– Today we take a bath… in ice.
– Let’s talk about that. ♪ (theme music) ♪ Goooood Mythical Morning-g-g-g!
(shivers, puffs air) Today we’re gonna do something that we
occasionally do, which is put ourself through something unpleasant for your
entertainment. So get ready for that. – It’s happening again. Ice baths.
– I’m just– Agh, ice baths. I… – Man, I didn’t sleep well last night.
– Really? – Thinking about this.
– Thinking about this? – Yeah!
– Well, I feel sorry for you. But I’m also – doing it, so not really.
– I mean, don’t you question whether – we can do this?
– I don’t wanna think about that. I am – positive. I’m a positive thinker.
– He questioned just seconds ago – whether we could even do this.
– Don’t tell them that! This is what I wanna tell you. I wanna
tell you that ice baths are something that people have done– humans have done this
for ages! In cold places, people like to run and jump into arctic pools and cut
holes in ice and they run and take a – little ice bath.
– Boop! It enlivens you! It’s a way to experience
all that there is on the human spectrum – of experience! Cold and hot!
– Oh! People do that. They get really cold and
then they go into a sauna and then they – come back out, you know?
– Are we gonna get really hot? – It makes you live forever, I don’t know.
– No. But, interestingly, one of the things
that’s happened in more recent past is – athletics has incorporated…
– Athletics have been around a while. Athletics have happened in recent past,
no. So, athletes are now doing this as a treatment. Apparently, ice baths help with
reducing inflammation, so a lot of people who work out really hard and then they’ll
go and get in the ice bath, and there’s a quicker recovery time. There’s marathon
runners that really swear by this thing. And also when people are injured, it’s a
great way to treat the inflammation. And you live longer because
everything’s being slowed down. – Slows down. Oh, yeah.
– But your quality of life also slows – down to a crawl.
– Here’s how it works. Typically, you take an ice bath for 6-8 minutes,
and when athletes do this, they’re kinda doing it for their extremities, so
sometimes they’ll wear a rubber cover over their midsection so they don’t cool
their core temperature too much. But – anyway, they do it for about 6-8 minutes.
– Are we gonna do that? No. So we’re gonna do this today, but there’s
no rubberized cover. In fact, we’re making – it a little bit more interesting.
– Yeah. We have gotten our hands on some huge metal vats that we’re gonna be taking
ice baths in. This ain’t no dinky just stick your toe in. We’re sticking our
entire bodies in these ice baths. And then we’re gonna
try to go eight minutes. – Yeah.
– And every two minutes, we have devised something to up the ante and make it even
colder. Who are we and why do we exist? – For this kinda thing.
– This is gonna be great! People do this and now
we’re joining their ranks. (both) To the ice baths! ♪ (dramatic music) ♪

    Please, do not take an ice bath and then immediately go somewhere hot like a sauna. That is incredibly unhealthy and can make you very sick. The human immune system does not enjoy extreme temperature fluctuations.
