Why bundle up when you can take it off?

Oleg Rezanov tossed his half-naked body out of a plane in subzero temperatures Saturday — all in the name of a world record.

Resanov is known as "Lord of the Cold" in his native Russia. The ex-military officer wore only shoes and shorts as he jumped from 13,451 feet in the air.

It was minus 58 degrees.

But it was worth it. Not only did the former Russian military officer break the record for the coldest ever half-naked skydive, the stunt earned him his 12th record in extreme cold activities. It was confirmed by Winter Records, an organization that files records on winter activities, RT reports.

Resanov said he prepares by training out in the cold.
