The Tim Ferriss Experiment: Testing Human Limits

#sxsw #Ferriss

This presentation teaches techniques for pushing the human body to its limits, for getting superhuman results without superhuman genetics. It will include some of the most insane takeaways from The Tim Ferriss Experiment TV show, including outtakes and injuries. Examples might include: learning drumming in a week with Stewart Copeland of The Police; learning parkour in one week and destroying yourself; competing in professional poker in Vegas with zero background; combining chess with Brazilian jiu-jitsu to learn both faster; attempting to learn a foreign language in less than a week; etc.
