Are you sick? Stay home.
This is the season for colds and flus, for sore throats and runny noses. Do you think you feel a bit run down and might be coming down with something? Are achy and coughing and wondering if you should still come in for a workout?
Here is a definitive answer: NO!
When you are germy and infected… you probably need more rest than you do another workout. And think about others… you have the possibility of passing on your sickness to many unsuspecting athletes. As you find it hard to swallow with that swollen and infected throat during your 500m warm up… the person right next to you has no idea that you decided to come in and attempt to “sweat it out.” Better for you to stay home and catch up on some sleep instead. If you are unsure of your contagiousness… stay home and do a body-weight workout: burpees, air squats and sit ups. If you feel better the next day- then maybe you are ready to come back to the Hut. If not- take some rest days and come back when you are feeling 100%. Thanks for the cooperation.
Along the same lines: please be more vigilant about cleaning and wiping up after yourself post-workout. Anytime you leave behind sweat- on the ground, pull up bars, barbells, DB and KB… that should be wiped up with some simple green and a towel. Or spray down the floor and use the wet mop. If you have been bleeding- use a bleach wipe to disinfect anything you might have touched. Thanks in advance.
