Study from the National Institute of Sport, Expertise and Performance (INSEP), Paris, France. Nine well-trained runners performed 3 repetitions of a simulated trail run. All participants were tested immediately (1 hour after exercise), post 24 hours, and post 48 hours after exercise, using three different recovery modalities - Whole Body Cryotherapy, Infrared therapy and passive rest in a random order over three separate weeks.
Maximal muscle strength and perceived sensations were recovered after the first WBC session (post 1 h), while recovery took 24 h with FIR, and was not attained at all through the PAS recovery modality.
Study from the National Institute of Sport, Expertise and Performance (INSEP), Paris, France. The purpose of this study was to test the efficacy of whole body cryotherapy (WBC), far infrared (FIR) or passive (PAS) modalities in hastening muscular recovery within the 48 hours after a simulated trail running race. In 3 non-adjoining weeks, 9 well-trained runners performed 3 repetitions of a simulated trail run on a motorized treadmill, designed to induce muscle damage. Immediately (post), post 24 h, and post 48 h after exercise, all participants tested three different recovery modalities (WBC, FIR, PAS) in a random order over the three separate weeks.
