2017 World’s Strongest Man Champion Eddie Hall and IFBB Pro League Men’s Open bodybuilder Jamie Christian Johar recently collaborated on a back workout video on Hall’s YouTube channel. “The Giant” taught “The Beast” how to train for bodybuilding, not power as Hall usually does for Strongman.
Hall plans to compete as a bodybuilder in late 2024. A video of their training session can be seen below.

After introducing themselves, Hall and Johal began a session of wide-grip lat pulldowns. Hall soon realized that Djohar was using a different form than he was used to.
“You can feel your lats working more,” Hall said. For Djohar, this method encourages the brain to perform repetitions. Hall’s son, Maximus, was also seen training alongside the two giant athletes.
The duo moved into a seated row and discussed the importance of muscle range and tone. rice field.
The amount of exercise relaxes the muscles. So try to remove all the momentum.
Johal applied a high intensity training approach to Hall. This approach fails each through drop sets and rest sets while reducing the number of sets. As a sample similar to what Hall and Johal did, try the workout below. Johal and Hall used drop sets or rest sets for his second working set in each movement until the final superset.
- wide grip lat pulldown — 2 warm-up sets, 2 working sets (12-15 reps)
- seated row — 1 warm-up set, 2 working sets of 12-15 reps
- T bar row — 1 warm-up set, 2 working sets of 12-15 reps
- single arm machine row — 1 warm-up set, 2 working sets of 12-15 reps per side
- Superset: Lat Pulldown and Seated Row — 4 supersets of 10 reps each*
*There are no breaks between supersets. Slightly reduce the weight of each exercise in each superset.
