Football Training Equipment – Ice Baths for Recovery

With football season underway, it is vitally important that clubs ensure adequate recovery is undertaken by their players. This is important more so this year, in what is an overly congested season, thanks to the pandemic. As a result of a busy 2020-2021 season, recovery will be of vital importance between games, as well as, training. So, in addition to the usual football training equipment that is essential for a great season, so too is football recovery equipment. 

Football training equipment should focus on recovery

It seems that most clubs are facing the prospect of playing matches at weekends and mid-week for most of the season. Consequently, this will result in very little essential recovery time in-between. Some clubs will even be subjected to playing up to 3 games within a weekly microcycle. This compact season, coupled with reverting back to the 3-subs per game rule (although this has recently reverted back to 5 subs in the EFL), results in an increase in performance workload demand on players. And without careful monitoring and adequate recovery, the chances of injury due to fatigue will increase significantly. Even FiFPro voice their concerns about player overload.

Recovery solutions for football players

Cold Water Immersion (CWI) is a well established recovery strategy. And CET CryoSpas’ CWI solutions, available in the UK exclusively through HaB Direct, provide an extensive range of recovery ice bath products to suit all budgets and requirements.

Football clubs use CET CryoSpa ice baths for recovery

CET CryoSpa ice baths are already in use at some of the biggest football clubs in England, Scotland, Wales, and around the world. The reason they all choose CryoSpa for their ice bath recovery is because of the high quality build, superior filtration levels and excellent reliability. Clubs and institutes that include ice bath recovery as part of their training equipment include:

  • Wembley
  • AC Milan
  • Manchester United
  • Manchester City FC
  • Team GB (London 2012)
  • The English Institute of Sport
  • Wimbledon

CET CryoSpa infection control

In 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, CET CryoSpas took the safety of users one step further, by introducing UV Sanitisation. Now, this is fitted to all CryoSpa Sport, Team CryoSpa and Constrast SpaDuo systems as standard.

Not only do CET CryoSpa ice baths now include UV sanitisation for extra peace of mind, but they also have up to 100sq feet of filtration. Their filtration system keeps the water clear and the high salt water concentrations aid recovery, as well as, infection control. No other supplier matches these high-standards.

CET CryoSpas offer 4 treatment modalities

These modalities are:

  • Temperature (chilling down to 1˚C)
  • Turbulence (massage jets create water disturbance)
  • Hydrostatic Pressure (the depth of the water creates hydrostatic pressure)
  • Salination (salt water has both infection control and healing properties)
