Pride on the Line Ice Baths - The Science

Perform at your best week in, week out.

Recovery is a critical part of training as it is used to minimise the risk of overtraining and injury, whilst promoting physical and psychological readiness.

For its ability to improve recovery time and reduce the delayed onset of muscle soreness, water immersion therapy has become an essential recovery method amongst elite athletes and sports scientists.

Cold water immersion therapy may assist with:

Temperature

Research suggests that a temperature range of between 8-15° with a mean temperature of 11° may provide optimum recovery benefits.

Immersion Depth

Hydrostatic pressure may be an important factor on recovery. It is suggested that the deeper the athlete is immersed, the higher the potential for improvement.
