The Four Hour Body: Video – Thinner, Bigger, Faster, Stronger?

I get emails (both good and bad) about what I think of Tim’s new book.

Honestly, I have it on order, but I have not read it yet so I will withhold my comments.

I loved the “Four Hour Work Week” and hope the new one will be just as good.   The trailer above looks great and I love Sevendust!  I remember getting a copy of their very first CD back when I worked at a radio station (DJ-ed a Metal Show and was a Music Director at WMTU).  I put it in and LOVED it.  I even got to meet them briefly later the next summer.

Ok, back on track.   The new website for the book is up and you can even read part of it there at www.fourhourbody.com

Here is a video of Tim doing some Hip Thrusts (ala Mr Contreras perhaps?)

I like that he has lots of researchers quoted in the book and with the content including one of my favorite researchers (Timothy Noakes), so it is off to a good start!

I have placed the table of contents below for you to check ou.

Either way, I am excited to read what Tim has learned and I will give you a review as soon as I can.

In the meantime, start testing!
