i was wondering if it is better to get in a hottub or get in a pool or if it doesnt really matter after a workout. hottub applying heat vs. a pool cooling your body down after the work out? does it really matter or is one better than another?

Apparently alternating hot/cold shower is the best. But I love just soaking in a hot tub, works for me.

If your thoughts are to remove lactic acid build-up from the workout, hot tub to promote circulation. If you are looking for light cardio/stretching, use the pool. If both are available, use both.
