An ice bath with a difference...

Natural Ice Bath

With the absence of traditional ice baths at United’s training base the management staff had to use the natural resources provided.

Strength and conditioning coach Matt Pears said: “Recovery is key during intense training periods. Cold water emersion helps reduce inflammation in the body.

“During training players pick up small micro tremors and the cold water acts to decrease the inflammation. When the players exit the water they will have a rush of blood delivering oxygen to the muscle groups that need replenishing.

“The water temperature is six degrees where as a normal ice bath is between eight and 11 degrees.”
