    Training in the shower


    I don't know if anyone else has heard of this but it's when you take a shower in just regular warm water for the majority of your shower, this is supposed to open the pores in your skin, then for the last minute before you get out of the shower turn it on cold and it's supposed to make your heart beat faster almsot like you've been running a marathon- i've tried it a couple times but havn't gotten past 30 seconds
    has anyone else heard of this method?

    You do this after a sauna. It is great for circulation and improves recovery.

    I do something similar... cause it helps with circulation and recovery. (At least for me) Being allergic to painkiller this is big if i pull / strain something

    Hot shower for 15 min, i mean HOT (again for me) to loosen the muscle, then colder for 1 min, then hot for 1 min, then cold again, etc until i feel better. this also helps me relax.
