Hmmmm?

Andrew was the first to tell me about the 4-Hour Work Week and the 4-Hour Body.  He thought that there was some interesting information.


Since then, I've noticed that the book is getting good reviews.   I will give it a gander once I've finished my current book (Sharon Osbourne's autobiography "Extreme"... very good read so far).


I went online to Fitness Tips For Life and grabbed this article....




4 Hour Body is not just another diet and fitness book

The 4-Hour Body is the result of an obsessive quest, spanning more than a decade, to hack the human body. It contains the collective wisdom of hundreds of elite athletes, dozens of MDs, and thousands of hours of jaw-dropping personal experimentation. From Olympic training centers to black-market laboratories, from Silicon Valley to South Africa, Tim Ferriss, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The 4-Hour Workweek,fixated on one life-changing question.........  To read the rest of this article click HERE.

Is it possible for a 4 hour body?  Have you read the book?  What do you think?
Gotta run.

I have it and have read it - It's a beast of a book and is really set up to be read as a 'choose your own adventure' book :D It's interesting and has a lot of data/info that makes you think. I haven't really applied anything yet because I'm giving my current program a chance first.

So can I finish my race in 4 hours? That's all I really want to know. Lol

Kovas - let me know what you think once you've read it.

Shawn - Thank you for the low down on the book. 'Choose your own adventure'.... like the thought of that!

Derek - Ummmmm.... how shall I put this? Fat chance!!!

I'm with Emz. My brother has read it and sees some value in it. I'm up next for it. My unqualified perspective is this: Training only 4 hours a day will require new alignment between race goals/plans with your training load.
