Do any of you use pain killers during or after traing to help push even further than normal and or to help forget about recovery. I have a freind who just lifts doesnt train fighting etc he uses codeine and other opiates about 3 times a week and he claims it helps him beat personel bests and if hes hurting real bad it helps him recover better. I know opiates are as bad as drugs get my best freind from child hood died from a herion OD. Still i use codeine if im sick my GF use it for migranes and i know loads that use it for things like this. I would use a week opiate like i can get from the chemist and only about once every two weeks to try and beat peronal best and gain a bit from the extra weight if it works like that for me. Do any of you use this method?.
