Tim Ferriss has become something of a peak performance guru with the release of his bestselling book The 4 hour work week, and people have turned to him for time and stress management tips and advice ever since. Ia recent episode of his podcast, The Tim Ferriss Show, the author answered several listeners’ questions about what his current daily routine looks like and revealed that he has learned to know when “overdoing it” can in fact be a detriment rather than an asset.
It begins each morning with 20 minutes of transcendental meditation, before preparing a coffee or tea. “From that point on, it really depends on the day,” he said. “So I organize my week in a thematic approach, that is to say that instead of taking the five types of activities that I need or that I want to cover each week and spread them out over each day , I tend to have a day dedicated to different types of work. “
“So on Tuesday there will be lots and lots of phone calls, or at least that’s when I’m going to consolidate my phone calls with my team and with other people. So a lot of times I don’t. won’t do any kind of journaling that day, but start walking and talking. So I’ll be in the sun a lot on Tuesday, and so on. So it really depends on the day. There might be some writing after decaffeination. There could be some exercise. “
When it comes to her fitness regimen, Ferriss does one or two 45-minute strength training exercises per week. He keeps his weight training fairly simple, describing it as “for the purpose of preventing injury, first and foremost, not improving performance.” The majority of his exercises come from rock climbing and AcroYoga, which he does twice a week.
Ferriss began this acrobatic wellness practice with his partner during his forties. Each session would involve up to an hour of “inversion practice,” including pear trees and forearms. “Then we do what’s called the L-base, where I’m on my back, holding my girlfriend up with my feet and hands, and we have different roles and responsibilities in that dynamic, and then we let’s do a version of massaging the thighs, often with a pull towards the end of this workout, ”he explains.“ It’s the combination of these sympathetic activations and these parasympathetic exits that I think leads to a great feeling of well-being, physically and emotionally for the rest of the day. “
It complements this push-based AcroYoga work with rock climbing, which primarily focuses on pulling movements. “I find that it tends to balance out, say, the opposing muscle groups, so that you don’t develop, if you approach it in a moderate way, which I am, you don’t develop repetitive stress, pain and injury. that have tormented me for most of my life by the virtue of doing too much or I should say the vice of doing too much, ”he said.“ So even though my body can handle the climbing three or four times a week, I limit myself to twice a week, and that’s fantastic. ”
