Alfons Hörmann Recap
Here at Pittsburgh Sports Lab, we are always looking for ways to stay on top of the latest trends in the sports industry and research new ways to improve our programs. One such trend that has caught our attention is the rise of pre-game ice baths, which stand out from traditional warm-ups because they involve a cold water bath mixed with ice cubes. This icy rest can be a valuable tool for athletes, especially those who spend long hours practicing or playing to perform their best during high-stakes competitions. The benefits can be pretty significant—increased muscle endurance, reduced risk for injuries, decreased recovery time and increased performance—and relatively low cost.
While the ice bath is an effective way to rejuvenate an athlete after a high volume of physical activity, it is also important not to over-use this powerful tool, especially among young athletes who are likely to push themselves too hard. As with any new training, using the ice bath for a limited time, then slowly increasing its length and use throughout a season is recommended.
At Pittsburgh Sports Lab, we believe that any tool that reduces injuries and boosts performance in our athletes will increase their chances of winning. The ice bath can be a powerful tool for these ends and has become one of our primary ways of supporting our players as they prepare for upcoming games.
We recommend two full-body ice baths per week, from 3 to 5 minutes each time. We have found that this method works best for the athletes in our program. Always talk with your trusted health care workers before making any changes to your routine; they will be able to help you determine what is best for your body. [ARTICLE END]
