Yes Martins claim of "I'm Like Six-Three in the morning, first thing and then after I get walking a little bit, Six-two and a half, six-two even." looks legit!!
Arch Stanton said on 27/Nov/20
I mean Novikov! I could believe 189 for Martins and 5'11.5 for Novikov.
Arch Stanton said on 27/Nov/20
Martins isn't super honest though Nennin, Click Here see 12:44 he looks max 5'11 there. I wouldn't go over 5'11.5 for him as I said.
Nenninn said on 26/Nov/20
@Myself Those photos, and video with Martins are pretty revealing. I think Martins is super honest though. Measures around 189 cm midday. Novikov perhaps closer to 184cm then.
Myself said on 25/Nov/20
Novikov is nowhere near 185 or let alone 186 cm. Just look at the difference with 6'2 Martins Click Here It's pretty huge, if we consider their claims

Next to Hafthor: Click Here

Definitely sub 6 feet, i think 5'11 range.
Nenninn said on 19/Nov/20
@Arch Stanton Novikov claimed 186 cm on insta. The man just won WSM and is at an extreme low there perhaps 184 cm. Eddie walking around doing interviews not close to his low. Eddie probably around 188 and Novikov around 185-6. 537 kilo deadlift not the best for the spine.
Arch Stanton said on 16/Nov/20
Novikov with Arnie, Click Here 5'11.5 more like.
Arch Stanton said on 16/Nov/20
0:37 Click Here Novikov is 6 ft 1?? Then Eddie must be 6 ft 3 LOL. I doubt he is even a full 6ft there!

Eddie was taller than the 2020 World’s Strongest Man Oleksii Novikov who’s listed 6’1” by quite a bit.

Pat got called 6'5 in that article, I also saw somebnody say he was an "easy" 6'5 and 275 pounds in one of the comments. Maybe he is 6'5 in the morning, but I would be surprised if he really weighed 19 and a half stone, to me he looks 17 and a half to 18 stone range. He looks very badly affected from Eddie's training poor guy, somebody like Eddie could kill a man in the boxing ring, Thor is risking his life, no kidding.
Roots4828 said on 13/Oct/20
187cm at most.

We don't know if Juji was barefoot or in sneakers during the measurement.
joec said on 29/Sep/20
however the footwear is unknown
Arch Stanton said on 29/Sep/20
His friend Pat doesn't really look like a 6'5 guy though, but he can look 2.5-3 inches taller than Eddie at times. A solid 6'4 guy, 194cm is what I'd guess. If Eddie is really 190 Pat would be in between 6'5 and 6'6 LOL!

Magista, Brian's head was touching the roof of a 6'8" room..
Magista said on 23/Sep/20
Extremely optimistic considering he's the same height as Wheels in every angle, be it through Wheel's or Eddy's own camera man. Same goes when he was with Sheamus and the Stoltman brothers. Not enough evidence for him to be 6'2.

Though I don't even agree on Shaw's and RB's height. Seeing Shaw with Hafthor I think Brian is in the mid 6'6 range which in turn makes, RB in the mid 6'4 range (makes sense, because he was always a tad to close in height with legit 6'3 athlete and youtubers for my liking to be a 6'5+ guy) . Which puts Eduard's height even lower.
6'3 Julian said on 21/Sep/20
“Ideally someone my height needs to be 15 or 16 stone” Not really Eddie, unless they’re very muscular
Arch Stanton said on 19/Sep/20
His friend Pat can actually look closer to 6'5 I think, definitely taller than 6'4 flat, a good chance of 194-5 range I think. No wonder he laughs at Eddie's claims of 6'3. I think if you asked him his height he'd say 6'5.
Van Halen said on 16/Sep/20
@Rob

If Eddie is 6'2, Martin Licis is taller than just over 6'2
Editor Rob
Martin seemed to indicate he knew about measuring earlier in the day...but hall as mentioned could well have been a guy who had more height to spare or available to bust a gut for a taller measurement.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 28/Aug/20
Rob, which of these is likely?

A) 190.5cm/188.5cm
B) 190cm/188cm
C) 189.5cm/187.5cm
D) 189cm/187cm
E) 188.5cm/186.5cm
F) 188cm/186cm
Editor Rob
B-C might be likely with a proper measurement.
Roots4828 said on 14/Aug/20
His training partner joked that Eddie is 6’1” at most, although I think that was just a joke as Pat is taller than him. Eddie’s stadiometer measurement should be disregarded entirely as most photos of him contradict even a 188cm measurement, let alone 190cm. Click Here at 27:22 you can see Eddie alongside Larry, BTC, and Andrew, with feet showing and Larry looks taller.
Arch Stanton said on 11/Aug/20
Haven't seen him for a while but I saw a link to him shotputting so I checked it out. His 14.5 metres for a beginner is very good, 23 metres world record is just insane. I think the same when I'm running the mile and cannot believe it is humanly possible to run 4 minutes! I wonder what Eddie's friend Pat claims, he can look 6'4-6'4.5 maybe next to Eddie in my opinion. Reminds me of Alan Shearer. Probably claims 6'5.

Arch, it's called "hot sauce".
Arch Stanton said on 3/Aug/20
Genetics plays a huge role in how much you can gain through mass and fat though. The majority of guys could never come close to being as big as Eddie, 10,000 calories and lifting heavy or not. Most men couldn't weigh more than 25 stone, however much they tried! I don't know what you mean James, in my experience women tend to prefer the more aesthetic male physiques, decent muscle but not too beefy and more athletic. I don't think women tend to find the super bulky power lifter type attractive, but there's probably a percentage who like it.
James B 172cm said on 30/Jul/20
women seem to really be attracted to strongmen like eddie hall dont they?
Big Brod said on 28/Jul/20
Big Rob!

