In general, I think it would be safe to assume that we, as a people have become weak. The average man or woman seems more likely to face obesity, autoimmune disease, and an overall reduction in happiness and fulfillment.
As we continue to seek a life of ease and comfort, it is becoming painfully obvious that our quest for perpetual comfort might be the very thing that will kill us.
My guest today, New York Times Bestselling author, Scott Carney, shares with us how to introduce environmental stressors, how to build up more resilience, and the strategies he uses for making himself a stronger human being.

Men, I am honored to introduce you to my guest today, Scott Carney. I came across Scott’s work while connecting with another podcast Alumni, Scott Keneally.
He recently wrote a book titled, What Doesn’t Kill Us, and, as I read the premise of the book which is how Scott used Wim Hof’s methods to improve his level of health, I knew he was someone I needed to have on the show.
What I like most about Scott’s work is that he is an investigative journalist who set out to expose Wim Hof as a fraud.
He talks about that and how, rather than exposing Wim Hof, he ended up reaping the benefits of his work to lose weight, and build up resiliency using environmental training.
In the meantime, he climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro in shorts and completed the Tough Guy, one of the world’s most difficult – and coldest – obstacle course races in the world.
He’s here to talk about how he did it.
- Why environmental stressors are an important component of overall health
- Why society has shifted from exposing ourselves to the environment
- Whether or not we’re healthier than our ancestors
- Strategies you can use to encorporate environmental stressors in your life
- Vasoconstriction and the ability to intentionally keep yourself warm
- The symptoms of lack of environmental training
- Using environmental training in the fight against autoimmune disease
“[Environmental training] is something humans used to do and we should still do doing it.” Tweet That— Scott Carney

Gentlemen, we are geting close on giving you the last reminder for The Uprising. It looks like we’re near capactiy which I’m excited about but, if you’re on the fence about attending, now is the time to get off the fence and register.
This is our 3 1/2 experience in the mountains of Southern Utah.
This is an experience design to test you mentally, physically, and emotionally and I can tell you, based on last year’s event, we did just that.
There’s a lot of men running around feeling stuck, feeling as if they’re in a rut. It is my goal to get you out of that rut however we can. If you feel that way or if you feel like you’ve reached a plateua in your relationships, your health, your business, or any other area of life, it’s time to shake things up!
You’re going to be learning from me and some other incredible men including a Navy SEAL and, at the end of the day, you’re going to walk away from the event with a new sense of clarity, confidence, and purpose to tackle your biggest objectives.
