Hot & Cold Showers

Cold vs. Hot Showers.

Cold showers can help activate certain fat burning cells in our body known as brown adipose tissue (which burns fat to produce heat). Make sure the water hits the upper part of your chest and back and stay in the cold as long as you can (also a great opportunity to practice being comfortable in the uncomfortable).

Hot showers helps relax tight muscles making after a hot shower one of the best times for stretching and mobility work. Even better if this is right before bed as the cooling of our body temperature can often help some of us fall asleep.