I've seen videos with the Stoltman brothers with Eddie Hall and from a quick google search they're listed at 1.90m for Luke Stoltman and 2.03m for Tom Stoltman. In my opinion, they both look like the height listed and I think it could be good insight to Eddie Hall's listing (I'm still under the impression Eddie Hall is a 6'1'' and 1/2 guy).

There's Eddie and his family. His parents are very good looking and slim/athletic yet all three lads are over 18 stone! You'd think his dad would be like Andy Fordham or somebody


The reason for his size isn't only genetic but +10000 calories, steroids and hard workouts. Genetics maybe 5 percent effective

Yes, even Oberst said the the world storngmen competitors are "outcasts out of outcasts", he said it's one thing to take lifting weights to an extreme and wanting to become the strongest you possibly can, but a whole other level of obsession and sacrifice in wanting to become the world's strongest man. It is very expensive eating 10,000 calories with a lot of meat a day for a start. Even that Polish guy Pud whatever his name lived in a small house, even after winning several times. Nowdays it seems they are able to make more more through Youtube and selling merchandise and promotions etc which is good but in danger of becoming silly with fights like Eddie and Thor. I admire the sacrifice and dedication to it but I do think there's some negative traits which go hand in hand with strongman.


Arch- even being a little bit overweight in muscle is expensive since you have to buy more food etc.....I mean celebrities like Mark whalberg, Eddie hall and the rock can afford to eat a lot of good. But for us normal people who work regular 9-5 jobs it costs a lot of money.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Jul/20
If Eddie properly leaned out, he’d look taller
Big Brod said on 16/Jul/20
I don’t think there is enough evidence to give him the full 6’2” - Eddie Hall next to Luke Stoltman in their videos suggests that he is around 6’1” and 1/2. I can definitely see him 188 - 189cm out of bed but during the day around 187cm then 186cm at beddy byes.

Man I used to really like and enjoy watching Eddie but the unrelenting strive for having people agree that he's 190 and the constant self centered attention and praise he desperately craves really puts me off. He's even started to put on a deeper voice when speaking to the camera. I feel like if he was just himself he would probably be one of the most respected persons on the planet.

Exactly. The more you see of him the more it's very obvious he's a narcissistic personality disorder type. It does take a certain type to want to be the strongest man in the world anyway. He's nearer 160kg about 350 pounds now Alirza, at least getting into more normal territory but still grotesquely overweight.
Alir?za said on 13/Jul/20
I believe that very fat or obese people are at least 2 3 cm shorter. Even if he is 30 years old. Yeah he is not normal obese people and he has too much muscle but still he is over 180 kg. So much weight causes the spine to shorten.

This reasom I think he is now 187-188 cm but he could be 190 cm at his 20's

Editor Rob
Eddie has certainly looked 6ft 1 to 1.5, but then if he can bust a gut I do think a proper measurement (rather than the 190cm one) could result in closer to 6ft 2...but yeah, I can see why a fair amount of the time he doesn't seem 6ft 1.5-2 range.

Big Willis 6'2" said on 3/Jul/20
There is no way Eddie is 6 foot 3, or 6 foot 2.5. Look at him in videos with guys like Larry Wheels and Patty Mcguinness, Eddie is barely taller and sometimes even shorter than them. Take into account that he is wearing thick soled shoes as well. He is no where near 6 foot 3 or 2.5. He could be 6'1" in the morning and shrink half an inch, due to the guy being nearly twice the weight of your average Joe.

As far as the stadiometer measurement, no wear in the measuring part of the video do we see his feet, and he was jumping a bit to make himself taller. Seeing him next to other strong men that claim 6'2" and 6'3" and Eddie being a good inch or two shorter shows he is just lying. He's got an ego about it too.
berta said on 28/Jun/20
ROb by the way are you gonna take another look at big z now. theres is clearly mre than 2,5 cm beetween them. i think 1/4 upgrade for big z would be closer , he could even be 192 from what i saw. remember that there is atleast 4 cm beetween those two guys.
berta said on 28/Jun/20
Roots4828, i have meet big z and he is closer to 192 never under 191,5. he edged out my 190,5 cm brother
Roots4828 said on 23/Jun/20
How does he manage to look 2 inches shorter than Big Z?
When Eddie was measured he was standing on his toes somewhat, no doubt about that. Using his neck tattoo as a point of reference you can see he moves up a few cm.
FriedChicken said on 22/Jun/20
I always assumed he was more of a 6'1 guy but i guess the upgrade makes sense. His weight can make him look a little shorter than he actually is. In the video the stadiometer seems to stop at his hair rather than his actual head. His hair could add 2 cm or 3. So 187-188 cm for Eddie is accurate. I'm pretty sure the doctors would've called him out on tip-toeing and wearing shoes. Every doctor I've been to always made sure i was in socks, and everyone who I'd accompany with for a checkup would always be asked to have their shoes off too. Can't see why it'd be any different, really.
Yas said on 22/Jun/20
Eddie cheated when he got measured. He jumped a little.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 19/Jun/20
He’s most likely at least 187-188cm when standing for a measurement
Myself said on 19/Jun/20
Rob, let's not forget that he was shorter than old HHH: Click Here
We don't know wether he was tip toeing (the fact that it looked like he was "floatig" the first seconds of the measurement could be a clue, as well as the fact that we see his shoulders get suddenly noticeably higher) or if he was on shoes and on top of that he was laying before that "measurement" too btw. Tbh i don't think the argument "He's big and looks shorter" really stands either, considering the fact that it doesn't matter if we are looking at his head/eyes when comparing him with other people.
Editor Rob
Eddie was certainly pleased with himself achieving 190cm for his video. It's a shame it was filmed not showing feet...
When I did sneaker videos, I made sure Jenny shot from feet upwards in all of them!
Alir?za said on 19/Jun/20
If he is measuremented 190 cm, he can't be shorten than 188 cm . When I saw him in 2015, he give me impression 185-186 cm guy. But he was too fat. Overweight may cause shortened height. Now his weight is down. He may have come back to his normal height
joec said on 18/Jun/20
@Rampage(-_-_-)Clover

Even if he was barefoot, you can still see at the very end of the measurement he shot up on his top toes very briefly, you can see the head piece rise a few cm
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 18/Jun/20
I also thought he was more a 6ft1 range guy initially but I think with really large guys like that they can have some height in reserve. Remember this guy is over 400lbs!

