Goodbye land... After 3 solid (and savage) days at @gymshark lifting club I’ve decided to return to my natural habitat 🔱 What you training & where you training it this weekend? 😊Also YES I talk a lot about fusing swimming, stamina AND strength training in the NEW book #TheArtOfResilience (see link in bio for your copy)

rossedgley

What’s your favourite leg exercise? 💪🏽 After skipping leg day for 157 days during the #GreatBritishSwim I am making up for lost time/sessions down @gymshark lifting club 😉

rossedgley

The MOTHER of ALL leg sessions just went down at @gymshark with the MONUMENTAL man legend @ryanjterry who’s now 4 weeks out from Olympia! NEW video coming soon (subscribe through link in bio) but I guarantee NO one is working as hard as him, the dude is a straight up savage under the barbell 💪🏽Camera 🎥 Genius by my brobarian @craigmwilliams 🔱Tag your BEST training partner

rossedgley

Barefoot 30km breakfast? 😊 Hands are still in pieces from my (failed) gymnastic debut, so using the opportunity to clock some miles with the lighter frame 😊 Using @vivobarefoot methodology & wearing nothing but a smile @gymshark shorts 🔱

rossedgley

Body Goals? (Part 2) 💪🏽 One of the most important covers I've ever done! Complete with scars, sea ulcers and a layer of insulating "ocean fat" and beard, I'm SO insanely appreciative to @menshealthau for telling the story of the #GreatBritishSwim with 100% transparency and broadcasting the message "Make your body an instrument and not an ornament" into the world 🐳 There's of course nothing wrong with sculpted abs (I've since lost fat to become a better/lighter runner again) and I'm VERY proud of my @thetimes cover (which were taken months after arriving on land)... but (for me) I'm INCREDIBLY proud of THIS particular body since it was this one that swam 1,780 miles over 157 days around Great Britain 🔱 Tag friends and training partners and let me know what YOUR training for this year 💪🏽 This is also a chapter in the NEW book #TheArtOfResilience entitled “Fast & Fragile vs Slow & Strong” (see link in bio to pre order your copy) 😊

rossedgley

Body Goals? 🤷‍♂️This time last year I was 105kg of pure “sea bulk”. I was heavy and durable and I was SO incredibly proud of that body since it’s the one that swam 1,780 miles around GB🇬🇧 Today I’m 90kg. I’m lighter, leaner and faster and equally proud I’m running (and swimming) my fastest 10km 💪🏽 My point (again) is: Make your body an instrument NOT an ornament and celebrate any form of “athletic aesthetic” that comes from doing what you love 😊 From the GIANT quads of rugby players to the broad shoulders of swimmers 🔱 With that said, what’s your favourite body part from your sport?

rossedgley

Swimmer vs Gymnast🥊 After TWO years the rematch is on 😉 NEW vlog coming soon (with my FULL gymnastics FAIL) don’t forget to subscribe through the link in my bio! Who do you think won? 📷 by brobarian @jamesappletonphotography

'Racing Weight' (Part 2) 😊 In the NEW book #TheArtOfResilience (pre order your copy through the link in the bio) we address how endurance is (sometimes) LESS about fitness and MORE about managing physics (tag someone who’d like this) This is because studies that show a force of up to three times body weight can be exerted on the human foot while running. For example, a person weighing 670 newtons (150 pounds) can experience forces of up to seven times their body weight or 4700 newtons (1000 pounds). The greatest force is experienced on the forefoot phase of a stride when the whole width of the forefoot absorbs the surge of power that propels the foot off the ground which is something I speak about A LOT in my @vivobarefoot science seminars 😊 Similar reports state that the maximum force can equal up to three-and-a-half times body weight. Therefore, a person weighing 670 newtons (150 pounds) would experience a force of up to 2300 newtons (525 pounds). Over the course of the day, these forces can accumulate to millions of newtons (hundred or thousands of tons). Therefore (again) understand endurance is SO often less about fitness and MORE about managing physics 💪🏽 Huge thanks to the @gymshark media ninjas for this image AND allowing me to talk sports science ALL day on camera 🙏

