Does being outside in the dead of winter sound miserable? If so, you might want to consider working on your temperature tolerance. If you can handle a little cold, the winter offers quiet campgrounds in magical, snowy settings. And Wim Hof, “The Iceman,” can help you stay warm.
The 58-year-old man from The Netherlands has made a name for himself with his ability to withstand extreme cold. He attributes this to breathing exercises which enable him to “turn his own thermostat up.” He’s submerged his entire body in an ice bath for over two hours, and he summited Everest in only a pair of shorts.
Our friends at Coldpruf are experts in thriving in cold weather, so they wanted us to see this VICE documentary, in which two journalists met with Wim Hof to learn about his methods and test them out for themselves. Could the Wim Hoff breathing technique work for you, too?
