Any body here do ice baths?

I just got into it as a way to treat a couple joint and muscle injuries. But it seems like a good practice overall, even when you are healthy.

Thoughts?
>>
why does it seem like good practice to you?
do you even know what you're doing when you submerge yourself in ice?
>>

10 minute showers at 65 degrees F. All the benefits, none of the cost of acquiring ice.

For whatever reason it really eases the pain and swelling after workouts. its supposed to quickly reduce lactic acid and speed muscle recovery. And it stimulates bloodflow.

IDK if im an expert.

I just fill the tub with cold water and a few bowls of ice. Then I get in and try to submerge to the neck. I'm only able to do 3 or 4 minutes, but I hear 10 is ideal.

Did it on a holiday one time when reaching some milestones, don't know how well it worked but I didn't feel DOMS as badly the next day

> a few bowls of ice
Fuck, i filled it with hose water and 10 (chlorine tub sized) buckets of ice
Generally youre meant to readjust to room temp then go in a spa or warm bath after to get the blood flowing to further help with muscle recover

>>35633585

yeah thanks.

I just jumped in a hot shower after, but I guess I should stand in room temperature for like 5 min first?

Are you retarded? Try living in Canada. The wamth is your friend my friend.
>>
>>35633615
Yeah, thats what athletes and sportpeople suggest, which makes sense so as not to shock your muscles by freezing them and then sending a heat wave to them

Professional athlete here.

It's painful but you get used to them. It seriously helps recovery time.

HGH speeds recovery as well.

Do it anon, be cool,everybody's doin it mang, dont be a pussy

I don't do ice baths, but do contrast showers, 3 mins as hot as possible then 1 min all the way to cold, repeat 3-4 times. It does seem to help my recovery. I've also noticed that the cold doesn't seem so cold anymore.
