Ben lead Chris Pearce and I through a Wim Hof session. Listen in or follow along and see what happens. It is invigorating and I promise you will enjoy. Follow the instructions below
“Every training begins with proper breathing. Sit or lie down comfortably in a relaxing environment and calm your mind. Begin to breathe consciously. Start slowly and inhale ever deeper until you are filling your lungs completely. Maintain a steady rhythm breathing in fully from your belly. On the exhales simply let the air go. Keep count and continue until you get to 30-40 breaths. After the final exhale try holding your breath for 1-3 minutes. This is the retention time. When the urge to breathe arises take one more deep breath and hold it for 10-15 seconds. This constitutes one cycle”
“this should be somewhat strenuous but never uncomfortable. If it becomes too hard or unpleasant, stop and try again later. You will get better with practice. Just stay relaxed but focused”
“Never perform the breathwork in or around any body of water, while driving or in any environment where loss of consciousness can have serious consequences”
Always consult a physician prior to engaging in any exercise or fitness routine to make sure you are healthy to do so.
