Why correct breathing is important ?

 How many times during a day do you think about breathing? The answer is well, not a lot of times. To achieve better results with our workouts, improve our health or maybe calm our mind and body, breathing is a powerful tool. Wim teaches to breathe faster and deeper, the goal is to full our bodies with oxygen to create more energy for our purpose, whatever that may be.

1. Phase of training- Breathe like a GOD

30 Intense breaths 

 The easiest way is to imagine blowing a balloon, well 30 balloons . Inhale deeply trough your nose and exhale trough your mouth.  Exhalation should be short and not as deep as inhalation. Repeat this process 30 times. Gradually you will create your own rhythm which is good to follow. While breathing, it is normal to feel a bit dizzy sometimes or to feel a little bit of tingling in your fingers, just stay calm and enjoy those feelings. Always practice with moderation, the goal of your training is not to fall unconscious but to learn how to breath properly. Find a safe and comfortable spot and begin…

Hold your breath

  After 30 intense breaths it is time to hold your breath.  Imagine you have to fill your lungs as much as  you can, then slowly release and stop breathing. Try to calm yourself, you are doing it, you are not breathing! When you feel the urge to breathe again, just breathe in.  You will get better and better over time, it is a very rewarding system.

Relax

  As with any relaxation exercise, you simply take a deep breath, spread your arms, fill your lungs with air and  hold your breath for approximately 10 seconds.  Then exhale and rest for a while.

Just Relax. Congratulations! You have completed the first round of exercise.

After the exercise, you will have a blissful feeling that many Buddhist monks would envy you for. Only after mastering the first important phase, which is breathing,  you can move on further in your training . Once you  have trained this exercise , another important step awaits you, which is facing the cold shower.

                                                         2. Training phase – Harden like a polar bear 

                                                                                     Cold hardening

Hardening is a great choice to strengthen the immune system, elevate your body and soul. You will overcome your own limits and learn how to regulate the temperature within your body. Wim advises to approach hardening slowly and with respect. You own body will show you the way, you just need to listen. Embrace the cold in your life as a source of energy  for strengthening your own body and will.

 

HOW TO START ?

  The easy way to start is at home, in your shower.  While taking a classic shower with the regular temperature , try to decrease the temperature to cold just for the last 20- 30 seconds .  Start from the bottom up, that means from the feet to the top of your head. Remember the first thing you learned, BREATHE ! Breathe heavilly, do not stress, close your eyes and enjoy the Cold. If this is hard for you, try to limit the time to 20 seconds and do not shower your head.

At first this process is though and a little shock is normal because you are not used to cold water, your nervous system does not react normally.  Just remember it is not a 100 meter run but rather a Marathon.

 

Practice makes a Master

  Ice bathing is one of the skills you master trough training. While exposed to the cold,  muscles around your blood vessels become automatically tighter. Train in the shower every single day. According to Wim you will be strong after just 2 weeks. At the beginning of course, go easy on yourself and dont overdo it.  Your blood vessels will thank you for it and your hearth as well.

There will come a day, when you will swim in the cold lakes with Ice bears and feel like an natural.
