About temperature in CT

    I have read on the blogs that you recommend to have water that is 50-55 degree when doing the cold baths. But I also read on of the linked article, specifically the one about the football players who does CT after training.

    "Sitting waist deep in 38-degree water for a recommended 20 minutes is in no way a casual dip in the pool. "

    "Water in the tub is kept between 38 and 39 degrees."

    Is there a reason they use 38-39 degree water instead of the 50-55 degree that you recommend?
    Or is it just that they don't know better and they would actually be better off with using 50-55 instead?

    Or is there any benefits you get when going to colder temperatures? Especially for recovery as that is what they use it for?
