Rugby can take its toll on the body. The intense training and rough games mean it’s crucial that your body can recover effectively and you’re at peak performance so you can play your best. Ice baths for rugby players and saunas for rugby players are beneficial not only for recovery but also to enhance performance. Below we list the benefits of ice baths and saunas for rugby players that make it easy to see why they are fast becoming a popular addition to a rugby player’s training regime.

Are Ice Baths Good For Rugby Players?

One of the main reasons ice baths for rugby players can be so beneficial is that they can help to boost and speed up the recovery process. Ice baths have been shown to reduce inflammation, swelling & aches and can also help to remove lactic acid build-up in the body.

Other benefits of ice baths for rugby players include:

  • Improved cardiovascular health
  • Central nervous system stimulation (which can boost alertness and energy levels)
  • Improvement to your mental wellbeing, resilience, mood and ability to cope with stressors.
  • Boosted metabolism

Saunas For Rugby Players

Benefits of saunas for rugby players include a reduction in inflammation, swelling & muscle soreness, improved circulation & metabolism, relaxation, better stress management and improved sleep.

Whilst the benefits of saunas for rugby players are similar to ice baths for rugby players, how your body achieves them is different as your body responds differently (different systems are activated) based on the hot and cold temperatures. This means that whilst the outcomes may be similar, the overall effect on our bodies is different. And, if you combine the two (known as hot/cold therapy), this can enhance the benefits as well as add additional ones. If you’d like to know more about hot/cold therapy and using Ice baths for rugby players and saunas for rugby players together we can give you guidance on the best way to do this.
