While this thread is here, time to unload all my shower related questions/answer:
R. Lee Ermey says he takes a cold shower every morning just to put a mean streak in his brain.
Jack Dempsey says do a sweat out before a shower. (why???)
Wow, I thought I had more than two facts/questions, but apparently not.
Makes me wonder what tempterature would be required to call it cold? Anything less than 93 degrees?
I get a swim often to finish up my workout, usually 85 degree water.
Sometimes I'll spend sometime in a hot tub, in then jump in my 60~ degree pool, usually I notice some sort of uplifted energy for the next hour or so. I think it has something to doing with having the blood vessels in an open and flowing state, and then jolting them into vasoconstriction. But who knows.
I'm kind of with Emeveas on this one.. now I'll be taking a shower and thinking about this all the time.
You've stolen my peaceful showers.
A warm or hot shower shortly after vigorous exercise could draw too much blood away from core organs. Otherwise you should probably shower after working out.
ringworm is bad, staph is bad, hot showers are good.
maybe i'll never hit my full potential, but i'll be damned if i give up my steaming hot showers with the guys after a work out. besides, games of towel whips and grab ass just aren't as fun in the cold water.
ummm.... wait a minute
ONLY cold water at my gym. my instructor contends it is better for your muscles.
he also contends it is a bitch, by screaming when he jumps into a cold shower.
i dont know if this has anything to do with it but i noticed a mma training method in wich after they train they jump in a can of ice and water and stay in it for like a minute or so
(i seen it on ultimate fighter)
what does that do anyways?
How the **** does anyone jump in a can?
