My secret for aching joints… ICE BATH.

I started doing this in high school and every athlete did this in college. And it’s simple…
Step 1: fill tub with ice and water.
Step 2: sit in tub for 10 to 15 minutes.

I promise you that your joints (and your “joint”) will not ache. The Russians love doing this and then they beat themselves with branches (that’s where they lose me.)

Joints are inflamed, nerves are irritated, this gets the blood away.

Recently I ran that Ragnar relay and covered 18 miles in a day. I came home, sat in the ice for 15 minutes and was not sore the next day. My feet, knees, ankles, back…all good to go.
