We recently stumbled upon this gem of information from the Paleo Solution Podcast with Robb Wolf and Greg Everett. A question came up about taking Cipro and the related side effects the person was experiencing. During their answer, Robb mentions that people taking antibiotics are at a higher risk for soft tissue injury. If you're on an antibiotic or ever find yourself taking one, please let us know so we can best help you modify the workout. Thanks!
"One deal with Cipro and related antibiotics is that you are at extremely high risk for tendon and ligament rupture, particularly tendon rupture. It can destabilize the integrity of the tendon. So if you go on Cipro and related antibiotics, you need to really ramp up your exercise very, very incrementally after you come off of it, and this is for like six or eight weeks afterwards. You can pull the Achilles tendon off of the calcaneus. You can pop your quadricep tendon off of the patella, a host of things like that. So that's one thing that is not on the radar for folks. You need to really ramp up your activity level very slowly and carefully after that." - Robb Wolf
