jacuzzi/hot tubs after workouts

i was just wondering if it is a good idea to hop in a jacuzzi for a little while after a workout. i have heard it is good and i've also heard heat is bad after a workout (i think that was from the rhabdo crossfit journal)

I dunno about going in it straight after, but I do the cold shower/hot tub/cold shower cycle a couple of times after workouts and it feels great.

This might help. And yes, heat and rhabdo don't mix. Well, strike that - they do. Very well, in fact. Could put you in the hospital if the normal rhabdo doesn't.

Sprinters jump into an ice bath after workouts/races for recovery. That's good enough for me.
