Benefits of Cold Showers

From: Ian Canaway

I don’t know about you, but I really don’t like cold showers! Why? Because they are cold! However, believe it or not, there are some real benefits of cold showers (apart from helping cure hangovers).

If you follow sports closely you probably know that many serious athletes take cold showers or ice baths after training, primarily to aid recovery following a hard training session.

So how does a cold shower or ice bath aid recovery?

Well it has been shown that cold showers bring blood to your capillaries increasing circulation throughout your body and they also helps remove toxins (e.g. lactic acid) from your muscles increasing recover time.

So are you going to start taking cold showers after training?
