Is it okay to workout when you are sick?

When your workout routine is going great and you are not rarely missing a day, then suddenly you fall sick.
Now you are in a position what should you do? Should you skip the bench press or dumbell curls? Will it be hard to start again if you skip a day or two?
Well, the answer depends upon which disease you are suffering from, experts said that if you are suffering from common cold then its okay to workout, but if you've got a fever, going to the gym is definitely no-no.

As a general guide for exercise and illness, consider this:
  • Exercise is usually OK if your signs and symptoms are all "above the neck" — symptoms you may have with a common cold, such as runny nose, nasal congestion, sneezing or minor sore throat. Consider reducing the intensity and length of your workout, though, or you may feel worse. Instead of going for a run, take a walk, for example.
  • Don't exercise if your signs and symptoms are "below the neck" — such as chest congestion, hacking cough or upset stomach.
  • Don't exercise if you have a fever, fatigue or widespread muscle aches.
