As with any sport, intense training and physical exertion can take its toll on your body. Finding effective methods that aid better recovery can boost your performance on the court as well as minimise injury. Ice baths for basketball players and saunas for basketball players are increasingly becoming part of training regimes – and for good reason. If you’re wondering are ice baths good for basketball players as well as saunas, below we list the benefits of both so you can see why so many basketball players are adopting these methods to improve their game.

Are Ice Baths Good For Basketball Players?

Research has shown that ice baths for basketball players can not only be beneficial for recovery but can help minimise injury and ultimately enhance performance. The benefits of using ice baths for basketball players can include:

  • Muscle recovery (speeds up the recovery process)
  • Improves cardiovascular health
  • Reduction in inflammation, swelling and aches
  • Flushing out any built-up lactic acid in the body
  • Stimulates the central nervous system which can boost alertness and energy levels
  • Boosted metabolism
  • Enables you to focus on mindful breathing
  • Improves your mental wellbeing, resilience, mood and ability to cope with stressors
Reduction of muscle oedema and increased cardiac output (without increasing energy expenditure), which increases blood flow and possible nutrient and waste transportation through the body.

Saunas For Basketball Players

Saunas for basketball players have also been shown to be beneficial. And, combining saunas for basketball players with ice baths (alternating between the two temperature extremes) can enhance the benefits of both even further.

Further benefits of saunas for basketball players can include:

  • Reducing inflammation and swelling
  • Reducing muscle soreness
  • Improving circulation and metabolism
  • Increasing relaxation
  • Better stress management
  • Improved sleep
