First Ice Bath
That was a fucking religious experience. Also it jump started weightloss. I had been holding at 225 for months on loose SCD. the next morning 219 and it stayed there for a week. I only have a shower so an Ice bath is not part of my regular routine. I was staying with somebody with a tub and tried it out. I've found online a horse trough for 80 bucks that should fit my 6' frame. I'm debating this or a kiddy pool.
You kind of stop feeling the ice after a few minutes. Then when you get out oh my god the 68 degree air felt so warm.
Definitely do this

Ive had a few ice baths now but started with cold showers. The first cold shower i nearly fainted but battled through! By the third cold shower i was fine...so i went onto ice baths... i filled the bath and put 2.5kg bag of ice in... i wasn't too bad probably due to the cold showers conditioning me. I stayed in fro 10mins, fully submerged, when i got out, Jesus... shivering and numb all over, prickly heat type syndrome and couldn't warm up for about 30mins. Again, after the first one i conditioned very quickly...
Last night I had another ice bath but this time with 5kg ice... again this really got me shivering, numb, prickling!!! I got a really good nights sleep though!
I will keep doing it... do you think 10mins and 2.5 or 5kg is enough to see any effects? I do cold shower most mornings, i actually prefer this now... strange i know!
