Role of NSAIDs in Hanging
NSAIDS (Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs), like Advil, Aspirin, and Celebrex, all suppress the inflammatory response.
If I understand what I’ve been reading, inflammation of connective tissues causes them to heal.
So, what if you take NSAIDS? Do you delay or impair healing? Is this a good thing or a bad thing?
For instance, it is generally advisable to reach “fatigue” while hanging at as light a weight as you can. If NSAIDs impair connective tissue healing, taking a healthy dose of them may help you to fatigue at a lighter weight. Also, by postponing healing, you may be able to get a better, more permanent stretch at any weight.
NSAIDS may also help people whose connective tissues have become tough from over conditioning. They may have an important role in de-conditioning …
This is just me spouting off. I’m not a medical expert by any “stretch.” But, I’m sure there are lots of biological short cuts to achieving good gains if we look for them.
Does anybody have any ideas/experience with this?
BTW: Here’s the website that prompted this idea:
