Interesting. It’s like, “Coffee’s going to kill you - no, it’s good for you!” “Don’t drink wine - wait, it’ll make you live longer!”
Every study in athletics comes with a study showing the opposite.
(I’m in no mood for ice baths after running, and I don’t have the facilities for it if I wanted to.)

(Reality doesn't say much - doesn't need too)
For some reason, I strongly bet that the test subjects in this one were likely very unrepresentative of the athletic field, and the tests involved bore no relation whatsoever to the hardened exercise efforts of the top tier competitors. Thus the data is, alas, meaningless, except to the rest of us - Do not go run 3 miles after sitting on the couch all winter and go polar bear club it right afterward.

Athletes who take ice baths to prevent muscle soreness after exercise could be doing more harm than good, researchers said yesterday.
Not to mention the severe shrinkage. (:^D)