But Rob, do you think that Eddie pulled a Gordon Ramsay with that 190cm measurement and was in shoes?
Editor Rob
That is a question that remains unanswered.

Didn't seem that much less beside Sheamus, 187 range looked believable, but then if he gets measured and stands his tallest he can be one of those guys who measures more than they look.

Keeping in mind he's three times the width of most women, anybody that broad is going to look shorter. Eddie said most people think he's 5 ft 8 or 9 and are surprised when they meet him!!

I saw him in 2015 and I am legit 191 cm in night. He is easily shorter than me at least 4-5 cm.

But I don't understand how his height is measured 190 cm?
Donte said on 15/Jun/20
Where is the video?
mark thompson said on 14/Jun/20
never expected a 6ft2 upgrade, i thought he would eventually get downgraded to 6ft1 1/4. anyway in the video where hes measured 190cm, i can do the same posture thing he did and measure 181-182 (even though im legit flat 179), and it definitely looks like a shoe measurement.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 11/Jun/20
Oh wow!

Was not expecting this but I did watch the video and yeah maybe he can stretch to 188cm. But 190cm range afternoon I struggle to see...
Myself said on 11/Jun/20
I will never buy that he is 6'2. If anything i was expecting a downgrade to 186 cm, which could be a realistic figure for him imo.
hairlinecel said on 10/Jun/20
Idk how he's got 190cm om stadiometer. I'm 189cm at 11am (so probably my real height is 6'2.25 - ~188.6cm) and I met him omce. I was almost an inch taller than him LOL.
joec said on 9/Jun/20
@BrianC

Yeah that would explain everything. Even if he wasn't wearing shoes, that little tip-toe "jump" could have easily added 1-2cm, in addition to him busting a gut and standing as tall as he possibly could. Also his hair seems to give him around 1cm. If he measured legitimately, I believe he would be around 187-188cm
Feister said on 9/Jun/20
I don't know how he got measured at 190,1. Martin Wildauer (another pro strongman) describes himself as 190cm tall. Saw them both in Germany in 2015 at a powerlifting competition (Eddie did a show lift with a 420kg deadlift). Eddie was clearly a little bit shorter (not much -I would say around 1 inch).
Jkiller said on 9/Jun/20
In his recent youtube video where he's measured 190cm, he is clearly stretching/reaching so bad, and that was with shoes too for sure, so anything between 6'1.75-6'2 barefoot is an accurate guess. I don't believe he ever falls under 187cm.
BrianC said on 8/Jun/20
I think I found out why Eddie Hall was measured for 190 cm even though in my opinion he's more a 186 - being generous 187. So first of all you can clearly see that he was wearing socks throughout the video prior to him getting on the stadiometer, so he I suspect he was just wearing socks for the measurement. However, you see that when Eddie gets on the stadiometer starting at 6:25 he clearly puffs up his chest and busts a gut as hard as he can to the max. In addition if you slow the video down from 6:28 to 6:30 you can clearly see that he tiptoed at the very end of the measurement, and you see as at 6:28 to 6:30 the headpiece suddenly rises from when it was when he wasnt tiptoeing (you can slow the video down to 0.25 speed to see it.

I could definetely see how, on top of his maximum chest puffing which could've given him half a centimeter, on top of the clear tiptoe at the very end, he could've gained 4 or so centimeters.
Thebeast said on 8/Jun/20
In the video where he measured 190.1 cm, it looked like the guy next to him didn’t tap it the whole way down. Eddie has a lot of hair on the top of his head. Maybe he stopped taping at his hair, but not his head. I wouldn’t be surprised if he was standing a little bit on his toes as well. Not much, but maybe 1 cm. A little bit on his toes and a little bit of wrong measure method = 2 cm minus. That’s why this new listing at 188 cm is perfect.

But those who say he was wearing shoes, and that he is 185 and so on.. you’re wrong.. maybe you just want to believe that he is that short? he is easily over 187 cm. He is somewhere between 187.5 and 189.5 cm.
Roots4828 said on 8/Jun/20
Weird how he could be 6’2” or over. He looks same height as Larry Wheels and barely an inch taller than listed 6’.5” Paddy McGuinness
J-Dog said on 7/Jun/20
Hey Guys,

If you check out the following Facebook page you will see many honest fans you cite their height and have pictures with Brian Shaw, Eddie Hall (a lot), The Stoltmans, et cetera....Eddie with the cited 5'11" fan does look to be ~6'2" (187-188cm). I know people previously have cited possible lifts et cetera...

Rob this is a very good reference/source.

