20 Day Cold Shower Challenge! Why?
If you choose to watch the above video heads up there are a few not safe for work words in it that might technically put it at a pg-13 rating.
I stumbeled on some videos of "The Iceman" Wim Hof, and his amazing physical feats.
Acccording to www.icemanwimhof.com Wim currently holds 21 Guinness World Records and a laundry list of super-human awesomenes like:
- Ran 1/2 a marathon barefoot above the Arctic cirlce wearing only shorts
- Ran a full marathon in Namib desert without water consumption.
- Officialy swam under ice for 66 meters, unofficially swam under ice for 120 meters with one breathe
- Hanging on one finger at an altitude of 2000 meters
- Staying in blocks of ice for hours
"What I am capable of, everybody can learn"
When you first hear Wim Hof's story, and see how he came across his method by pulling himself out of a dark place of grief years ago, it will leave you inspired. His encouragement to fully live life, and see what each of us are truely capable of, makes it's hard not to sign up for the course.
"We Can Do More Than We Think We Can"
That quote is plastered all over his websites, and used all over in his teachings.
I've always been interested in different, and maybe unconventional methods other people have found or practice to enhance their lives.
I'm not afraid to die....I'm afraid not to live fully
Now there are plenty of wacko's out there selling imaginary products and practices so you have to run it all through a reality filter, and not buy everything everyone is selling. But everything I've watched and read on Wim and his method appear legit.
The Cold Is My Warm Friend-INNERFIRE
In the documentary on Wim done by VICE, Wim simply says his mission is: LOVE
Cold immersion, Breathing, and Mental Focus. Sing me up.
There are disclaimers on how to do this course safely, so if you choose to hop on board make sure you follow the instructions.
Wim offers a free 3-Part Video Course you can get them sent to your email by clicking here. This is the class I am going to start my INNERFIRE/Wimhofmethod, and see where it goes from there.
