Funny I have been taking, what do you call it, alternating temperature showers at night as well, so I guess I wouldn't be a good control. But I am, however, still dropping tons of body fat at the moment from too many years at a desk and not paying attention to fitness. I am doing the alternating temps for increased recovery seems to work, maybe its helping on the BF front too combined with the ice cream and really good diet, plus ZMA now too. Plus starting this week I have made greens kale, baby spinach or collards an absolute definite intake. Shrug...
But I know I did heavy squats yesterday and felt dynamite this morning and did 225# bar chain loaded box squats explosively and shrugs tonight and still feel fantastic. Could have done tons more but pulled the plug for fear of overdoing things. Damn it I'm rambling again...
I guess I wouldn't want to cut the ice cream vs extremely cold shower or ice bath due to different functional purposes from what I understand. And I sure would miss that ice cream. mmmm iiiice cream. Oops, I drooled a little. I think the concept is interesting though, and would also be interested in any measured impact.
