Former World's Strongest Man winner Eddie Hall is never one to shy away from a challenge. His YouTube channel he has taken on a World's Strongest Woman winner in a pound-for-pound contest, and he's even worked out with his hero, Arnold Schwarzenegger. He's also always game for tests of strength which are bound to end in embarrassment, like the time he tried lifting a kettlebell with his dick and balls, or when he leg pressed so much that he passed out and pooped himself.

So it should come as absolutely no surprise that Hall is well up for an afternoon of bench pressing and a chest day workout with the guy who just happens to have set a world record in the exercise.

Julius Maddox became the world record holder in the raw bench press after lifting pounds in September (For contrast, the most Hall has ever benched in a contest is kilograms, around pounds.) Maddox recalls how, at the time, he felt he could have lifted as much as pounds—but he was wise enough to stop before he strained himself too hard and risked an injury.

Maddox starts off the session by schooling Hall on his bench press technique. "When the bar is coming off the rack I'm already flexing my quads," he says, adding that he "very rarely" does self-liftoffs in order to maintain tightness. Maddox also says that the barpath should be a "J" shape, to fully activate the triceps.

Maddox admits that he was hoping to achieve a new PR lift while shooting the video with Hall, but he spotted a few things with the gym equipment that made him reluctant to go all out—a sobering reminder that when you're lifting that much, the slightest error can lead to a potentially life-endangering accident. "I want to live another day," says Maddox, opting out of their bench press competition (if it can be called that) at pounds.

This measured approach is something Maddox permanently keeps in mind during his training, and he always allows plenty of time to rest between sessions so as to avoid tearing muscles his muscles too much. After they're done on the incline bench, Maddox does a series accessory moves like of lat pulldowns, which Hall notes are good for the recovery process "as it helps get blood through the muscle." Maddox also does as many as 10 different back variations during his bench days, "simply because it all works together" and it aids his performance.

"As a strongman, I've always done a day of legs, a day of chest, a day of back, a day of shoulders," says Hall. "Even with a deadlift, I'd just do the deadlift and then do my accessories on the same day, once a week, that was it. Julius has this method where for every push he does two pulls, and it makes sense, because you need those stabilizing muscles in the back to get you in that position to push forward."

Edward Stephen Hall (born 15 January ) is a British former professional strongman. He won the World's Strongest Man competition.[4] Hall has also won the UK's Strongest Man and England's Strongest Man competitions multiple times.

Early life and beginnings[edit]

Hall was born on 15 January in Newcastle-under-Lyme, Staffordshire.[2] As a teenager, he was a successful competitive swimmer. Hall attended Clayton High School, but was expelled at the age of Soon afterwards, he received in-home tutoring.[5] In , he began working as a mechanic in the garage at the Robert Wiseman Dairies site in Market Drayton, Shropshire.[6] He trained and competed as a bodybuilder and entered the strongman circuit, having done a strongman competition at the Iceman gym in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire. In , Dave Meer of Tamworth, Staffordshire had to drop out of the England championships organised by Elite Strongman because of injury. He arranged for Hall to take his place and led to Hall making it into the finals, which he won on his first attempt by half a point.[7]


Hall finished first at the UK's Strongest Man competition in Belfast, with Ken Nowicki in 2nd and Rich Smith in 3rd.[8] His win was helped by setting a new national record in the "Viking Hold", hanging on to 20&#;kg (44lbs) axes in each hand at full stretch for one minute and 18 seconds. Hall tore tendons in an arm during the competition, but was hopeful of a spot at the World's Strongest Man in September. However, his improved ranking could only guarantee a spot for , and he did not compete at WSM in [9]

Winning the UK title meant that Hall became the first choice to replace Jono MacFarlane of New Zealand in the Giants LiveMelbourne event in February , when the latter suffered a back injury.[10] He placed fourth in his first taste of international competition. Later, in April , he was invited to compete at Europe's Strongest Man, another Giants Live event. This was held at Headingley Carnegie Stadium, home of the Leeds Rhinos rugby league team and Hall found himself competing alongside six of the ten finalists from World's Strongest Man , including two-time World's Strongest Man, Žydrūnas Savickas. Hall finished in eighth place.[11]

In , Hall competed at the World's Strongest Man competition, but did not progress beyond his qualifying group.[citation needed]

In April , Hall failed to qualify for Europe's Strongest Man However, he was given a second chance when Ervin Katona was forced to retire due to injury. Hall competed in his place and came in eighth place. In April, Hall also featured on BBC One's Watchdog programme, who enlisted his help to test even the strongest of drivers in specific circumstances.[12] Hall competed at the World's Strongest Man competition later that year, winning two events in his heat but narrowly missing out on qualifying for the final.

