It’s time to get uncomfortable. This week on the podcast, we have Dr. Susanna Søberg, a winter swimming expert, best-selling author, and scientist who studies metabolism during stress and rest. Dr. Søberg has extensive experience studying what happens to us on a molecular level when we subject ourselves to frigid temperatures, and how that exposure can provide a host of physical and mental benefits, including stimulating our metabolism. She joins VP of Performance Science Kristen Holmes to dive into cold water plunging and how you can ease yourself into the practice if it’s new to you.
