I have a slightly elevated body temperature, congestion in my chest, and a bad cough, but I feel very strong and healthy – hard to imagine, I know. I really want to work out, my body craves it as does my mind, but I fear I’ll turn my little cold into pneumonia. I’ve read of the “above the neck rule” which means if your symptoms are above the head (stuffy nose, etc) you’re fine to work out, but if they are below (fever, chest congestion) you should avoid exercise, so I'm staying clear of the gym for now. I’d like to ask how others determine if they are too sick to work out.

yeah, general rule is "in the head, go ahead. below the chest get it checked."

how i determine it is if i feel like i can workout at the same intensity when i'm not sick. there are times when i just go, i can't do it. id rather not go then have a terrible lift. like for example with a chest cold, if i am having trouble breathing, hurts to breathe or get out of breathe quickly, no way im going.

It makes absolutely no sense to pummel your body to the floor. If you are sick, you take off for a few days, plain and simple. By you training, you are only throwing more stress load on your body and you will only delay your recovery. You will not lose muscle by not working out for 2-3 days. Get a grip bro, lay off the weights and recuperate properly. If not, you can always be hard-headed and go and train and take 5 days to heal, your call kid.

Ahhh....nothing worse than seeing someone sick in the gym. As if there isn't enough germs already. :banghead:

Give your body a chance to recover and take a break from the gym. Far better to rest now than to risk things getting worse and developing "man flu".

Besides, theres nothing worse than going to the gym, doing your thing then leaving knowing you've only put a half assed session in.

Take a break, recover, and hit that place twice as hard when your ready.
