Like everything in life, the best results are got on the extreme tails. Avoid mediocracy. This includes heat & cold exposure!
Our friends in the in Finland are said to have been using the “hot sauna, cold water” technique for centuries & with good reason.
Many swear by the Cold Plunge or Ice Bath to
- Elevate their mood – interesting studies around cold therapy & depression, more to come!)
- Boost overall energy – the ‘lift’ you feel afterwards is something else
- Lower chronic inflammation – muscles feel less sore, joint mobility improves
- Increase Blood flow – helps repair damaged tissues, muscle breakdown from the gym/sport
- Boost your immune system – through shocking it
Combining the Sauna & Cold Plunge is a performance hack. According to the North American Sauna Society, the transition from a hot sauna to cold temperatures has many benefits
- Causes your heart rate to increase
- Constricts your blood vessels and sends a sudden rush of adrenaline and endorphins racing through you.
- Rejuvenates the complexion of your skin
- Your organs get flooded with a rush of fresh oxygenated blood
This results in an amazing feeling! Your mind is put into sudden focus (The Power of Now!) and the clarity of thought you get is immense. There is NOTHING like it.
How long to Sauna/Cold Plunge for?
Keep it simple, do what feels comfortable for YOU.
It’s advised that you spend no more than 2 to 5 minutes in a cold plunge, and another 12 to 15 minutes in a sauna, but this depends on the person.
You don’t have to stay these maximum times to reap the benefits. Read that again.
In fact, if you are just starting your routine, a couple of minutes in the water followed by a short stint in the sauna can be perfect. You want to work up slowly to longer time periods.
Never stay in your cold plunge or sauna longer than the recommended time frames as this can be dangerous to your health.
