I listened to a new podcast yesterday and really liked it. I had heard Ultra Endurance athlete, Rich Roll as a guest on Joe Rogan's podcast and thought he was a great guest.  I thought I would check out his podcast and I am glad I did.  Rich holds a good interview and lets the guest talk.  I first listened to this one with Shawn Stevenson on Sleep.  It is very good.  Then, I listened to Rich interviewing The Ice Man, Wim Hof.  Check it out here

I have written about Wim Hof quite a bit here and have been doing the daily breathing for about 8 months.  Performance has improved, most notably in my burpees.  I was not able to do 100 burpees in a row despite trying for many years.  After about a month of the daily breathing, I did 100 consecutive burpees and set an all time PR.  Nothing else was different in my schedule, diet, sleep or training.  The only thing I added was the breathing. 

This breathing method has many more benefits than just performance.  If you are interested, check out Wim being interviewed by Rich Roll
