To be in the best shape he possibly can in the final stages of the 2021 Formula 1 season, Lewis Hamilton has been doing cryotherapy with his physiotherapist and overall right-hand woman Angela Cullen.
Cryotherapy is used by athletes to help relieve and remedy pain and detrimental effects of injuries, as well as overexertion of muscles, tendons and ligaments.
Following the Turkish Grand Prix Lewis has posted a video of himself and Angela doing cryotherapy, along with a funny message.
“Monday recovery,” Lewis wrote on Instagram.
“The F1 season is intense from March till December. Training is essential, but recovery and taking care of your body is even more so.
“Angela Cullen and I are on the road together for around 280 days a year.
“Eating healthy, stretching, physio, meditation, skydiving, surfing, running, gym… oh and we race! We try to do it all and together we are the best team!
“Here’s our cryo session today…. Man, I don’t like the cold like this and I struggle every time at -100 degrees. Lol!
“I tell Angela, black people don’t do cold, we from the islands, man needs sun,” joked the seven-time champion.
Judging by his recent performances, whatever Lewis is doing seems to be working! You can watch the video of Lewis and Angela doing cryotherapy below.
