I Took Cold Showers for 30 Days | Benefits of Cold Showers



I took cold showers for 30 days in an attempt to boost my mental fortitude and burn fat. Cold showers never became enjoyable over the past 30 days, but my ability to dive right in and plunge myself into momentary discomfort did improve. As cold showers effects on fat loss, the verdict is still out but I plan to continue experimenting with different forms of cold thermogenesis to burn fat, boost my immune system, help with hormone regulation, and fortify my resolve to face uncomfortable situations head on!

  1. You are really doing a great job with your channel, you have amazing production value and your videos are genuine. I really respect what you have going and the effort you put in. Thank you for the inspiration to help me get back on my growth shit.

  2. Omw, your video quality is stunning as you only have 2k subs, it’s amazing to see people throwing that much effort into their videos/passion… Keep up the great work!

  3. I love this Tyler! A lot of times, these habits are more mental than physical and it's all about convincing ourselves to wanting to do it in the first place. For a little bit, I would take cold showers in the morning after working out but have definitely gotten more lazy on that end. I appreciate that you did this for 30 days and documented the entire process for us though — thanks for sharing πŸ™‚
