You’d be forgiven for thinking Derek Hough’s Instagram post was a teaser for a new sci-fi epic. You’d also be forgiven for looking at his abs.

The Dancing with the Stars pro posted a shirtless solo shot of himself emerging from a cryotherapy chamber, in which patients endure temperatures of -180 degrees or even lower for brief periods of time.

Though Hough did not specify why he was partaking in the most extreme of chills, the procedure can be used to treat a wide range of afflictions, including joint pain, muscle pain and stress.

“Just finished Cryo therapy, now off to the airport to catch a red eye back to the city that never sleeps,” he wrote. “Fitting, seeing as I don’t sleep either.

Hough isn’t the only celebrity to step into a cryotherapy chamber recently, either. Over the weekend, Lindsay Lohan posted on Instagram about celebrating Easter by “freezing our way into spring chickens.”
