Wim Hof got his nickname “The Iceman” by breaking a number of records related to cold exposure. His feats include climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in shorts, running a half marathon above the Arctic Circle on his bare feet, and standing in a container while covered with ice cubes for more than 112 minutes.
Having embraced the majestic force of nature, Wim resolved to share his discovery with the rest of the world. He is convinced that everyone can tap into this potential without having to invest the same decades worth of study, travel and daring. And so he developed the Wim Hof Method: a natural path to an optimal state of body and mind.
The wait is finally over. After all the video teasing you get to finally see the King Dean Blundell dip himself in an ice bath.
Before we get started a little background on this video. Our friend Ashley Orr from Hello Cannabis runs Wim Hof classes which focus on controlling your breathing and controlling your mind. If you listen to the podcast or read anything Dean posts he is a strong advocate for healthy living and meditation. When Ashley brought up the idea to do the Wim Hof Method on a rooftop in Hamilton it was very hard to say no.
A few highlights from the video.
- Dean dips himself in an ice bath.
- Dark Web Brad and Danny Dwos decide to do the ice bath together.
- Dean reaches enlightenment.
I can’t spoil anymore. Just watch the video. It’s classic.
