Experimental: Brief Cooling (Quick Icing)
Group receiving the application of cold on the ventral side of the dominant forearm for 30 seconds, using the technique of ice beakers dynamically.
Procedure: Brief Cooling
Brief Application of cold, for a period of up to 30 seconds on a body surface which seeks to promote the activation of the nervous system to produce increased excitability.
Other Name: Quick Icing
Active Comparator: Prolonged Cold
Group receiving the intervention of "ice bag" for a period of 5 and a half minutes from 1 minute, on the ventral side of the dominant forearm
Procedure: Prolonged Cold
Prolonged application of cold, for at least 5 minutes or more, on a body surface that aims to reduce nervous system activation by reducing the NCV.
Sham Comparator: Control
Group receives a placebo application through an "ice bag" empty. The bag will be applied from 1 minute to 6 and a half minutes, as the group of prolonged cold
Procedure: Sham Ice Bag
Placebo application through an "ice bag" empty.
- Comparing maximum grip strength pre and post application of cold. [ Time Frame: Baseline and 2 hours later (1 session of treatment) ]Force in kilograms evaluated through manual dynamometry test the time for a grip.
