    How do you know you are ready to add on another 5-10 minutes to the cold immersion bath?

    I want to keep advancing, but I also don't want to push it too far.

    I just forced it. Mind over matter in my case. I play podcasts to keep my mind busy so I don't keep complaining in my head LOL. Makes the time fly by now! How long are you going now? How cold?

    Are you both gradually cold adapting, or did you just take plunge?

    I'm not sure if this is gradual or not. But I did the face dunking, then the icepack to 60 minutes. Then started with 10 minute 50F baths.

    Now I am up to 35 minutes at 50 F. But I'm just not sure when to push it to 40 minutes and beyond.

    Just let your body tell you. If you are shivering really bad after the 35 minute bath, then stick to the 35 minutes and allow your body to adapt. The shivering won't go away, but it should subside as you adapt. If I eat right before the bath, then I find that I shiver the least or very little. Make sure you are supplementing or eating bitter melon.

    How long to face dunk before doing CT in a bath?

    I assume I can do ice packs on specific body parts at any time during the adaptation?

    Do I really need to measure temp of water and my skin?

    Initially, I shivered the first immersion bath I did.

    But since then, nada.

    I don't shiver at all. But after 35 minutes, I am darn cold!!! And it takes a long time to warm up - couple of hours.