Arch Stanton said on 7/Jun/20
Yeah it's difficult to see a legit 190 for him, it was the looking down at his feet which I found sus as if he was on his toes. I don't think I'll bother continuing watching him, the more I've seen of him the more I suspect narcissistic personality disorder. His strength and dedication is amazing and he can be a funny guy but I don't like guys who constantly look for praise and pampering their ego. Thor may be boring but at least he's not constantly bragging about himself. Brian Shaw is the genuine article and successful enough to not have to keep boasting about himself.
Editor Rob
It is much easier to try to rise up on toes when you have your back against a stadiometer than if you faced a stadiometer.
joec said on 6/Jun/20
we still dont know if he was wearing shoes or not...190cm makes no sense for him
Ulf Jonas Hiller said on 6/Jun/20
So, according to the stadiometer in this video his status should be bumped to 6'2 & 3/4 (or actually 6'2 & 7/8 would be even closer). However, literally EVERY picture and video of him standing next to another known celebrity contradicts this and even makes a more modest 6'2 estimate unlikely. Look at him next to Bill Kazmaier congratulating him in 2017 when he won world's strongest man. Kazmaier is himself listed as 6'2 and was clearly taller back in 2017. And keep in mind that he was by then already in his mid-60s so he might not even have been at full 6'2 then. Eddie clearly cares a good deal about having people think he's 190cm (maybe enough to actually elaborately fake his height measurements??).

Either put his status as 6'2 & 3/4 (or 7/8) as it is his "apparent" measured height, or, go by something closer to 6'1 which is what people seem to believe and what seems reasonable comparing him to others in photos and videos.
Either way, he'll most likely either remain about 2 inches shorter looking than he is or keep measuring about 2 inches taller than he is for as long as he lives, I'm guessing...
lojza said on 6/Jun/20
His latest video on youtube shows that he is exactly 190cm. needs upgrade
Arch Stanton said on 6/Jun/20
You don't see his feet for the measurement but look at various stages in it he looks like he's in his socks.
Arch Stanton said on 6/Jun/20
Rob, check out his latest Youtube video at Loughborough Uni, at 6:29 he got measured on an electro stadio and it's 190. something and if you see a bit earlier and a bit later on the video I don't think he was wearing sneakers, looked like socks rolled up. Now the person measuring him looked down at his feet, was he standing on his toes or what?
Editor Rob
A true 190cm measurement I can't buy as it seems it wasn't pressed down, but was he really pulling a 'heel rise'...

Ben Bell did say he was surprised with Eddie and could have been 6ft 2.5 range...
Yannickkaar said on 5/Jun/20
In his recent video you can the expert measuring him at 190cm.
Althought it's pretty easy to see its not his head, but the top of his hair that get measured.
So I would say he is 188cm
ggg34 said on 5/Jun/20
Click Here 6:38 guess its confirmed 6'2.
lol eddie cheating still why cant he accept he is 6'1 man hahahaa
Editor Rob
Even with some leeway like not tapping it down, it's hard to imagine Eddie not being at least somewhere in 6ft 2 range when measured...
berta said on 4/Jun/20
rob dont you agree thata most of those powerlifters looks horter than they really are. this guy standing by himself can look 185 but people seems to forget that his shoulders are like 2 normal men. he was 4-4,5 cm shorter than big z back to back, i saw that z was about 191-191,5 in person and that makes this guy 187 cm, he really cant be shorter than that, but the full 188 would make savickas 192,5 and that a little to mutch.
Editor Rob
Yes, these guys in some photos simply don't seem 6ft 2.
Arch Stanton said on 16/May/20
In my opinion his weight makes him look a lot shorter than he actually is, when you see him with the other strong men he looks average height. He said he's got a rare gene which doesn't impose restrictions on gaining muscle mass than most people have to protect the bones. He's an extremely rare case, 99.9% of men could never gain that much muscle mass and be that heavy without being obese at this height. Keeping in mind he's the weight of a typical big rugby player plus Big Rob.
Editor Rob
Seeing him beside Dani Harmer, he looks thrice as wide as her!
Roots4828 said on 16/May/20
Larry Wheels edges him out. Eddie must be 6’1” flat at most. How does a 6’1.5” guy look shorter than one that’s 6’1”?
Chinybobs said on 16/May/20
He’s around 2” shorter than big Z. Hence he’s approx 6-1.
Duhon said on 13/May/20
Does someone 6'1.5" who weighs 400 lbs appear to look taller than someone that same height who is let's say 185 lbs? I wonder if all the added mass gives people the impression he is a "giant" and thus must be taller than ~6'1".
Jonas Hiller said on 13/May/20
On the picture of him next to De Niro he actually looks 6'3 if Robert is 5'7½ and both are standing straight, on the same flat surface, and have similarly thick heels.

Let's say he's only 6'1. What's the big deal? The guy who won the world strongest man competition 5 times, more often than anyone else, Mariusz Pudzianowski was and is "only" 6'1. It's a good height. Taller than most (90% or so) westerners, probably (Scandinavians and Dutchmen excluded). Average height of male runway models and, apparently, good enough a height for world strongest man winners. If you could choose to be a) 5'1, b) 6'1 or c)7'1 what percentage of you would NOT choose b)? I bet less than 10%.
Chinybobs said on 13/May/20
Obsessed with being 6-3. He’s 6-1. Period.
Jonas Hiller said on 9/May/20
Judging from this photo of his standing next to Martin Licis he looks about at least a solid inch shorter. Celeb Heights has Martin at 6'2 and 1/4 last time I checked so I guess that would put Eddie at around 186cm (or possibly shorter).

Click Here

Still though, that doesn't explain how he got measured at 190cm, even with sneakers (not unless his sneakers were either 4cm thick or they were maybe an inch to 3cm thick and he took a morning measurement and rounded up from close to 189.5cm).

