PURPOSE: To investigate the effects of post exercise cold water immersion (CWI) on tissue oxygenation and blood volume changes following intense exercise. METHODS: Nine physically active males performed 30 min of continuous running (CR) at 70% of their maximal treadmill velocity (Vmax), followed by 10 bouts of intermittent running (INT) at Vmax. Following exercise, one of the participants' leg was immersed in a cold water bath (10°C; CWI) to the level of their gluteal fold for 15 min. The contra-lateral leg remained outside the water bath and served as a control (CON). Vastus lateralis (VL) skin temperature (TskVL), VL oxygenation (tissue oxygenation index, TOI) and blood volume changes (total hemoglobin volume, tHb) were monitored continuously throughout exercise and CWI using near infrared spectroscopy. RESULTS: TskVL, TOI and tHb were not significantly different between CON and CWI during CR and INT respectively (p>0.05). In contrast, TskVL was significantly lower in CWI compared to CON throughout immersion with peak differences occurring at the end of immersion (CON: 35.1 ± 0.6 vs CWI: 16.9 ± 1.7°C, p<0.001). tHb was significantly lower during CWI compared with CON at most time points, with peak differences of 20 ± 4% evident at the end of the 15 min immersion (p<0.01). Likewise, TOI was significantly higher in CWI, compared with CON, with peak differences of 2.5 ± 1% evident at the 12 min of immersion (p<0.05). CONCLUSIONS: Post exercise cooling decreased microvascular perfusion and muscle metabolic activity. These findings are consistent with the suggested mechanisms by which CWI is hypothesized to improve local muscle recovery.
