Train at home by yourself (run and do other cardio if you don't have any bags or anything). Don't go to the gym sniffing and sneezing and get a bunch of your training partners sick.

i trained and fight 2 amatuer games in a week with a cold then on the next week i didn't fight and train because i had my tonsil and nasal swollen and gotten a fever so i was out.
But if only a cold make sure not to get over fatigue because your immune system will weaken and your cold will get worse like what happened to me but i don't know for you because me im a sickly person i get sick easily.

if you train at a gym, please do your gym friends a favor and dont show up, you can get them sick. it annoys me when someone shows up sick, because it gives a chance for it to spread.

my trainer always told me not to train while sick because the body will take longer to get better. he told me something about how when you train, blood is used as a gateway for air and nutrients to get to your muscles. well when battling sickness, its also a gateway for any anti-bodies. so i guess if you train, the body is going to be doing two things at once, when it should focus on just attacking the virus

Sweat the cold out.

Yeah exactly, I don't box for a living but I do workout 5 days a week: I jog like 3 miles a couple times a week and for me- sweating profusely for a couple of hours seems to do the trick. I think the immune system gets a boost from accelerated cardio activity.

Of course I am not a doc, but from personal experience sweating it out always seems to work for me.

Get more rest than you do at night and I normally try to sweat it out when the illness has not yet set in, I should have been more specific...If you feel like complete crap....take it easy for a bit. If you feel like you may bee coming down with something sweat and take echinacea (an all natural herb that boosts the immune system...take it before you get sick though-like when you start sniffling and sneezing...this stuff works great and is natural with no preservatives)

Sweat the cold out.

exactly, I always feel better (provided its a cold) after I sweat like mad. Also getting popped in the nose has a way of clearing it.

Thats nonsense, your sick and you go train which can result in it getting worse or taking longer to recover. Always take a day or 2 till the sickness goes away believe me it makes you 10x better to train harder in your gym once you go back. Besides your only bound to get sick 1 or twice a year, so it shouldn't be that big of a problem.:boxing:
