Most bodybuilders have suffered injury at some point in their careers. Pain and gain is all part of the sport. And Eddie Hall is no different. Despite his nickname, the Beast isn’t bulletproof. In fact, he suffered a nasty injury soon after he was crowned World’s Strongest Man in 2017 and six months prior to becoming Britain’s Strongest Man in 2018, dislocating his hip during a particularly heavy squat sesh.

Eddie described the injury as “the most pain I had ever endured in my life... but so worth it.” Want to see what exercise nearly managed to take The Beast down? Keep on reading.


Eddie did eventually decide to retire from competitive strongman training due to health concerns, but not before he got a few more wins under his belt first.

And this isn't the first time Eddie has shown off his intimidating strength. Back in November 2021, Eddie threw it back to his strongman days when he managed to complete seven reps of an incline dumbbell bench press with 100kg in each hand. Oh, but he did mention it must have been a de-load week...


Take home message

Eddie Hall has some inspiring motivation to push his body to its limits. And even though not every set works out as expected, his determination to always recover and come back stronger is incredible.

We don’t recommend lifting this kind of weight (without proper experience and training that is), but we do recommend taking a leaf out of the Beast’s book when it comes to self-determination.

Eddie is now turning his attention to boxing in what's been dubbed as 'The Heaviest Fight in History' with fellow strongman Hafthor Bjornsson. We're still waiting on a date but we cannot wait to see this fight.
