so the added heat, which raises blood flow and circulation won't help the muscle that was worked out? the russians used to play around with hot/cold showers before and after workouts. wish i had read those studies.

It's fine to have a hot shower after..
whoever told you this is full of it.

The world is full of idiots.
Also - Suncloud, you're referring to "Contrast" Showers, which are a great way to initiate faster CNS recovery post-workout. I've utilized them when on a calorie deficit as well as when doing two-a-days and they help a noticeable amount.

I read something similar to this in the 80's, wherein the cold shower retracts your skin and gives you a very tight appearance; which in that second it would but once you step out of it??? then what? I never agreed w/that notion.

Hot showers are great.
In the words of Costanza "Cold showers are for psychotics"

Wanna make it even better? Throw a 20rep set of db pullovers supersetted in with it. That's how I learned about supersetting...

if some one told you to take cold showers after workouts and you were dumb enough to do it then you deserve to take a cold shower every day haha

Damn, you guys are brutal... He just came in asking a question and didn't state it as a fact. You basically knocked the guy for saying someone told him but then you go ahead and tell him it's no big deal as if being told on the internet by anonymous people is any more certain that someone he met?

Sorry if there was confusion or negative results from it. Just going for a few laughs

Just a general feeling i've been getting lately as I go through these "i have a question" threads. Humor is a great thing but it helps when there's an attempt to answering the question at hand. It wasn't pointed at anyone in particular.

Ivan Drago told me he takes hot showers all the time. Take it for what its worth.

There has been some evidence that heat therapy can actually increase the swelling in the muscle which would take longer to heal but a hot shower after a workout should be fine.

....what else can you do while taking a hot shower?
