Did you know that applying Cryochaps up to 3 hours after exercise could still have benefits?
Obviously in an ideal world we would apply ice and compression immediately after exercise, however studies indicate that application up to 3 hours after exercise could have benefits and is better than doing nothing!
A study in humans comparing no cold water immersion, cold water immersion directly after exercise and cold water immersion 3 hours after exercise returned the following conclusion.
“Performance of cold water immersion as a recovery procedure following exercise is better than performing no recovery procedure. Athletes, coaches and sport trainers should implement cold water immersion post-exercise irrespective of the time of administration.Where possible, cold water immersion should be performed immediately post-exercise to gain maximal recovery benefits.”
So if you forget to take your Cryochaps out with you, you can still apply them when you return home!
