  • Cold showers boost the immune system. Since I started taking cold showers I have only gotten sick once in over 2 years. And that was only because I over trained several days in a row in 100+ degree weather. They also reduce stress

  • Hello Guru Mann sir
    My question is
    Agar hum workour Ac me karege to kam pasina aayega aur agar workout without AC me karege to pasina jyada aayega.. plese bataye…
    ……kya pasina jyada aane se weight loss hota he. Mujhe weight kam karna he…

  • So, there has got to be a genetic component to this.. there are MANY cold weather climate people, who are (excuse my language), FUCKING RETARD STRONG. Russian athletes for instance. Many of whom do this as a part of training. I am, genetically, Danish. Men and women in my family are the stereotypical tall blonde monsters. I do cold showers and workout for strength and muscle mass and have had no issues developing progress. Also, cold showers snap you right into the present moment and do for me, what coffee supposedly does, for most people.

  • Go to Russia where the people are really strong. They don’t only take ice baths/could showers but they also live in a cold area. Many of then have muscles like Hulk.

  • It doesnt stop hypertrophy. If taken right after training, it stops the adaptation that we all seek and free radicals. But wait for sometime after, and you recover faster, and doesnt stop hypertrophy.

  • Impossible to understand you buddy please use subtitles or just put your title in a different language so we don’t waist time trying to understand. You are just wasting people time!!

  • You should work on yr script or topic before making a video.. you lack confidence while talking…again not saying you were wrong just the way you convey the information

  • I go in the sauna for 20 mins. as soon as I’m done with my workout. After that go home and take a cold shower about 20 to 25 mins after I exit the sauna. This has done miracles for my recovery. Overall I don’t get sore anymore.

  • When I’m in the sauna, I get all the benefits; my lungs feel cleared out, my skin feels radiant, etc. When I take a warm or hot bath, I get no benefits and my skin feels super itchy and dry. Ruins my day

  • Kabhi esa bhi suna h koi bht tez dhup sy aya bht garmi sy or aty hi thandy pani s naha liya ya ac m let gya to wo mar gya to is hisab s jb ap bht hard wrkout krk hate ho or body ek dam grm h to kiya jb bhi thandy pni s nha skte hn?

  • After watching your videos, I don’t feel the need to gather more information from different sources about the topic because you always provide detailed information to your viewers. Thanks a lot.

  • bright side can you ake a video about can we trust your videos because there is a lot of talk about your channel being bad even my friend said so i think your awesome i like all your videos not like hiting the like button because i cant do that to all your videos
    so uh yeah could you please make a video about that also like this commet if you want them to make a video like that too! also please sub to my youtube channel its OofBoysSMH thanks!

  • Northern California where I live water out of the tap is ice cold in 2 minutes the longer you leave it on the colder it gets its insane it’s hard to wash the car hands freeze and no way on cold bath it’s to cold my nuts would be up in throat lol

  • Heard her speaking at a hospital conference in Arkansas of all places… I was in the hallway taking down my booth and heard the oddly familiar voice over the speaker talking about…. you guessed it, heat shock proteins

  • Hey Jason, do you have an opinion on adding Epsom salts to the bath? The scientist in me knows it’s too big to be absorbed through the skin, however most of my competitive running friends swear by them. Thanks for the good vids/podcasts, keep them coming!

  • Define the injury you mentioned for cold shower. Does it include muscle soreness,which usually happens after long delay of no workout?

  • You talk about calories for all the activities. But is it calories or kilocalories you mean? Because if it is just calories then is it so little that one doesn’t lose weight.

  • Workout karne aur post workout meal lene k kitne time baad shower lena chahiye? so that it doesn’t mess up with digestion of the post workout meal.

  • So no information given about the ACTUAL study or anything relevant to the title… but made sure to pimp the fuck out of his sauna, plug products, and remind us once again he’s moving to Brentwood, Tennessee ��

  • This is insane and bullshit….he talks like he knows the mechanism…Baar Baar ek he baat bol Raha hai itni badi video mein….what a waste of time….not to forget his phn show off….learn something from atheletex videos..and pls do not go into mechanism when u do not know it deeply…..kise ko injury Hou he can do ice packs…usually after gym people take steam who want to get rid of fat…..and then normal bath…don’t fool people by making these lengthy non sense videos which are more of a showoff of you phone ��

  • People are supposed to walk 10,000 steps a day or 5 miles
    The majority of people walk between 4000 to 2000 steps a day
    I burn 600 to 800 calories a day
    walking 6 miles a day

  • This makes sense because i take a lot of hot baths and it’s not good for my skin, but i can’t shake the depression so i keep doing it. Been fighting the depression for 20 years.

