This randomized, controlled laboratory study was designed to examine the effect of cold water immersion (CWI) as a recovery modality on repeat performance on the Yo-Yo Intermittent Recovery Test (YIRT), a widely accepted tool for evaluation of physical performance in soccer, separated by 48 h. Twenty-two healthy division I collegiate soccer players (13 males, 9 females, age 19.8±1.1 years, height 174.0±9.0 cm, mass 72.1±9.1 kg) volunteered as participants during the non-competitive season. The YIRT was used to induce volitional fatigue and was administered at baseline and again 48 h later. Athletes progressively increased sprint speed between markers set 20 m apart until pace was failed. Countermovement vertical jump (CMVJ) was used to assess anaerobic power, and was measured prior to YIRT, immediately post-YIRT, and 24- and 48 h post-YIRT. A 10 cm horizontal visual analog scale was administered immediately, 24- and 48 h post-YIRT to assess perceived fatigue in the legs (PF). Participants were randomly placed into the CWI or a control group. The CWI condition consisted of immersion to the umbilicus in a 12°C pool for 15 min, while the control group sat quietly for 15 min. There were no significant differences between intervention conditions on YIRT performance (control 4900±884 m, CWI 5288±1000 m, p=0.35) or PF (control 9.4±0.5 cm, CWI 9.3±0.6 cm, p=0.65) at 48 h post-YIRT. There was a main time effect for CMVJ over 48 h, but no group differences (pre-YIRT 64.6±11.0 cm, post-YIRT 66.4±10.9 cm, 24 h post-YIRT 63.4±9.9 cm, 48 h post-YIRT 63.1±9.4 cm, p=0.02). This study demonstrated that in collegiate soccer players, CWI performed immediately and 24 h after induced volitional fatigue did not affect subsequent physical performance estimates.