In , Hall reached the final for the first time, coming second in the Squat Lift event and ultimately finishing 6th. In March , Hall achieved the world record for lifting the weight of &#;kg (1,&#;lb; &#;st) in the deadlift.[13] The record was achieved at the Arnold Classic in Australia, and Arnold Schwarzenegger was present to cheer him on. He promptly broke his own record at the World Deadlift Championships , with a &#;kg (1,&#;lb; &#;st) deadlift.[14][15]

In April , he also finished 4th at the World's Strongest Man, an improvement of two places on the previous year.

In December , a feature documentary about Hall, titled Eddie: Strongman, was released. The film, directed by Matt Bell and produced by Tom Swanston, follows Hall for two years of his life as he strives to become the strongest man in the world.

In March , he achieved a new world record for the Elephant Bar deadlift in the Arnold Strongman Classic, by lifting &#;kg (1,&#;lb).[16]

In July , Hall set a new world record in the deadlift with a lift of &#;kg (1,&#;lb)[17] at the World Deadlift Championships besting the world record he had previously set at &#;kg (1,&#;lb)[18] earlier that same day. The &#;kg lift made Hall pass out.[17][19]

Hall is the winner of the World's Strongest Man competition and announced his intention to retire from the World's Strongest Man and return to lower-weight competitions after expressing health-related concerns.[20] In an interview, Hall stated that a genetic analysis had shown that a genetic mutation that causes myostatin-related muscle hypertrophy contributed to his large muscle mass.[21]

In , Hall appeared on the Channel 5 show Celebs In Solitary, where he attempted to spend five days in solitary confinement.[22]

In , Hall presented the SPORTbible webseries Beasted!, where he, along with Luke Fullbrook and Chris Peil, helped guide 8 men through exercise plans and diets to improve their fitness.[23][24][25]

Eddie Hall is easily one of the strongest men in the world.

When someone asks Eddie “how much ‘ya bench?” Eddie can honestly say “almost pounds!”

If you want to learn how one of the strongest men in the world trains the bench press then this article is for you!


  • Part 1: Eddie Hall’s Training Split
  • Part 2: Eddie Hall’s Bench Press Workouts
  • Part 3: Eddie Hall’s “Rule Of Six”
  • Part 3: Eddie Hall’s Shoulder Workouts

In this comprehensive guide I will show you how Eddie Hall trains for a world-class bench press.

But first you have to watch this video of Eddie Hall bench pressing pounds for 6 reps:

Talk about an unbelievable set! He makes it look so easy!

Eddie Hall trains 4 days per week using a traditional strongman style training split. Check it out:

The Eddie Hall Training Split

  • Day 1: Squat
  • Day 2: Bench press
  • Day 3: Deadlift
  • Day 4: Overhead press

Eddie Hall trains the bench press and incline bench press every week on Tuesday. He also performs lots of heavy accessory work for his chest and triceps on this day.

Later in the week on Friday Eddie trains his overhead press and performs some shoulder accessory exercises.

One of Eddie’s favorite strategies for training the bench press is to use resistance bands every other week. For example:

Eddie Hall Bench Press Strategy

  • Week #1: Bench Press, Incline Bench
  • Week #2: Banded Bench Press, Banded Incline Bench

Eddie believes that performing regular bench presses one week and banded bench presses the next week is one of the best strategies for getting stronger.

If you want to purchase your own resistance bands then here are my top picks:

Here is what one of Eddie’s typical bench press workouts looks like. Check it out:

Eddie Hall Bench Press Workout

  • Exercise #1: Bench press, 3 sets of reps**
  • Exercise #2: 30 degree incline bench press, 3 sets of reps**
  • Exercise #3: 30 degree incline DB press, 3 sets of reps
  • Exercise #4: Cable push down (straight bar / supinated grip), 3 sets of reps
  • Exercise #5: Standing overhead rope cable extensions, 3 sets of reps
  • Exercise #6: Seated DB french press, 3 sets of reps

**Work up to 1 all-out set of reps.

Here is the training video for this workout:

Eddie Hall keeps things nice and simple in his bench press workouts. He almost always starts his workout off with the flat barbell bench press and the incline barbell bench press. These are his go-to movements for building a strong chest.

Eddie likes to work up to 1 or 2 heavy sets on each of these exercises. Eddie Hall uses “the rule of 6” for the bench press. Basically he uses the same weight each workout until he can get 6 reps with it.

Once he can get 6 reps he increases the weight and starts the process all over again. For example:

Eddie Hall’s “Rule Of 6”

  • Workout #1: pounds x 4 reps
  • Workout #2: pounds x 5 reps
  • Workout #3: pounds x 6 reps
  • Workout #4: pounds x 3 reps

And so on. Eddie mostly likes to train in the rep range. This is about % of his 1-rep max.

