“Limitless With Chris Hemsworth” Exclusive Clip
In an exclusive clip from the premiere, we see Hemsworth meeting with Dr. Modupe Akinola, a social psychologist who examines the science of stress.
The episode is titled “STRESS-PROOF” but it looks like Chris is far from that notion as he eyes a 900-foot-tall skyscraper. He’s been challenged to walk along a crane off the edge of the building and Chris admits that he’s scared to death.
Luckily for him, Dr. Akinola has the tools to walk him through the challenge and assures him that he’s in good hands while they explore how we can use physical and psychological techniques to protect ourselves against the impact chronic stress has on our lives.
“This isn’t about the feat of it, this is about preparing you to be able to manage wand be present with the emotions that you’re feeling right now,” says Dr. Akinola. She adds that Chris has to train his mindset to embrace the stress so that it won’t “kill him later.”

Chris is MUCH braver than us, but would you push yourself to the limit like him?
