WEEKLY RECOVERY PROTOCOL

It's time to get chilly!

Here are two ways to introduce cold water therapy into your recovery methods.

Cold water immersion: This is exactly what it says and it’s what is being done by athletes when you see them up to their neck in ice baths. Fill your bath tub with cold water and add a bag or two of ice. Start small and aim for 1-3 minutes with the goal of building to 15 minutes.

Contrast therapy: Stand in the shower and alternate between 30-60 seconds of warm/hot water and 30-60 seconds of cold water. Aim for 5-15 sets
