OK lets cut the bull*** posted on this thread.
This man has been tested by several doctors when he ran an marathon in shorts an dbarefoot in -20C. He did not train for the Marathon beforehand. He
made most of the way but had to walk the last 1-2km with the help of his son who egged him on, however what made me smile was that the first thing he
did at the end after hugging his wife and son was to open an lager.
It had nothing to do with any "Superfood" or any other such thing, or just a will do so, willpower.
He was rigourously tested before and during the event by 2 seperate doctors one american and one russian before doing it, during it, and afterwards.
They were specialists in the bodies metabolism and specifically hypothermia and such related conditions.
He also had similair, with the same scientists, totally and completely monitoring every aspect of the 24 hours before hand and afterwards and during
and after when he immersed himself totally naked in freezing cold water (not frozen but below frozen as the high salt content) in the artic for 20
The doctors, scientists present stated that it HAD NEVER been observed before with proper observation in a human being. Also that it was
Physiologically impossible for him to survive the immersion with n movement or protection. That it was beyong the abilities of the human body to do
so, and most humans would be in an cold induced coma within 3-4 mins. dead within 5-6. He stayed under for 20 mins, and got out unaided and stood
naked and barefoot in the snow talking for a few minutes more.
I would bet my entire remaining life no special forces, and I am dissapointed neformore at your post as a mod for being so flippant, without doing
what he does beforehand could manage 50% of what he does, willpower or super blueberry blubber or not. It is a "physical impossibillity" in the
words of the medical specialists who have read, monitored, experimented and researched all known experiences of humans in such conditions beforehand,
and proven this.
The character in question openly staes as shown in an video above he practises Yoga specifically the breating exercises of Tu Mo, which is well
documented as having an initiation after many years of training to be accepted as an master of such to sit naked in the himilayas, melt the ice around
you, and have wet blankets/sheets which have been dipped into freezing cold water placed over them, which have to be dried out from you heat
repeatedly over a period of around 8 -12 hours.
I really really would like to see a video of any special forces in the world try that one, unless they had done this yoga themselves and mastered
It is tibetan in Nature, and the graetest known practitioner was Milarepa. The modern day "buddha Boy" quite famous now is also an expert in it,
which is why he can sit motionelss and not eat or drink for days on end.
Elf edit to add this video I have on it on ATS Media, explaining the energy system, and monks doing it, with the harvard study
