23 Oct 17 | Eddie Hall: Book signings and tour!
My book, Strongman, My Life is out – and I should know – yesterday I lifted 536kgs of copies of them to establish a new World Record, the Silver dollar Deadlift from 18" (18" off the floor with straps allowed). The old one had been held by Tom Magee (done with cheese blocks!) at 535kg for 34 years. Thankfully, there was no blood coming out of my face – it’s not a good look on television!
Interest in the book has been phenomenal and a massive thanks to all of you who have bought it. There’s more to Eddie Hall than meets the eye and it’s great for people to get a handle on the real me. Meanwhile, I’m just getting used to seeing it on the shelves. Another incredible step in an already incredible year. I’m sure you’ll enjoy it.
As well as being breathless from the deadlift, the sheer number of media interviews I’ve done has kept me more than busy. Yesterday, I found myself bench-pressing Dan Walker on BBC Breakfast. He seemed to enjoy it, although it might have been a smile of fear. I don’t know where Dan’s at with heights.
I followed that up today with an appearance on the Chris Moyles Show on Radio X. I was his mystery guest. Not easy to be a mystery when you’re my size!
Look out for plenty more high profile appearances over the next couple of days.
Lots of love and enjoy the reading – The Beast
My book, Strongman, My Life is out. Don’t forget you can see me in the flesh at the book signings I’ve got lined up. I’d love to meet my fans and promise not to bench-press anyone. Well, probably!
