Just referring back to Dr. Sinclair's Lifespan book he writes, "Another thing you can try is activating the mitochondria in your brown fat by being a bit cold. The best way to do this might be the simplest - a brisk walk in a T-shirt on a winter day..." So it sounds like the exercise with the cold has a really good effect. For the moment I'll keep up with the 6a.m. exercise though I probably only have a couple of weeks left before it becomes too warm for any effect. Might have to try the cryo or go back to the freezing cold showers over the summer.

Just an update on the above - over the last couple of weeks, temperatures in the morning have been no-where near frosty, and in the last couple of weeks I've been no-where near achieving a personal best (pb). (My pb's are based on two different exercises which I alternate each day, both based on the high intensity impact training regime, one of which measures distance over a fixed time, the other which measures energy (calories) expended over a fixed time). Whilst the cold temperatures (none below freezing point but not much above) continued to persist I was generally achieving a new pb once or twice a week. As it happens, this morning has been the coldest for the last couple of weeks (though not what I'd call anywhere near frosty) and I was only a couple of seconds off matching the pb. So I wonder if this is greater SIRT1 activation from the cold boosting the physical ability or just a sub-conscious desire to work harder to stay warm.OzSport wrote: ↑Sat Feb 29, 2020 8:01 pm
The one thing that has continued to improve though through the last couple of weeks is my recovery rate whereby over the 60 seconds from the end of the workout my heartbeat reduction has continued to climb (36 this morning being the most it has ever been whilst it was only 24 when I started this).
I doubt now that there will be any more cold mornings so this experiment will be paused until October/November time. In the meantime I wonder if our friends based DownUnder who might go running or cycling will notice any difference as they move into their winter?
As for me, I am going to try the NAD+ nasal spray for the first time to see what effect this might have as appears to do good things for our friend Pickleball101 (thanks for another interesting update, Ben).
