1 – Use Prophylaxis
No, I do not suggest that you wear condoms on all fingers, even if you think that this is not a bad idea.
I suggest you keep some of the antiviral drug Tamiflu ready and take it off the plane before taking off, which is pretty much a flying test tube even in the non-cold and grippy season, providing the perfect humidity and temperature has to be used for spawning and washing Incubate all types of microbial life.
Tamiflu is a prescription product, and prophylactic ingestion is not an approved use. Therefore, you need to rely on your document to get a prescription. Crack an hour before you even get to the airport (or convention, mass sports event, etc.). There are no studies that have examined the effectiveness in this type of situation, but it makes sense that it would work.
1; When they go down, they become tall
While each barbell, dumbbell, rope fights TRT strap, bench and machine teem with bacteria, their germ counts are pale compared to what they do on the doorknob in the gym would find. While only a few death sleeper perform the combat ropes, each touches the handle or the door frame immediately above.
In addition, the equipment is at least (presumably) wiped out by dull, invisible workers at night, not the door. The door handle or frame has probably not been polished since leaving the door handle factory in Hoboken, New Jersey.
But there's a ridiculously easy way to not touch most of these door germs – just on top of the frame and on the door Push the door open with your triceps and lats in place of your triceps and chest. The only other people who have brought the door so far up are NBA players, and they're all busy playing basketball during the cold and flu season.
Do this wherever you go, and I bet you avoid a whole lot of disease.
3 – Play Doctor
The CDC says antibacterial gels do not work so well. Using an alcohol that is 60 to 95% alcohol contaminates the lipid cell membranes and protein walls of most bacteria, but there are no guarantees.
Do not make alcohol-based disinfectants because they secrete. It does not work well with all germs and, paradoxically, could cause other germs to grow undisputed.
The answer, however, as you have heard, but chronically ignored, is to heroically wash your hands, especially after you exercise. And I'm not talking about one of those handwashes where you pee and then somehow run your fingertips through the water and wipe off the moisture because you do not want the other guy in the bathroom to take you for an animal
Scrub them with soap. Edit each finger individually. Also clean the backs of your hands. Take 20 seconds. Imagine you are an obstetrician who has come back in time to free himself. If you do not scrub properly, your child will contract a dreadful infection and die, creating a temporal paradox that will prevent you from exercising your chest on Monday.
If your only option is a hand sanitizer, use plenty and keep rubbing it over your hands until it is completely dissipated.
4 – These apples are not healthy
Do not place your phone on a public surface. I do not care if you have a cool case of Captain America to show off. Do not put it on a bench, a doormat, a table, or a counter that you can not swear it drowned in Lysol seconds before you got there.
And despite what I wrote above about the relative ineffectiveness of antibacterial gels, clean the phone – front and back – with a Lysol disinfectant wipe. Do it at least once a day. They remove most pathogens and remove skin cells, mucus and various proteins that serve as a substrate for the various small animals.
5 – The pen is more powerful than the sword, especially when coated with Norovirus
If you ever want to get sick, say you do not want to go with the bat of your sister-in-law Mitzvah on Wild Card Saturday Take her to a doctor's office and use her bacterial-coated pen to sign up to the small plastic flower at the end that psychologically obscures her deadliness.
I swear I fell victim last year. I registered in the doctor's office and got sick within 48 hours. This is exactly the average incubation period for the flu. I arm myself now with my own pen, before I go somewhere where I have to sign something. It's one of those that have a gnome on the other end, so I can use it on touchscreens as well.
It may sound a bit too anal, but compared to the flu, it's the light feel of Wusiness. You may feel so detailed to protect your health.
6 – Breathe Like Bikram
Whenever you're on your way to the occupied rack and someone is about to cough or sneeze, you start to run in your direction, go into yogi mode and exhale slowly until the bacterial incubator is 6 to 10 feet behind you.
Then turn around and light it. If you're in a Planet Fitness gym and set someone on fire, it's considered a bit awkward-just breathe.
Take this (fast) to avoid the cold or flu
Do not let the disease hinder your progress
