In 2016 he set the deadlift world record at 500kg – over 1100 pounds – which he said was one of the most dangerous things he’s ever done.

Same on me, but I had my assumptions on strongmen and now these are completely broken. I really liked Eddie, his determination, his obsession, his sacrifice, and everythign he represents. Good man.

Great,insightful interview credit to Eddie for not holding back and showing his emotions you’ve got to have credit for someone like this due to the sacrifices they go through to achieve their goals they have set out when he started speaking about his nan you could tell how much she meant to him and how eager he wanted to become world’s strongest Man which is what he promised her on her deathbed. Credit to the interviewer for getting the info out of Eddie and letting him speak.

Drexel is the strongest man period. He would’ve won WSM 17′ if he hadn’t broke his back attempting a 1408lb deadlift (no suit) on an elephant bar. This is after a successful 1221lb lift. Sunopsi recorded the entire session and posted it. Drexel Dexter Tensch is the strongest man period.

Watching Eddie, Brian Shaw, Robert Oberst and Nick Best pal around is one thing but seeing a totally open and vulnerable Eddie is by far the best. I would love to see and hoping Brian will interview Brian Shaw as well.

This mental health thing is so real , I myself went through a very bad phase in life due to anxiety and panic attacks and I am a very confident guy , if you are suffering from it go see a psychiatrist, there is nothing wrong in it.

Wow, Eddie Hall…….great Interview. I had one bad moment, it was when Eddie meant, that Arnold is and always was his hero…….inside I was like: fuuuuck, dude…noooooo. There are so many reasons, why arnolds poster is OUT of the Golds Gym LA. For me, Arnold lied….in my very early twenties, I believed his bullshit (u could not just google and youtube in these times, remember…xd)….only train like me, eat and sleep proper etc, no steroids, I am totally clean, that sucker said it that often, I fell for it……and I did it, trained my ass of 5 times a week,… Read more »
