    NSAIDs and muscle growth

    The science says they inhibit muscle growth but I actually want this if I get to keep the strength. I want weight to power ratio.

    Anyone have experience with this?

    When I was still strong but very fat, I was sore all the time. My muscles weren't sore as much as my feet, hands, joints, etc. I was taking a bunch of stupid inflammation herbs like turmeric, ginger, boswellia, etc. None of it did jack chit for me.

    Ibuprofen, on the other hand, did work. So I started taking that pretty regularly. Probably 8-12 on a regular basis.

    Aside from just being a bad long term plan, the problem for me is that inflammation is part of the adaptation machine that is our body. So even if it's minuscule, to me taking NSAIDS would logically limit strength and muscle gains.

    I don't have those problems anymore since losing over 100 pounds. For anyone who has problems like that, try a ketogenic diet. The anti-inflammatory effects are more pronounced than any handful of ibuprofen and it's not even close.

    It may be possible the turmeric was not absorbing properly as there are challenges with absorption in the intestinal tract.

    You need black pepper at the same time with turmeric. Another "natural" anti inflammatory is fish oil, everyone thinks it's good but what if it too inhibits muscle growth.

    The inhibition will be minimal, and they will inhibit strength gains equally, if not more than hypertrophy.
