Heat & Cold Shock Proteins: Are Fire & Ice Nice to Your Body? w/Dr. Andy Galpin

Heat & Cold Shock Proteins: Are Fire & Ice Nice to Your Body? w/Dr. Andy Galpin

We know that heat and cold shock proteins form in the body in reaction to changes in temperature, but what do they do and should we be trying hard to get them?

  • How much do you need to change your body temperature to get a reaction?
  • What, if anything, are cryo- chambers good for?
  • Is it enough to just get hot or do you need to moving (like doing hot yoga)?
  • When in a training cycle should you use them?

Dr. Andy Galpin joins us again as expert for this discussion. Andy is a tenured Professor in the Center for Sport Performance at CSU Fullerton, and holds a PhD in Bioenergetics.

Our ideas start at about 13:18.

Andy starts dropping knowledge starting at around 18:00.
