The Extramilest Podcast

Dec 18, 2018

"We are able to perform so much better if we are connected to the debt of the bio-chemistry" - Wim Hof

Today’s guest is the legendary "Iceman", Wim Hof. He has accomplished a number of extraordinary achievements, including 26 Guinness World Records. He has trained a lot to control his breathing, heart rate and blood circulation and he can withstand extreme cold and hot temperatures. 

He has trained others to achieve the same effect, with minimal training. He teaches his Wim Hof Method to people all over the world, to control their bodies and achieve extraordinary things. This method consists of 3 pillars: Cold Exposure, Breathing Techniques and Mindset.

I have been using his approach with cold showers, ice baths, deep breathing and visualization for several years now and have noticed significant benefits. 

In today’s episode we dive into many topics:

  • How can athletes improve their training and racing with the Wim Hof Method?
  • How to overcome big challenges, both physically and mentally?
  • How to override discomfort in different areas of your life.
  • Ways to improve your connection between your body and mind? 
  • Importance of self talk and visualization 
  • Getting blood flow to deeper parts of the brain
  • And much more!
