Icing balls to naturally boost T levels (not trolling)

I was wondering if ice bucket baths could damage the balls, as it feels like you got hit in the balls when your nuts are sunken in ice.

Surprisingly I stumbled upon quite the opposite research:

LMFAO.

I'd never sink my balls in ice .. well, I hope I never have too. I personally wouldn't mess around with that. If anything, maybe find a place where you can take some full ice baths? I'd definitely do ice baths.. seems like it could be very beneficial.

Well you'd have no choice if you were taking an ice bath. And ice baths are a lot easier than icing 30 different muscles that are fucked up lol.

Cold showers are the shit. I take one every day, sometimes up to 3x a day. Dunno about effects on T but it's a good controlled way to work on your willpower and get accustomed to forcing yourself to deal with discomfort.

 :highfive:

nice, I do the same, but following a very hot shower. So, really hot for a while, then adjust it to really cold and enjoy that for a few minutes.

tons of contrast shower studies improving recovery and even potential hormonal benefits iirc, but from my experience I just enjoy the transition from scolding to freezing. hah

a straight up cold shower from the start is pretty brutal.
