My body felt the need this weekend to welcome fall in all it’s glory! Including catching a slight cold. Insert sad face here. I’m feeling extra grateful for my daily superfoods and the awesome vitamins I’m getting each day that are helping me fight this iciness. But dang it, colds still stink way hard.
So when my alarm went off at 6am this morning I had to wonder – should I even be considering working out right now? Don’t I need to rest and heal? Am I making myself more sick by pushing my body right now?
I read somewhere about the ‘neck rule’ – no, not the necking rule you silly billy. If your symptoms are above the neck – sneezing, sinus pressure, stuffy nose – then generally breaking a sweat is considered safe. So I thought I’d round up my top 5 ‘safe’ workouts when you’re fighting a cold.
