Abstract Exercise training during evening may disturb sleep patterns and hinder recovery process. The present study aimed to examine the effect of whole body cryotherapy (WBC) exposure after training in the evening on sleep quality and night heart rate variability (HRV). A total of 22 physically active men were randomized to undergo either WBC (3-min at −40°C, wind speed of 2.3 m s−1) or passive recovery (control) following an evening training consisting of 25 min of continuous running at 65… Expand
Partial-body cryostimulation after training improves sleep quality in professional soccer players
TLDR
Partial-body cryostimulation seems to induce a positive impact on sleep quality that may be dose-dependent, and the number of movements during the night after partial- body cryostIMulation was significantly reduced only in the 180-s exposure condition. Expand
The use of whole-body cryotherapy: time- and dose-response investigation on circulating blood catecholamines and heart rate variability
TLDR
It is suggested that one − 110 °C WBC exposure is required to stimulate the ANS, and a lower autonomic response was recorded compared to day one, therefore suggesting the development of physiological habituation to WBC. Expand
Effects of Whole-Body Cryostimulation (-90°C) on Somnolence and Psychological Well-Being in an Older Patient with Restless Legs Syndrome.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that daily exposure to extremely cold air in an enclosed space for 2 weeks was feasible and effective in promoting physical and psychological states in an older patient with sleep disturbances. Expand
Post-exercise Heart Rate Variability: Whole-body Cryotherapy vs. Contrast Water Therapy.
TLDR
Spectral analysis revealed that contrast water therapy appears to be a more efficient recovery strategy than whole-body cryotherapy in restoring cardiac autonomic homeostasis. Expand
Impact of acute partial-body cryostimulation on cognitive performance, cerebral oxygenation, and cardiac autonomic activity
TLDR
It is demonstrated that a single PBC session enhances the cognitive inhibition performance on a Stroop task in males, partly mediated by a greater parasympathetic cardiac control and greater cerebral oxygenation. Expand
Effect of an Innovative Mattress and Cryotherapy on Sleep after an Elite Rugby Match
TLDR
MAT use had a positive effect on sleep architecture after an elite rugby union match, potentially through a more efficient nocturnal heat transfer. Expand
Preliminary study on the effect of sex on skin cooling response during whole body cryostimulation (-110 °C): Modeling and prediction of exposure durations.
TLDR
It appeared that for achieving the same cold-induced response, the required duration of cryostimulation is longer for males than for females. Expand
Whole‐body cryotherapy accelerates isometric muscle recovery in motocross riders following simulated motocross heats
TLDR
WBC exposure seems to accelerate isometric muscle recovery after a simulated motocross exercise, and the WBC group had a better recovery perception after recovery than the CONT group. Expand
Efficacy of the Whole-Body Cryotherapy as Add-on Therapy to Pharmacological Treatment of Depression—A Randomized Controlled Trial
TLDR
Whole-body cryotherapy is a useful method to improve standard pharmacological treatment and reduces mental health deterioration, especially in mood disorders, such as depression, and can be beneficial for well-being and quality of life. Expand
Multiple Cryotherapy Attenuates Oxi-Inflammatory Response Following Skeletal Muscle Injury
TLDR
It is demonstrated that WBC attenuates the cascade of injury–repair–regeneration of skeletal muscles whereby it may delay skeletal muscle regeneration. Expand

THE USE OF WHOLE-BODY CRYOSTIMULATION TO IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF SLEEP IN ATHLETES DURING HIGH LEVEL STANDARD COMPETITIONS
TLDR
The improvement of the QS during both competition and heavy training load periods appears of importance to enhance athletes' recovery. Expand
Sleep quantity and quality during consecutive day heat training with the inclusion of cold-water immersion recovery.
TLDR
Reducing training in the heat duration per day improved sleep latency and sleep quality with no effect on total sleep time, while the addition of CWI has minimal effect on sleep quality or quantity. Expand
Exercise-induced increase in core temperature does not disrupt a behavioral measure of sleep
TLDR
It is concluded that a 1-h bout of moderate-intensity exercise performed shortly before bed elevates core body temperature before and during sleep; however, this elevated temperature does not disrupt behavioral measures of sleep obtained in the home environment in physically active male college students who were somewhat sleep deprived. Expand
Effect of daily cold water immersion on heart rate variability and subjective ratings of well-being in highly trained swimmers.
TLDR
Five minutes of CWI following training can reduce the usual exercise-induced decrease in parasympathetic activity and is associated with improved rating of perceived sleep quality. Expand
Whole-Body Cryostimulation Limits Overreaching in Elite Synchronized Swimmers.
TLDR
WBC use during IT helped mitigate the signs of functional overreaching observed during ITCON, such as reduced sleep quantity, increased fatigue, and impaired exercise capacity, which support the daily use of WBC by athletes seeking to avoidfunctional overreaching during key periods of competition preparation. Expand
Night and postexercise cardiac autonomic control in functional overreaching.
TLDR
A decrease in cardiac parasympathetic control during slow-wave sleep and a faster heart rate recovery following the maximal graded exercise test were found, but not after the constant-speed test, after the overload period. Expand
Effects of whole‐body cryotherapy (−110 °C) on proprioception and indices of muscle damage
TLDR
WBC, administered 24 h after eccentric exercise, is ineffective in alleviating muscle soreness or enhancing muscle force recovery, and the results of this study indicate no increased risk of proprioceptive‐related injury following WBC. Expand

TLDR
The findings suggest that the psychological effects of acute sleep loss may contribute to decreased tolerance of prolonged heavy exercise. Expand
Effects of increased training load on vagal-related indexes of heart rate variability: a novel sleep approach.
TLDR
Results indicate that SWS discriminates the state of sympathovagal balance better than waking periods, and a moderate training load is sufficient to increase vagal-related HRV indexes. Expand
Whole-body cryostimulation increases parasympathetic outflow and decreases core body temperature.
TLDR
Results show that 3 min to cryotherapeutic temperatures causes significant changes in autonomic balance which are induced by peripheral and central blood volume changes. Expand