Either way, he looks short for a WSM competitor, even compared to those listed as 6'2, I think.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 3/May/20
I think in most shoes he's approaching 6ft3. 6ft1 flat is too low
Arch Stanton said on 3/May/20
@Rob Check out 35 minutes of his interview with True Geordie on YouTube, Eddie claimed 6'2.5!! Finally being honest about his measurement in footwear... I like him but he seems very egotistical and insecure, even referred to himself as short at one point and that being big helps his confidence!!
Editor Rob
It's a bit of a more realistic claim than a full 6ft 3!
Arch Stanton said on 3/May/20
I did agree with Eddie and Brian Shaw on them saying that legit world records need to be done in a competition but in fairness the people they had judging it and the way the weights were measured and Thor being in front of a much larger audience online than you'd ever get at a comp and clearly under pressure to perform for me the 501 is a legit WR. But if Thor can pull off 520 at a comp once the virus is over I think even Eddie would respect that.
190.5/189.5 said on 3/May/20
I'll give him 6'1", could be a little over though or maybe even under. It's hard to tell with this guy, given how massive he is. 6'3" is a joke, he's clearly insecure about his height due to the size of the giants that he competes against. I probably would be too!

@Aaron Richardson

To me he is definitely looking over the 6'2" mark with you, that is if you are standing at least the 5'10 flat in that photo with him. Then again could he have had some kind of footwear advantage or an uneven floor?
James B 172cm said on 30/Apr/20
arch- 6'1-6'2 is big enough for a man
Cockstride said on 29/Apr/20
@Aaron. His footwear has been noticeable in the way of a little more than normal. Just saying
Arch Stanton said on 29/Apr/20
Yeah he's insecure about his height, Brian Shaw said "6'3 is a bit of stretch" in one video and you could see he was pissed off! In his mind 6'3 is probably the start of "big" territory and he doesn't want to think of himself as only 6'1-6'2. He does seem to have that sort of mentality where "the bigger the better", why else would he be happy to be 27 stone, it's a very unhealthy weight. His strength is phenomenal but he'd be far far healthier if he got down to 280-300 pound range.
Aaron Richardson said on 27/Apr/20
I'm 5'10 (doctors measurement)
And I'd say hes a solid 6'1 ..6'1 & 1/2

Still claiming 6-3 on Instagram. Big Z has 2” on him so it’s impossible. Lol.
Dmitry11 said on 23/Apr/20
Absolutely hilarious video where Big Z, Licis and Eddie Hall, as we know for sure Big Z is 6'3". and Hall billed 6'3" but he is obviously shorter than Big Z and Licis, so 6'1-1,5 at most (World's Strongest Man 2017 Finals (UK version))

6'1 flat is way too low for him, 187 as listed is good

Seeing him next to larry wheels is identical but I'm assuming eddie has been measured with shoes on. And not really without. So my guess without shoes is 6,1 and a half but with shoes I'd say hes just under 6',3
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 15/Mar/20
189-190cm range in shoes is possibly and may even hit 6ft3 in some.

I still can’t see him at a flat 6ft1 though

Arch Stanton said on 6/Mar/20
You wouldn't think it to look at him but he comes from a really athletic family and wasn't far off becoming a pro swimmer. He had a toned, athletic physique when he was younger but he just seemed to keep lifting and lifting heavier and eating and eating and just got gigantic. He looks a lot better than he did a few years back but still looks really unhealthy at his size, around 380 pounds now I think. I think he'd look much better if he lost around 100 pounds. 20 stone is still massive for a 6'1 range guy!!
Bob da cob. said on 27/Feb/20
Funniest thing about Eddie is he wears a T-shirt saying back up you bullish£t. Haha. Yeah like that you’re 6-3 barefoot??
Arch Stanton said on 25/Feb/20
He was listed at 190 cm on a form on his channel. The listings on it were very specific about body fat and weight etc. I think he genuinely measured 190, but in sneakers.
Arch Stanton said on 25/Feb/20
There's a video on Youtube of Eddie Hall and Paddy "bollock" lifting. Eddie looks 6'1.5-6'2 range next to 6 ft range Paddy I thought. I caught Eddie next to Brian Shaw too, he was looking between 5 and 6 inches shorter. I had thought Shaw looked 6'8 but if he is 6'7.25 then Eddie again looked 6'1.5-6'2. Not seeing low 6'1 range though.
Arch Stanton said on 21/Feb/20
Isn't there a category for Strongmen? It seems a bit odd to only have a category for people based on their first names!

GH89 said on 9/Feb/20
No idea how people are seeing 185cm flat.. Generally looks 188 in the morning and dips to 186 after a hard day's lifting. 187cm is a good fit for Eddie overall. I think his giant frame can make him look squatter than his actual measured height.
Bob da cob. said on 22/Jan/20
Looks 6-1 flat. Certainly not 6-3
J-Dog said on 21/Jan/20
Thanks for the replies Rob & Caldonio.

I have to say you guys are correct and I've noticed with Eddie Hall recently in the last ~1.5 years he has looked unnaturally close to legit 6'3-4" guys. I think he has been supplementing with lifts of some kind. I think Rob has him listed correctly. ~186cm seems more likely.
Jkiller said on 17/Jan/20
Honestly looks 187cm next to Larry Wheels who I believe is 186cm.
Zadari said on 4/Jan/20
I think Eddie hall is 6ft 1 as he was shorter than Arnold Schwarzenegger when stood next to him in socks.

1.75 probably from recent years when he's been fighting back against 6ft 1 claims 😎

@Aritra

The UFC does not give accurate heights, they are known to also inflate heights

many examples such as Donald Cerrone,Jake Ellenberger,Brock Lesnar, Shane Carwin, JDS , Overeem , Rozenstruick

it's funny because if you watch the weigh ins, guys who are supposed to be 1-2 inches taller than their opponents are actually shorter for example Arvlovski vs Rozenstruick.

