One of the most decorated mixed martial artists in the sport’s history, Georges St-Pierre, commonly referred to as GSP, was once arguably considered the pound-for-pound greatest fighter on the planet. After ruling over the UFC’s welterweight division for several years, GSP took some time off from active competition.
He would return years later to challenge then-UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping for the title. In an entertaining showdown with the brash UK native, GSP would score an impressive third round submission victory.
Since officially retiring from MMA competition, Georges St-Pierre has moved on to acting. Appearing in a number of Marvel projects, including Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Falcon and The Winter Soldier, GSP has established himself as an actor who can both recite his lines as well as do the more physically demanding roles.
GSP Testosterone Secrets
Now in his early 40s, Georges St-Pierre still possesses an incredible physique. The former two-division UFC champion has been able to maintain his ripped fighting form even in retirement. The MMA star says consistency is key.
“I try to work out pretty much every day,” he says. “I don’t work out hard every day, but I try to do, like I said, a little a lot, rather than a lot a little. Consistency is key.”
But there’s more to maintaining his physique than just getting in the gym day after day. Testosterone is a thing after all and with GSP in his 40s, that means the hormone is decreasing year after year. But there are ways to not only stave off the effects of hormone change but actually boost testosterone levels.
So what’s his secret? It appears that GSP has found the fountain of youth and yes the solution does involve actual water.
Every morning GSP takes a cold plunge which boosts his testosterone.
“I love my ice bath too. It gives me a good rush of adrenaline and helps boost testosterone,” said St-Pierre. “When I do it first thing in the morning it helps me through the day. If I want to enhance my quality of sleep, I take an ice bath just before bed. I mix hot and cold therapy. So I go ice bath, jacuzzi, ice bath, jacuzzi.”
Benefits of Cold Plunge
There are many benefits to doing a cold plunge. Submerging yourself in an ice bath can have anti-inflammatory relief, increases positive immune response, and parasympathetic nervous system stimulation. With so many proven benefits from taking the cold plunge, products like the Ice Barrel have become an invaluable tool for athletes and the average person who does intensive exercise and training.
According to the science, cold therapy has also shown incredible benefits in reducing stress, anxiety, and depression symptoms.
