Dear Chuck & Cindy,

Thank you for helping me continue to strive for my dream!  The Cold and Hot True Zone Trainer Swim Spa that you so kindly personally delivered to me allows me to train at home every day, year round and that’s just what I’m doing.

I keep the swim zone 85 degrees and the spa zone 102 and that’s perfect for me.  Having this at home has given me the freedom to succeed in my dream of competing in the 2016 Paralympics.

I’m very grateful that you manufacture such an amazing product and that you took so much time to instruct me on the proper use and care, it’s so easy!

Please check out the chapter Tracy Libby wrote about me in the new book, Reporting For Duty, True Stories of Wounded Veterans and Their Service Dogs.  It’s even got a few pictures of me and my guide dog and companion George.
Thanks again for everything!  I hope to see you again very soon.

If you haven’t heard or just plain curious about Ice bath therapy, then you’re in the right place. World class athletes have adopted this practice, so begs the question, why shouldn’t you? Maybe you’ve tried it once or twice, and you didn’t see any changes at all. Well, are you sure you did it right? Ice bath recovery, when done properly and regularly, will speed up the recovery process of your body as well as improving your overall athletic performance. Ice bath therapy is ideally done in hydrotherapy pools for the best results.

Why should I take a bath with ice? It’s freezing!

Yes, it is chilling. Although most of us don’t like a cold shower, an ice bath right after an intense running session can actually do wonders for your body. It’s a fact that right after an intense activity, like a long run or a set of short sprints, your muscles experience microtrauma. These are small tears in the muscle fibers, which are perfectly normal for runners. You’re probably feeling some of it when your muscles hurt after an exhausting run, but you won’t feel every tear since they are, as the name implies, micro.

Because of the very low temperature, ice bath also becomes a great treatment for muscle soreness, strain, and inflammation. It also prevents the breakdown of muscle tissues. The cold water will stimulate muscle cells to start repairing the muscle tears.

As you immerse yourself in the ice bath, you’ll get relief from your sore muscles, let’s say your calves. The good thing about the ice bath is that your other leg muscles are also being treated in the process, like your hamstring, gluteus, and quadriceps. Thus, it gives your body optimal conditions for recovery.

How can I do it at home? I don’t have a hydrotherapy pool

You don’t have to be an owner of a five thousand dollar hydrotherapy pool for you to enjoy ice bath therapy. In fact, you’ll just need a bath tub, water, and a lot of ice packs. Here are the steps that you can take to conduct ice bath therapy at home:

Prepare a lot of ice cubes or packs
Remember that your target temperature for an ice bath is from 12° to 15° Celsius. You can make your own if you have a decent freezer, or you can buy some at the nearest convenience store.
Fill the tub with cold water before you run
Put enough water to fill up to your waists so that the whole lower body can benefit from the therapy.
Right after your run, add ice
If you have a thermometer, you should measure how cold the tub is before going in.
Slowly step in the tub and prepare for the extremely cold water
Things to remember

Don’t stay too long in the tub
Ten minutes should be more than enough time to stay in the tub. Stay for more than twenty and you’ll risk suffering from cold-induced muscle damage.
Your first few sessions will be the hardest
It would be a great idea if you would have something to keep you warm by your side, perhaps a cup of hot chocolate or tea. You might also want to find something to do while under ice bath therapy. You could bring a running book or a magazine with you.
Take a warm bath or shower around 30 minutes to an hour later
Muscles, along with the tissues, have a tendency to become stiff and tense in extreme cold.
There are times when you might want to jump out of the tub because you can’t handle the cold
I would suggest that you try your best to handle it. Keep yourself motivated by keeping in mind that this therapy will help your muscles recover, thus, possibly allowing you to have a better performance in your next run.
Extremely cold ice baths, colder than the advised temperature, could result to fainting
It’s always best to check the temperature from time to time. It’s also better if you let someone know that you’re in the tub with ice. Do this for safety reasons.
Now, you’re quite ready to take an ice bath. The therapy will surely help you reach your athletic goals, whatever they may be. Famous athletes will tell you that ice bath therapy works great. They believe that ice bath therapy gives them speedy recovery, and at the same time, helps in preventing injuries.

So what are you waiting for?

