The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Effects of Hot Tubs..

    What kind of affects on strength/recovery would a hottub have? Any at all? For some reason I think this is good for recovery, but Im not sure if this is real, or something I just made up in my head because theyre so relaxing haha

    I have a hot tub at home. I'm in it 3-4 x week, but I really don't think it helps any with recovery. It make's the joints feel good for about 1/2 to 1 hour after. What the hell, if it feels good, do it!

    Yea, I dont have anything to back this up but I think it might do something worthwhile if it loosens all of your muscles and lets yourself really relax. I dont think there would be any actual recovery since that is more physiological.

    A hot tub will help recovery. It promotes blood flow, especially to the extremities. Blood flow will help promote recovery. The better choice would be some type of contrats. Either ice tubs and hot tubs or contrats showers. Super hot water for about 3 minutes followed by super cold freeze your balls off water for about 1 minute. Repeat until you're tired of it. Finish with cold unless you're going to bed soon after.

    Ah awsome, so I wasn't just imagining it was good

    I've been doing contrast showers lately, but figured if hot tubbing was good for it aswell, there's just one more excuse to go in
