  • Wim Hof, the Iceman

    Anybody read his book, try his techniques? This guy supposedly climbed Everest in 2 days wearing shorts and sandals.

    Haven't read his book, but know a great deal about him. He is friends with Ray Cronise at Thermogenex - Fuel the Burn . Wim has somehow tapped his inner self to control his metabolism and withstand extremes in temperature. I live in Alaska, so have ample cold to play with. I have been spending a lot of time outdoors wearing only shorts and tshirt down to -10 for extended times, it really gets your metabolism going! Cold showers and cold swims do even better, I hear.

      Can't experiment too much in Southern California, except the ocean temps are pretty cold right now. Might have to do some surfing soon!

        Visit the link I just posted and sign up to read his blogs. You don't need cold weather, cool water is best, anything under 80 deg or so.
