Dissecting The Wim Hof Method (Medlife Crisis)

It's getting in to the colder part of the year here (Sydney, Australia).



As it's getting in to the colder part of the year here (Sydney, Australia), last night I found myself chatting to a friend about the Wim Hof Method. If you know the name but very little of what's involved (fairly common situation, which may/may not be considered a good thing, depending on your viewpoint); this video explains it - and the medical research behind parts of it - in detail.





NB : We first looked at this one in the weekly Strength & Fitness Newsletter (part of the Strength Kit). If you'd like to have it sent to you automatically (free!) each week, just add your email here.

We also discuss a number of training-related books. If you're looking for the full list of the ones I recommend personally, swing by Goodreads. Great site.

Brilliant device. If your shoulders aren't quite as flexible as you'd like, grab The Rotater. Love it.
Already got one? Looking for something specific? Swing by the Straight to the Bar Store. It's all in there.

NB : If you'd like to write a guest post for Straight to the Bar, or if you'd like to join the team of Moderators here (I love hearing about everyone's training approaches) - get in touch. And if you've got a fitness competition or seminar coming up, add it to the calendar.

Look forward to hearing from you.
