Do a search and you'll find many reasons to use as little of it as possible. It clearly inhibits healing, might increase the risk of injury such as tendon rupture, tends to increase blood pressure (which goes up in any event during exercise, so further increase can be harmful), and so on. About the only benefit I'm aware of other than reducing pain (which can be done much more safely with moderate doses of Tylenol) is that ibuprofen used daily may reduce the risk of Alzheimer's dementia (which is now felt to have an inflammatory component associated with the amyloid deposition in the brain).
