Eddie Hall Looks Unrecognizable in This Throwback Photo

At his peak,
2017 World’s Strongest Man
and all-around funnyman
Eddie “The Beast” Hall
weighed in at more than 440 pounds.
And while a good bit of that was muscle, a lot of it was fat, too.
Since then, he’s
slimmed down to 358 pounds
and even sported
some abs
for a bit. 

Still, the Briton has never been what you could call “lean,”
because lifting
Atlas stones
and pulling trucks on a regular basis requires
being pretty massive. 

That’s why you may be surprised to learn there was once a time
when Hall was not only strong, but also pretty svelte. He recently
uploaded a throwback photo of himself at 16 years old, and you’d
be hard-pressed to recognize him. 

Take a look: 

 

Hall said he weighed 224 pounds in the photo, and it looks like
it was mostly muscle. That’s insane shape for a 16-year-old to be
in, and it proves that Hall has always lived up to his
nickname. 

He now weighs in between 358 and 380 pounds, and is on a mission
to decrease his body fat while maintaining his body weight. Hall
frequently uploads videos of himseld training alongside Irish
comedian Paddy McGuinness and actor/gym owner Martyn Ford,
documenting some absolutely brutal sessions. 

Here’s one where Hall encourages McGuinness through a set of
leg extensions. 

“Every time he moves, he makes noises I have never heard
before,” McGuinness’ wife joked in the comments. “I think
he’s in pain today.” It’s no surprise that working out with the
man who once
deadlifted 500kg (1,102 pounds)
isn’t easy. 

Hall recently starred in the History Channel show The
Strongest Man in History
 along four-time World’s Strongest
Man
Brian Shaw
, Robert Oberst, and Nick Best. The season finale of
the show, which featured the quartet displaying brutish feats of
strengths while trying to break longtime records, recently aired on
the channel.
