Crossfit Dublin workouts for the week

 In WOD

Sharing is Not-Caring

With the arrival of cold and flu season, many of you will at some point, find yourself sniffling and sneezing, sitting on the couch wondering if you should go in for a work out ?

I’ll answer with an emphatic – NO! For one very obvious reason, and another a little more selfish.

Firstly: A sick workout is a wasted workout.

When you get sick, and you start to feel tried, get the sweats or the chills, the aches, pains, coughs and sniffles, your body is hard at work marshaling its energy to rid itself of some foreign bacteria or virus. When its under attack, or threatened or stressed , your body’s main priority is getting well. Franning it up at the gym while sick will not only result in a mediocre performance, but it’ll take valuable resources away from your body’s recovery effort. So, one the one hand you get a crappy workout. On the other you stay sick longer.

And Secondly: Sharing is not-caring.

When you get sick and come to the gym, you bring along your sneezes, snot and phlem for the rest of us to enjoy. Coughing into your hand and touching barbells and pullup bars and chalk buckets…I’m pretty sure that’s how Typhoid got started.
