Strong Hands (feat. Wim Hof)



This breath is practiced standing and will stimulate circulation of blood flow to the limbs. This helps with cold hands and feet in particular! Twisting breath may be a good technique to perform before hitting the slopes, heading out for an early morning run, or going for a winter surf session.




Strong Hands (feat. Wim Hof)



Many practitioners of the method, fresh and seasoned alike, struggle with cold hands or feet. Many non-practitioners, too. Actually many practitioners started to improve that hand/foot situation.


The final part of the ascent leads over an exposed ridge. Half way up that ridge, the weather changed. The wind took up. The windchill decreased to -30 degrees C. And with it, the storm brought frozen rain. The rain covered everything. The stones, the rails that gave us support. The spikes under our boots started to fail. Our feet slipped on the stones, and our hands slipped on the frozen rails. And with the slipping feet our focus started to slip.


The cold is always stronger. It does not differentiate between a Wim Hof Instructor, a practitioner or any person in the world. Even Wim Hof himself had some close calls. The cold always wins.Nature always wins.


This is the lesson I have been teaching in my classes in the last 3 years to hundreds people from a dozen countries. And I hope I have made every single one a happier, stronger and healthier person.


I had just moved to a new city in a new country. I was in multitasking hell in my job, where I was juggling a plethora of technical projects in addition to managing a team of Data Scientists and helping a startup grow to maturity. In addition, I was suffering from frequent and heavy cold and flu, a condition I have been struggling with for the better part of my adult life. In 2017, my sick leave accumulated to a level that was not acceptable to neither me nor my boss.


When there is snow outside, I go for daily barefoot walks in my garden for about 10-15 minutes. If snow is not available, every second day I do hand and feet immersions in an ice bucket (very important for cyclists!). I try to stay submerged for at least 2 minutes. The 2-minute rule is also important for the ice bath. On average, it is the right time for your body to react to the cold and get stronger (2 minutes in water below 5C equals to 40 minutes of running in terms of energy consumed by your body!).


So, thanks to this I became friends with the cold. I enjoy training in winter much more now. Maybe my body is just a little bit stronger than when I started but for sure my mind has made a giant leap toward acceptance of cold. I know that what I see is only the tip of the iceberg and I am looking forward to experiencing what prolonged use of the technique will bring.


This video has the only purpose to inspire people. It is based on my physical conditions and perceptions. I strongly recommend to sign up for an official WHM workshop or do an online one. Also, have a talk with your Doc before jumping in ice water.


My goal is to qualify for the Olympic Games in Rio 2016. I am using the Wim Hof Method to perform better and recover faster during my runs in the (cold) water. Thank you for this powerful method Wim.


Hello, my name is Albert. For 12 years now I have rheumatism. Before I started the video course I already took cold showers as a result of a workshop by Wim. Thanks to that I've been able of halving the amount of anti-inflammatory drugs. In addition I use curcumin for support. My goal is to completely stop the amount of those anti-inflammatorydrugs after finishing the video course. And then also phasing out the use of curcumin. Good luck to you all.


I am 52 years old guy and the sport has not have important part in my life. I can confirm after the 10 weeks of WHM I am in the best shape I have ever been. I did 30 correct pushup as a test before I started the course. When I finished this course I did the first time in my life 100 correct pushups and I did it without breathing after inhalation. WHM gives you a good mood. It can make you addicted! You can do your 10 weeks of this training and then stop! The first 3 day you are happy, it is finally over. But on the 4-th day you will feel something is missing and you will go on. : -)


In my life there were several milestones; changing my eat / live pattern was a very important one. Having an atlas correction was also a big step in my life. And the most recent one was joining your online course after being made enthusiastic during your lecture. What I saw there was a man with so much energy and so convincing in using the power of your body, that I could not wait starting to learn all of this! Although for a long time you was not taken serious, you kept believing in what you are doing and now you receive the reward you deserve! Thank you for your persistency and sharing your method with all of us!You and your team are doing a great job!


