Adn you have to freeze to death to make it work.
i actually take sometimes a cold shower or bath in the morning after waking up.
(not ice, just cold)
And i like it because i got a huge energy rush after it.

But i wondering if a taking a cold bath after training really increase recovery?
i know that lots of athletes are doing it after training for many years but i don't really see how cold water speeds up recovery.
First cold water narrows the blood-vessels so its reduce the amount of blood into the muscle whats slows recovery (i think)
Second its very stressful and skyrocket stress hormones like cortisol?

what do you think?

I think you shouldn't worry about hormones of which you have an absurdly simplistic understanding of. Kinda like ketards and insulins hurr durr omg

Um... No.

There are reliable university experiments on this in which human subjects were monitored with calorimeters and found to burn anything between 650-850 kcal in an hour submerged in cold water.

I have been doing this now for maybe a month. I do some breathing exercises first (search wim Hof breathing to see what I do) then take a cold shower. I had a lot of depression related lethargy and fatigue and the breathing and cold showers has made a huge positive difference. It is great.

interesting. Just wondering, what is your job/typical day/what kind of exercise routine do you adhere to?

My username is probably a misnomer lol. As of right now I am pretty inactive, looking to get back into exercise, but slowly because I have issues with binge eating and exercise (especially lifting) can exacerbate it. I am a fair bit overweight but overall down maybe 100 pounds from my heaviest a few years ago. I work with children at an inner city elementary school with a lot of behavior problems so it is a reasonably stressful and taxing job.

I don't think the cold showers have made any impact on my appetite or weight that I can tell but just feeling better and more energetic has made me feel less worthless and has given me a bit more will power to actually stick to a diet plan.

Every day I do the breathing exercise and hop in the shower and turn the water on. There is about a two second delay between turning it on and it hitting me full force and this is maybe the hardest part (or actually getting into the shower). Once the water hits I take a few deep breaths and just kind of relax into it. I have to kind of amp myself up to do it. Music helps. But it is kind of like doing a hard workout in that at times it sucks, but there is a slight pleasantness about the pain, and a feeling of accomplishment and a mood elevation afterwards. I would recommend it for anyone with energy depleting depression. And unlike exercise, you don't really have to do exert energy to do it, the cold water kind of does the work for you.

We're still waiting for you to provide us any evidence on that.
