Being sick sucks. I'm not even that sick but just being a little off your game sucks for men. Because men are babies. They say if it's just a cold (neck and up) and not the flu (neck and down) then you're fine to keep working out. They say a good sweat can be good for it even.

Taking a page from the Dolph Lundgren book of home workouts, I completed:
2) Chin Up
3) Incline Push Up
6) Handstand Push Up
7) Sissy Squat - Stand next to a door frame for balance and let your knees sink forward and down as you lean back then push back up to standing
8) Face Pull - Lift yourself up like a chin up then pull your face to the bar and push back out, kind of like you're curling your body instead of the bar
10) Calf Raises - On a stair, 15 reps with toes forward, out and in
