I have just tried this myself and it feels great.
I saw this post yesterday and was very curious about it so I did some Google searches. I found it is done mainly to improve circulation and flush toxins like lactic acid.
Are there any weight loss applications for hot/cold (contrast) showers?
Also if anyone has more experience with these, is it really helpful for reducing post workout soreness? Are there any other benefits?
I am going to keep trying these before working up to straight cold showers/baths.
Thanks Cathylee for posting about this.
