Strongman legend Eddie Hall is well-respected in the fitness community for his superhuman strength and athletic abilities. Although he moved on from professional competition years ago, he continued expanding his creative footprint in sporting ventures. In a YouTube video, Hall shared a posing session led by pro coach Emma Heineman ahead of his highly anticipated debut in bodybuilding.
Eddie Hall enjoyed a highly successful career as a strongman athlete. He dominated the UK regional scene in the 2010s and earned his first qualification to the World’s Strongest Man competition in 2012. He racked up several national titles working his way up at the WSM ladder over the next five years. In 2016, Hall created history by becoming the first person to deadlift 500-kg (1,102lbs) and finally secured the coveted WSM title in 2017. He doesn’t compete actively now but serves as a lead ambassador for the sport.
The English star boxed fellow strongman Hafthor Bjornsson in a match billed ‘The Heaviest Boxing Match in History.’ The two titans clashed for six rounds last year with Bjornsson getting the nod on the judges’ scorecards. Although there were talks of another outing, they decided against it. As a result of the loss, Hall was forced to tattoo Thor’s name on his foot.
Hall teamed up with iconic Strongman Brian Shaw for a grueling shoulder workout last November. The former rivals pushed each other in training as Shaw took the lead in guiding Hall through his home gym. Aside from strongman, Hall announced his plans to switch to competitive bodybuilding earlier this year.
The decision to body-build was made possible after Hall witnessed the incredible physiques of reigning four-time Classic Physique Olympia champ Chris Bumstead and former two-time Mr. Olympia Mamdouh ‘Big Ramy’ Elssbiay in December 2022.
‘The Beast’ is furiously training for his next athletic venture. He smashed a heavy chest workout with his son Maximus and influencer Jesse James West a few months ago. Then, Hall joined forces with IFBB Pro bodybuilder Jamie Christian-Johal for a taxing back workout and later reunited for an epic chest workout.
In addition to training, Hall is open about his nutrition. Eddie Hall reflected on eating about 15,000 calories a day to compete at the highest level during his Strongman career. He said his limit was reached after consuming more than 20,000 calories in a single day.
As of late, Hall enlisted the help of legend Jay Cutler for an upper body workout in hopes of adding some much-needed knowledge to his bodybuilding repertoire. The four-time Mr. Olympia praised Hall’s work ethic while offering tips on maximizing the pump.
Eddie Hall learns posing from pro coach ahead of anticipated bodybuilding debut
In his latest undertaking, Eddie Hall shared a posing session where he was guided by professional coach Emma Heineman in preparation for his debut in competitive bodybuilding.
Hall weighed in at 175 kgs (386 pounds) and revealed the front lat spread as his favorite pose. He started with a front-facing pose while Heineman guided him through the maneuvers.
“What I’m finding is, Strongman is just moving A to B as efficiently as possible,” said Hall. “You don’t really think about what muscles you use. With bodybuilding, I’m slowing it down and I’m like right activate this muscle. You can literally feel muscles you haven’t usually used before kick in and they’re just growing like crazy.”
“I actually like the front lat spread.”
Eddie Hall continues to impress by showing off steady physique updates. He collaborated with Men’s 212 legend Flex Lewis for a laborious arm workout session recently. He’s scheduled to captain Team UK for the upcoming 2023 World’s Strongest Nation contest, set for Nov. 18 in Liverpool, England.
