    Cool Hands - More Reps?


    STANFORD Magazine: July/August 2005 > Just Cool It

    I have to give credit to Voodoo for posting this on another board (it's not new). I would never actuallly buy the equipment, but apparently he's been holding frozen Snapple bottles during his workout and is enjoying the extra stamina.

    It sounds ghetto and maybe just plain weird, but I figured as cheap as Snapple is compared to most supps everyone is trying, this might be a fun experiment.

    Well I tried it a little today, between sets of pull-ups. I just put my hands & wrists in a bucket of ice water. I'm working out at home right now, don't know how you'd do this in most public gyms.

    I have to say it was a very different feeling. I can't conclude that it really improved my strenth, but it did feel very neat at first. Possibly just a nice placebo boost. I'll probably try it a couple more times.

    You could hold a frozen water bottle.
