Fact or Fiction-getting grabbed by the bear
« on: January 23, 2008, 05:19:16 AM »
I heard awhile back that if your out for a long day of training and your body is hot and you suddenly take in mass amounts of cold water your muscles will contract very fast and squeeze your torso, have you ever heard of this.
Break free for the bloody shackles of society, and flow like water in a river. We Are Free.

You are getting arrested for doing kongs in a precision only zone.

Go with the flow-HA, I am the flow.

Somewhat true. It's not a good idea to jump in a pool of cold water right after extremely intense physical exertion because your muscles will start to cramp up like that and you can go into cardiac arrest (rare cases). Cool down first and then go take your cold shower/cold jump in a pool/etc.
