I have read here hot water helps increase the muscle size.In case we do a hot bath and after we do a workout.First, "hot" how much should it be?Shouldn't my self tolerate it or just relaxing hot?Second, how much time after bath should I do a workout for more gains? Example,I am doing after twenty minutes workout from my bath.I want answer to focused only to hot water not nutritients etc.Thanks
I would add this as a comment but I am not allowed to comment yet.
I have never heard about hot water being responsible for increased muscle gains. However, taking a hot bath can definitely have positive effects for post-workout muscle relaxation and active recovery.
Taking a cold shower after training, on the other hand, can have slightly positive effects on muscle growth because the cold will increase blood circulation and thus improve nutrient supply to your (muscle) cells. In addition, a cool bath will reduce possible swellings as well as tissue breakdown.
