In this first episode of Relax and Conquer Radio Ruth and Brad explore the world of cold therapy. We've all seen the athlete jump into a tub of ice water after training or performing to enhance recovery, and most recently the trend of Whole Body Cryotherapy has become a hot topic. Whole Body Cryotherapy is the strategy of standing in a chamber that exposes the body to subzero temperatures sometimes as low as -200 degrees Fahrenheit for 2-4 minutes. But, the question remains.... Do these cold therapies provide the benefits we have been promised? Like most theories in fitness, nutrition, and performance the research is very unclear. The claims of reducing inflammation, accelerating muscular recovery, enhancing fat loss are not solidified in good science.
In Episode 1 Ruth and Brad explore the research that is out there, and share real life experiences as athletes and coaches. Everything from Ruth going blind for an hour after an ice bath done following an event at the Crossfit games, to Brad experiencing positive benefits of controlled ice tubs at the US Olympic Training Facilities. The reality is some people love cold exposure and swear by it, while others despise it! Either way there are some commonalities of benefits discovered in the research and some claims that continue to be falsified by the research.
