Upper limit of ct

    Hello dear CT practitioners,

    is there a ceiling of CT benefits? I'm not talking about performance. So not piss competition (hope it is the right metaphor in English).

    I do CT for 3-4h a day during sommer but less intense. I work during the morning with a ice block (ca. 5-6kg) on my body alternating the position every 30min (chest and back). I am looking forward to winter to intensify again and do ice baths. I have a tub on my balcony and prepared a creek for some CT to be more connected to nature.

    I plan two sessions. One in the morning and one in the evening of ice baths 20-30min each. I am wondering if it is reasonable to continue my CT during work (ice block on chest and back) which means an additional but less intense 3-4h a day.

    I am have no health issues. It is to add to my regime of antifragilization (consist of 3x/day training, fasting, fasted training, mental training etc. so pretty demanding at least for me).

    I am not a cold fetishist. So, if it would not add any substantial benefit, I'd be more conservative. If there are not good reason the exclude such a (extrem?) practice, I'd explore this realm and share my experiences.

    Best of Luck

    CT truly has no limits as far as I am concerned. It has a seasonal variability and it also has a latitude effect that is 100% tied to your coupling efficiency but even with all that said I cannot think of any time where I would say no........you dont need it.

    Speaking only from personal experience: CT only gets better and better and seemingly you could do it for infinity and still get healthier. That's my experience....

    I think if you die from hypothermia it was too much ;)

    Perhaps a point of diminishing returns?
