Anyone take cold showers here?

Cold shower crew checking in

2019-01-21 01:12:08 UTC  

Been doing it since 2010 and feel like hot showers dont get me clean anymore

2019-01-21 01:15:25 UTC  

I took it up a couple years ago and they definitely help you regulate body temp better and I rarely if ever get sick.

2019-01-21 01:46:33 UTC  

Now how cold do you guys go?

2019-01-21 01:46:44 UTC  

like do you barely turn the water on?

2019-01-21 02:13:30 UTC  

If it's a particularly cold day I'll start on lukewarm and work my way down, but usually I barely turn it on, yes. I just turn it on enough to the point where the pressure is normal

2019-01-23 02:02:17 UTC  

I have really, really itchy skin 10-30 mins after cold shower. What am I doing wrong? I can easily handle the cold itself but the itch drives me mad.

2019-01-23 02:55:39 UTC  

You have dry skin

2019-01-23 02:56:40 UTC  

Cold water shouldn't dry it out (hot will) but it might be your body wash or just the winter

2019-01-23 02:56:47 UTC  

Especially if you're in MN

2019-01-23 03:53:52 UTC  

Put lotion on after you dry off

2019-01-23 14:13:54 UTC  

Yes, my skin is very dry. And it is extremely cold up here on the border. Thank you for the tip.

2019-01-23 18:01:36 UTC  

Body wash tends to dry out the skin, which is exarcerbated by a cold climate and dry heat from household heaters.

I use moisturizing body wash and there is also moisturizer/lotion that is designed to be applied in the shower. You can pick these up at most large grocery stores.

2019-01-23 19:01:12 UTC  

@Wood-Ape - OK/MN I like to use a brush with semi strong bristles, not a luffa. I argue the brush helps get rid of dead skin. Moisturizing afterwards or having good water intake also helps out

As some comedian whose name I can’t remember said, “white people missed the ‘lotion’ seminar and black people missed the ‘register your weapons’ seminar.”

2019-01-24 21:58:26 UTC  

I only learned I needed lotion during the winter in boot camp when the black guys were all using it

2019-01-29 01:41:57 UTC  

ashy skin = bad optics

7 pistol squats IN A ROW

2019-01-29 02:34:30 UTC  

@everyone any bjj guys going to LOPF, be sure to bring gi and no-gi gear. Somewhere, somehow I'm trying to roll, and also make connections for future training meetups.

2019-01-29 02:35:54 UTC  

@GloopGod lets roll at the resort in front of Jared Taylor

2019-01-29 02:37:30 UTC  

Of all the self-indulgences, that has to be a forgivable one

2019-01-29 11:37:48 UTC  

@GloopGod I'm in

2019-02-03 02:11:26 UTC  

So just an FYI don't run a mile while having only one hour of sleep my guys

2019-02-03 04:16:31 UTC  

Sleep is the single most important aspect of fitness

2019-02-04 01:31:58 UTC  

@Will - MD May I request a skiing/snowboarding channel?

2019-02-04 01:34:17 UTC  

For you, I will do this @Argument of Perigee

2019-02-04 01:35:56 UTC  

Skol, my friend!

2019-02-04 14:54:54 UTC  

Are we allowed to discuss USPSA (or similar organizations) in this server, or is that off limits?

2019-02-05 17:10:50 UTC  


2019-02-05 17:15:53 UTC  

@Nick-NJ it’s Practical shooting. Running around stages shooting at paper and steel targets and getting scored on points and time.

2019-02-08 00:33:51 UTC  

What’s up boys. We got any boxers in the bunch?

2019-02-08 01:25:04 UTC  

yezzir i've boxed a round or two

2019-02-08 16:01:14 UTC

2019-02-08 22:13:32 UTC  

@Ryan -NJ I do strictly heavy bag workouts, that’s it.

2019-02-11 23:57:54 UTC  

I've done some boxing @Ryan -NJ

2019-02-11 23:58:25 UTC  

Great sport, but I'm pretty apprehensive about brain damage at this point. Once my back heals, I'll probably stick to BJJ.

2019-02-12 00:01:56 UTC  

@Reinhard Wolff TBI is a serious and legitimate thing to be cautious about. I’ve had a couple concussions myself from the “sweet science”. It’s always fun to check the tank and see if I can still hang with the young guys.

2019-02-12 02:34:43 UTC  

@Ryan -NJ Will you be at the conference?

2019-02-12 03:29:06 UTC  

@Will - MD Indeed. Should I bring some mits?
