The Man Who Defies What’s Possible
Wim Hof is known as the Ice Man. He’s done some wild things. He can hold himself in ice water for nearly two hours with an elevated body temperature. He climbed to an insane height on Mt. Everest, in shorts and no shirt. Hof ran a half-marathon, barefoot, above the Arctic Circle. He also ran a full-marathon, in the desert, without drinking any water. He let a group of scientists shoot him full of endotoxins and didn’t have an immune response. Why? Hof believes that our bodies are capable of doing extraordinary things. And he’s really curious about just how much control we have over our instincts, our thoughts, our health, and our happiness. He talks to Elise Loehnen about his breathing method and how nearly anyone can apply it to their life, even if they are not running a marathon in a desert.
