    somebody posted a study a while back that said after training it was beneficial to immerse yourself in cold water as it improved recovery rates. i've never tried it myself; i'll stick to creatine/whey/maltodextrin

    I don't hear much about it anymore, but in high school they always told us if we took a cold shower right after practice, we wouldn't be as sore.

    I believe it was Men's Health, or a mag such as, that did a report on the benefits of cold showers. It also went into ddetail concerning the cons of taking hot showers. I love hot showers, however they tend to strip the body of its natural oils and causes dryness. Cold showers after training makes sense to me. Ice is immediately used for inuries, so I would think the cold water would assist the muscles and tendons in recovery.
