Superhuman Project – Day 9

Day 9 of my “Superhuman Project(#SHP), Wednesday 14th Oct 2015:- What an awesome day!

Tim Ferriss's 4 Hour Body book lesson/s of the day:

  • Use hyper-abbreviated training to compensate for mediocre recuperative abilities. This requires the application of self-control to do less! We are so conditioned to believe we need to do more to get more. This is not true in all cases and contexts.

My 3 F's – Fun, Flow and Flexibility helped me squeeze in a super productive freediving training session during coaching lunch break, which resulted in me setting a new personal best.

Here's the progress for day 9 of my superhuman project.

Measurements Recorded (on 13th Oct 2015)

*Note: I've decided to take measurements once per week, so the next set of measurements will be on the 20th.

Biceps (Left / Right) – 12.2 in / 12.2 in

Waist – 35.5 in

Hips – 39 in

Thighs (Left / Right) – 22 in / 22 in

Total Inches – 142.9 inches

*Note: These measurements were more accurate as I got help to measure the hard to measure areas like biceps. And, I began using specific points in the middle of each thigh to take measurements for consistency.
