Wim Hof! Is amazing.
In terms of his charisma, and some of the things he teaches/has discovered.
He demonstrates his breathing technique with Joe.
Wim Hof Breathing Technique
This involves breathing in, as deeply as possible, and breathing out-but just letting go
So you breathe in, more than you breathe out.
Warning – do this lying down or sitting as you can pass out or at least get light-headed
After 30 breaths, hold your breath for as long as possible. Then after you breathe out, breathe in once more and hold for ten seconds.
You have just done 1 round!
Complete for 3 if possible
The aim of the breathing is to oxygenate the blood, and increase pH.
The ‘Wim Hof Technique’- involves cold-therapy.
I believe the process/course looks like this:
week 1 – 30 second cold showers at the end of a normal shower
week 2 – 30 seconds cold at the start, and then at the end
Week 3 – 1 minute at the start and at the end
Week 4 – 5 minutes
Week 5 – 7 minutes cold shower
Week 6 – 10 minutes
To get the exact specifications, you need to sign up for Wim’s course. Unfortunately. Guy’s gotta make a living tho.
There’s a good week by week diary here though – http://www.timvandervliet.com/wim-hof-method-week-5-recap-week-4/
I’ve been doing cold showers and breathing techniques every morning now.
I’ve also starting drinking a small amount of baking soda in water to further alkalise the body.
There’s a tonic you can make with Apple Cider Vinegar and a pinch of baking soda here.
- A glass of warm or hot water, because cold water could be harmful to the liver.
- A tablespoon of apple cider vinegar.
- A pinch of baking soda
