Martin Rooney is nuts!

One of the strength coaches whose work I constantly follow is Martin Rooney. I had the pleasure of meeting Martin last summer and he's a great guy. He's super passionate and SO intense! He's been all over the world working with various groups. Check out the video above of him engaging in some "contrast temperature" work with his colleagues in Finland. I did something similar in college with a group of athletes, but we just used super hot and freezing cold water in the showers after strength training workouts. I don't know that it minimized muscle soreness, but it was definitely invigorating- and crazy! It kind of goes without saying, but don't do what Coach Rooney and his pals did at home!
