    I haven't lifted in 5-6 months and i just started a job at a pottery warehouse unloading heavy ass pottery and cast iron shit from trucks. The morning after my first day I was sore as hell so i took a hot/cold contrast shower and i felt fucking amazing afterwards. The soreness was still there that day but i felt so good i started doing it everytime i shower now. I never really did it right before because i was too much of a puss for the cold water :o but it's so worth it. I'm addicted now.

    I usually do it at the end of my showers... (Just took one btw :cool: ) Just alternate between hot water, probably a little hotter than you would normally use to shower, and cold water every 1-3 minutes. At first it'll suck but you get used to it after a while and you won't mind it. I've also read that you should always end the shower on cold. It increases blood flow and chit...makes you feel clean and tingly after a shower :naughty:.

    hot / cold cycling supposedly flushed the muscles out really well. I saw something about it being done to pro athletes, so now I do hot tub / cold pool cycles whenever I go snowboarding. It feels great.

    Yea, I started doing this recently as well. The first cold cycle is a killer but it gets easier. And it is well worth it because it makes you feel so good.

    i don't cycle, but I have notcied I feel kind of good if I end the shower with some cool water. Kind of cools my body down from all the hot water.

    I can't bring myself to do that. It's too fucking cold in my house. Before my shower ends I turn it as hot as I can stand it and heat up before I turn it off. Then I open the shower curtain as little as possible to grab my towel, so I don't let any heat out of the shower. :noes: I'll try this sometime tho :hs:. I love my hot showers tho.
