    Arrow Advil Bengay Questions?

    I just have a few questions about using pain relievers such as advil and bengay, If anyone can help me with the answers I thank you..

    1. If you take advil after a workout involving waight lifting, does it lesson or reduce the effects of the regrowth process for muscles? Making it a bad idea to take advil afterwords as the original goal is to build muscle..

    2. If you take advil before working out with weights does it lesson/reduce the the effects of muscle regrowth you seek in doing your workout

    The same questions I have about bengay, using it after or before a workout with weight lifting, does it reduce the muscle regrowth you seek in doing the workouts

    Thank you

    I'm no doctor, but I don't think it has any adverse effects on muscle growth. I don't know the exact number, but I know back in the day Tom Prince used to take A TON of advil. In the longer run, it hurt him physically, but not with the muscle growth process (obviously, the guy is a freak). I would just take them if you have to, but use them sparingly.

    I dont know how it will affect muscle growth but....

    the use of aspirin or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDS) can cause you to develop iron deficiency anemia.

    This is what happened to me, lowing my immune system, causing me to develop sinus/throat infections every 3 to six weeks. This is very counter productive, I lost 10 pounds of the course of the infections.