Public apology ☺️ IF your gym has a tyre axle press I WILL abandon my entire workout, become distracted... and try to curl it haha 😂 Tag someone who’s easily distracted in the gym 😊 HUGE thank you to @corefitnessandwellness (in Chester) for letting me train today as my tour around the UK filming continues 🔱Next stop the NEW @gymshark gym at HQ 😉

rossedgley

Yup 😊 That happened 🔱 An advanced copy of my brother’s second book #TheFearBubble @antmiddleton 💪🏽 I cannot stress how much the teachings and theories contained within these pages helped me during every mile, tide and jellyfish sting of the #GreatBritishSwim (specifically chapter 6 “The fear of suffering”) Also the stories are INSANE since he didn’t just climb Everest... he SURVIVED it 🏔 Published in September (but available to pre order now) I feel this could be one of the greatest books ever written when it comes to fear coping strategies with a bulletproof military mindset 💪🏽 So, so proud brother... thank you SO much for writing this for the world 🌍

rossedgley

‘Racing Weight’ 💪🏽 (tag training partners) Body composition (and weight) is SO often overlooked in sport & adventure, yet research published by the European Journal of Applied Physiology and Occupational Physiology examined the influence carrying 10kg, 20kg and 30kg of weight had on the cardiorespiratory system (heart and lungs). After measuring oxygen uptake, heart rate and pulmonary ventilation they found, “Each kilogram of extra weight increases oxygen uptake with 33.5 ml/min, heart rate with 1.1 beats/min and pulmonary ventilation with 0.6 l/min.” THAT’S ONE EXTRA KILOGRAM 😊 Therefore IF training for performance, don’t underestimate the value of manipulating your weight and body composition 🔱 The reason I’m looking a little leaner and lighter these days as me, @gymshark @vivobarefoot @theproteinworks plot and plan athletic adventures 😊

rossedgley

Drop sets for DAYS 💪🏽I talk A LOT about stress & stimuli in the new book #TheArtOfResilience (see link in bio) since to quote the great Muhammad Ali “I only start counting when it starts hurting because they’re the only ones that count” 🔱 Tag training partners & BOSS your weekend’s training 😊(Also) I’m getting good at this thing people call “clothes” and becoming less feral 😉 Thanking you @gymshark & @vivobarefoot 💪🏽 Also BIG thanks to @energiefitnessexeter who let me train so early 🙏 before today’s swim 🏊‍♂️and my brobarian @scottatkins91 for his photography skills midset 😊

rossedgley

On the road again (Devon bound) 😊 But getting to visit some incredible places... out of interest what’s everyone’s favourite places to train, run, swim or explore? (Need suggestions) ALSO yes, that’s right 😊 I am wearing clothes, haha 😂 As a swimmer I’ve spent most of my life wearing nothing but trunks and a smile 😊 BUT now on land I am trying my best to integrate into society and become less naked and feral thanks to @gymshark 🦁#RhinoNeck

rossedgley

Run fast and/or run far... but JUST run 😊 I will be addressing the topics of overtraining and the habituation of stress in the new book #TheArtOfResilience (see link in bio to order yours and tag friends who train HARD) to create a paradigm shift in what we think the body and mind is capable of... but one thing I spoke about at a recent @vivobarefoot seminar was the Bulgarian Olympic lifting team who used this high intensity, high volume, no rest day method of training. In America John Broz popularized the Bulgarian Method when coaching one of his lifters by the name of Pat Mendes to squat 800 pounds (completely beltless) at only 20 years old. The same can be found in endurance sports too. The Greater Boston Track Club of the 1970's and 1980's were incredible. The mileage and duration of training was unmatched! They loved running so much they didn't even stop to contemplate overtraining, rest days or the idea of fatigue. Bill Rodgers (4-time Boston Marathon Champ) said "We had fun with it. It wasn't a grind." As a result, by the early 80's the Greater Boston Track Club had half a dozen guys who could run a 2:12 marathon time 💪🏽 Massive thank you @knowjack for your photography genius (and mountain goat endurance) for taking these pictures 🙏

rossedgley

The Banana 🍌Breakfast of Champions haha 😂 649 was the final record tally from the #GreatBritishSwim but the new book #TheArtOfResilience has an entire chapter devoted to the key role food plays in fuelling fortitude 💪🏽 BIG THANK YOU to everyone who’s pre ordered (through the link in my bio) LOTS more competitions & giveaways coming to repay your kindness 🙏So tag someone who’d love this book 😊

rossedgley

New Book #TheArtOfResilience details how to build a bulletproof body (resistant to fatigue & injury), details my strength training for the #GreatBritishSwim AND delves deeper into how strength & stamina CAN co-exist 😊 See link in bio to PRE ORDER your copy (USA coming soon), tag training partners and let me know what else you want me to cover 🔱 Also arranging with @gymshark and @vivobarefoot training days for EVERYONE who pre orders 💪🏽

rossedgley

Back home and BACK to the book #TheArtOfResilience (see link in bio to pre order your copy) 😊 Never knew I pulled such strange faces when writing haha 😂 #Gymshark

