It's like jump starting a car only he doesn't have a car battery so they give him a big slap on the back to pump him up and get him going. It also helps get the blood flowing. Native Americans would slap themselves with little sticks to warm up because it helped get the blood flowing. It works really well once you get out of cold water, and at least it wont kill you like slamming down a 6'er of Red Bull or a shock with a car battery would.
