48 min – basically a little body hack to get more energy
49 min – science backed up by rhonda patrick (@foundmyfitness) – on cold therapy
50 min – no shivering just means i’m used to it by now and i’m using fat rather than using shivering .. and i can also produce heat from breathing exercises from the inside out
53 min – you feel like you shed like 7 yrs of your life

From the article:
“”“Swimming is the only activity that the human can indulge in that is gravity free,” he says. “You realise gravity incessantly is putting a strain on us. You can’t escape gravity even if you’re sitting down – you’re probably in a bad posture and your muscles and ligaments are aching because of it – but swimming gives you that opportunity.””
99 yr old breaking records:
Swimming is something he does in private. It lets him exercise without pain. He only ever competes alone, and he is happy if his record encourages other masters-level swimmers to join him.
In many ways, he swims for himself, and lays down records for others.
“In the water you’re weightless. While you’re there, you can use all the muscles in your body, your sinews and elastic tissues, without that extra weight that’s on you. In the water it’s just yourself and no weight at all.”
He will go back to swimming three laps a week, sleeping well and eating a boiled egg for breakfast.

sept 2018 – how cold water swim could treat depression
- The treatment is based on cross-adaptation, a phenomenon where individuals become less sensitive to a stimulus after being exposed to another.
- Getting used to the shock of cold-water swimming could blunt your body’s sensitivity to other stressors.
“Underwater, I feel an intense mixture of burning pain and, even after doing this for years, a little panic. But it’s the only time the anxious negative chatter in my head is truly silenced. After two minutes, as my skin reaches the same temperature as the water, I start to feel comfortable and my breathing slows. After even a brief swim, I feel elated for hours and calm for days.”
