Superhuman Project – Day 2

Superhuman Body

Day 2 of my “Superhuman Project(#SHP), Wednesday, 7th Oct 2015: – I'm feeling excited at the prospects and possibilities that will manifest over time.

Reading a few pages of Tim Ferriss's 4 Hour Body book is opening up my brain to new, more evolved and more efficient methods of making progress towards my body fat percentage goal of (less than) 8% and increased lean muscle mass. Here are the key lessons learnt for day 2:

  • The kettlebell swing – if you could only do one movement the rest of your life, do this!

Still keeping my awareness on the 3 F's – Fun, Flow and Flexibility – I'm finding it easier to make time for yoga, my workouts, reading, and also my freediving training.

Having two boys, 2 years old and 1 year old, and finding it hard to make time has been my limiting story holding me back for far too long. This is where “flow” comes in. I flow with the day and the necessities that comes along with it, and find a way!

Here's the progress for day 2 of the superhuman project.
