    The Wim Hof Method Thread

    That book is on my list! You just reminded me to order it. I agree about usually being turned off by improbably medical claims online. I'm the same way. "Doctors hate her." = "This is about to be some scam." :lol: That said, I have noticed some benefits from breath work for a few years, so I...

    The Official CannaBreak Thread

    Sleep issues seem to be some of the most common, with Cannabis breaks. I remember when I took my long break, I had a hard time falling asleep, and a lot of my dreams felt very negative. They weren't classic nightmares, but just situations where I was getting into arguments, or dealing with...

    Athlete Vaporists?

    A cold shower to refresh the body and clear up the mind right before a nice vaping session is such a nice combo. I find that the alertness induced by the cold water contrasts very nicely with the relaxation from the vapor, as the buzz starts to set in. It makes the mindset transition that much...

    That makes sense. Hyperventilation via mouth breathing can help temporarily boost performance ability, due to the expulsion of CO2, and the increase of adrenaline, however, consistently training one's body to be able to handle higher levels of CO2 (nasal breathing) should raise one's overall...

    I'm not surprised! Nasal breathing does a few tings that can make us feel less anxious: 1. Increased levels of CO2 & nitric oxide help improve circulation and oxygenation, which means out hearts don't need to be pounding away to keep us sufficiently oxygenated, and we don't feel the need to...

    Right? How cool! Woooo!!! That's awesome! I'm glad to hear that you're doing well, with the nasal breathing.

    Which are your prefered nicknames for Cannabis?

    I'm still shocked that there's only one vote for "Gas", after >150 votes. I didn't just make that one up. :lol: I think it may come from the "Diesel" strains, esp. on the east coast, but I'm not sure. As of right now, the three leading options are my favorites. "Cannabis", "weed", and "bud"...

    Cannabis vapor has expectorant and bronchodilator properties, so I wouldn't be surprised.

    I'm not 100% sure about the speed of a BOLT score improvement, but according to Patrick McKeown, we can reset our blood CO2 monitoring receptors, with two 5 minute sessions of maintaining a slight air hunger (breathing slightly less than the amount your body is demanding). This is supposed to...

    This is the spray that I use, and I like it a lot. Given how little you have to use, it's pretty cheap, per day, and easier than a Netti Pot, which didn't work for me, when my nasal passages were swollen shut. The water wouldn't run through. Within 2-3 minutes after rinsing and blowing my nose...

    When you're really huffing and puffing through your nose, you will expierience a bit of a runny nose, but once you get used to basal breathing, it seems like the issue is mostly water vs mucus, unless it's allergy season. It can help to use a saline rinse prior to exercising, to clear out your...

    Awesome! Let me know what you think about it. I hope that you can get something useful out of it. Two others that I really like are "The Wim Hof Method", and "What Doesn't Kill Us", by Wim Hof, and Scott Carney respectively. I use a mix of the techniques learned from Wim Hof and Patrick...

    LMAO That's always a plus. Yes! Both are very important. The nitric oxide bit is really interesting. It's a shame that so many people miss out on the benefits. Rinsing out my nasal passages with the saline spray has been working really well, especially after biking and other outdoor...

    According to Patrick McKeown, the author of "The Oxygen Advantage", we shoudl be using nasal only breathing for both inhales and exhales, for most of the time. He even suggests lightly taping your mouth at night, so that you don't revert to mouth breathing, which is pretty common, and has a...

    Thanks! Yea, I've been training MMA for a long time & I'm currently an active BJJ competitor. I make sure to be aware of which techniques are most applicable on the street, and ones that are best suited for BJJ or MMA competition environments, and for the most part, the easiest divider is...

    Athlete Vaporists?

    Muay Thai + BJJ is a great combo for MMA. In regard to street fighting, something that a lot of people don't take into consideration, is that fact that takedowns, throws, and slams are all brutal on concrete. If you get taken down on a mat, it sucks but it's tolerable. If you get taken down or...
