    Unless the cold comes with that flu-style full body weakness I tend to just get on with it. No scientific understanding behind it but I find the 'clear out' of a decent session (and some cardio) helps me.

    Colds are fine. If you genuinely feel ill then that's something else but a cold is OK IMHO.
     
    I often find I crack out some blinders when I've got a cold, I may suffer on the higher intensity stuff, but basic strength is normally fine and due to the cold I find I give myself a more conscious kick up the arse to lift well.

    I agree with this

    As DV says cold crack on.. flu then don't. Inbetween grey area.
     
    Personally training dosn't seem to effect my recovery from a cold and a cold dosn't effect my performance.

    only thing i will say is think about the other gym users and take precautions to try and avoid spreading it around
