You feel sick? With these signs, you should take a break from sports!

Krank und Sport Grippe kein Sport

You feel sick? Maybe it is better to take a break from sports?

It doesn’t matter whether you have a mild cold, a flu infection or the flu. In any case, your body is weak because it is fighting against it. Sport does not make sense at this time because you need the energy to get well again.


Fever is often a sign of a flu or flu-like infection. Coming in and then adding body aches is a clear sign that the infection has spread throughout the body. Bed rest and a sports break are necessary. Otherwise, life-threatening heart muscle inflammation can result.


A short-term cough is usually a sign of a harmless cold and is accompanied by a cold. However, if the cough occurs in connection with swollen lymph nodes and body aches, caution is advised. Sport is then taboo.

Sore throat

Sore throat can be a sign of a cold. Training then confronts your body with additional stress and weakens your immune system. It would also make sense to do without training here, or at least only to a very limited extent and to train with little intensity.


Ear pain is the first sign of possible ear infection. It occurs suddenly and can be one-sided or two-sided. This is usually triggered by bacteria. If you have a cold, the pathogens can get from the nasopharynx into the middle ear and cause inflammation there. Dizziness, fiber and throbbing in the ear are clear symptoms. A sports break is absolutely necessary here.