UFC are almost as bad as the WWE imo but not quite.
The Ben said on 4/Dec/19
6'2.5 when I met him.
I always thought he looked shorter on film though.
Not ruling out lifts either, I cant remember the shoes he was wearing either.
Aritra said on 4/Dec/19
I think the WSM lie about height as do the wwe and the nba .
But think the UFC gives accurate heights .
Aritra said on 4/Dec/19
I know he might be exaggerating his height despite being at least 6 feet. But strongmen are huge and 6 feet honestly is quite short for someone of his sport , besides he has a huge ego .
Caldonio said on 29/Nov/19
J-dog people have quoted on Instagram who have met him several times saying he’s got taller after the debunked 6-3 claim. Trying to looking 6-3 with legit 6-3 people. ??
J-Dog said on 20/Nov/19
Hey Caldonio is there actual proof of Eddie Hall using lift inserts? He appears ~187cm most of the time in actuality.
Editor Rob
Actors may wear lifts, but I think it's too often thrown around.

I've met and seen a lot of actors...very very few could I tell had elevators or lifts. And getting 100+ photos with fans, and knowing these photos are online - well, it's an opportunity any height-minded individual might decide to wear them.

It's the 3/4 inch lifts that are really hard to ever spot.
Yuval said on 17/Nov/19
He has ego issues.. he is all about the alpha male thing, so he added an inch to his height.
It is really stupid because 6'1.5 is already tall
Caldonio said on 13/Nov/19
Been using insole enhancements since social media debunked his 6-3 claim. 6-1.5 correct call.
Anon11 said on 7/Nov/19
Eddie knows fine well that you do not give someone your height in shoes, that is ridiculous. He is someone who does have a massive ego and no doubt loves to be as massive as he is, so it is unsurprising that he over-exaggerates his height considerably.
James B said on 3/Nov/19
Rob could the 6’3 claim be at the doctors with shoes on?
Editor Rob
Well he may well have got that figure in shoes.
Shane Gray said on 2/Nov/19
Eddie is clearly claiming a shoe height.
Yuval said on 31/Oct/19
Licis even says 6'2 after a hard day, I think he is closer to 6'2(Martins).By the way both Eddie and Martins stood next to Larry Wheels(6'1) and looked the same height,Martins may be slightly taller then Larry
just because said on 30/Oct/19
In this video eddie first claims his height is 6ft3 then martins licis who looks an inch taller than eddie says he is 6ft3 in the morning but 6ft2and a half later in the day eddie then downgrades himself to 6ft2 and a half Click Here So if matins i 6ft2.5 eddie has to be 6ft1.5

Yeah that claim from licis is at least not that bad.

Well Arnold is 5'11 max today, and in the video Eddie looked 2.5-3 inches taller which still puts him in the 6'1-6'2 range.

Also Martins Licis had a video with Larry Wheels and mentioned how they are the same height(Larry being 6'1)

How tall is Martins Licis? Listed 6'3 but I remember 6'2 claim in the 2017 WSM
Editor Rob

Lambo said on 24/Sep/19
We need to find out how tall "Deno Driz" is. If you watch Eddie's recent video where he went to Thorpe Park, he is exactly the same height as this guy.
Fabian frances said on 23/Sep/19
Check out the recent vid Eddie uploaded on you tube where he meets Arnold. Eddie has a photo with Arnold on level floor, and he is easily 3 inches taller. So assuming Arnold is now 5'11 to 6 ft, that makes Eddie 6'2 or 6/3. What stood out for me was his huge boddy mass. Arnold at his biggest size when young would still look small alongside Eddie1
Caldoni said on 23/Sep/19
6-1. People have quoted recently after the social media backlash of his 6-3 claim he is now sporting very “helpful footwear”. He’s strong 6-1 guy. Never ever 6-3.

Why not state 187.4cm while you are at it...

Just a random comment to say that

1-Hall is 187.5 AT BEST for sure, I even doubt it. More like 6'2 morning height and 6'1ish evening.
2-@Berta is 100% correct about Savickas, I met him too and he is taller than his " billed " height.
I was actually surprised at how tall he looked, especially when I saw my pics with him afterwards.
tree said on 9/Jul/19
I don't think he believes it since he was listed 188cm years ago in british competitions.
Eddie would be like: piss off i am 190 in shoes that's fair enough.
Myself said on 25/Jun/19
You can see how Eddie really believes to be 190 cm, as he put that as his height in the BF calculator (as also shown by "tree", I noticed): Click Here From 6:40

@tree
I think Juji in that photo might be losing some height due to his leg posture, but even if we say the he isn't, that's a 3-3.5" difference imo, so Eddie looks 6'1-6'1.5 (that's also if we say that Juji isn't like 5'9.5-5'9.75 range, but really 5'10).
Everything is possible but I still would have a hard time believing that Eddie is above 186 cm at his low.

@Randomdude
I think Licis is at least 6'1.5, up to 6'2.25. I would give him 6'2, as you can see how the top of his head is almost level with Hafthor's eyes usually.

Rob how tall do you think the true Geordie is? He towered over Eddie Hall in pictures he’s taken with him, don’t quote me on this but I recall that he has claimed 6 ft 3 and 6 ft 4 in his Q&As and in the picture I had seen TG with Eddie Hall he looked at least 6 ft 3, his poor posture is the reason why people think he’s smaller than he is, and apparently TH weighs 25 stones must have real strain on him if he’s that big

Met him today in Hackney, London, he was hosting a one vs one strength test between Nick Best and Brian Shaw. Cameras and everything. Assuming it’ll be for a YouTube skit. My height fluctuates between 186-187cm flat. I Stood next to Eddie and the other Guys for a long period of time since there weren’t many in the crowd. This took place outside a pub. I even managed to shake hands and speak to Eddie and asked him a question. But height wise he was nearly the same height as me. Tad bit shorter. I would peg him around 185cm. Nick Best was the same height as him but at times looked very slightly shorter, he’s also at around 184-185cm. Brian Shaw was actually really, really tall but even my friend guessed he wasn’t exactly 6’9. He could be around 6’7 or even 6’6 (lowest I’d say)

BTW....they were all freaking huge and was amazing to actually see them all in living colour at my local pub in Hackney!

