According to weather reports, Britain is set to welcome yet more snow this weekend thanks to the ‘Beast from the East: 2.’

But while it’s probable that the majority of us will deem it a great excuse for a Netflix binge, one woman from Ukraine sees frozen temperatures as the opportunity to go for a naked jog.

Yes, 32-year-old Inna Vladimirskaya believes that her weekly skinny dip in the icy waters of Dnieper river in Kiev is the secret behind her youthful looks.

For the past nine years, she has gone for a weekend jog in sub-zero temperatures (minus running gear) before going for a brisk swim.

And according to Vladimirskaya, the exercise routine helps combat muscle pain while keeping her skin youthful thanks to the increase in oxygen supply.

She explained: “Immersion in cold water makes the blood rush to the internal organs, activating their circulation, which helps break down fat and improve muscle tone.”

The 32-year-old continued, “The walrus looks much younger than its actual age, because it spends so much time in cold water. Humans can reap the same benefits if they are prepared to put the hard work in.”

But of course her routine hasn’t gone unnoticed in the local area, as Czech photographer David Tensinsky had to capture Vladimirskaya’s unusual weekend ritual after hearing of it from locals.

A daring plan for the weekend, perhaps?
