Ice Bath/Cold Plunge. What are the benefits?

Here ' s a list of some of the key benefits we ' ve collected from high-impact athletes, yogis, and regular workout people:

  • Reduces inflammation, swelling, and sore muscles.

  • Boost injury recovery.

  • Speeds up metabolism, promote lymphatic drainage.

water can constrict blood vessels and decrease inflammation, which can
give the skin a temporarily more radiant appearance”.

How to start this practice safely at home?

Yes, now you know some benefits of cold plunge. But we want to show you some tips to start from home safely.

It is important to start cold exposure slowly and increase tolerance over time. You may want to start your cold exposure routine with a cold immersion and gradually increase the duration or intensity of the immersion until you feel comfortable.

When starting out, it is essential to focus on slow but steady breathing and limit exposure to the cold to just a few minutes. As you feel more comfortable, you can gradually increase the duration of your cold exposure sessions.

According to Michael Kummer ' s (healthy living and technology enthusiast) research, he takes most of his ice baths when it' s convenient for him. But sometimes he plans them strategically to achieve specific benefits.

Here are some examples of that:

  • Early morning plunge. If I had a bad night and don ’t feel super energetic, I just jump into my cold plunge to get a jolt of energy that lasts several hours.

  • Pre-workout plunge. Sometimes I jump into the cold plunge, followed by a hot shower, to get some blood pumping before an intense workout — especially strength training sessions.

  • Post-workout plunge. If I have sore muscles after a hard workout, I jump into my cold plunge to speed up my recovery as part of my postexercise routine.

  • Afternoon plunge. If I’ m super stressed because of work, the kids, or a combination of both, I jump into the cold plunge, followed by a 30- minute session in my Sunlighten mPulse infrared sauna to relax and downregulate my sympathetic nervous system. Additionally, I leverage random cold plunges on active recovery days.

  • Evening plunge. I’ ve noticed that plunging before bedtime helps me fall asleep quicker and it also improves the quality of my sleep.

                       Michael Kummer.



 It' s also essential to listen to your body ' s signals during cold exposure and stop if you start to feel uncomfortable.
