BACKGROUND Cold water immersion reduces exercise-induced muscle damage. Benefits may partly arise from a decline in limb blood flow; however, no study has comprehensively investigated the influence of different degrees of cooling undertaken via cold water immersion on limb blood flow responses. PURPOSE To determine the influence of cold (8°C) and cool (22°C) water immersion on lower limb and cutaneous blood flow. STUDY DESIGN Controlled laboratory study. METHODS Nine men were placed in a… CONTINUE READING
