4 Hour Body – Last Minute Christmas Gift

If you’re still hunting for that perfect gift for the fitness enthusiast on your list, I suggest you take a look at Timothy Ferriss’s latest book – The 4 Hour Body.

If the name sounds familiar, that’s because Tim Ferriss is the author of #1 New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and BusinessWeek bestseller The Four Hour Workweek (one of my all-time favorite books).

The Four Hour Body is a true masterpiece. It is the “result of an obsessive quest, spanning more than a decade, to hack the human body.”

The book 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 focuses on one life-changing question:

For all things physical, what are the tiniest changes that produce the biggest results?

So what will this book teach you?

Here are some of the topics covered in the book. Ferriss claims that each can be learned in under 30 minutes.

  • 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

This book is all about helping you get results. There are things in this book that go against everything you know about your body and its potential.

I’m not sure about the 4hr Body. I’ve heard it’s an amazing book. I can vouch for the 4 Hr Workweek, however. That book is absolutely brilliant. Let me know what you think of them. Thanks for the comment!

Ordered this book a while back, picking it up from the post office tomorrow! 4HWW was a tremendous influence on my blog, actually. After reading it, I decided I needed to really optimize my health, fitness, and wellness using as little time, money, and energy as possible. Plus, I’m big on self-experimentation. Looking forward to reading it!

I love 4hww, it has tremendous influence on my work. I became more organized and I work very effective without spending hours checking email and answering clients. I ordered 4hb and waiting for it (last time a book from amazon came for 2 months, hope this will come sooner), I am impatient to read it, because Tim speaks so close to everyday person and we can learn marketing lessons from him too.

Srdjan,

4HWW was great. I probably would have gotten The 4-Hour Body just because I loved 4HWW so much, but after hearing dudes like Mike Geary, Craig Ballantyne, and several other fellow fitness bloggers vouch for it, I picked it up from B&N without even hesitating. Starting on Wed, I’m off work for about 10 days, so I plan on reading the whole thing before the new year. I’m really excited about it and can’t wait to get started! I’m sure it will help give me some ideas for blog posts as well!

@Alykhan
I’m looking forward for my copy to arrive. I can see myself reading it more than once. And I’m sure it’ll give us a lot of things to talk about 🙂

@Rumi
4HWW really opened my eyes when it comes to productivity. I’ve learned how to avoid the little things that really killed my productivity. I hope 4Hr Body has a similar eye-opening effect.

I’ve never heard of a book taking so long to arrive. I hope you don’t face the same issue with this book!

Louis - December 19, 2010

I am reading 4 hour work week right now. What I have read I love so I know once I am done with it I will more than likely order 4 hour body!

Getting more done in less time definitely sounds good to me. That philosophy was at the heart of me dropping all the old bodybuilding dogma I thought was required and finding a more effective, and more fun way to get the body I wanted.

You really don’t need to give up your life to get a great body.

Cinn Fields - December 21, 2010

we had mixed feelings about the “15 minute orgasm” part of the book – I wonder if you’d be better off just reading one of the Bodansky’s books (which Tim cites). I was surprised at the confusion about “15 minute orgasm” vs. “15 minutes to get to orgasm” – all the cited sources [One Taste, Bodansky’s, More University / Lafayette Morehouse] talk about extended orgasm, there are public demonstrations of women in orgasm for an hour given around the San Francisco bay area – which I guess Tim didn’t see. He doesn’t mention that you need to use lubricant!!! and the way he describes it makes it seem like its a procedure you “do to a woman” rather than a ride you both take together, she the wave, you the surfer, two bodies, one orgasm. Hard to know what he was taught vs. what he retained.

Ahmed - December 21, 2010

Definitely a good read, huge book though!

Dave - Not Your Average Fitness Tips - December 21, 2010

Sounds like an interesting read. I’m curious if it can really deliver on the high expectations though. Seems like something I should pick up though…certainly wouldn’t hurt to try!

Alejandro "The Fittest Vegan" - December 21, 2010

I cant wait to get my copy, I ordered in advance as well. 4HWW was awesome I think we can all agree on that, so I look forward to this one!

bloomtofit - December 22, 2010

@Louis
I hope you enjoy both, my friend! Thanks for the comment.

@Michael
I think we all find different ways to apply what we’ve learned from the 4HWW to make our lives, bodies, jobs, etc. more efficient and productive.

I believe that when it comes to getting a great body, you don’t need to put in as much time as most people think. It’s about QUALITY.

Thanks for the comment!

bloomtofit - December 22, 2010

@Cinn Fields
That’s really interesting. I haven’t read the chapter on the 15 min orgasm yet (you can imagine my excitement) but I’ve heard mixed reactions from those who have read it. I’ll let you know my take on it as soon as I read it.

@Ahmed
I don’t mind huge books as long as they’re packed with good stuff!

@Dave
Tim’s first book came out of nowhere (zero expectations) and it really blew everyone out of the water with its uniqueness. This time around, people are expecting as good or better so I’m curious how his new book stands up to the hype.

@Alejandro
Let me know what you think of it when you read it!

Darren@MorePrimeTime.com - December 24, 2010

You’ve got my interest. I want to see what he says about running 5 kilometers to 50 kilometers in 12 weeks. Sounds like an accelerated marathon training schedule.

Jenn of PersonalFitCoach.com - December 24, 2010

Hmm, I am enlightened to hear about both 4HWW and 4HBody. Going to look into both of them. Look forward to your review after you read it.

bloomtofit - December 24, 2010

@Darren
He’s got a lot of crazy techniques that I’m looking forward to trying. I bet there’s a lot our bodies can do that we’re just not aware of. Thanks for the comment!

@Jenn
I’d most definitely recommend 4HWW. It will help you make your work (and life) more productive and efficient. My book has just arrived so I’ve just cracked it open! I’ll have my review ready by the New Year hopefully! Thanks for the comment!

Mike @ Papa Star Health - January 4, 2011

Awesome offer! That’s a good Christmas gift for sure. I have heard he has some pretty out their ideas but it’s probably worth the try. I like the tip Rusty outlined on his blog as well.

bloomtofit - January 7, 2011

@Mike
I think that’s what makes his stuff so interesting – the “out there ideas”. Let me know your thoughts after you get a chance to read it. Thanks for the comment!
