I have decided to drop some body fat. My diet is in order, my lifting, and conditioning are in order. Also, I just recently started using the EC stack to help expedite the process.
Now, for the interesting stuff… In the past I’ve used cold showers to help with my mental toughness, I think it’s important, so I started doing them again. I notice that after I’m done taking the shower I feel warmer. I’m assuming this is due to adaptive thermogenesis. Also, since I recently moved to a cold climate I decided I will crack the window at night and turn down the thermostat. I take a shower right before bed, so I will go from the cold shower pretty much straight to bed.
I really don’t have any way to quantify the effects of the cold exposure, but I suppose I could take my temperature every morning- I don’t know what this will tell me, though.
I found one study on cold exposure, but it wasn’t very conclusive.
Anyway, what thoughts do you guys have?
