So Ive taken two these past few days cause some of the guys on the team recommended it for soreness and stuf like that. But how long are you supposed to be in thers for exactly? And what exactlymdoes it do?
Cold increases blood flow and brings down swelling. I would just ice down the troublesome area rather than sit in ice water though. When I'm sore all over I prefer stretching and/or a good massage to beak up the lactic acid and stimulate blood flow.
It draws out all the Lactic acid out the muscles :) footballers and rugby player all do it. Its like a fluchng prossess for unwanted acid
im not so sure but i know one of my coach's made us do it for soccer if our legs were super hurting =)
stay in until your relaxed and it makes you cold. lol