Eddie Hall - 185cm

Nick Best - 184cm

Brian Shaw - 200.5cm

@Yuval then why is he clearly an inch(atleast) shorter than 6'2 Henry?

he does look close to Bill Kazmaier who is about 6'2 but also remember Bill is also approaching 70 years old so I doubt he is still 6'2(that was his peak height)

I just don't see it all the evidence I'm looking at suggest he is 6'0 1/2 to 6'1

He has a lot of haters..but for sure he is not under 6'1. I think this listing is perfect, 1.5 inch shorter then Big Z.

Lambo said on 14/Sep/18
Conclusive proof that Eddie is not the 6'3" he claims. Here he is with presenter George Lamb who is at least 6'4" making Eddie around 6'0" in this picture. Click Here And before anyone mentions footwear, here is a full length shot showing similar footwear:

@Ben Bell
Are you over or close to middle age? Did you have herniated discs or something?

About Eddie, i think he is nowhere near at 6'3 at his low. Check out him with legit 6'2.75/6'3.25 Zydrunas Savickas:

Just wear and tear.
All good now. Can do everything again after surgery, I’m just slightly shorter.

@Ben Bell
Dam...i'm sorry for that...how old are you and what did specifically happen?
Randomdude12 said on 14/Jun/18
fair point,

but to be honest I just can't see it with 6'3 big z

I'd still think he is 6'1 but then again as you said if I ever got a picture with him my opinion may change
Ben Bell (The Ben) said on 11/Jun/18
I am 6'0.5 100%.
I was 6'1.025, I had spinal issues and shrunk down to 6'0 due to generative disc disease. I then had spinal fusion surgery and have gained a little.
It's funny when I put photos on here years ago with Roddy Piper, Ric Flair and the Ultimate Warrior I had people saying I was taller than I was.
I have a photo of my 6'3 friend next to Eddie Hall, both with good posture and they are identical in height.
Eddie is touring the UK currently, I'd suggest people go and get a photo with him. He's a very large man.
Taking footwear in to Account I could go down to 6'2.5 but no less.
Randomdude7 said on 9/Jun/18
@Ben Bell then I doubt you are 6'0.5

I still think 6'1 he quite shorter than 6'3 big Z
Ben Bell said on 7/Jun/18
Just met him today and I’d say 6’3.
I had a photo with him and I’m 6’0.5 and he had 2” on me at least.
Also had a photo with my 6’3 friend and they were exactly the same height.
Definitely looks shorter due to his massive width, I wasn’t expecting him to be 6’3 at all. Even stood a few meters from him he looked shorter. It was only in the photos or when standing directly next to him you could see his height.
Flexbert said on 30/May/18
He looks 6'1 to me.
Yuval said on 13/May/18
Being a giant means more range of motion. Not every 6'6-6'9 guy will manage to be the best.For example Terry Hollands 6'6 never won wsm. I wonder if Shaq could have been world strongest man if he filled his frame with like 500 pound of muscles at 7 foot tall. He makes thor look short lol.He did bench 405 so he has strength..maybe in the future some 7 foot guy will diminate. It is hard to fill that frame..Brian and thor consume 10k calories a day and they eat all day when they are not training

