I posted a little while ago about how much my weekend sucked for training, and how I was beating myself up over it. But then, when I got back to the gym on monday, It was incredibly producive and I felt great.
Flash forward to today, wednesday, and I have a wicked fever, no energy, chills, headache, difficulty focusing…etc.
I’ve heard that fevers tend to burn fat more than they burn muscle, because the body just needs to burn heavier to nuke the heal up, so maybe it’ll actually a be a welcome surprise. If my muscles stick together and I don’t get too much weaker.
I did some searches, and found some decent threads, but a lot of it was inconclusive or unhelpful. Anyone have any more input about being sick while in the middle of a program, or just in general as it pertains to hypertrophy and weight training?
