    No thanks. I have done ice baths a couple of times for pain relief but that's what it's good for. This doesn't promote recovery imo.
    Rest in Peace Robot Lord. First round of Natty Boh is on me when I make it up there with you brother.

    That's why I started it. I lift before work and would sweat through my shirt for two hours after every gym day.
    It didn't do the trick though. We should make a thread just for help with that sh*t

    I still feel like there is some recovery benefits from this. Not so much the cold shower but ice baths. It seemed to help me when I did them years ago after strongman workouts/competitions.


    As far as to the cold showers, I still do that. I take my normal hot shower then gradually turn the hot off and sit under the cold shower for about 5 min. I honestly could't say that it helps or not because I have done this for years. I did start doing it to help with recovery but now its kinda like Ecs said, I just dont want to sweat when I get out lol/
    Don't listen to me. I make things up as I go.

    Same here. I train then shower then go to work. My shirt is usually soaked with sweat when I get in the car to drive to work. So annoying. My balls are only sweat free for like 30 seconds a day.

    It supposed to also help you sleep better if you take a cold shower right before bed. And ive been reading that it helps produce more brown fat to help reduce white fat.

    It reduces inflammation. So for bb it can reduce your gains. Doesn't help recovery

    I use a handful of baby powder on the crotch after every shower and never deal with swamp sack anymore.
    Too bad deodorant doesn't work that well.

    There is a lot of chatter about the conversion of fat cells, but I'm guessing it would need to be much colder than tap water.

    I do read on my deck in shorts and no shirt in the winter for 30 minutes a night.
    One of those things I started doing to push myself and kept doing.

    I'm not sure how much it does for my love handles, but if I want them gone I have to drop calories.
    No way around it.
