Aspirin can reduce inflammation so that's likely the response they mention. If your goal is to build muscle and strength, then stay away from Aspirin, etc, as it will likely have a negative impact on your long term success. You need the inflammation so that your body can adapt to it by getting stronger. If you're trying to get a couple more reps to pass a PT test, then taking Aspirin before might help.

If recovery is your goal, then just working out less will do that. That's not very productive, is it? What your real goal is, is to have a positive adaptation from your training. Rushing the recovery by reducing inflammation will reduce the response you're looking for.

Edit: What's the book you're getting this from?

I had a long post written with links and references and then I lost it as I was submitting it. The short version is that Fred Hatfield is a very smart man and one of my heroes but there have been advances since he wrote that book in 2004. Aspirin may be beneficial for old people as it may relieve pain during the workout and they may work harder giving better results overall. That doesn't seem to work for younger people.

No, I mean elderly and young adults.

Sorry, I haven't read the book but I'm familiar with the writer. He's a very smart man.

I don't think that taking aspirin prior to a workout has any benefit at all. A single dose of aspirin has little or no anti-inflammatory effect. You have to take it in fairly large doses consistently over a period of weeks (1-3) to get an anti-inflammatory effect. However, even small doses of aspirin decreases platelet function, and may slight increase the chance of bleeding with minor injuries.

I wouldn't advise using it for this purpose.

Aspirin makes platelets LESS "sticky".

Mohamed, aspirin isn't really relevant to your needs.