Ice (recovery) GAINZ 🥶 (Tag training partners) taken from #TheWorldsFittestBook (see LINK IN BIO) “Yes, this is entirely contradictory to the motherly advice given to you as a kid when you were wrapped in a scarf, hat and gloves to fend off Jack Frost. However, a paper published in the European Journal of Applied Physiology and Occupational Physiology found that cold weather can trigger our body’s ‘fight or flight’ response which results in an increase in lymphocytes. Lymphocytes are the body’s cells that fight off disease so having more of them during flu season is a welcome physiological change when training so hard” 🔱 BIG thank you to @lborosport and @ben.staniforth for the cold hospitality and of course my brobarians @enahm_hof @iceman_hof and @b4rtos 🔱 Also we hope to cover recovery strategies/optimisation in the next @gymshark seminar/tour 💪🏽

rossedgley

Training & Travelling 😊 I’m all over the country filming at the moment BUT hugely grateful for the gym-based hospitality from HEROES at @lborosport (Loughborough) @grafthaus (Leeds) and @frontline_fitness_2019 (Grantham) who kindly opened their doors to me. Was it optimal with little/no sleep (recovery) & less than ideal nutrition? No ☹️ Was it better than nothing? ABSOLUTELY 😃 In summary, understand Reality vs Optimal and get it done by any means necessary 🔱 Also EPIC sharing a barbell with my brothering @alex_brooker who’s got some INSANE challenges on the horizon 😉 More coming soon on this 😊

rossedgley

Thank you SO much🙏Honorary Doctorate for Sports Science, Floating and Eating 😉 #GreatBritishSwim 🔱 A MASSIVE honour to share a graduation with so many academic BEASTS 🎓 and also to share this day with Mama & Papa Edgley and @hestersabery And remember, “You don’t always need a plan if you have enough passion”

rossedgley

Back in the motherland of @lborosport with The Bearded Bromethius @antmiddleton 🔱 Lifting barbells & BURGERS 🍔 ... in that order 😊 Tag your training/eating partner 🔱

Start the week STRONG and at SPEED 💪🏽 Taken from #TheWorldsFittestBook (GET YOUR COPY THROUGH LINK IN BIO) "Speed can make you strong! The stretch-shortening cycle used for “Shock Training” forms only a small part of Ballistic Resistance Training. Ballistic training is a type of weight-lifting characterized by movements in which the athlete tries to apply the maximal force to the resistance with the goal of lifting, moving or projecting it as quickly as they can. This is where the possibilities extend far beyond improving your vertical jump (with the utmost respect to Verkhoshansky) and this is where things become really interesting. This is because if you consider every time you perform a conventional squat or bench your body naturally decelerates at the top of the movement. In fact, it’s believed in a one repetition maximum lift, as much as 24% of the lift time is spent decelerating. For a lift at 80% of your one repetition maximum deceleration can increase to as much as 52%. Even if you perform them quickly (‘speed reps’) the speed decreases at the end of the concentric motion. It’s a protective mechanism put in place by our joints that stops our shoulders from becoming detached from our bodies during quick bench press. Ballistic training virtually eliminates this deceleration Tag friends and training partners and let’s have a STRONG start to the week 🔱 Images from an EPIC (and brutal) day’s filming with @gymshark 😊 We’ve some amazing training videos to follow on this shortly so stay tuned #Gymshark 🦈Huge thanks to @capacityfunctionalfitness for the hospitality 😊

rossedgley

“Gym” for the weekend 😊 Sorry I’m so quiet on here, filming an EPIC project that will be revealed soon 🔱

rossedgley

Build (tiny) forgotten muscles (tag training partners) 😊 Taken from the teachings of our latest @vivobarefoot photoshoot & filming tutorial at the @thevvagon “Imagine if you put your leg in a cast for 6 months and didn’t use it. What do you think would happen? Yes, the muscles would shrink and shrivel and with it so would your strength and functionality. Basically what I experienced during the #GreatBritishSwim 🐳 This is all because of something called muscular atrophy and it basically means if we don’t use our muscles they waste away. Well our feet come loaded with tiny muscles, tendons and a natural arch that acts like a spring when we run. When they’re firing and functioning they quite literally put a spring in our step. But what do you think happens when we wrap our feet in big, clumsy shoes? Yes, you guessed it, your feet experience this same form of atrophy. This is why — when studying “intrinsic foot muscle strength” — scientists from the Shanghai University of Sport found running barefoot or in minimalist shoes, “Makes greater use of the spring-like function of the longitudinal arch and intrinsic muscle… thereby strengthening the foot.” 📷 taken by my brobarian @knowjack as I took the @vivobarefoot Primus Lites and the new @gymshark Hyper Sport shorts for a test drive 😊

