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.
