Too often we follow "conventional wisdom", when we should just listen to our bodies. Some of these same guys will return to icing, etc., because it works for them. IMO, the same goes for nutrition. Get in tune with your body, and the rest will follow. My two cents.

the short is no ice ,no nsaids.

imflamation around an injury is a good thing. the body is send it "repair team" in.

Why would you want to blunt that response with ice and nsaids?

They also talk about lymphatic system

Nice summary of the ideas presented - interesting stuff - seems logical.

 

Regarding the flushing of waste material via the lymphatic system via muscle activation. Tennis players Roy Emerson (50 years ago) and Jim Courier (20 years ago) were known to go for runs after long matches - I guess essentially helping their bodies flush waste, whether they were thinking of it that way or not. (They were both known for being extraordinarily fit!)

 

Also, high level athletes of all kinds have been getting massages as part of their post-activity recovery routine for a long time. Curious if it's generally acknowledged by trainers, PT's, etc that the benefit of massage is that it helps the lymphatic system do its job of flushing waste? Do they think of massage that way?

 

Here's an article on recovery that focuses on activating the lymphatic system...

You could also dig that mini-trampoline out of the attic...

Gary Reinl is the guy in the grey shirt and black cap in the youtube video from the thread-opening post who talked about ice impeding recovery, the lymph system, etc.
