If you train regularly with the  gi then your hands (like mine) are probably wrecked all the time. I’ve tried icing my hands with ice packs and that is more of a pain in the ass. So when Andre Galvao was here for a recent seminar I asked him what kind of stuff he does for his hands. He said that submerging them in ice water helped. So I figured it’s worth a try? I have found that in my very unscientific testing that about 20 seconds at a time works best (mostly because it’s my pain limit). So I’ve been going with 20 seconds in and 10-15 seconds out, then 20 seconds submerged again. This seems to be about all I can stand. I will wait about five minutes and repeat it again. I’m sure the relief I am feeling is very temporary…but who cares any relief at this point feels incredible! So give it a try and happy training. LEAVEE COMMENTS OR TIPS BELOW AND SUBSCRIBE TO MY YOUTUBE CHANNEL!!!
