"The secret of your success is determined by your daily agenda "
-John C. Maxwell

The last couple of days I was doing well. I have set new goals. I was training and of course breathing and taking cold showers.
And finally I was able to pass the 2 minute mark.

I am pretty happy about that and now I will set my eyes on the 3 minutes mark but this will take a while.

But I am almost happier to reached 70 push ups. Which I was never able to do before.

Round 1 : 1min 22.74sec
Round 2 : 1min 36.36sec
Round 3 : 1min 51.77sec
Round 4 : 2min 03.25sec
70 push-ups

For new readers I want to explain what I am actually doing here: The Wim Hof Method consists of 3 pillars

  • breathing : you breathe in very deeply and exhale. But you dont exhale all the air so you kind of "charge" yourself. You do 30-40 breathe cycles and then exhale all the air out in your lunge and withhold your breath as long as possible.

  • cold exposure: you start taking showers or jump into an ice bath and the lenght is increasing as you progress through the course

  • some physical excercise : mostly some Yoga but also push-ups. What is special about the push-ups is, that you do one breahting round before them and also exhale, so you do the push ups with an empty lung.

Es hat eine Weile gedauert aber endlich habe ich es geschafft 2 Minuten die Luft anzuhalten, was mich sehr sehr freut.
Ich hoffe ich schaffe das jetzt öfter und irgendwann sind es 3 Minuten.

Noch mehr freut es mich allerdings, dass ich 70 Liegestütze geschafft habe, was ich weder mit Luft in den Lungen oder normalen Atem geschafft habe.

Die 10 Minuten Dusche ist allerdings immer noch sehr schwer und heute musste ich nach 8 Minuten raus, obowhl es eigentlich nicht so kalt war.

Runde 1 : 1min 22.74sek
Runde 2 : 1min 36.36sek
Runde 3 : 1min 51.77sek
Runde 4 : 2min 03.25sek
70 Liegestütze

Für neue Leser möchte ich kurz zusammenfassen um was es hier überhaupt geht: Die Wim Hof Methode setzt sich aus 3 Pfeilern zusammen.

  • Atmung : Man atmet tief ein aber nicht ganz wieder aus. So "lädt man sich auf". Dies macht man 30-40 Atemrunden. Bei der letzten atmet man alles aus und hält die Luft solange wie möglich an, also auf leere Lunge.

  • Kälte : Man fängt an mit kurzen kalten Duschen ( 30 Sekunden). Die Zeit verlängert sich je weiter man im Kurs schreitet.

  • Sport : Vor allem sind es ein paar Yoga-Übungen und Liegestütze. Bei den Liegestützen ist anzumerken, das man davor auch eine Runde der Atemübungen macht und die Liegstütze auf leere Lunge durchführt.

Great goals for improving health. Everybody says this is most important aspect of life, but they do not do anything about it.

I used to be like this also but changing my ways the last couple of months.

Might need to give this Wim Hof method a go, the cold showers sound pretty hellish though!

it is a mixed experience.

you feel great afterwards but during the shower...not always but it is getting easier but 10 minutes is still hard for me.

I enjoy the breathing way more though. But overall it is a great experience.

Give it a try the worst you have to loose is a bit of time. There are some tutorials on youtube about the breathing.

This very valuable information. I have been trying to figure out new methods to increase my stamina.
I'm gonna try this as well.


Let me know how it goes or if I can be of any help.
