The ultimate quiz for the ultimate question. Should I workout today?

Some days it’s simple: You just want to workout. Other days, it’s not so easy. When you’re struggling with your decision to hit the gym or not, there are many factors worth weighing. It’s almost always a good idea to get a low-to moderate-intensity workout in. Even if it’s a quickie, but there are some exceptions. Like if you’ve been sick, injured, or are plain old burnt out because you’re training for a half marathon. That is draining what feels like every spare minute of your life.

The Women’s Health team knows the struggle is real. But rest days can be key to fitness success. So to help you from spending too much time deciding and spending more time on yourself, we bring you the ultimate guide to the ultimate question.
