    No, do not go to the gym. Rest it out, recover and get past the flu.

    Just rest and get better bro! If you go to the gym now, you will just make the illness worse thus having to take even more time off.

    Stay away from the gym till you feel better, you'll only end up feeling worse. Also it would be a dick move to go and end up getting others sick.

    As most other people have said stay away from the gym till you recover because iv tried going to gym with cold/flu and it only makes it worse and you feel worse if you don't have a good session because of feeling ill therefore having less energy to recover from the flu

    You are a total dick hole if you go to the gym with the flu. You are going to spread it and get other people sick. I hate people who go to the gym sick.

    Good rule of thumb is if you're sick below the neck DON'T workout. If it's just a stuffy nose or a sore throat, technically you can but I still wouldn't recommend it. It's extremely inconsiderate to go to a a gym and spread your infection around. Even if you wipe stuff down you're still potentially spreading the virus and not even aware of it. A cough or a sneeze can send a virus up to 15 feet away from you and it's difficult to keep track of everything you touch or breathe on. Just stay home and don't be a dick.
    -Only one thing in existence has the power to tell you that you can't. That thing is the mind. For it is the mind that manifests our reality, and nothing else.

    Stay out of the gym or else you will regret it. I thought I could muscle through a slight cold last month. Hit the gym did some heavy lifting and ended up with a full blown flue for a month straight. Plus you're not going to be in top condition so you'll only end up being disappointed by your lifts. I'm a powerlifter and strength goes down much faster than muscle mass. Taking 2 weeks off made my lifts go down 20lbs. It's a whole lot better than having to take a full month off because you were too stubborn to stop lifting.
    Bodybuilding like powerlifting is a marathon not a sprint. If all you're worried about is today you'll totally ruin your body and miss out on tomorrow.
