After Finishing a workout, Do you prefer a cold or hot shower? Some buds and i have been arguing whats more 'soothing' after a hardass workout

in my opinion....cold showers relax your muscles more..

Some ppl do something called an ice bath?...supposedly it helps with DOM (Delayed onset muscle soreness)...

I usually take cold showers if it's during the summer...but right now its cold as f* no cold shower for me.

cold... cuz cold showers can help your muscles development

also cuz supposedly taking really hot showers after a work out MAY lead to a heart attack

Never thought of which is better. When I workout, I sweat like crazy. So taking showers is more on the hygiene side, so I choose a hot shower to feel a lot cleaner. I always heard jump in a pool after a workout or sport game, so I guess cold.
