FAST Fri Jun 24th, 2011 LCM

Swam Tue, Wed & Thu but didn't blog em

On the flight home from Seattle, my son Dane read an article in Outside Magazine about
The 4-Hour Body: An Uncommon Guide to Rapid Fat-Loss, Incredible Sex, and Becoming Superhuman by Timothy Ferriss and decided to investigate further, yesterday he showed it to me.
it makes some amazing claims:
YOU WILL LEARN (in less than 30 minutes each):
* How to lose those last 5-10 pounds (or 100+ pounds) with odd combinations of food and safe chemical cocktails.
* How to prevent fat gain while bingeing (X-mas, holidays, weekends)
* How to increase fat-loss 300% with a few bags of ice
* How Tim gained 34 pounds of muscle in 28 days, without steroids, and in four hours of total gym time
* How to sleep 2 hours per day and feel fully rested
* How to produce 15-minute female orgasms
* How to triple testosterone and double sperm count
* How to go from running 5 kilometers to 50 kilometers in 12 weeks
* How to reverse “permanent” injuries
* How to add 150+ pounds to your lifts in 6 months
* How to pay for a beach vacation with one hospital visit
I looked at the chapters & read a few pages, it looks interesting & currently ranks #33 on Amazon.
Anyone out there read it or tried it?
Got any comments?
I wonder if it really works?
The chapter titled: How I Learned to Swim Effortlessly in 10 Days where he shares how he went from a struggling beginner swimmer (who could barely swim 2 lengths in a pool) to improving his technique and being able to complete a 2,500 meter open water swim.
Hint: he learned TI & provides a nice summary

    I know a few people that have read his book. They swear by his thinking.

    I have read 4 hour work week and about half of 4 hour body. The first is pretty much a motivational book targeted at using out of the ordinary solutions to your problems, aka think outside the box. The 4 hour body is a collection of just about everything he has published on his website with more detail. Some of it works, some of it is accurate, some of it is debatable and some of it has been pretty throughly disproved. Your son picked a good book for airplane reading since the topics are varied, interesting and independent of each other.

    I think you would enjoy the book, but it needs to be read with a critical eye. He referencing method isn't exactly scientific.

    I think I'll try to get a hold of those books. They sound a little crazy but interesting at the same time.

    hey knelson,

    sorry I missed you, seattle was a whirlwind.
    "To me he sounds like he's full of sh**"
    yep his advice may fall in the category of
    "if anything sounds too good to be true it probably is"
    but it might fall in the category of
    "one mans miracle is another mans engineering"


    hey wookiee,

    There you go

    sounds like a balanced opinion, I would think you'd have to learn his advice and correctly follow it for a specified period of time to prove or disprove it


    Hey Bobinator,

    They sound a little crazy but interesting at the same time.
    I hope to read my son's once he's done, but it sounds like one you need to read then pick a project and reread to stay on task.
    We'll see, think he's working on trimming up

    There could certainly be some worthwhile advice. The claims seem to be overblown, but, hey, they need to catch your attention to sell more books!
