Influence of Non-steroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs (NSAID) on Muscle Regeneration
The purpose of this study is to determine the influence of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) on muscle regeneration.
The investigators' hypothesis is that ingestion of NSAID will delay or impair muscle regeneration.

Effect of NSAID ingestion on muscle regeneration
Placebo Comparator: Placebo
The model employed to induce muscle damage is electrical stimulation. Muscle biopsies will be examined to follow the response of satellite cells and muscle regeneration. Study participants will be randomly assigned to a placebo or NSAID group in a double-blinded manner.
