World class star Eddie Hall is not satisfied with his recent attempts to master the Olympic sports of discus, hammer throw and shot put and has now turned to javelin throw. While the strength of his limb is not in question, his agility and accuracy are less established – although he has improved in these areas over the past year, leaning down, and boxing training made it faster and more agile than before his long workout . expected the showdown in the ring with rival Hafthor Bjornsson.
In the latest video on his YouTube channel, Hall acquires a 700-gram spear and spends the afternoon working on his technique to set himself (or at least) surpass the lofty goal approaches) the record distance for javelin throw.
The current world record in the men’s category was set by Czech athlete Jan Železný during the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta, Georgia, with a distance of 98.48 meters. The women’s world record is 72.28 meters and was set by Barbora Špotáková, also a Czech athlete, at the 2000 World Athletics Finals in Germany.
“I worry about this because I obviously don’t have biceps [right] Arm “, Hall explains to the audience that he took off the long head of his biceps in 2018. According to his own statements, his first throw is” terrible “and clears no further than 22 meters.
“Because it’s so long, you can’t just treat it like you’re throwing a ball. You have to keep your arm straight,” he says. “The limitation of being a little muscle-bound is tough, it’s hard just to create the strength and get the right levers. To win the strongest man in the world, to move from A to B is fine, but this one Transferring power into something more functional is proven to be very, very tough … I think I’ll have trouble breaking 40 meters with that. “

On his second attempt, Hall runs towards the throw to build some momentum and does his best to mimic Železný’s technique. These adjustments pay off and this time it reaches a throwing distance of 37 meters. “I’m not sure I can do much more,” he says. “That really hurt my arm.”
His last, longest litter of the day reached 39.3 meters; still a good 30+ meters behind the women’s world record. “I am very happy with myself,” he concludes. “Speer is obvious Not made for the taller man as you can see. “
