Does Ibuprofen Help or Hurt During Exercise?

I recently read this post in the NY Times while researching information on the “preventative use” of NSAIDs. Many of the athletes I train with pop 2-3 pain killers prior to a workout to prevent the onset of pain or possible inflammmation due to their sport’s activity. This article is a great summation of when NSAIDs are appropriate and when they are not…and why. Please take a moment to read, then practice your new knowledge. Train smart.
