    So what exactly is the deal with having cold showers? I come out of them in pretty much the exact same state as I went in.

    Is it just a phrase or something?

    Should you fall into freezing water people that take regular cold showers are less likely to get 'cold shock' or something. Dunno it was on Blue Peter I wasn't really paying attention.

    Taking a cold shower after a work out keeps the muscles tense i think, meaning that they build up better. That's just from what i've heard.

    I heard it improves the circulation but I'm not all that sure.

    i don't think cold showers are actually advisable. it doesn't improve circulation, and unlike warm / hot showers, it doesn't help with losing weight. the only think good about cold showers i can think of is that after a warm shower, a quick rinse with cold water can close up the pores of the skin so less dirt in the air will get in throughout the day. :rolleyes:

    It's totally anecdotal I realise, but my mum's not been ill (ie. colds etc) since she started having a cold shower daily about 15 months ago. I am not always brave enough - but I love it when I get the courage.
