Eddie Hall Trades Punches With “Britain’s Fittest Man” Ross Edgley

Eddie Hall and Ross Edgley test their ab strength in recent training collaboration.

2017 World’s Strongest Man Eddie Hall and ultra marathon swimmer Ross Edgley teamed up for some epic training. During the session, the two traded punches to the midsection for a bit of old fashioned body conditioning.

After getting injured back in July, Eddie Hall was forced to put his long anticipated battle against rival Hafthor Bjornsson on hold. It truly was disappointing as both men did a great job to hype up the event. It didn’t hurt that the two had some genuine bad blood as well. That always adds a little bit of spice to the proceeds. But while he may have been unable to box Bjornsson, Hall would do his best to heal up, striking up some very interesting deals along the way.

Now that he’s once again at full strength Eddie Hall has gotten back in the gym and his doing his best to prepare for his showdown with his chief rival.

Nice to see all the hard work I’ve been doing on explosive power come to fruition.
Feeling super confident and can’t wait for a date for the fight?! @coresportsworld 👊🏻
Thor get your tattoo artist ready boy 😘

When he’s not busy prepping for the boxing match with Bjornsson, Eddie Hall is collaborating with other professionals in the fitness realm. Most recently Hall joined forces with Ross Edgley, one of the fittest humans on the planet. Many even consider him to be the fittest man in Britain and with good reason. Anyone who can swim 1,780 miles has to be in insanely great condition.
