The hosts then asked Burrow about what is like a day in his life during the offseason like? The Bengals superstar replies, “I’m working out in the morning. 10 to 12 usually, and then, cold tub. After that, I’m playing some video games for the most part. And relax and not do much.” 

The other host, Bob Menery, asks Burrow, “What’s the point of the cold tub there? What does everybody do that? What is a cold tub?” Burrow explains, “A lot of health benefits.” He adds, “Increases metabolic rate, increases blood flow, recovery, and all that good stuff.” Burrow, later on, reveals that he sits in the cold water for at least 10 minutes every day after an intense workout. The gym does not build bodies. They are made in the kitchen and by proper recovery. The importance of recovery is equal to that of the workout. And Burrow seems to be doing it right.
