Hey prez in relation to the HSP what do you think would be the impact of contrast showers i.e. alternating between hot and cold? The idea is that the change from vasodilation to vasoconstriction would flush by-product buildup and deliver oxygen rich blood therefore hastening recovery.

Also if trying to prevent or train around chronic inflamatory injuries such as tendinitous do you think it would still be advantageous to supress the inflamatory response by icing?
