It seems that two sporting shibboleths have been slain. Cold Water Immersion and Stretching:

Dr Shane Brun, an associate professor of musculoskeletal and sports medicine at James Cook University: “There’s not a lot of evidence so far that cold water immersion does a lot for physical benefits of people using it.” And even then he was only just warming up!

Dr Brun again: “The physical evidence suggests stretching does not do much to help the body recover … “

My idea of warming up is a couple of mags down range to take the chill off.
