Correct me if i'm wrong but my understanding that Ice-Baths were to remove lactate from muscles post workout and reduce inflammation.........? And I don't remember anyone saying that it prevented DOMS when I learnt about cryotherapy............?! And I thought that elevation of cortisol is not always a bad thing, it depends on the extent to which levels rise, but I would like to see the research on this.
Cheers for the info Steven, you are a great help as always. I'm not working out in the mornings at the moment, but it's useful to know for future reference.
