No Ice?

CrossFit is sort of known for breaking the rules of conventional exercise and fitness.  We don’t use weight machines, we have barbells.  We’re not about isolating muscles groups, but instead we work movements.  All of our members, men and women, young and old, lift heavy weights.  Our workouts are short, hard, and intense, and not endless hours of ‘cardio’.  CrossFit is unconventional, and we let the results speak for themselves.

So what are your thoughts on NOT using ice to reduce swelling on an injury?  CrossFit Mobility guru Kelly Starrett had a recent post on this topic.

People, We’ve Got to Stop Icing.  We Were Wrong, so Wrong

What are your thoughts?  Does this flip your world, or is it a bit much?
