"Doing more exercise with less intensity,"
Arthur Jones believes, "has all but
destroyed the actual great value
of weight training. Something
must be done . . . and quickly."
The New Bodybuilding for
Old-School Results supplies
MUCH of that "something."

Have read quite a bit of material on / by The Ice Man, Wim Hoff. He is a big believer in regular exposure to cold and there are some fascinating possibilities, Hoffman himself has many world records and has been able to boost his immune system at will, in scientific tests, what I found interesting was the concept of brown fat, which burns white fat as energy to keep us warm, how exposure to cold regularly can increase levels of this brown fat... Look, it is late and I am being a bit half arsed with all this, but look it up, it's pretty cool.

I think I remember something about him. He'd swim under ice a while and would pop up like he was in a regular pool. I think if you can handle the cold immersions it just might improve your immune system? If nothing else it makes you less susceptible to getting cold when it's cold outside. My wife is Norwegian and she often talks of these big Norwegian guys who regularly walk around barefoot on a freezing boat and think nothing of it.

I'm decent with the cold to a point. I'm regularly outside for scheduled periods of time, but not all day. I was watching some guys roof a house down the street from me and thinking wow its got to be cold to be out there all day doing that day after day. I'll do a long run and walk my dogs, but thats only for a period of time. It gets bloody hot here in the summer too.

So my pool has been frozen over about 3 inches thick. With the warming spell we had it started to melt a little around the edges and I punched my hand through it. Boy was it cold. I didn't have the nerve to jump in.
