Summary
Our ancestors crossed deserts, mountains, and oceans-- feats of endurance that now seem impossible without modern technology. Can we hack our bodies and use the environment to stimulate our inner biology? Carney explores the true connection between the mind and the body and reveals the science that allows us to push past our perceived limitations
Summary
Every year, millions of people forgo traditional gyms and push the limits of human endurance by doing boot camp style workouts in seemingly raw conditions. These extreme athletes train in Cross Fit boxes, compete in Tough Mudders and challenge themselves in Spartan races. They share a unifying ideology: the comforts of the modern age have made us weak and the key to human power is to recreate the original environmental conditions of our ancestors to regain our lost evolutionary strength