Today's training: hill sprints to recalibrate the mind & perception to pain (tag someone who should read this). Inspired by Emil Zátopek (considered to be the greatest runner of the 20th century) he's best known for winning 3 gold medals at the 1952 Summer Olympics in Helsinki (5k, 10k and marathon). But the reason Zátopek is a hero of mine is because his success had little to do with his running technique, but rather his unparalleled work ethic and resilience to pain. He famously said, “It's at the borders of pain and suffering that the men are separated from the boys. Essentially, we distinguish ourselves from the rest. If you want to win something, run the 100 meters. If you want to experience something, run a marathon." What Zátopek understood is training expands the capabilities of the muscles and heart but also recalibrate the brains horizons and perceptions to pain. This is based on research based on the European Journal of Physiology who found high intensity training does not change your pain sensitivity (the point at which you notice pain), but can increase pain tolerance (how long you're willing to endure pain) 🔱 HUGE thank you to @knowjack my running brobarian for the image & the @vivobarefoot team for the impromptu session at the @thevvagon 😊

rossedgley

The BEST thing about @gymshark events is sharing ideas, theories and philosophies in training 😊 This is because I’ve often said “There are many ways to get fitter, stronger and leaner. You shouldn’t discriminate against any of them or favor one. As soon as you do, you close your mind and limit your potential” which is why training with the MASSIVE man hero @ryanjterry in a bodybuilding-centric workout was INCREDIBLE! Yes, he’s won countless titles and yes, he’s appeared on hundreds of fitness covers BUT (in my opinion) his biggest achievement is an unparalleled understanding of manipulating, tweaking and tailoring his body composition! NEW video of the session coming soon 😊

rossedgley

THANK YOU SO MUCH 🙏 I’m maybe the most “feral” member of the @gymshark family (and this was my first event so I was so nervous) but it meant A LOT that SO many people attended my sports science seminar (complete with lettuce eating competitions, salt tongue and jellyfish, haha) 🔱 So just wanted to post a quick message of sheer gratitude to everyone I hugged and spoke to over the last 2 days🙏 #Gymshark

rossedgley

Use social media... do NOT let social media “use” you 😊 The @gymshark event in Manchester was INCREDIBLE and I got to meet some IMMENSE humans, but one thing @noelmack_ said about the event (that really resonated with me) was how social media played a key role in creating this tribe and collective that formed under one roof for 2 days to share ideas, theories and philosophies in fitness! Personal hero of mine? Jonah! See link in bio to see my little Broseidon and why I almost cried 😊

rossedgley

Yesterday was EPIC! So many IMMENSE humans under one roof at @gymshark Manchester 😊Cannot for today! In the meet ‘n’ greet area 2pm and then my talk is 3pm on the MAIN stage! Highlight today was sharing a seminar with the MASSIVE man hero @obi_vincent one of the most genetically gifted humans ever created 😊 Training session of MASS proportions imminent with him 😉 To everyone I spoke to, hugged and ate ice cream with 😊 thank you SO much for coming 🙏Photos by my brobarians @andyhillocksmedia and @kieronwatson_photography

rossedgley

Marathon for breakfast? Getting the miles back in the legs and needed a break from the book #TheArtOfResilience so took the new @gymshark Hyper Sport range for a test drive! It was SO hot 🥵 but happy to report the fabric was SO light and absorbent... cannot wait for next week when we test the range in the lab. V02 test anyone? 🤢 (eek) Yes, it will be filmed haha 😂 #BeTheFuture #Hypersport #gymshark

rossedgley

Taking you behind the scenes of my FIRST EVER @Gymshark shoot in my NEW video (subscribe through the link in the bio) complete with barefoot, car pulling, rope climb tree-athlons, haha 😊 The final video received over 1 million views (and the comments were INCREDIBLE and INSANELY appreciated) but I LOVE this video because it shows you the media genius (and heroics) of the Gymshark team and how they worked SO hard (crossing lakes, scaling mountains and climbing trees) to capture the training of my past athletic adventures. It was also great for me to get real nostalgic and reflect on training methods I've used in the past with a humbling lesson in sports science (and the Law of Specificity) at the end (taken directly from #TheWorldsFittestBook chapter 4) Also YES, this is a sign of what's to come as we assemble TheWorld's Fittest Media Team at Gymshark HQ to plot and plan athletic adventures that will make these look like a warm up 🔱 MASSIVE thank you to @ollysmith.esq @thomwilliams_ @jasondowling23 @sarahmarie_creative THE ENTIRE @gymshark team who you see in the video (who I will try and find and tag) and of course @jamesappletonphotography For the behind the scenes videos 🙏

