This study was conducted to investigate the effect of cold water immersion on some
performance parameters. The study consisted of 19 male badminton athletes, 10 of
whom were experimental and 9 of whom were control groups. All athletes who
participated in the study were given a pre-exercise agility test and a 30 m speed test.
Afterwards, the muscle injury exercise protocol consisting of depth jumps was applied
to the athletes and then, cold water immersion was applied to the test group for 10
minutes at 15°C. Field tests were repeated 24 hours after cold water immersion (24h).
Athletes in the control group participated in all measurements except cold water
immersion. Significant differences were found between control and experimental group
at 24h 30 m and agility tests showed significant difference between experimental and
control groups (p <0.05). As a result, it was concluded that due to the shorter recovery
times, the performance of athletes exposed cold water immersion is better.
