Cold water swimming – sometimes referred to as open water swimming or wild swimming – is a great way to stay fit throughout the year.

So, the colder it is, the less time you should spend in the water. 00:00 intro 00:21 Body Temperature 01:00 Benefits of cold water 02:18 Pre-existing conditions 02:36 Hypothermia 03:18 After drop 04:22 Cold shock 05:25 Cold incapacitation 06:46 Cramps Useful Links Submit your Photo and Video to us 👉 https://gtn.io/UPLOAD Check out the GTN Shop 👉 https://gtn.io/TeamKit GTN Training Plans 👉 https://gcn.eu/gtntp Watch more on GTN... 📹 Watch our Editor’s Choice Playlist 👉 https://gtn.io/editorschoice 📹 Watch our weekly show, The GTN Show 👉 https://gtn.io/GTNshowPlaylist Photos: © Triathlon / Getty Images 🎵 Music - licensed by Epidemic Sound / Artlist 🎵 Immune - Gridded.mp3 Floating Leaf - Chill Cole.mp3 Make It Yellow - Andreas Dahlback.wav Ruby - Nihoni.mp3 #gtn #triathlon #swimbikerun #swim #bike #run #coldwaterimmersion #coldwaterswimming #coldwater The Global Triathlon Network (GTN) is the world's biggest triathlon YouTube channel, with new videos every day!
