I love this! One of my old coaches 20 years ago had us plunge regularly to help heal our internal systems, particularly after a hard sparring session. It worked for me quite well.

I am also mildly jealous of your access to cold, by that meaning you can put containers outside to freeze. I have to go to the store as my tiny ice maker can't keep up. Which is annoying, one day I'll be in a place where I can buy a legitimate plunge tank to sit in every day for five to ten minutes without worrying about buying ice. In the meantime, I do cryotherapy along with cold immersion as much as is possible. Even if it's just a dunk in that 60 degree Pacific Ocean right now.