If you have a competition on schedule, you might want to consider taking ice baths to make sure you’re 100% ready for the big day. Quickly repair that muscle damage through regular ice baths after intense running.

Confessions of a Crossfit Coach

April 13, 2010

Contrast Showers/Cryotherapy

Studies on cryotherapy and contrast therapy (using alternating hot and cold) once again go back to the Eastern Bloc countries; there's some crazy interesting studies and modalities of use in Supertraining by Siff and Verkhoshansky and Science of Sports Training by Kurz. Without actually undertaking the insane training of a Bulgarian Oly lifter, a weekend warrior athlete can still reap the benefits from this.

Cryotherapy, aka cold therapy, utilizes the anti-inflammatory action of cold application, coupled with vasoconstriction. In the PWO state, our muscles and tissues are highly inflamed secondary to microtrauma and acidosis. Cryotherapy reduces the inflammation, which while essential, also causes secondary cell hypoxia, leading to increased cellular death---a secondary theory in DOMS. The vasoconstriction is hypothesized to cause a "flushing" action, reducing the amount of metabolic waste and H+ ions (acid). Also of note, a "restoration" of CNS (central nervous system) fatigue is purported to occur, but this is really, really hard to quantify. But who am I to argue with a Soviet exercise physiologist? Plunging oneself into an ice bath, like the way-too happy NFL football players above, is one method of doing this.

Now, not everyone, not even your favorite Crossfit coach (not the short fat guy using big words, the tall skinny guy using big words), has access to a ice bath post-work out. Enter contrast showers:

Contrast showers are a much more accessible (and humane!) way to incorporate cryotherapy; also, in my opinion, it doesn't exacerbate the cortisol spike that ice baths can potentially do.

Contrast Showers, simplified, is the alternating of cold and hot for varying lengths of time. The theory behind alternating cycles is a vasoconstriction-vasodilation action---much like the "flushing" action of cryotherapy, enhanced with the dilation of heat. Think of it like a whole body treatment of a hot, then cold, compress for a soft tissue injury at hour 72. There's a ton of different regimes outlined in Kurz' book, but I prefer a 30s cold, 60s hot x 5 cycles. Depending on when I train makes the difference of what temp I end on....if I train at night (rarely), I end with hot. Any other time, cold; this is only for the single reason that cold will stimulate the sympathetic nervous system (to a degree), so I'd rather not do that before I try and sleep. In the afternoon it's a helluva good way to re-vibe after a killer WOD.

Post your thoughts, questions, and other modalities to comments.



Healthy Swimming/Recreational Water
Health Benefits of Water-based Exercise

Swimming is the fourth most popular sports activity in the United States and a good way to get regular aerobic physical activity 1. Just two and a half hours per week of aerobic physical activity, such as swimming, bicycling, or running can decrease the risk of chronic illnesses 2, 3. This can also lead to improved health for people with diabetes and heart disease 2. Swimmers have about half the risk of death compared with inactive people 3. People report enjoying water-based exercise more than exercising on land 4. They can also exercise longer in water than on land without increased effort or joint or muscle pain 5, 6.

Water-based Exercise and Chronic Illness

Water-based exercise can help people with chronic diseases. For people with arthritis, it improves use of affected joints without worsening symptoms 7. People with rheumatoid arthritis have more health improvements after participating in hydrotherapy than with other activities 8. Water-based exercise also improves the use of affected joints and decreases pain from osteoarthritis 9.

Water-based Exercise and Mental Health

Water-based exercise improves mental health. Swimming can improve mood in both men and women 10. For people with fibromyalgia, it can decrease anxiety and exercise therapy in warm water can decrease depression and improve mood 11, 12. Water-based exercise can improve the health of mothers and their unborn children and has a positive effect on the mothers’ mental health 13. Parents of children with developmental disabilities find that recreational activities, such as swimming, improve family connections 14.

Water-based Exercise and Older Adults

Water-based exercise can benefit older adults by improving the quality of life and decreasing disability 15. It also improves or maintains the bone health of post-menopausal women 16.

A Good Choice

Exercising in water offers many physical and mental health benefits and is a good choice for people who want to be more active. When in the water, remember to protect yourself and others from illness and injury by practicing healthy and safe swimming behaviors.
