The 2017 World’s Strongest Man Eddie Hall is hardly recognised after shedding 60 pounds of body fat.

Heavyweight competitors are famous for their big sizes. Eddie is not an exception. Massive 6’3″ weighing in around 410-440 pounds during competition season lifter looks like changing up his philosophy.

The British strongman shared via Instagram that he took his weight from 430 to a lean 373 pounds. In order to achieve such results, he took up cardio sessions.

He’s been doing cardio five times every week that included: boxing, cycling, swimming, and HIIT land training, in addition to the four 2-3 hours of weightlifting sessions.

“169.5kg / 373lbs. Been training really hard recently and I’m mega fired and hungry for success… “

In an interview after winning the 2017 World’s Strongest Man title, Hall told Sports360: “I’m only 6’3” and put a lot of extra pressure on his body to win the WSM at the body weight of 440 pounds,” claiming he isn’t big.

“It was so stressful, and I put a lot of pressure on my body to win the World’s Strongest Man, I’m only 6’3, and I achieved a body weight of 440 pounds.”

“To put it blunt—if I stay at that weight for so long, I’m going to kill myself. That’s why I’ve had to step it down a peg and lose a bit of weight.”

Eddi Hall was also quick to dismiss the idea of a going back to WSM, saying: “To go back and potentially come second or third would damage me.”

“Why would I go back and risk that reputation? I’ve won it, let’s walk away at the top and live the legacy, be a legend.”
