Doe over-exercising lead to frequent colds?
Q: I have been exercising since the past 10 years. I started weight training only from the last 2 years. I read it in some article that over training can cause the body to lose it's capacity to fight against cold. Since the last 2 years I am getting cold very regularly; I have been given allergic drugs along with antibiotics. After taking the drugs the cold disappears for around 1-2 months. What should I do, please advise.
A:It is not true that over exercise will lead to frequent colds. It is a myth.
