No more Ibuprofen!!!

I will admit fault on this one. I have been guilty to recommending ibuprofen to members to help with muscle soreness after a workout. Well after doing a little research I have found that is a BIG NO NO.

Ibuprofen is an NSAIDs. NSAIDs have been shown to delay and hamper the healing in all the soft tissues, including muscles, ligaments, tendons, and cartilage. Anti-inflammatories can delay healing and delay it significantly, even in muscles with their tremendous blood supply.

Please read this blog I found by Kelly Starrett to find the truth about Ibuprofen and what to do for muscle soreness:
