I am just finishing up a retreat in the Spanish Pyrenees where I learned some powerful techniques that have the ability to improve people lives dramatically. I did a video with the retreat leader, Wim Hof, who is world famous for his super human abilities. Most people don’t believe when I tell them some of the feats this guy has done but you don’t have to believe me because he has had all of them recorded and can be found simply by google-ing him.
In this video with Wim Hof, high on top of a mountain in the Spanish Pyrenees, I demonstrate a simple Wim Hof breathing technique that can:
Boost the immune system
Activate the natural healing mechanisms
Instantly reduce anxiety
Open up the detox pathways
Activate all the happy neurochemicals in the brain
Help eliminate back pain
Make you super human
The list of benefits go on and on and on, and I am living proof. After only a couple days with Wim I was able to spend 15 minutes in 30 degree water 2 days in a row after performing these techniques. Cold water training is another technique he uses to improve health.
This is all backed by science. If you saw my video on the hyperbaric oxygen chamber, these breathing techniques are like having your own hyperbaric oxygen chamber except it is FREE and anyone can do it at anytime!
Done consistently these techniques can have profound effects in all areas of your life.
Technique 1 (retention breathing)
In one breath, breath into your belly, then your chest then your head like a wave then exhale by just relaxing the body and breath in again in the same pattern
Repeat the breathing about 40 times or until lightheaded (based on feeling)
Take 2 deep inhales and on the last full exhale hold your breath at the end of the exhalation until you feel the need to breath
Then take a deep breath in and hold for 15-30 second putting pressure to you neck area.
Then repeat as needed
CLICK HERE to check out the video, try out a few rounds of the breathing technique and let me know what you think by leaving a comment with your feedback.
Not many people know about this amazing therapy and it’s massive benefits. Some say it is a secret anti aging technique used by Hollywood to look and feel younger. The more oxygen we can get to the body the better off we are, that is why exercise is so beneficial. Lack of oxygen is the #1 threat to the brain and body.
If you increase oxygen you increase the health of every cell and all functions of the body.
“Tissues in the body require an adequate oxygen supply for normal functioning and even more to survive injury. HBOT increases the amount of oxygen the blood can carry, which raises or temporarily restores normal levels of blood gases and tissue function to promote healing and to fight infection… Apart from its medically recommended uses, I’ve seen HBOT promoted as a cure for cancer, a treatment for chronic fatigue syndrome, a way to reduce allergy symptoms as well as a beneficial measure for persons with AIDS, arthritis, sports injuries, multiple sclerosis, autism, stroke, cerebral palsy, senility, cirrhosis, Lyme disease, and ulcers.” Dr. Weil
If you live in Hilton Head/ Beaufort area and you are interested in trying this out, let me know and I can give you the details of the place that I go to.
Coach Stephen talking about the importance of mobility drills and warming up.
The warm up is important. It’s going to activate the nervous system, get more synovial fluid to our joints, it’s gonna increase our heart rate and blood flow to the working muscles when we do the mobility, activation or warm up drills. It’s gonna psychologically prepare us for the training and going to increase our strength, endurance, mobility, flexibility, stability. At EarthFIT, the Beaufort personal trainers keep you safe, less joint aches and pains, and more results.
“Hey! What’s going on? Since we are in full blown flu and cold season and I have people asking me all the time every day what to do to prevent the flu but also to recover from it and getting congestion and phlegm out of the body. So I’m going to explain to you now some of the best natural ways to help recover you from the flu and also to prevent it during the winter season because let’s face it, that’s the time when most people are coming down with illnesses, colds, flu, etc.. And so I’m going to break down what and why I do certain things and so we have a few things here you might recognize some of them, maybe some of them you have never even have heard before like Cajeput Oil which I’ll explain Cajeput… you might have seen my son speak about that in the video. I’m going to explain to you why I do it, what I do so we’re gonna start first off about getting sick.
Now we have what’s called free radicals in the body. Free radicals are created when we workout, we have stress etc. and some of it is normal and totally fine and needed but when we have excessive free radicals in the body then that’s when we can start to have effects on the immune system and pick up colds, flus, viruses, etc. and so we use a food typically we want to use food all the time to help boost our immune system with vitamins and minerals. But sometimes we need supplements to help assist us along the way and as you see some of these are not supplements, they are actually food. Alright, so we have some food here but these supplements that I have here right now are extremely powerful at assisting our body. So let’s speak about Vitamin C.
Vitamin C – is an antioxidant so when we have free radicals we want to neutralize them with antioxidants and we’ll take in let’s say vitamin C and that goes into the cell and it helps with memory, immune function, it even helps you just feeling better overall. So this vitamin C right here is Meta-C. The type of vitamin C is extremely important. We want to stay away from the genetically modified corn based vitamin C’s and you want to get a good form of vitamin C like this has biologically active metabolites and so this gets metabolites a little bit differently and it comes from spirulina as well so spirulina also helps with the detoxification. So right here this is 500mg of meta calcium ascorbate. There’s many different types of vitamin C which leads me to my next one which is this is by mercola that I bought. This is liposomal vitamin C.
Liposomal Vitamin C – Many times vitamin C doesn’t get absorbed like it should and gets caught up in the gut and ends up staying there in the gut. Liposomal vitamin C gets absorbed a lot easier through the gut and into the cells and this is where you want the vitamin C to go. So this is very powerful, this is fairly new as it comes to a supplement industry so you might see liposomal vitamin C or a liposomal glutathione products out there and they help with the absorption rate.
Acetylcysteine – is another thing that I use. It helps glutathione production which is one of the biggest antioxidants or the number 1 as some people say antioxidant needed and this also helps process mucusout of the body.
So these 2 together (Liposomal Vitamin C and Acetylcysteine) are very powerful so just using those will help boost the immune system, help neutralize the free radicals that you might have in your body especially if you’re sick or you feel like you’re coming down with something, these are very important. Now I did something that I’m not supposed to do the other day which I tell all of my clients not to do. I woke up I felt like I was like fighting something at the night, I woke up and I had like a little tickling my throat with a phlegm and I went and trained with my staff, I worked out. Working out while you’re under the weather is a no no because you already have the free radicals there, your body is fighting, your immune system is working to help combat the issue that is there and then if you’re going to workout that lowers your immune system and then exposes you to you know getting worst infection or whatever it might be. And so I ended up working out. I cut the workout short because I was like guys this is probably not good for me, I was feeling something but I wasn’t sure if I was really sick or not. It turns out yeah I should’ve definitely not workout and I ended up getting like a full blown flu and I haven’t gotten that a long time. But, I know how to get rid of it very quickly so in one night I was able to get rid off I had a swollen throat, burning in my throat, joint aches and pains, fatigue when you walk… so I started of with a vitamin C and then to get rid of the congestion and the throat issue this was helping with the congestion on the throat as well but this is one of the best oils around for numerous functions and it’s oil of oregano.
Oil of Oregano – This one Joy of the Mountains is one of my favorite. It is diluted with olive oil and this stuff is powerful so I’ll take depending on where you are, how much you have used before, you can take 4 or 5, 10 drops put it on to the bottom of your tongue, drink it with some water there you go or you mix it with olive oil and rub it on the bottom of your feet. This is already mixed, this is already diluted. We have some here that’s not diluted so you have to be very careful and really know what you’re doing with this. This stuff right here like I said is diluted, you can take drops put them right in your mouth, you’ll instantly start to feel better, the burning in the throat will disappear. This is antiseptic, anaesthetic, it helps numb the area. So it’s antibacterial, it helps with sinuses like this is proven through studies to be helpful for pneumonia, bronchitis etc., sinus infections and respiratory infections, one of the most powerful tools that you can use so we’re talking about helping yourself naturally so this is a natural product that will help.
Oreganol Juice – I use both of these in combination because there are a little bit different properties in both of them so when I take a few drops of these (Oil of Oregano), I take a teaspoon of this… Bam! It knocks out most of the issues right away. Then on top of that now I’ve taken these 2 things (Liposomal Vitamin C and Acetylcysteine) It helps process out the mucus and then I help that along even further with oil pulling.
Coconut Oil – usually I use coconut oil but you can use sesame oil, it has been the one that studied the most. Coconut oil that I found works fine so when I wake up in the morning and before I go to bed at night usually I wake until after I’ve eaten at least the half hour. I take coconut oil I put it in my mouth and I swish it around for 15 minutes and just like pull it through your teeth and push it out… and that draws out the bacteria, the mucus from your respiratory system as well as your mouth. And then you may have heard about oil pulling.
Bentonite Clay – Most people have not heard about this mainly because just from knowing how the body works I tested this out and this has been one of the best things for me when it comes to mucus.It’s a little bit disgusting but I’ll do the oil pulling and then I take bentonite clay and I put it in like about a tablespoon or teaspoon in this much water, stir around I let it sit for a little while because what happens is, what it does is it opens up the pores to absorb the toxins. So I pour this in the water, I put the water in my mouth, I swish the bentonite clay around and then it absorbs more of the toxins and it pulls out, it draws out all of the mucus literally like right then and there, like there’s no waiting it’s just like I swish it around for 5 minutes, I gargle with it if you have a sore throat, the sore throat will dissipate instantly, it will pull out the toxins from your sore throat and then you spit the water out.
Very important thing you want to make sure that you spit this out in the toilet or outside because when you’re oil pulling it really pulls out some terrible toxins that you do not want to spit into your sink so that’s one caveat then one thing I didn’t bring here which is very powerful as well and this are other things that I used to assist in the process is I’ll take a shot of apple cider vinegar and directly after that I take like a half of teaspoon of Manuka honey.
Manuka Honey – Not all things are created equal. At most stores you’ll see manuka honey with an MGO+ of about 15. For this to be beneficial to you medicinally has to have MGO of above 16. So I would say if you go to Whole Foods, I would say pretty much not all of those are really not beneficial to most that I’ve seent that Whole Foods is like +20. This is one is +820. Now this stuff is powerful medicinal. What that means is how powerful it is as an antiseptic. And so it has a higher enzymes, more beneficial properties to it. The higher it is on MGO, the more expensive it is going to be. This honey right here is about $45-50 so you can use it sparingly, it’s not something you want to put in your tea but I have done that as well because as soon as this is heated up it kills all the good enzymes so that’s why you don’t want to put that in your tea.
Now the other thing , so I would do all these things and on top of that I drink this tea that I am about to go over with you anyways but, this is a tea that is extremely powerful. I share it with everybody even the other day someone said “Hey, my girlfriend was drinking your ginger turmeric lemon honey tea and she was losing a pound a day just by drinking your tea” and I was like “Whoa! that’s the first time I’ve heard of that…” and she hasn’t changed anything else but drank the tea so this helps open up your detox pathway. So the tea is giner; this is ginger root. I shave this off, I grated up. Usually when I make it I make big bushes of it so I use a massive amounts of ginger root. The more, the better. Then smaller amount of turmeric probably about 1/3 amount of ginger that you use, same thing shave this down, grate it, put it into a pot, steep it for at least 20 minutes the longer the better. Once the tea is steeped, you strain it, put a lemon. I literally put sometimes a whole lemon in so 8 oz, I put a whole lemon, I’ll squeeze it all in there or a half of lemon right depending on how many lemons we have, who’s using it, and then I’ll stir in raw honey. And then drink that throughout the day.
Ginger Turmeric Lemon Honey Tea – And that’s going to open up the pores, open up your circulation. Ginger is anti-bacterial, anti-microbial, this is a blood thinner so it helps with circulation. Turmeric helps everything brain functions, I mean like (the list goes on and on), inflammation, this helps with inflammation. This ginger also has what’s called a cox 2 inhibitor, it’s a pain reliever, they put that in ibuprofen so they’re using properties from this in some of the over-the-counter medications.
So it probably seems like a lot. I guess now that I put them together it is but I don’t think about it when I’m doing it. It’s just like couple of these, shots of apple cider vinegar, a little table spoon of that, this tastes really good so that’s awesome. The tea that I make tastes great. I drink it even not when I’m sick because I use it as recovery for even training because it’s anti inflammatory it’s awesome it helps with recovery from a hard intense workout. This (Oil of Oregano, Oreganol Juice) typically I only use in the times that I need it and we use these I mean if my son has a fever we put it a drop, I put it on his foot. It’s gone instantly. And then these (Oil pulling) I only use when I’m feeling sick or run down as well. You can do oil pulling every night it’s not a big deal, that’s actually very healthy for your mouth and your teeth. This (Bentonite clay) I’m not too sure about the long term use of Bentonite clay but I’d think… I’m not sure I can’t really give opinion on that ‘cause I haven’t studied it. The last thing I want to talk about is the Cajeput oil.
Cajeput Oil – This is the antiseptic, anti inflammatory but it also helps process mucus out of the body as well and this stuff works really great. This is like powerful stuff, from plant therapy, it’s organic cajeput oil. Again, you can take it dilute it with coconut oil and put it on the bottom of your feet. The reason why I’ve been saying put on the bottom of your feet because you have about 200 nerves at the bottom of your feet so that nutrients gets transported throughout the body a lot easier, much better but you could also put it where you need it. I’ve taken it and I put it on my chest when I’ve had congestion and it helps process the mucus out.
So, I hope you find this helpful. If you have any comments or questions about any of these stuff, let me know. These right here if you have any cold, flu symptoms, any type of sickness for the most part like it’s not obviously disease that you are ailing from. This will get rid of it and you will feel better like 50, 70, 80% faster than if you did nothing or even if you got over the counter medication because if you got medication for your colds, flu, sickness whatever you have to recover from the flu and at the same time recover from the toxins that you put into your body from the over the counter medication which is most of the time the case that you’re getting over the counter medication. I hope again you find this helpful. This is really powerful stuff. Remember, food is your medicine and we’re taking properties from food naturally and using these to help the body assist to along the way, to recover and feel better. Alright, have a good day!”
“Hey! What’s going on? I wanted to do a video on breathing and specifically your heart rhythm and the reason being is because we talk a lot about breathing in training so people come in to EarthFIT and we are telling them in between the training focus on your breathing, deep breaths in through the nose, out through the mouth, control your breathing, etc… Even in the end of the stretching I’m saying “Breathe in through your nose for 4 seconds, breathe out through your mouth for 4 seconds and get into a rhythm.” And so I don’t think many people really understand the power of why I’m telling them that and the reasons behind it. So what I’m going to do now is show you a little bit about how powerful this is and I’m doing it using a tool so you can actually, literally see live feedback just from me using this tool. This is called the emWave by HeartMath. You might have seen some of my post about HeartMath, it’s a scientific community that calculates coherence from your heart and brain rhythm and gives you feedback from your heart rhythm and when you shift your heart rhythm to a specific coherence, it generates positive feelings in you and so you can get this rhythm continuously and daily. You’re gonna feel much better about everything, your system’s gonna function better and so just in training while we are stretching, I like to get people into the rhythm because stretching and cooling down has a good mental and spiritual, physical aspect to it. And when someone wants to go to intense training, they have high endorphins. Now we get more oxygen into the body, they get in the good heart rhythm and good stretching. They’re going to feel absolutely amazing and they’re going to go into their day with that same positive effect and it’s going to help everybody else around them, etc..
So the way this works (emWave) is… it has infrared light, this gets clipped on the ear and then this infrared light is sending feedback from the blood flow in my ear down to the millisecond. And so I’m going to pull the camera close to show you what I’m talking about and I’ll try and get into a good coherence here, it’s going be… maybe tough while I’m doing a video. But essentially, I can use this tool by itself just by using all this stuff right here, but essentially I clipped this on to my ear and I’ll come over here and press play. And this will give me live feedback as to what is going on so it’s calibrating and now I’m gonna take some few deep breaths to try to get my heart rate variability, it’ll tell me if I am at a low coherence, medium or high, so right now I’m very low, right, I’m doing a video; I’m not really thinking; I’m thinking about just giving energy out to you guys, and now, I’m going to start to breath consistently. (Please see the video)
Alright, so I’m not going to sit here all day and do it, but you can see I just started to control my breathing and now all of a sudden the coherence level starts to rise up. And this computer, this actually has games and stuff that I can play. I’m going to stop this now, but a good heart rate variability will be consistent up and down… and this actually affects everything from your blood pressure. So, you can literally see…I can’t find it now but there’s a good picture which I’ll try and post in a blog that I do of the actual incoherence and coherence and the differences you would see on this piece of equipment here.
So why am I telling you this video? Well, you are in control of your physiology to a certain degree. You can sit there and just do consistent breathing. There’s a lot of people who believe that meditation itself… there’s a lot of people – buddhism, and a lot of aspects of meditation they say, meditation is just the breathing in and breathing out and really getting that coherence level and positive energy flowing up through you. So very important throughout the day you can do this 2, 3, 4, 5x a day. The goal would be to be in coherence consistently all the time, like even right now, if I was speaking to you and I was just breathing easily you might not be listening to the video because I’d be boring, but the point is to get in coherence with your breathing. Get to a rhythm, you can do it 5, 10 minutes. It’s a practice and the more you do it, the more you get in coherence, the better you feel, the better effects for your health and more positive emotions come out inside you so I hope this video helps you. If you have any questions, comments, let me know. Have a good day!”
This one thing is direct marker of your biological age.
When you increase this one thing, you know you are
increasing your health.
As this one thing decrease a quicker death rate linked to this one marker increase.
“Hey! What’s up? I wanted to do a video on a specific topic that I think is very important for every single one of our clients specifically but actually in general as a population because this is something that is a biological marker of your age. This tells us your biological age and it has to do with grip strength.
Grip strength is extremely important. They’ve done numerous studies on it but in one study specifically in Perspective Urban and Rural Epidemiological (PURE) study was done 140,000 people and they follow them for over 4 years and what they found is that over those 4 years if your grip strength went down about 11Lbs your likelihood of dying of any cause increased by 16%, dying of heart disease increased by 17%, having a stroke increased by 9% and having a heart attack increased by 16% as well. So it’s directly linked to your biological age but those are just some cues, those are just some studies to give you insight as to your grip strength directly related to your body because really it comes down to your nervous system and it also comes down to the strength that you have inside your body so how much muscle you have and that’s what they figured out in the long run… is that really it comes down to how much strength you have, how much muscle you have.
But, the most important part that I want to speak to you about is while you are in training. We see a lot of people who are picking up the weights incorrectly, you’re doing pullups incorrectly and they’re not engaging their nervous system by using the grip of their hands and so I’m just gonna show you a couple of things that will dramatically change and alter the way that you move and the strength… Essentially, how much force you use in your muscles. For example, shoulder press. (Please see the video) If I stand here with my arms open and I press up. I’m neuromuscularly not really engaging my shoulders. As soon as I squeeze these kettlebell all of a sudden I have a direct connection from my brain all the way through activating my whole nervous system right even the fight or flight aspect of it, the sympathetic nervous system to press up. And you can test this out on your own. If you open up your hands and you do the exercise I all of the sudden feel way more unstable, I don’t feel as strong as when I squeeze and then press up. It’s a completely different feeling.
So with the deadlift, this is taught as a specific aspect of the deadlift when you walk up to the bar or the kettlebell or whatever it is you prepare yourself mentally but also physically. And one of physical ways of doing it is squeezing as hard as you can as soon as you squeeze it fires up the nervous system and your strength skyrockets so we hear people go to pick up the weight, pick up the deadlift and they say “Oh I can’t do it…it’s too heavy!” most of the time it feels it’s too heavy because they’re not engaging the grip strength to the maximum capacity. So when you go into a deadlift, you want to squeeze the bar like you are about to pick up 500 Lbs whether if you’re picking up 500 Lbs obviously that is what you want to do but even if you are picking up a hundred pounds or 60 Lbs because the engagement of your nervous system is what ultimately gives you results. So someone could pick up a kettlebell and do 10 reps without really engaging their nervous system meaning they’re not firing the muscles and the muscle fibers so they’re not getting the results as if someone with thesame exact weight, the same range of motion but they’re squeezing the kettlebell and engaging their nervous system. So that’s where results come from, the more you connect your mind with your body the more you engage your nervous system, the more results you’re going to get.
And so same with the pull up bars, we have the pull up bars over here. Alright, So let me show you real quick. We see some people… they won’t grip the bar tight and they actually have their hands hanging off with no thumb and so this is a good way to training if you are doing something like rock climbing but for the most part we want to see grip squeezing and then the pullup becomes totally different and much easier.
So, in conclusion every single exercise for the most part except for a kettlebell snatch should be full activation of your grip even the bench press how you bench press, you want to squeeze and bring the weights together. So going forward, I would ask you to consider fully engaging your grip and even practicing strengthening your grip in general and you can do that with farmer’s carry, we do that in training where you hold the weights and then you walk with them and you’re squeezing the weights to engage your nervous system. And that’s how you gain and improvement grip strength. I hope this helps and any questions or comments go ahead and leave below.”
“Hey! What’s going on? So today I’m going to go over a simple workout routine that you can do in about 10 or 15 minutes that will give you an awesome workout and it will help with cardiovascular and aerobic capacity as well as upper body strength so the way that it goes, it’s going to be 5 repetitions of 3 sets and it’s going to be what’s called speed, endurance with running so you’re gonna find 50 yard space and you’re going to start off at one end and sprint 50 yards building up the speed so you’re going to start off fairly slow and towards the end you’re going to explode as fast as you can for the last 10 yards and then you jog back and then you repeat 5 reps. And then in between, you’re gonna be doing 10-15 reps of pushups, feel free to push yourself up to 20 reps. This really depends on where you are at your fitness level and you’re going to be doing that 3 sets. So I’m going to demo how you’re going to do one of the sprints and then the push ups.
Alright, so I’m going to show you 1 rep of the sprints. You’re gonna do 5 reps of that and then going to the pushups. Alright, so here is my starting spot going to get in position, slowly start off and then speed up and then jog back to the starting spot and then repeat that for 5 reps and then in between we’re going to be doing pushups where you do a toe touch each time so faster movements okay depending where you are at your fitness level 10, 15, 20 reps as many as you can do of those push ups with good form. Do 1 set, rest about a minute and then repeat for 3 total sets.
Alright so there you go, there’s your workout for thanksgiving. I hope you enjoy… have a great one and I’ll see you on the other side!”
-5 Reps or 50 Yard Sprints
-10-20 Reps of Toe Touching Push Ups
-Minute rest in between sets
“Hey! What’s going on? It’s Ian Hart here at EarthFIT and today I’m going to just go give you a little tour of the sauna and then give a pointers on keeping it clean, how you want to handle the sauna, how you want to use it, how it’s powerful for detox and then I’m actually going to jump in the sauna for about an hour today myself, and I’ve been building up to an hour. The first day I did about half hour, 35 minutes, I did 45 minutes the next one, and then I’ve build up to it. And then I’m going to be doing a specific detox after that.
So here is the sauna, it’s a 4 person sauna as you can see it has a stereo system. Right now it’s on clear glass, we’re going to be getting some dividers here so people won’t be looking out at the gym because right now this is open to the gym.
And so there’s a few things for the sauna. You want to be extremely hydrated, you do want to progress to longer term. The power is in the sweating so when you’re sweating we know that the toxins are coming out from the sweat. This is proven through research that the sweat you do in your training is helpful but in the sauna the toxins increases by a large percentage like 80-90% more.
This is most powerful after a training so if you do a training you want to go into a sauna, you continue to sweat you’ll get more toxins out. In the training it uses your cardiovascular system so it gets the toxins circulating and now there’s two ways that the toxins get out your body – through your intestinal tract, and through the sweat. And so we do the sweating and then I always recommend if you’re not doing the actual detox which includes supplements that you take bentonite clay, bentonite clay binds with the toxins in your gut and carries them out. You can also use activated charcoal but activated charcoals are a little bit harsh on the body, it does absorbs a lot of toxins and the minerals in your body as well which is not that beneficial but it can be beneficial if you have like serious toxins in the body. They use it at the emergency room if you overdose on you know drugs, alcohol etc. to absorb the toxins.
So once you go into the sauna you want to make sure you’re not overheating so you should be extremely hydrated and you should hydrate while you are in there. You’re going to start pouring sweat, you want to grab a few towels and be continuously wiping the sweat down. Sometimes it gets annoying because you’re like you’re really sweating in here non stop like you wipe on place and then where you wiped 2 seconds later you’re sweating again. But, because there’s toxins and the sweat you don’t want to get it re-absorbed so you want to wipe it and get it absorbed in the towel about 15-20 minutes in the towel I’m using and I don’t really sweat that much like compared to some other people, it’s pretty much soaking wet so you want to have 3 or 4 towels ready if you’re going to go in for an hour. If you hit a point where you feel extremely fatigue and tired from it, you can just step out or open up the door if it’s just you by yourself. You can just step out for 2 seconds if you’re in there with other people who want to keep it hot there’s a timer. We want to set the timer… and actually I’m going to set the timer it’s about to go out as I step in here so I’m going to go up 60 minutes. And then if the door is open like it is right now it’s going to go down in temperature quite a bit, it’s a 117 degrees in there. As soon as I close the door it’s going to start to go up in temperature. It’s set at its highest possible degree right now which is 158 degrees. I’ve noticed that at set with 158, it goes up to about 145-146 it never really gets up to 158. I haven’t seen that yet.
And when you’re done, you ‘re gonna be sweating and dripping sweat all over there inside and so it’s very important that we keep it clean. Again, these are toxins coming out of you. So we have a bucket here to wash down and we’re going to be getting… we have a mop that’s going to be attached, not a mop but a scrub brush. We would sweat it down in the bucket and take it inside and scrub down completely the area that you have been sitting in that’s wet with the sweat. And then we scrub it down and then we wipe it down again with a dry towel just to take up all the toxins and then we will be cleaning it once a week – a full cleaning.
The other thing that is very important to know is that after your session in the sauna, you want to take a cold shower for few reasons; This will cool your core temperature, it will wash off the toxins and sweat in the body. You don’t want to keep that on you for a long time and it helps your immune system, and actually stimulates your immune system so it helps your lymphatic system drain out some of the toxins again and then if you’re drinking a big glass of bentonite clay… let me show you what I have right now. These are my water supply for the session. I’ve already drank about 8 cups of water so I have another 4 cups of water here and another 2 and a half here. This is bentonite clay, I’m going to drink this after my session or maybe a little bit during it to absorb more of the toxins.
So for people who are going to be going in the sauna at EarthFIT, you must watch the video. We’re giving 4 free sessions away to everybody at EarthFIT who is currently a client with us and 4 half hour sessions to use so you can try it out, see if you like it, see if you feel the benefits and this video you must watch it first so you understand everything. Now, the next step after this is we’re going to be having a powerful detox. It’s one of the best detox you can do bar none; this is research for over 60 years. There’s not many places in the US where you can actually do it because it’s very entailed process but I will be taking people through this to help cleanse the toxins that have been accumulated over their whole entire life. And so when this occurs, there’s massive changes on the energetic level, mental level. I’m taking them to the next step and actually help people heal, and recover from you know things that they didn’t even really realize were there. You’ll see radiation come out of your body. For example, when you take some of the supplements and go into the sauna you’ll see sunburns come out of the body, you’ll see places where you’ve been injected with anaesthesia or… where they put anaesthesia in your body and even things like if you’re in a korean pool for large part of your life which I was as a kid, chlorine come out, numerous other things that I can tell you about. They’ve used this on people who are 911 victims who inhaled all the chemicals, people who have gulf war syndrome and other people who are exposed to harmful toxins to help them release those toxins. Alright, and they’ve seen these symptoms disappear as soon as the toxins release and you can actually see it on the towel. So this is the benefits of the sauna, as well as how to go about using the sauna for the best benefit and the best health effects. Have a good day!”
Tom went from walking with a CANE to SWINGING a 62lb kettle bell and doing 135lb deadlift.
He lost 35 lbs and 5 inches on his waist. You can read his testimonial below.
“I never thought I’d be racing, auto racing again and I know Ian promised me that we’ll see where we can go and we’ll get you better than you were. I didn’t know I would get that far, and people are amazed. I’ve got friends from before I had all the surgeries and they’re just amazed that I’m now able to do all that.
I talk to people; I would definitely recommend no matter where they are because if you’re not happy with where you are you’ve got nothing to lose, and the main thing is you just got to don’t give up, you just got to try.
Well, before EarthFIT, I’ve gone through a number of operations, knees and I had some back issues. So, what I do because of the back issues, and even after going through therapy, I was no longer able to work on cars. I had to give up auto racing which I really like, and I like walking. I couldn’t walk more than about a quarter of a mile. Before, I used a cane. In fact, I had to use a cane a lot at work for my knees. So I went to Ian in March of 2013 and told him, “well, I’ll try anything,” and we just started with the basic stretches. I wasn’t really able to lift weights at that point and now at this point I’ve been racing cars for the last 2 years, I can work on cars, I can also, you know, lift up wheels and tires, I can do 135lbs on the deadlift. I’ve gone from my 38 waist to a 33 waist, and I’ve gone from a 207 lbs to a 172 lbs and maintaining that weight now. I’m just trying to stay in shape and working out so I’m extremely happy with what Ian’s done for me at EarthFIT.
I was skeptical at first when I talked to Ian. I’ve been through some therapy up north when I was up there, and they just did stretches and stuff and they really were not able to do much for me so I was skeptical, but again, willing to try anything and I was impressed when I looked at a video on the back issues so it helped the fact that Ian had gone through some of the issues I had with the back, and so it worked. I’m extremely happy.
I’ve lost from 207 to 172, so 35lbs I lost, but more importantly at least from me is I lost 5 inches off the waist. This biggest impact is the fact I’m now like to stay active. I’m not really a TV person or I don’t like to sit around. I like to be active whether, you know, going to the race track, going to car shows, or just walking. I really enjoy just going for nice long walks and I’m able to do all that. It’s fine. I’m tired at the end of the day but that’s a good thing.”
“Today I’m going to go over with you the concept of supercompensation. When we do an assessment on someone we test their base level of fitness. The base level could be exactly where they are at today and then we go over to where we want to take them. So the end game helps create the program for us but supercompensation happens for everybody who’s training, and if you move outside of this model, your results are going to be diminished.
So, let me explain how the process works. If I test someone’s base level of fitness while I’m testing them or while they are working out, they are actually fatiguing the body. They’re breaking down the muscle; they are actually losing glycogen, ATP in the muscle. Calcium helps contract the muscle and the magnesium relaxes the muscle, they’re losing minerals, your nervous system’s getting fatigue, your immune system actually goes down slightly right? but this is also benefit because when you build back the body your immune system gets stronger. So while you’re working out you are actually fatiguing the body.
Okay, so your base level is right here (please see the video). Now you’re fatiguing the body; the changes occur when you go home, you eat, sleep and drink water right? I did a video on Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness; you might have some muscle soreness. So the changes occur when you go home, you eat, sleep and drink water. Now your body has an amazing ability to adapt to whatever stress is being put on and it recovers at a better state. It is what’s called Supercompensation.You have to train in that period again in a progressive, scientific way to see results. If not, you are gonna end up back down here and won’t get the results. So, for an example, running one day a week and swimming one day a week you are not gonna get better at either. Initially, if you have not been doing anything you might see a little bit of results, but you’re not going to really see any strides in that type of training scenario. So, it’s got to be a progressive, scientific way to get you to the next level of whatever are your goals.
So, 2x a week is typically a better minimum to see results. 3x a week you see about 33% more results, right? Because you are training 1/3 of the time more. 4x a week you see about 25% more results and this depends on the training program. A good training program, you can really maximize results; bad training program who knows where it’s going to take you. Now, if you train too much, too hard, too often, you can go into overtraining. The chances that I’ve seen of that happening in the general population is very slim to none so I don’t think you’re at a, you know, risk of that for the most part, but it does happen.
So, supercompensation: we fatigue the body, we put stress on the body then the body recovers, and it recovers at a better state in preparation for that next level of stress, which that stress should be within a threshold that your body can handle for safety reasons, for not going into overtraining or pushing too hard or exerting, because if you do push too hard, too much you can cause yourself to get sick if it lowers the immune system, and then intaking the right nutrients so that you build your body back up. This is why a protein and good simple carbs after training helps the process of repairing, etc. So simple model supercompensation you want to make sure you have a training program that can take you in progressive steps to get you to burn fat, gain lean muscle and feel good, which is typically what everybody is looking for the most part. There you have it. I hope this helps. Have a great day! Ian Hart with EarthFIT training.”
