Ice baths are a great way to recover from grueling workouts. Just know that this is no walk in the park. Sometimes it is as painful as the workout itself. Unfortunately a cold shower will not do the trick. Typically the water should be in the range of 55 degrees F. About 8-10 minutes should do the trick. I do suggest having someone close by for safety reasons until you are sure your body can handle the temperature. It is not uncommon for people to pass out from the temp change.
