Handbook “How to prepare for ocean rowing”. 1. Start getting ready in autumn when it’s colder and damper. Get dressed in the morning as usual for work in the office. Then go out into the yard and pour 2 buckets of cold water on your head. Do not be afraid, do not worry. Pretend that nothing has happened and go to work. This procedure must continue throughout the day. Colleagues can help. The main thing is to follow the interval – when the clothes have almost dried. After intensive 3-week workouts, you will get used to it and will no longer be able to do without this procedure.
