Ice baths are a thing of the past.  Liquid nitrogen baths are so in.

Yes, you read that right.  Athletes are turning to bathing themselves in temperatures around -200 to -300 degrees Fahrenheit with the help of liquid nitrogen "cryosaunas", and it's working.  Athletes are recovering faster from reduced inflammation, reduced muscular tension, soreness and increased energy.  Big names like LeBron James, Floyd Mayweather, Jr. , Christiano Ronaldo, Usain Bolt, Kobe Bryant... and results to match, are proving that this recovery technique actually works.  How does it work exactly?  Adam Silvers from EliteDaily explains:

The extreme cold an athlete feels inside the chamber forces the body to go into survival mode, which forces the blood supply to move to the most critical organs in order to transport oxygen and nutrients.


Basically, after leaving the cryosauna and performing a recommended 10- to 15-minute warmup to get the body moving again, one actually has cleaner blood pumping through the body.
