The question to some degree remains "what is your goal?" For a world-class athlete, willingness to shorten a competitive career in an effort to be a super performer in the short run may be a valid choice.
Do you think there is bleeding in your muscles when you train? How much blood could possibly leak from a micro tear before platelets, fibrin, and other repair methods kick in?
Do you believe that lactic acid can be flushed out (wherever "out" is) faster than the body would do so naturally, and that that could ever be a good thing? I seriously question attempting to overcome the wisdom and chemistry of the body.
Most professional 100-meter runners also rely on a diet of meat, chicken, fish, and eggs, use a variety of stimulants to help them run faster, drink alcohol, and are willing to use performance-enhancing drugs as long as they don't get caught. Why should I believe they are any more correct about sitting in an ice plunge?
