Anyone know about this guy? Been working on his breathing exercises for a few days now, and I'm sold 100%. It's legit.

It's pretty impressive stuff once you get it mastered, from what I've seen. I'm not that dedicated. But do like a good chuckle at others expense smile

It works. You're blowing off all of your CO2 and saturating your blood with o2 (oxygen). This gets you high as well as altering many other biological functions. He has single handedly changed what doctors and scientist have thought was possible with the human body/brain.

I've done cryotherapy (-250 degrees), buried myself in snow for extended periods of time and take cold showers every so often. The cold therapy hardens the body and builds brown adipose tissue. Dr. Rhonda Patrick has been doing a lot of research into the benefits of hot and cold therapies.

You can find podcast he has done with Joe Rogan and Tim Ferris among others.

Huck, I heard of him on Joe Rogan's podcast, too.

Sneaky, if you google "Wim Hof Method" there's a ton of good info out there. I'll see if I can find the exact podcast episode when he was a guest on Rogan's show - definitely worth listening to IMO.

Thought I'd share an update. It's been a little more than a month since I started doing these breathing exercises. I've also been incorporating meditation and cold rinses at the end of hot showers.

According to my Fitbit, my resting heart rate has decreased significantly over this same timespan. (It traditionally averages in the low 60s). I've been sleeping better and generally have a more positive mood, too.

I've been taking cold showers ever since I saw this post around two weeks ago. Don't know if it's helping anything and to be honest I haven't read enough about it to know what it should do.

Might start the breathing exercises soon

Wow this is amazing!! It's one thing to know you "feel" better but that's not very subjective. You have measurable scientific proof that this is making you healthier.

MeanGreen,

I tried the cold rinse at the end this morning, wowsers. How long do you usually do the cold rinse.

I don't even bother with a finish cold rinse. Just jump in that biotch with it as cold as it'll go.