THANK YOU 🙏 For the messages & being so understanding about why I’ve been so quiet on social media recently! 100,000 words written so far (writing 18 hours a day) since I’m determined to make #TheArtOfResilience a BRILLIANT book I believe the industry needs (see link in bio to pre order your copy) 🔱

rossedgley

The NEW book #TheArtOfResilience is looking AMAZING (so proud) which means I will now be sharing extracts, research and references (AND launching MORE competitions & giveaways for those who've pre ordered through the link in the bio) Taken from the first draft (tag friends and training partners), "The best athletes are so often the hardest working. But few raised the bar in terms of work ethic than the Bulgarian Olympic Lifting team. Their durability to train became world-renowned. This is because despite limited resources and a poor economic condition this small country ― with a population only slightly bigger than New York ― produced a team of weightlifters whose strength would become legendary. All under the tutelage of Ivan Abadjiev, who took over as head coach in 1968, Bulgarian athletes achieved things that were previously thought to be impossible. How? In short, the gruelling Bulgarian Training System involved lifting close to your maximum weight, in a select number of exercises, every single day, 365 days of the year, for up to 8 hours a day. All under the watchful eye of an expert coach who is constantly monitoring your recovery, your strengths, your weaknesses whilst continually making adjustments to your training Crazy? Well, 12 Olympic Gold medallists and 57 world champions say otherwise. Also, it wasn’t just the Bulgarian team who used this high intensity, high volume, no rest day method of training. In America John Broz popularized the Bulgarian Method when coaching one of his lifters by the name of Pat Mendes to squat 800 pounds (completely beltless) at only 20 years old. The same can be found in endurance sports too. The Greater Boston Track Club of the 1970's and 1980's were incredible. The mileage and duration of training was unmatched! They loved running so much they didn't even stop to contemplate overtraining, rest days or the idea of fatigue. Bill Rodgers (4-time Boston Marathon Champ) said "We had fun with it. It wasn't a grind." As a result, by the early 80's the Greater Boston Track Club had half a dozen guys who could run a 2:12 marathon time. So, what was their key to their success? The answer is: The Habituation of Stress

rossedgley

One of THE most epic events I’ve been to all year... the @vivobarefoot SwimRun in Devon (England) 😊 Covering MILES of coastline (and caves) there were some HEROIC swims from people in some very tricky tides... pushing their perceived limits FAR further than they thought possible... just an honour to witness and support 🔱 📷 by @tomjoyphoto

rossedgley

Never stop learning 😊 Waking up today to SO MANY kind messages from the @Gymshark video (THANK YOU) but wanted to be 100% honest and say I've never been a good (elite) runner and am still learning. Take a look at this image taken from the lab, based on the work of Dr Arthur Steindler, he defines a kinetic chain" as "A combination of several successively arranged joints constituting a complex motor unit." Put simply, how all your joints and movements work together during certain movements. From this picture you can see my body angle is good leaning forward, forefoot striking to absorb impact and carry on forward motion, (semi) good range of motion at the hip (but tight from all the marathons since my driving leg is not moving back beyond the middle of my body) also moving in a slightly vertical motion (caused by a lower range of motion at your hip) which is forcing my upper body to rotate more, my elbow to raise and essentially not move forward as efficiently as possible (slightly wasted energy). Basically, for everyone who's kindly following me from the @Gymshark video know that I will never claim to be perfect, but will always try to be honest since all my books and athletic adventures are done without ego, but with a goal to further our understanding of human potential (sometimes to raise money for charity too 😊) and I massively appreciate everyone who follows and shares this ethos & of course the #GymShark media team for allowing me to broadcast my training theories and philosophies 🔱

rossedgley

Locked in the lab #TheArtOfResilience Sorry I've been quiet (and unable to respond to messages and emails recently), I'm determined to repay the kindness of everyone who's already pre ordered their copy of the NEW book (see link in bio) so it means locking myself away to write and research all day (every day) until I produce the book I want (and I think the industry needs). Now 100,000+ words and FAR from finished, this is going to be AMAZING 🔱 Tag friends and training partners since there will be competitions and giveaways with @gymshark @vivobarefoot @dryrobe and @theproteinworks coming soon for ALL those who’ve pre ordered 😊

Building a ‘bullet proof’ body with the physio genius (and HENCHEST forearms on the seven seas) @jeffrossphysio from @harrisandross Love this man 🔱 He nursed my shoulders the entire way around the #GreatBritishSwim and with more adventures planned, I wanted to check in for a full body assessment (as you can tell from my face, not all that enjoyable, haha) 😂
