    Exclamation Pain-killers Question

    I have been doing calithetics for about 1 1/2 week now. I was lifting but stopped and now I have beefytits (I need help with that too) but thats a different story. I decided to start a program with push-ups, lunges, some dumbells and other simple stuff before I hit the weights again. Kind of like a foundation. Anyway, my legs and chest felt like crap after one day so the next day I took 1000 mg of acetemenephin and lifted again. I have been doing this for the past week. Is this ok or do I have to stop being a wuss and take the pain before my heart stops?

    Is the pain from sore muscles or something else?

    You would be better off using Aleve, or even something with Ibuprofen in it.

    Aleve has Naproxen Sodium in it. This is a great anti-inflamatory that works good for sore joints and muscles. I used to have problems with my right shoulder until I took 2 Aleve. Not a problem since.

    ROTFLMAO. sorry but that was funny.

    I agree with the other guys, Ibuprofen if you can handle it, don't overdo it.

    Yeah, I think the pain is pretty much from soreness and inflammation. Thanks for the advice guys, I was just worried about whether taking pain killers on a regular basis could be dangerous. Hey PB&J, don't laugh at my beefytits anymore, lol.

    Taking painkillers on a regular basis is dangerous for two reasons that i can think of off the top of my head:

    1. You might mask an injury pain, and make it tons worse.

    2. Every heard of stomach ulcers?

    ** Only if you're a beginner and you do not know your body.


    2. Every heard of stomach ulcers?

    ** If taken daily (excessive/chronic use) it could cause stomach problems that might lead to an ulcer.

    I should've been more clear, by regular use i meant daily use. Sorry.
