    Well, anytime using cryotherapy, you vasoconstict on the surface and vasodilate in the deeper tissue. Heat does the opposite. By this constant constriction and dilation of vessels, you get a fairly rapid dispersal of waste materials that hinder recovery. This steepens the recovery curve. Other than feeling refreshed, I can't really elucidate as to why end on cold. Perhaps other members might have some input?

    As far as contrast training goes I always thought that you wanted to end on cold because your body is going to naturally open up the blood vessels again after you get out of the cold. Therefore, you get the benefit of one more 'cycle' of hot cold than you would have if you ended on heat. Thoughts anyone?

    Sounds plausible. Certainly leaves you feeling refreshed
