Fit Tip 3 – Hot Shower – Cold Shower

Muscle soreness is a problem that can be avoided by stretching and yes, hot then cold showers – rinse and repeat.

This fitness tip works by alternately constricting and then dilating the blood vessels which helps to get rid of things such as lactic acid which build up in the tissues.

You’ll notice that if you combine hot and then cold showers – ie 2 minutes of hot water (but not burning hot) then 30 seconds of cold – that way you’ll cut down or avoid the stiffness and soreness that usually appears 24 to 48 hours after a decent workout.

I'm an entrepreneur, runner (as of 5 years), dad, husband and entrepreneur. This year I've completed three 10k runs - Port Sunlight,  Manchester Great Run and the Natterjacks Southport run. My goal is to complete a 10k at below 50 minutes. I'm late 40's & want to keep healthy and fit for a long time yet... and that's what drives me to run. If you are looking for a running companion - up to 10 KM - in the Chester, area, get in touch. I can help set people up in business or just help people get great health and fitness products that can keep them fit, healthy and running for longer. Get in touch if you want to find out more about what I do and the Forever FIT products I work with. Or you can directly order from our shop.
