    Yea man, if you're sick, get as much rest as possible. The sooner you get well, the sooner you can continue training.

    Same thing with an injury. I'm a runner, and I've seen a lot of people keep going out and running on an injured ankle/knee, and instead of waiting for it to heal completely they train for a race that is coming up soon and end up hurting themselves even more. Resting when you need to rest and missing a week or two of training and maybe a competition is a lot better than pushing through those weeks.

    I've seen too many people try to push through and end up hurting themselves even worse causing them to have to give up the sport that they love because they didn't want to take the time to recover.

    And as far as illnesses go, most types of training weaken or 'damage' your body, and then the body builds itself back up to be able to better handle the strain that you put on it. Damaging your body while you are sick is simply an invitation for that illness to get worse and last longer. You want your body in the best possible condition to fight whatever illness you have.

    (To sum this all up: Rest when you are sick. Train when you are well) :)

    When I was sick I did some light training at home hitting the heavy bag.. I've always heard that it was good because it increase white blood cells or something like that. Anyway, I always feel better..

    Well, I say if you're running a fever, having diarrhea, puking or feeling like crap then don't train. Most of the time people have viral illnesses and you can be contagious for a week before you're symptomatic. Then when you feel like shit you're not contagious anymore. So, I figure, whatever you've got, I'll get from somebody at work or from one of my kids anyway. If you feel like you can train, then train. If its a skin infection like staph or ringworm then wait until that's gone, of course.

    people who train while sick, have staph, have ringworm, or god forbid a herpes gladiatorum outbreak, should be sent home immediately. Don't be that person and don't let those people on the mat. Nothing good can come of it.

    Ok I was thinking the same thing just wasn't sure. Thanks for the help though
