Eddie Hall has built a reputation for having one of the strongest shoulders in the world throughout his Strongman career. However, it would be easy to assume that he has not retained a lot of power after losing significant amounts of bodyweight for his fight against Hafthor Björnsson. As that boxing match is now a thing of the past, Eddie Hall is back to training with weights. He is still one of the strongest men on the planet, which he proved with his recent training session. On May 12, Eddie Hall shared a 40-rep incline dumbbell press with 40 kilograms (88.2 pounds) in each hand.
Eddie Hall completed all 40 repetitions consecutively without taking even a second to rest between them. He only used wrist wraps to ease the pressure on his wrists. The most noticeable detail about his technique is how much Eddie focused on breathing correctly, as he took a big breath on every rep.
