While the ALS Ice bucket Challenge dominated trends nearly a decade ago, cryotherapy has now emerged as a vital component of professional athlete recovery. Extreme cold temperatures aid significantly in alleviating body fatigue, a necessity for high-level athletes. However, none of them could do what Lucasz Szpunar from Poland did to enter the Guinness World Records. Lucasz achieved the longest duration of full-body ice contact, enduring immersion in a tank filled with ice for an astounding 4 hours and 2 minutes — a remarkable feat considering most of us cannot keep an ice pack for longer than a few minutes. Check out Szpunar’s record on Guinness World Records and find out how long you could last in an ice bath, let alone fully submerged in ice.
