Ross Edgley is back on the podcast to chat about how to train for anything and everything, anywhere and everywhere!

You might remember Ross from Episode 85 when he came to chat about 30 marathons in 30 days along with various other crazy challenges that he’s done. Ross is a bit of an adventurer and he likes to see how he can push the human body to its absolute limits. In this episode, we chatted about his new book (The World’s Fittest Book: How To Train For Anything & Everything, Anywhere & Everywhere)in which he talks about how he trains along with all the things that he’s learned from interviewing industry pioneers and various world champions.

He also talked about hybrid training; how can you train for an endurance sport whilst getting stronger or how can you get faster but build muscle at the same time. It is cracking episode because you’ll learn how Ross managed to train for these crazy events including swimming for 48 hours non-stop once yet still looking like a powerlifter.
