On cylcle, get sick...work out?

  1. On cylcle, get sick...work out?


    I seem to have caught a cold of some sort. Sneezing and snotting all over the place. On t cycle of 400mg/ week.

    Should I keep lifting or take a couple days off? I feel relatively okay other than the snots.

    Survey says...


  2. Not sure if its the healthiest advice but it works for me when I get alil under the weather. I use those emergencee packs and take extra immune supports twice a day. "Super Immune +" is what works for me . I go lower weight/ higher rep and try to sweat out alil light cardio afterword without getting too fatigued(4mph at 15% incline on treadmill is my thing)Plenty of fluids of course and I drink tons of green tea with raw honey all day. That's pretty much my ritual and I feel it at least helps get me thru it faster.

  3. No Idea if this is true but a doc told me once when I asked this same question. She said that if the cold is still only in my head/neck it's ok to train. If it has proceeded into the chest, then you're too far gone and should rest. This was at an urgent care clinic so take it for what you will. Personally if its just a head cold I still go lift.

    I saw that online as well. Makes sense.

    I've been told the same thing. I take gut health regularly so when I feel something coming on I take an extra cap a day and turn up the intensity and try to sweat it out before it advances too far.
    Never shall innocent blood be shed, but the blood of the wicked shall flow like a river.

    i wouldnt do that. if you exercise while sick, you risk spreading the bacteria or virus to the chest and getting an infection there. then youre basicly ****ed for awhile

    do you think your sickness is andro flu by chance?. id personally sit it out for a few days and see if it goes away

  7. Unless I'm throwing up or at imminent risk of sh*tting myself I will usually lift even if I don't feel 100%. May just lower the intensity a bit

    You may be right...but you know how hard it is to stay out of the gym sometimes

    Yeah Google "test flu" your body rebelling against the sudden high concentration of androgens. It should pass if that's it

  11. yea probably test flu. i felt like **** for a week but i still went to gym 5 times

  12. Got M1T flu long time ago, was a gnarly couple days.

  13. Loaded up on pseudofed, Mucinex, and bemadryl. Going to try to hit the gym after work.

  14. I basically had the same question. I just got sick.
    wk1-4 SD (30ED)
    wk 5-12 Trenavar (60-90ED)
    I am at week 6 of cycle. This is for sure a real cold as many other had it just prior.
    Just recently breathing has become a challenge so I decreased Trenavar from 90 to 60 ED and so far have skipped two workouts. I hope to go back to normal by the end of this week, breathing dependent. I am considering getting some Bronkaid to see if I could get back on track quicker.
