RE: Ideal Post Workout Routine
from an article ive started to write:
Ice baths have been used in athletics for years, but they have only just caught on in sports like football. They cause â€˜newâ€™ blood to rush into the legs after you get out. The actual method of using ice baths isnâ€™t anything too difficult. Just fill up a bath with cold water and throw in some ice. Bags of actual ice or ice bricks (those gel filled things you stick in the freezer) do the trick. Sit in it for 15-20 minutes after a hard training session. Make sure all the parts of the body that have been taxed during the session are submerged. The ideal temp is between 5 and 10 degrees Celsius. Try and have the ice bath within 2 hours of the session. I donâ€™t eat anything heavy before having an ice bath, or I feel really sick.
