I don't have to take anything daily, but a couple days a week a couple aspirin. Some times I get in bed and ach so bad, after excessive w/o. I'm 44. It does a body good!
Yeah I try not to ever take them. As of late though I have had to myself a few times a week.I don't have to take anything daily, but a couple days a week a couple aspirin. Some times I get in bed and ach so bad, after excessive w/o. I'm 44. It does a body good!

I could not copy a link for this article. There is not a lot more of it if u want I'll post the rest.
So I take it you use it as a pre workout? That's a great article man. Thank uI could not copy a link for this article. There is not a lot more of it if u want I'll post the rest.
Aspirin as a Pre-Workout Supplement
First, it can improve the body’s blood flow. Even as little as 30mg prior to training can “thin the blood “enough where the muscles are more exposed to greater amounts of nutrient and oxygen carrying blood. This can speed up recovery between sets and reps. Aspirin does not “improve circulation.” It reduces the ability of the platelets to attach to things and forming clots. In layman’s terms, it “thins the blood.” Although that’s a misnomer since the viscosity of the blood is not affected by aspirin, but its ability to clot is reduced. Good blood circulation is crucial for the overall health of the body since blood is responsible for bringing oxygen and essential nutrients and to the entire body. That’s why; the body cannot by any means function properly if the blood circulation is poor. Thinning the blood by taking a small dose of Aspirin, will make the heart’s blood pumping mission easier.
Second, waste products that result from heavy training can be flushed away from the muscles with greater speed and efficiency. Aspirin can reduce the swelling (edema) as a result of hard training. Tissue damage caused by swelling is the culprit from prolonged healing times. Really recovery doesn’t happen until the swelling has gone down. Then your body starts to recover.
Third, Aspirin can reduce the pain associated the above tissue damage and swelling. People say that using aspirin can make a difference between an okay workout a really great workout. Using aspirin and some other recovery methods can lead to greater recovery which leads to faster progression.
Research has shown the low doses of aspirin work just as well as larger doses. This means you would want to find the lowest possible aspirin bodybuilding dose that does the job.
Crushing the aspirin and mixing it with milk before a workout helps protect your stomach lining and improves absorption. Nursing student handbook: Giveaspirin with food, milk, antacid, or large glass of water to reduce adverse GI reactions. Do not crush, chew, break, or open an enteric-coated or extended-release pill. Swallow the pill whole. The enteric-coated pill has a special coating to protect your stomach.
Your body can develop a tolerance to aspirin. So if you do use it, only do it during your hardest workouts. Not something you’d take every day with every workout.
What scientific studies say:
The effects of NSAIDs on the muscular system differs for young individuals vs. old individuals, acute vs. chronic use, and for timing of use (pre vs. post exercise). NSAIDs are often used to help people who are sore after exercise. Researchers have looked at this use of NSAIDs and have determined that NSAID “use for brief periods of time is beneficial to short term recovery of muscle function.” NSAIDs do this by helping to manage inflammation. A short term use of NSAIDs seems to work well despite the impact on muscle repair, but long term use can lead to gastrointestinal complications, renal failure, liver failure, and heart failure. NSAIDs are best used for short term relief of soreness for muscles. NSAIDS are commonly linked to cardiovascular risk after prolonged use.
Young vs. Old
Recent studies have revealed that older adults who consume NSAIDs have greater muscle strength gain and hypertrophy from resistance training compared to older adults who do not consume NSAIDs. These findings were contrary to the researchers initial beliefs on the effects of NSAIDs on the muscular system adaptations to resistance training. The mechanisms are, at least, partially responsible for the\ initial findings are, 1) NSAIDs reduced muscle loss by reducing the amount of IL-6 and MuRF-1, which promote muscle loss, 2) NSAIDs induced PGF2a receptor upregulation, which causes increased skeletal muscle sensitivity to PGF2a resulting in stimulation of protein synthesis.
On the contrary, NSAIDs also suppressed PGF2a, which reduces protein synthesis stimulation. Although overall, these mechanisms inhibited protein breakdown more than they inhibited protein synthesis, which resulted in an increased net muscle protein balance.
Timing of Use
Many athletes take NSAIDs before physical activity in order to prevent the inflammation and/or pain that may occur. Some clinical evidence involving surgical trials supports these claims, finding that using NSAIDS prior to an inflammatory event could reduce inflammatory response, pain, and recovery time. In exercise induced muscle damage, rather than surgically induced, studies have shown that pre-exercise administration of NSAIDs could reduce the amounts of creatine kinase circulating after exercise as compared to a placebo group. This difference in creatine kinase levels may illustrate that less muscle damage occurred in the treatment group.

Well I'm off an on with the baby aspirin a day thing, but I'm not getting any younger. I'll post the rest I just did not want to take up 2 much space.
Look up Kratom. Never tried it but a lot of bbers are talking about it. There are a cpl of videos on youtube by enhancedathlete - Cane is reviewing, and Tony Huge is discussing it....seems like an effective OTC drug, less harmful than NSAIDS and more effective than aspirin....just search on youtube - "tony huge on kratom" - first 3 videos are pretty interesting....
I have a very addictive personality. So I stay away from anything like that. I know it may lead to bad news.If you're a person that has dependency issues; Kratom is a bad idea. There have been numerous threads about guys getting on it, had to keep upping the dosage until they were using huge amounts all the time. Then they decided to stop and suffer through withdraws.
Thanks God that didn't happen to me when I used it.
