      This. There was a study showing that extended hot showers decrease test. Some retard thought he did a science by saying the reverse must also be true, ie cold showers increase test. They don't.

    No. Don't do it if you don't want to. Why would you come here and ask a bunch of strangers to talk you into doing something you don't want to do

    i take them after heavy workouts -aka triceps and chest- which helps with muscle soreness. i didnt take shower after my push day once and i couldnt sleep at night due to my muscle soreness.

      extremely retarded, stop killing your hypertrophy. soreness = adaptatio, do NOT take a cold shower at least 4 hours afterwards

    Huberman talks about them a bit in the dopamine episode, stating that they increase baseline dopamine IIRC

    No real sources, just general shit i've heard from other retards, extending this to cold/ice baths and cryogenic stupid shit:

    increased dopamine, decreased cortisol, faster recovery, decreases soreness, helps cardiovascular system for reasons???, trains mental fortitude, saves money

    I've heard similar anecdotes about hot showers (or saunas.) No idea how true any of this is. I do contrast showers, where I switch from hot to cold, which I feel reduce soreness.

    Sometimes I finish off with cold water just because it wakes me up a bit. Feel like it could have mild antidepressant effects, but as we all know antidepressants are gay as fuck

    As others have said it's a meme. It'll certainly wake you up so there's a possible benefit if you take showers in the morning. I exercise and shower after work in the late afternoon, so I take a lukewarm shower since that feels fairly normal/relaxing (hot showers are bad for your skin).

    >wakes you up
    >you shower faster cuz you don't want to stay in cold for long, thus you save money and time
    >you also save money cuz you don't use heat

    probably also
    >does something with blood vessels idk what, something good i guess? idk
    >you get used to cold so when it's winter you don't shake like a retard

    probablly do nothing, but i love LARPing as a tech priest so taking cold showers in order to minimize water and electricity waste seems optimal to me

    When I'm overheated, I take them because they're cold.

    I started taking cold showers because in elementary school someone said I had to, and I do that to this day

    Cold showers are good to start the day because they wake you up. I also get sick very rarely and am resistant to cold in winter. I also have nice skin.

    But all of this could be the result of genes or other factors, even placebo. Now I am afraid that if I start taking hot showers I will die