  • Those “sauna/sweat” shirts they advertise for weight loss: I don’t believe the weight loss claim but can they reproduce actual effects from a sauna?

  • If you are laughing intensely for an entire hour then there is probably a problem no matter how funny the thing was I don’t care if you just found out that your friend saw a girls back and went to ask her out then realized he just asked out his sister…you shouldnt be laughing an hour

  • This explains why Russian banya is so great. You go from a hot humid sauna like room and when u can’t handle it anymore u jump into a cold bath or in winter break the ice and jump in the water

  • just a heads up, the research article link he posted, requires you to pay to view the article in full. reading an abstract will not give you enough meaningful info to take away applicable information from the article

  • I feel like this is kind of obvious. The clinical trial and the data are cool, but who doesn’t know about hiding out in a steamy shower for 20 -30 minutes when you’re having a horrible day?

  • if it dosent occur in nature naturally then the Human body is not designed for it, same thing with taking supplements, especially vitamins, your body has to work extra hard to get rid of the stupid crap you willingly put inside your body

  • I miss my gym sauna… can’t wait for that to open (likewise the steam room) prefer that to a hot bath anyday. Love a cold shower as well. All sounds wonderful science. The worst thing for me is to sit in a sauna for 20 minutes and then go into the shower and then the pool and that is like ‘arrrgh’… way too cold.

  • Rhonda Patrick…so glad to listen to this woman on Joe Rogan channel, learning a lot. How is Joe’s videos gonna get airtime on SPOTIFY??

  • Sir whenever I take cold shower after workout, I feel crazy itching all over my body, but don’t gt any problem if I take hot shower, don’t know why, can you please guide

  • Hot cold bath se matlab nahi hai. Bath lene k baad body apna normal temperature pe aah jaati h. Kuch difference nahi hai. Kuch b pain thik nahi hota yaaro

  • I am absolutely no expert in this field but I have some experience to share.

    In India where I grew up, we like cool (not COLD) showers at the end of the day which more often than not, has been a sweaty one.

  • How about yall just work out. Shopping is not even in comparison to working out. This is truly what shows the difference between men and woman.

  • Pro footballers always have an ice bath after their workout and then a hot bath to open up blood flow for next session which is 2.5 hours later. good information

  • Ice baths are more for soothing inflammation, and apparently anything anti-inflammatory inhibits muscle gains (at least in this channel).

  • Cold water se mujhay flue hojata hai. Garmi jitni bhi ho mujhay hot water se hi bath Lena parhta hai. Me kiya karon koi solution batain

  • Cold bath is better than sauna because it wakes up all your working cells that are misled by heat? Or just do what ones knows to work for each individual ����

  • Cool thanks for letting us know about the study. Though cold weather body adaptation is a real thing. That’s why neanderthals where strong and had more hypertrophic muscle than modern human. This was due to the cold weather and how the body adapts to the cold. More muscle equals being less cold

  • How about no cold showers or saunas to create a reaction in our brains and just let them do what they’re doing….250,000 years of evolution is probably better than a cold shower

  • A sauna with her would cure me of many ailments. No sex, just a sauna. The sight of a naked woman is a real cure for many men. But real sex is the bomb. Go figure.

  • I doubt anyone will see this ✨ but I’ve been on YouTube for a while. I’m just trying to feed my family ❤ my goal is to reach 700 before the summer �� I don’t mean to be irritating but I show love and support to everyone as well ���� so if you want support I’m here for you. Even a like �� so other people can recognize. It would be great ❤❤❤!

  • Welp hot showers here I come better c more gains but from my POV cold showers are the shit but I’ll try this for a few months and c if there’s a difference

  • It would be so nice to take a hot bath but because of CLIMATE CHANGE and over population we are in water crisis…. so its really not advisable.

  • A good friend owned a hot springs in S. Colorado. We used to go there for a week or so before continuing to Telluride. 1970’s. He had built a sauna with a pot belly stove. It was placed on a concrete slab directly over a creek. A 5X5 pond was in the middle. Anytime you got too hot you could just dip down in the icy cold water. Aah…the old days.

  • But it does wonders for recovery. Cryotherapy has become a staple in the majority of the elite athletes protocol for recovering so, there you go…

  • Is obvious why we put meat in the freezer? It get smaller also if u a guy what happen to ur testicle? So yes cold weather or cold shower kills ur gainz no brainer.
