If you have been taking or consider taking anti-inflammatory medicine to climb hard, check out this video and reasons why not to!

You actually stopped those satellite cells for up to eight days after you’ve taken that anti-inflammatory okay so you’re working on your project you’re getting closer you’re trying it again and again you’re not quite there and you’re starting to have a little bit of pain so you decide that you want to take aspirin and naproxen ibuprofen any of those things to

Get you that final little edge so you can ignore the pain and finish that climb what you’re going to most likely do is open yourself up to an injury so when you start to ignore the signals that your body is telling you ignore those pain signals you’re opening yourself up to an overuse injury or even like an immediate injury where you can actually tear or damage

Your tissue so why is that so these signals that your body sends to your brain of pain are there for a reason it’s saying that you’ve put damage or you’re doing too much use and too much strain on that connective tissue by ignoring that you’re ignoring the basic instincts of your body to try and stop what you’re doing that’s when you’re gonna get injured the

Second thing it can lead to is overuse so if you keep climbing before those signals get to your brain to tell you to stop you’re gonna have more degeneration and you’re not going to be able to recover as quickly so when i say not recover as quickly that is 100% accurate you do not recover as quickly when you take anti-inflammatories when you’re training because

You’re reducing your inflammatory process which is a part of healing so when we train really hard we get these satellite cells that will move to that damaged tissue that’s why they’re called satellite cells they can move around so when you train like your bicep or your flexors you have satellite cells that move into that area to help repair the damage to make it

Stronger when you take these anti-inflammatories you actually stop those satellite cells for up to eight days after you’ve taken that anti-inflammatory so it can have a profound effect on your ability to heal so you’ve done a hard training session and you feel really sore that’s a good thing okay that’s sometimes just natural muscle soreness that inflammation is

Part of our body’s ability to heal so if we take an anti-inflammatory then just to shut that down we’re not going to heal as strongly and we won’t come back feeling as good as we should be if we just let our body work naturally so please i recommend do not take those of course if you’re taking aspirins or anything else because you’re on a regiment or it’s been

Prescribed by your doctor then that’s of course your normal and you know what you shouldn’t shouldn’t be doing but otherwise don’t try and take aspirin ibuprofen naproxen to finish your climb climb smart climbs safe that way you can keep climbing and avoid having injuries thank you all for listening i hope you found this helpful instead of trying to take a quick

And anti-inflammatory to finish your project wait give yourself like six seven eight minutes and try that project again so waiting that full long period of time is going to allow your body to maximize its energy return to that area if you still can’t do it with that long of a break or you’re getting like worse it’s saying that you’re done that’s your time to stop

But that’s six or seven minutes sometimes that’s what you need because sometimes you’re just going going going you want to get it done you’re not actually waiting so set that timer and be specific with it and no one you can go again and try it then rather than just going to the pill bottle
