Anyone Use Cold Packs Post-Workout ?
i've never used cold packs before. recently i've started doing some exercises that i've never done before (mostly some crossfit/mma-type stuff) like kettlebell swings, cleans, push-presses etc that have been causing post-workout pain/soreness in the delt/trap/collarbone areas. i'm mid-40's so my recovery time isn't what it used to be . so , regarding cold packs, what would be the specifics on using re: timing ... do i use immediately(within minutes) after the workout ? Or is it ok to use the packs a few hours later or is that too late for max efficiency ? Also can anyone recommend a particular brand (cost is no issue) cuz i know there are tons of brands out there...i'd want one that stays secure w/o slippage and one that stays cold the longest. Thanx !
