Eddie Hall Shares Weight Loss Transformation After Shedding 25kg

Eddie Hall, the 2017 World's Strongest Man, must really be on task with a New Year's resolution as he's gone and shed 25kg of body fat - and the drop is very clear in the pictures.

Carrying extra weight is expected when you take part in a sport that is renowned for raw power and sheer size, but even with this in mind it hasn't stopped the British strongman from undergoing an amazing transformation.

In his career, Eddie has stamped out some seriously impressive competition such as Brian Shaw and Zydrunas Savickas in order to take last year's win of the world title.

Hall can lift an impressive 135kg log press as his 'easy reps' and can throw 60kg dumbbells like they're paper airplanes.

Along with his title as World's Strongest Man, he also broke a record when he managed to complete a 500kg deadlift.

At that point in his career Hall weighed 194kg, but over the last few months he's been determined to shed some excess fat.

In order to drop the 25kg he's followed a strict diet and exercise routine, he used a combination of resistance training and HIIT cardio - there was definitely no fad diets or tricks for Hall.

But if you think of cardio and think endless miles on the treadmill, Hall showed it needn't be monotonous - he varied his cardio exercises by taking part in boxing, cycling, swimming and a mixture of HIIT variations to keep training interesting.

Basically, he's proof everyone can find a form of cardio they like.

Although by shedding 25kg Hall has risked losing a plate or two off the bar, weightlifting still forms the basis of Hall's programme.

Earlier this year Hall lost the title of 'World's Strongest Man' to HafþórJúlíus Björnsson (he played the Mountain in Game of Thrones), but the lovely guy was the first to congratulate his fellow strongman.

Writing on his official Instagram account, Hall said: "SPOILER ALERT.... From one champion to another.... Well done Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson well deserved win!!! World's Strongest Man 2018. Big Love. The Beast."
