The Nationwide Geographic channel is streaming an pleasurable sequence “Limitless” starring Chris Hemsworth, about measures we are able to take for wholesome getting old. It’s dramatized by Chris taking up challenges in varied geographic places in every episode. There are additionally background tales of different individuals who exemplify the theme of every episode of their lives. The science behind all of that is well-presented however stored gentle and fascinating. I’ve loved the primary three episodes to this point. My solely criticism is that the second episode doesn’t adequately credit score the work of Wim Hof, who pioneered a few of the cold-water strategies described.
Nevertheless it did introduce me to Ross Edgely who has written a number of books on the science of coaching. I’m at the moment having fun with his The World’s Fittest Ebook, about train science in addition to chronicling a few of his superb (additionally a bit loopy) athletic feats.
