The use of ibuprofen negatively interferes with sports activity aimed at building strength and muscle.

Di Angelo

Many athletes use anti-inflammatory drugs without criteria with the unhealthy idea of ​​feeling less pain and being able to train more.

This little trial leaves us perplexed for a moment.

Natural bodybuilding: preparation for a competition and recovery. What happens to the athlete?

Two small groups of young and healthy individuals were hired to train in the gym (legs). The first group took 1,2 grams of ibuprofen per day, the other group aspirin.

The group taking aspirin had better results in terms of both strength and mass.

After 8 weeks of training / treatment these are the conclusions:

High doses of ibuprofen attenuate muscle strength and hypertrophic adaptations at 8 weeks of weight training training in young people. Thus, young people who train with weights to maximize muscle growth or strength should avoid excessive intake of anti-inflammatory drugs.
