ICELAND DAY 2: THOR'S ICEBATH

ICELAND DAY 2: THOR'S ICEBATH

June 28, 2017

Man, we sure can get a lot done with all this daylight! Located in the North-Atlantic ocean close by the Arctic Circle, Iceland is daylight all 24hrs a day in the summer. I've never felt so awake and charged up to do so much in one day.

Wake up with Spartan Strong and get going. We spent our morning in Thor's Power Gym. If you aren't familiar with Iceland's Strongest Man,  Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson was cast as "The Mountain" in the last three season of Game of Thrones. He is by far the biggest person I have ever seen in my life.

For lunch we kicked things off "American's Style" burgers and fries. OFF the Keto plan finally and loving it. We made our way to downtown Reykjavik for the Iceland Strongman festivities.

"No such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing" In Iceland you always have to BE PREPARED for rain and even hail storms. We packed our rain gear everyday so we weren't slowed down a bit.

Finally we watched Thor break record as he carried the 419lb Husafell stone and become Iceland's Strongest Man. We had a blast and he invited us back to his place for dinner and a soak in his ICE BATH. They say hopping between hot and cold tubs is great for recovery. It was really freaking cold.

Lived in a hospital for a month+, emergency surgery to remove large intestine which doc said would have disintegrated & killed me if they waited a few more hours. Lived for 6 months with an ostomy (intestine sticking out my abdomen into a bag)

He lost just under 15lbs, 10%+ body fat, and a total of 16.7 inches in 1 month! That's like 2 lbs a day!

John was a bit skeptical when he first signed up.

But his skepticism disappeared after he started seeing his muscle get more chiseled, and felt his pants fit him looser.

See what John said after finishing the challenge:
