Do You Prefer Hot or Ice Baths?

Do You Recover with Hot or Cold Baths?

What is better for post-race muscle recovery, warm or cold baths?

Well, the answer depends on who you listen to. Some experts advise ice baths, others recommend hot baths. And then there’s a third group that believes ‘contrast bathing’ – where you keep switching between hot and cold – is the most effective option.

There is truth in each argument, so try all three and see which provides you with the most effective recovery.

What do you think?
