pretty interesting read, the long and short of it; the skin on your hands has a vasculatory network that can help rapidly regulate your core temperature. The cooler your core is, the better you can recover from exercise. Hold cold things when pumped, get depumped way faster?

Maybe only works for more cardio related activities, but might be worth taking a nalgene of frozen water to the gym and trying it out...

That's why I always bring a cold beer to "help depump." Anthony A.

Very interesting. I am going to try this, I mean bringing a frozen water bottle with me and holding it between routes is easy and doesn't cost a thing. So do you think a metal or plastic watter bottle would be best? Metal will transfer hear better but if it gets too cold the "radiator" can/may shut down so the less rapid cooling of a plastic water bottle or Nalgene may work better. If anyone else is going to try this please report your findings back to this thread. Lets put this to the test and if it works try to optimize it!!! NickMartel
