Cold is good.


5 rounds for time

10 Tuck Jumps
10 Push Ups
10 Sit Ups
10 Super Mans
10 Pull Ups

Some days, that soreness can be a bit much. Even after a bit of ibuprofen. Ice is a great way to keep the DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness) in check. There's a reason we see pics of NFL guys in an ice bath after a huge game. It helps with swelling and pain.

If you're feeling really sore in a particular area after a workout, or new movement. Ice the place that's feeling off. If you don't have an actually bag o' ice, use whatever vegetables you have in the freezer. You can eat them once they've thawed. I prefer peas.
