Ice is Good

IMG_5478Post workout cool down.

After a hard workout our bodies need some tender loving care. The beating our bodies take day after day must be mitigated to prevent injuries. Proper warm up and an adequate cool down are both mandatory for any serious athlete.

In our freezer we have dixie cups filled with water. Use them after a workout to calm the inflammatory process and help you body recover. 5 minutes of a dixie ice massage is equal to about 20 minutes of a standard ice pack. Please remember that if you use a cup replace it with a new one.
