World's Strongest Man Champion Eddie Hall Passed Out Leg Pressing 1,000 Kg

Eddie Hall might have been crowned as the World's Strongest Man once, but the English weightlifter still passed out whilst leg pressing 1,000 kg.

Hall, who is set to face rival Hafthor Bjornsson in a boxing fight in September, won the crown as World's Strongest Man back in 2017, after being named Britain's Strongest for the previous four years.

The 33-year-old is also well known for his YouTube channel, where he shows off his ridiculous training sessions, that no normal person would be able to live with.

Even Hall struggles with his own training, as one video from 2019 showed, when he actually passed out in the middle of the session.

In the video, Hall actually soiled himself doing the leg press, went to wipe himself down and then returned to break his personal best, whilst passing out. In fairness I'd sh*t myself doing this too.

Hall has an intense rivalry with his upcoming boxing opponent Bjornsson, who is well known as 'The Mountain' from Game of Thrones, and called the Icelander's boxing debut 'a load of sh*t.'

Speaking after the 32-year-old faced Irish cruiserweight Steve Ward in a three-round exhibition in January, Hall was scathing of the performance.

"Do you want the God's honest truth? He didn't land a single punch in three rounds," the Englishman said on YouTube.

"Anyone with any boxing tenacity about them will know that was the biggest load of s**t that has probably ever happened in boxing.

"That Steve Ward evidently laid off."

The pair's rivalry surrounds the World's Strongest Man competition in 2017, when Hall beat Bjornsson to the title, with the man from Iceland claiming he was 'robbed' of the title.

The 2018 champion was docked a point and afterwards wouldn't shake the victor's hand on the podium.

Afterwards Hall 'exposed' the runner up for his 'cheating', saying he wasn't bending his knee during a lift, and it's just spiralled out of control since, leading to their fight in September.
