Swimmers Don’t Skip Leg Day | Ross Edgley


During 2019 I spent 157 days (and 1,780 miles) swimming around Great Britain. Spending 12 hours in the water per day, I essentially skipped leg day for 6 months and so often get asked about how I’ve been able to rehab my legs and adjust to life back on land. Which is why I wanted to make this video for you guys showing how my lower body conditioning is void of any specific strength and conditioning and more focused on “general” stress, stimuli, force and resistance.
