Getting sick with a cold after a month of doing P90X
Getting sick with a cold after a month of doing P90X
p90x cold symptoms
11/8/12 1:20 AM
Does anybody experienced this? I have started doing P90X twice and both times after a month doing the program I get cold symptoms. It sucks because I can't keep exercising and I have to wait to feel better to restart the program. Any ideas anybody?

Hello,

1. Are you sure its a cold and not allergies to something you are using in your workouts..maybe the space...or a food you are eating more of during workouts?
Generally cold mucus is yellow allergy stuff is clear to white.

2. when you start p90x do you radically change your diet? If so, you may be experiencing a detox effect as toxins get dumped into your bloodstream...

3. How soon after you stop p90x do you feel better ?

I'm feeling the beginning of a cold myself at day 60. When I start to feel a cold I take Airborne Formula (an effervescent you mix into water like alka seltzer). I swear it helps beat back colds. I won't lie and say I enjoy the flavor though. emoticon

Thanks for the reponses. This time it took me about 2 to 3 weeks to feel better after I stopped P90X. What I thought it was that maybe I over trained and my immune system got weak. Not sure why but I'm a little scare to start exercising again emoticon

That can certainly happen to your body in times of stress, physical or otherwise. Be smart about it, but don't be intimidated. Your body will thank you for the challenge in the long run. Make sure that you don't have some lingering sinus infection too that is often brought on initially by colds. Good luck!
