Iceman: Hugh Jackman


Iceman: Hugh Jackman
He's best known for his role as Wolverine - one of the strongest and most powerful superheroes there ever was.

 However this weekend Hugh Jackman proved he is a real-life superhero, braving the freezing cold sea for a quick dip.

Filming the video was Jackman’s wife and birthday girl, Deborra-Lee Furness, 64. 

‘Two-minutes, yeah! Happy birthday my baby,’ he said walking along the pebble beach. 

It might not sound like the most appealing addition to your routine, but there are several surprising health benefits to taking a dip in cold icy waters. 

If you can bear the initial icy shock, hopping into the icy sea or a cold bath can help lower stress or give you a better night’s sleep. 

A cold shower will thrust your body into boosting its blood circulation, heading straight to the vital organs to keep them warm.

We’ve all seen athletes and rugby players dive into those giant ice baths after the big game or race. Sounds like Jackman is enjoying the benefits of a cold dip too!
