    Effects of taking Tylenol and Advil right after working out.

    I know some of my buddies do this after a hard workout, and mabey some of you do so you do not get as sore the next day (or think it will help). Here is a study done to show the effects of taking such drugs after working out.

    "These results suggest that over-the-counter doses of both ibuprofen and acetaminophen suppress the protein synthesis response in skeletal muscle following eccentric resistance exercise. Thus, these two analgesics may work through a common mechanism to influence protein metabolism in skeletal muscle."

    I guess I can see thier point of view, although I don't use aspirin or ibuprofen after my workouts...
