Previously I was doing endurance cycling (he has previously achieved the record for farthest distance cycled off-road in 12 hours male, with 314.65 km / 195.51 miles in 2017). I prepared for the ice record in a similar way to cycling (training, rest, regeneration). I trained in ice, in icy water and in freezing air. In the house where I live, I bathe in cold water. In training, I spent up to 90 minutes in the ice. I added into my training plan the treatments in a Normobaric chamber. Before the record, I also slept in this chamber,” he explained about his training process, cites the blog.
He also described that having this title is a “distinction and a sign that he has mastered a given field. ” He also added that he dedicates “each of his records to people suffering from cancer. ”
