Should I exercise when I'm sick?

There is nothing worse, than having good momentum with your fitness journey, whether it be that you are enjoying the classes, seeing some results and improving with each and every day, and feeling great then, BAM, you struck down with an illness, commonly being the cold or flu. And so the age old question continues to this day, of wondering if we should exercise when we are sick or not. Will it make us better? Will it make us worse? Will it affect my performance? Should I just push through? Let's be honest, if there still isn't even a cure for the common cold, then exercise isn't going to cure you, so we can put the question of 'will it make me better' to rest. But wouldn't it be great if

Why it's important to stay active during Winter

Let's face it, most of us start to lose our motivation to exercise when the temperature starts to drop.

So thinking that if you did 1000 crunches per day will give you a that flatter stomach or much wished for six pack unfortunately is a myth. Actually, completing 1000 crunches per day may actually lead to other issues (especially if not doing the crunches correctly, or combining with other abdominal muscle exercises).
