The mental game | Strongman Swimming E3


Strongman Swimming documents Ross Edgley’s incredible attempt to swim 40km with a 100lb tree tied to him between the Caribbean islands of St Lucia and Martinique.

Training the mind to undertake a challenge such as this is just as important as ensuring your body is in peak condition. So Ross visited the Royal Marines in their Lympstone, England, headquarters to learn from elite troops about how he could improve and maintain his mental wellbeing while swimming for hours at once.
