Former World’s Strongest Man Eddie Hall retired from competitive strongman after winning The World’s Strongest Man in 2017.
Eddie Hall is the first man in history to deadlift 500-kg’s which was later broken by rival strongman Hafthor Bjornsson who deadlifted 501 kg’s in his home gym in Iceland in 2019.
The 35-year-old strongman superstar from the UK has tried boxing after retiring from strongman when he took on Hafthor Bjornsson in the boxing ring.
Hafthor and Eddie Hall had bad blood between them after Hafthor accused Eddie Hall of cheating his way to the title in 2017.
Hafthor Björnsson was able to win the title in 2018 after Eddie Hall had retired from the sport.
Both men spent a couple of years preparing for the fight as Eddie Hall first injured himself close to the fight which had to be postponed but the fight finally took place last year.
The fight was entertaining, to say the least Hafthor proved himself to be the better boxer by beating Eddie Hall quite convincingly.
Since the fight both men have made announcements that they are done with boxing, Hafthor Bjornsson revealed that the passion wasn’t there, he didn’t have fun doing it.
Hafthor is back lifting weights and has already shown that he still got it by beating his former world record in the weight over bar.
Eddie Hall has taken a different path and wants to become a competitive bodybuilder a decision that has left many guys wondering if it’s the right sport for him.
Greg Doucette has already made a video on Eddie Hall’s bodybuilding journey and doesn’t believe that Eddie Hall has the best genetics or structure to become a good competitive bodybuilder.
Greg said that even though Eddie Hall has a lot of muscle mass he just doesn’t have the optimal genetics to become a bodybuilder.
However, that will not stop a man like Eddie Hall that has a ton of dedication and time to become the best version of himself possible.
We have seen guys such as legendary strongman John Paul Sigmarsson (RIP) who used to compete in bodybuilding in between strongman competitions so it’s not unheard of.
On top of that Eddie Hall isn’t even competing in boxing or strongman anymore so he can put all of his efforts into becoming a bodybuilding.
Eddie Hall has a good base for starting bodybuilding as he already has a lot of mass and strength, he also knows how to train right, which will be a huge advantage going forward.
Recently Eddie Hall shared with his fans his bodybuilding chest workout routine as he is starting to train like a bodybuilder, Eddie has not revealed any bodybuilding show he is going to participate in.
It seems like Eddie Hall is going to get himself in decent shape before nailing down a date for a competition and it will be very interesting to see how he will be able to transform his body into a bodybuilders physique.
