Just as Exercise and Heat Exposure place a stress on the body that result in a host of beneficial adaptation – cold exposure is another way to ‘hack’ your body to optimize your health.
There is no right or wrong way of doing it.
But if you’re looking to get the most ‘bang for your buck’ cold baths seem to be #1, even over cryotherapy units and cold showers, as they are most effective in decreasing the body’s core temperature.

Struggle to get going in the morning? Try a cold shower or bath!
Are you crazy enough to give this a shot?