I have been a percussionist for the past twenty seven years. I presently accompany dance classes at Elon University using only hand drums such as jembe, congas, doumbek, udu, surdo, and tabla. About ten years ago my hands began to feel arthritic and painful, regularly making it difficult to sleep. I am turning sixty in May and figured that I would be living with this problem the rest of my life. After finding out about the Wim Hof Method, I decided to try cold showers and ice baths baths for my hands and feet. I am relieved to let you know that my hands been pain free for the past week. This is absolutely astonishing to me as I played drums for thirty one hours last week. I am also sleeping better. Many,many thanks.Peace


My name is Ryan Burke and I have been practicing Massage Therapy since 2006. A large part of my philosophy of massage is simply getting an individual to have their consciousness evenly distributed throughout the flesh. From that, I tell them to do whatever they would like to get their mind in their body. The WHM is an entirely new way of getting my consciousness within my own flesh. Never have I experienced the realm of the autonomic nervous system in this way and it has been incredible! Wim has genuine intentions and provides surprising results for such a simple and short course. Among increased flexibility, better breathing, and cold endurance; this method has given me the assurability to be able to enter seemingly impossible situations and be alright! It has helped me "get into the cold" of other situations in life. I can't say enough good things about this course! Try it out if you are considering!

He explained that some people might get dizzy or lightheaded, so it was a good idea to practice the method lying down.Other side effects can include cramping or tingling of the hands or feet, and all the side effects can be relieved by slowing down the breathing. He also encouraged participants to push themselves a little during the breath holding phase, exhaling a little bit or swallowing, which helps prolong the retention.


Cold immersion has a similar resetting effect on the nervous system, Stewart said. For the last part of the workshop, participants changed into swimsuits, grabbed their towels, and then, coming out onto the terrace in twos and threes, lowered themselves into a seated position into an ice water tub, folding their hands in a prayer position as recommended by Stewart. (He had also suggested blowing on their hands.)


With the biggest hands in the National Basketball Association (NBA), Boban Marjanovic is a powerful force with a basketball. His hands are 10.75 inches long and 12 inches wide. Standing at 7 feet and 3.5 inches, Marjanovic is also one of the tallest players in the NBA.


In 2016, she also became the first US athlete to snag a weightlifting Olympic medal since 1994. Robles lifted a total of 626 pounds in the snatch and the clean and jerk, earning a bronze medal. Many fans call her the strongest woman in America.

The observed potentiating effects on anti-inflammatory IL-10 production as well as the attenuation of proinflammatory cytokine levels are in agreement with a previously performed study, where epinephrine was i.v. administered before LPS in healthy volunteers and resulted in early and increased IL-10 production (7), and with studies showing that pretreatment with IL-10 results in attenuation of the proinflammatory response in healthy volunteers (15, 16). In the training group, strong inverse correlations between IL-10 levels at an early time point and later-occurring peak levels of the proinflammatory mediators were found, whereas in the control group the opposite was found: positive correlations between preceding levels of proinflammatory mediators with the later-occurring peak levels of IL-10. These findings indicate that the proinflammatory response drives IL-10 production in the control group, whereas the epinephrine-induced early increase in IL-10 production inhibits proinflammation in the trained group. The early increases in lymphocytes and subsequent higher concentrations of circulating neutrophils in the training group compared with the control group can also be attributed to the elevated epinephrine levels found in trained individuals, as catecholamines induce leukocytosis characterized by an initial lymphocytosis followed by an increase of other subpopulations (17). Furthermore, similar changes in leukocyte counts were previously observed during voluntary hyperventilation (18). Our study is limited by the fact that we did not measure specific leukocyte subtypes such as CD3, CD4, and CD8 numbers as well as B cells, dendritic cells, and natural killer (NK) cells, some of which have been shown to be specifically altered by catecholamines and/or stress (19, 20). 041b061a72
