Ok, I just want a practical disscussion about cold-thermogenesis. I don't want a debate about Dr. Kruse, or that I'm stupid for doing this or any other snarky comments that seem to be the norm around here lately.
So far I've done 3 days of full immersion in about 52 deg water. I can sit in there for about 20-30 min no problem. My question is what to do when getting out? Should I have a hot shower right away or just wrap myself in a blanket. After the first time I kept my socks on and wore gloves as that really helped with the fingers and toes from getting too cold and uncomfortable. I am finding that even with a 10 min hot shower then wrapping myself in a blanket after, I am still cold for almost an hour after. Is this normal? I figured I would warm up more quickly than that. In just these 3 days I've dropped 4 lbs, without changing anything else, so i am going to continue but I don't like the hour of coldness after. Is that just the price I have to pay, or should I excersise? maybe some pushups and squats or something? Any tips? (other than stop doing it). Thanks
