to lift? As in if you lift, it'll make you worse off.
