Former Strongman competitor Eddie Hall is getting a taxing workout ahead of his blockbuster boxing match with Hafthor Björnsson. Recently, Hall shared a video detailing his strength and conditioning program seven weeks out from the big fight.
Eddie Hall is the 2017 World’s Strongest Man. In addition to securing the WSM title, Hall has also captured titles in the UK’s Strongest Man and England’s Strongest Man a number of times. While his work as a Strongman is on the backburner now, Hall always came into competition prepared to give it one-hundred percent effort.
After Eddie Hall suffered a bicep injury, his fight against Björnsson was temporarily put on hold. The two Strongman-turned-boxers have steadily improved their physiques to facilitate their transition into a new sport. As of this writing, the venue is set for Las Vegas, NV.
While Hall suffered a setback, Björnsson has already tasted what it’s like to compete in “the sweet science”. In fact, “The Mountain” made his foray into the boxing ring last year with a TKO victory in his first professional fight against Devon Laratt. With time dwindling away, it appears both competitors are priming their bodies for combat.
Eddie Hall Shares Strength & Conditioning Workout for Boxing
Looking to make gains before the showdown with the 2018 World’s Strongest Man, Eddie Hall shared his ‘Full Boxing Strength Session’ on his YouTube channel. It would appear that Hall is suggesting the fight will take place in late March.
“The fight is going to be announced very soon. So, we’re roughly seven weeks until the fight, so strength and conditioning is on top of my list. I want to stay big and strong. So yeah, today is going to be a good shoulder hit, a good leg hit, good torso hit, everything really.” Eddie Hall shared.