If Eddie is training to hit a new personal best in the bench press then he may go as low as reps per set. However, most of the time he trains in the rep range to build his bench.

After his heavy bench press and incline bench press work Eddie performs accessory work for his chest and triceps. Eddie switches up his accessory workouts almost every workout. He really doesn’t track these movements. Instead he picks lifts and puts in some quality work.

Now let’s take a look at Eddie Hall’s banded bench press workout. Check it out:

Eddie Hall Banded Bench Press Workout

  • Exercise #1: Bench press with bands, 3 sets of reps**
  • Exercise #2: 30 degree incline bench press, 3 sets of reps**
  • Exercise #3: Hammer strength incline press, 3 sets of reps
  • Exercise #4: Machine fly, 3 sets of reps
  • Exercise #5: 30 degree incline DB fly, 3 sets of reps

**Work up to 1 all-out set of reps.

Here is the training video for this workout:

Once again Eddie starts his workout with the flat bench pres and the incline bench press. Of course Eddie uses resistance bands for these exercises in this workout.

Resistance bands were popularized by Louie Simmons of Westside Barbell as a way to make the top of the exercise harder and to train your central nervous system to lift heavier weights. The bands are much tougher than they look!

After his heavy bench press and incline bench press work Eddie moves onto some accessory work for his chest. Again the sets and reps on these exercises aren’t too important to Eddie. He just wants to attack his chest with plenty of volume.

I guess when you have the Hercules gene your sets and reps aren’t all that important!

Of course we have to talk about Eddie Hall’s shoulder day. Eddie Hall trained shoulders every week on Friday.

When he was training for the World’s Strongest Man competition he used this as a day to train the log press and the other overhead pressing events. Now that Eddie has retired from professional strongman competitions Eddie uses this as a general overhead pressing and shoulder assistance day.

Check it out:

Eddie Hall Shoulder Routine

  • Exercise #1: Seated DB overhead press, 1 set of reps**
  • Exercise #2: Seated barbell overhead press, 3 sets of reps
  • Exercise #3: Seated machine lateral raise, 3 sets of reps
  • Exercise #4: Standing DB lateral raise, 3 sets of reps
  • Exercise #5: Standing barbell front raise, 3 sets of reps

Here is the training video for this workout:

Eddie ALWAYS starts off his shoulder day with one high-rep set of seated dumbbell overhead presses. Eddie says that this helps him warm up his shoulders.

Eddie even did these when he was a professional strongman! This is a little unusual but it’s hard to argue with Eddie’s results.

After the dumbbell overhead presses Eddie moves onto his main pressing exercise for the day. For this workout it was a seated barbell overhead press.

Finally Eddie finishes off his workout with some lighter shoulder accessory exercises like front raises and lateral raises. Eddie’s unbelievable overhead pressing strength is part of the reason why he could bench press almost pounds.

If you want to copy Eddie Hall’s bench press routine then make sure you include Eddie’s shoulder day as well.


Eddie Hall is one of the strongest bench pressers alive. He has bench pressed pounds on many occasions. Personally I think he is right around the corner from the mythical pound bench press barrier.

If you are looking for a new bench press routine then I highly recommend you use Eddie Hall’s bench press program as a starting point.

Here are a few key things to remember:

  • Point #1: Eddie focuses on the bench press and incline bench press every chest workout
  • Point #2: Eddie alternates straight weight workouts with banded workouts
  • Point #3: Eddie uses the “rule of 6” during his workouts
  • Point #4: Eddie trains his shoulders on a separate day with overhead presses

You now know the EXACT bench press program of one of the strongest bench pressers of all time. So what are you waiting for? Get back in the gym and start training the bench press like you mean it!

Here is a great quote by Eddie Hall to pump you up even more:

“It’s that great feeling, like the first man on the moon, the first man to run a mile in under four minutes.

And now, I’m the first to deadlift half a ton. It’s history, and I’m very proud to be a part of it.”

Thank you for reading and I wish you the best of luck with your strength training journey!

Stuck a member down the throat. I pressed it tightly. Oops, he coughs, and the drool flows right down to his balls. He lifted his head by the hair.

I believe, and I want to feel you in me, but so that it was only pleasant. Katka got up, kissed her. Cheek again and pushed me towards the door, while she herself went to change.

Now discussing:

Sveta leaned towards me and moaned briefly. I had a member for a long time, I really wanted to blow it a second time, but the plans were different. I took my finger out of the vagina and touched the anus. Sveta shuddered.
