I would disagree with this since the venus return is slower. I was taught and prefer the double time off, ie. 20 on/ 40 off.

More than 20min. and the body reverses the vaso-constriction and starts vaso-dilation to prevent the threat of frostbite. This effectively increases the inflammation at an accelerated rate.
