“I do not fear death, I fear not to live fully.”
If you haven’t heard of Iceman Wim Hof yet, prepare to have your world rocked.
Hof is coined ‘Iceman’ due to his miraculous ability to withstand the cold — well beyond the laws of biology. Using meditation, he has stayed submerged in ice for 1 hour and 53 minutes without his core body temperature changing.
He’s climbed Mount Everest in his shorts, defied altitude sickness, ran a marathon in the Namib Desert without water, and proven under a laboratory setting that he can control his autonomic nervous and immune systems.
He is definitively a superhuman. But Hof says he isn’t a freak of nature, and that with the right training, anyone can achieve what he has.
“I am absolutely not the first one who is able to do this, but I am the first one to bring it to science, and to take away the speculation around it.”
In fact, a group of Hof’s students took the same laboratory test he did and proved the same incredible control over their nervous and immune systems. Film narrator, Matt Shea, who undergoes some of his teachings, comments:
“It was like I was going through some kind of second puberty, where instead of becoming an adult, I was becoming a superhuman.”
Watch this fascinating interview and learn about his methods for achieving these feats, and how people like you and me can be superhumans, too.