@berta
I think there is a chanse of Zydrunas being more 190 than 191, since that is also the height he personally claimed here at 2:15 Click Here and listed here at 1:54 Click Here (in this same video Mariusz is listed 1.8, and he was listed 183 somewhere else too, so i doubt he is over 183 by any chanse; check this out Click Here)
It could be an old measurement that he (Big Z) has been claiming for a while (just like me) since his teens and he actually grew a little after that, or he could be really 6'2.75 to 6'3 flat too.
Nevertheless still a good height for that sport, although i think in the future more and more men closer to 7 foot will begin appearing, since their maximum muscular potential is considerably higher...but i'm not an expert in this subject.
Still quite suprising how Eddie and Zydrunas manage to hold their own against pretty much giants like Shaw and Julius.
Yuval said on 10/May/18
And Big Z is like 42 years old..heavey(heaviest I should say?) lifting for 26 years..didnt lose that much height if any at all. Bill Kazmier too, heavy lifting no height loss. So lifting doesnt makes you shorter..no more then aging for sure. Arnold probably had issues and lost less then what is listed(never was 6'2)
berta said on 7/May/18
by the way everybody should check out world strongest man 2018 and you see that big z is little over 6 foot 3 he isnt that mutch shorter than hafthor and the other big guy
Yuval said on 6/May/18
Zydrunas is 191 cm for sure. How about Mariusz Pudzianowski? listed 6'1 but with Zydrunas he looks 6 foot. Also with Derek Poundstone(listed 6'1) he looks an inch shorter.
Berta said on 5/May/18
Rob keep a eye on big z because im 90 procent shore he is little over that. His shoes had atleast 1 inch but still he was taller in person than in photos. I still stand by my big z 191- 191.5 estimate and peter stormare max 187 and could be 186 today. There is way over 1 inch beetween them two
Depressed Schizophrenic said on 3/May/18
Want a real 6'3'' powerlifter try Zydrunas Savickas who easily edges this guy by a solid 4-5 cm ..
berta said on 28/Apr/18
keep in mind thoose guys always lift extreme weights and is half inch shorter in every photo than if they would have a resting day. i saw zavickas on a day where he didnt lift, he was just standing all day and taking photos and talking with fans. i can promise 100 procent that the shortest possible he ever is 190,5 biggest chanse is fraction over 191. i think this guy could be the same he looks 187 in most photos but if we would meet him on a rest day he could look 188. its just my opinion. i mean i have meet magnus samuelsson who says he is 2 meter and they always sad 6 foot 7 on world strongest man. But i edged him out at weak 197. so when i was going to meet zavickas and read 191 as his height i thought " this guy is probably no taller than 189" only guy that really was atleast his claimed height if not fraction more. Also i can believe magnus samuelsson have lost height after all thoose years of lifting. i could see when he walked that his back looked like he had som injury to it.
berta said on 28/Apr/18
all i can tell you guys is that i have meet Zavickas 6 month ago ore something like that and he is the only guy that was taller than i thought. most celebs i have seen ore meet have been 2-3 cm shorter than they look. for example peter storamre looks 188-189 in movies but beside a carpenter who i have meet he doesnt look over 185. could actually look 184 ( but he can have lost a little height since peak) Zavickas is legit 6 foot 3 i promise you guys because my borter is 190,5 cm to be exact and i saw that zavickas edged him out in the photo tegether and ovarall when they stood beside eath other. i Can tell you that there is 2 inches beetween peter stormare and zavickas and there is no way he is under 191 cm. my guess is 191-191,5 with extremelly good posture that make him look 192.
Yuval said on 17/Apr/18
Big z is 3 cm taller then Hall..
depressed schizophrenic said on 14/Apr/18
ROB would you estimate Zavickas height to be legit 6'3?
Editor Rob
Closer to 6ft 3 than Eddie Hall ever was!
depressed schizophrenic said on 14/Apr/18
Just lol @ 6'3
Yuval said on 13/Apr/18
Colin Bryce is listed 188 cm.There are a lot of photos and interviews of them together, Eddie is at most tall as him and can look 1-2 cm shorter.
berta said on 9/Apr/18
i think the listing is good. he is around 4,5-5 cm shorter than Zydrunas Zavickas who i meet. and he is a very very legit 6 foot 3 guy i would say around 191-191,5
Yas said on 26/Feb/18
That 1100lbs deadlift robbed him of 2 inches lol.
Josh Jeffords said on 10/Feb/18
6 1 .5 if he stands up straight more 6 1 most times benchers and super heavy power lifters have awful posture.
He is nowhere near his claim 6 3 guy mildly tower him even bird chesting.
Great lifter, amazing presser and he may have won wsm even without controversy.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 6/Feb/18
I suppose he could stretch up to near 187cm
Joah said on 4/Feb/18
Pretty much how i see him 6 1 maybe .5 very heavy.
Well under 6 3s and some 6 2 ers even old guys.
Did have an amazing couple years could get away any claim right now.
just because said on 20/Jan/18
weighing 30 stone and deadlifting 80 stone must have a negative effect on the spine i would guess hes 6ft2
Yuval said on 19/Jan/18
So he is not so tall for a strongman..intresting though he do not look 4 inches shorter them Robert obsert who is 6'6
A Man said on 7/Jan/18
Yeah I'd go a flat 6,1" for Eddie, nothing above that.

6,2.75" for Big Z
6,7.25" for Shaw
6,7.75 for Thor
6,5" Terry Hollands

Here is 6'2" David Horne with Eddie. David is clearly taller than Eddie:
Click Here

Eddie used to get 6'1.5" and 6'2" listings in his early strongman days: 2011-2013. He's since claiming 6'3", even though 6'2" guys are legitimately taller than him.
Alex 6'3 said on 5/Jan/18
186 flat at best.
RandomDude said on 4/Jan/18
needs a downgrade 6'1 no more looks about 2 inches shorter than legit 6'3 big Z
bazza said on 4/Jan/18
i was thinking his height seemed pretty inflated when watching WSM, current listing looks more realistic seems a weak 6'2 at best. Perhaps the 6'3 claim is with his chunky trainers on but no way he is barefoot.
Jacob said on 1/Jan/18
Considering he’s below average height for strong man is crazy definitely would seem nice talking to him on the street
jabuso said on 29/Dec/17
I am 5 '10.5 and i took a pic with him we are about the same height, i say eddie is 5 '10.75
Myself said on 26/Dec/17
In the same video you linked here Rob, Joshua looks shorter or at least same height while sitting, compared to Eddie. Does he have a long inseam? Or maybe it's just that since his legs are longer, the posture he is forced to sit in makes his hip bone to rotate in a way so that his lower back is less straight and more curved.
I read that black people tend to have longer inseam (% of height) compared to asians, and europeans are in the middle of the two.
Editor Rob: remember also if you have a big behind, that can effect sitting height, but I think Anthony does have quite long legs in person.
Blake said on 22/Dec/17
Rob, how tall would you say the youtuber the true geordie is next Eddie Hall? He has claimed 6 ft 4 and 3 on twitter and I buy it
Editor Rob: the True Geordie can look a good inch taller than Eddie.
Jim Hopper said on 20/Dec/17
I saw Eddie in Manchester and I was just about taller than him which was a surprise I am just under 6-2". I think hes around 6-1" mark.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 14/Dec/17
6ft3 looks extreme barefoot but anywhere 6ft1-2 is arguable...
InDefens said on 9/Dec/17
@Rob do you think he might be 6'2 or 6'2.25?
Editor Rob: well his 6ft 3 claim is suspect, I mean with Anthony Joshua he looks well under 6ft 2...you might argue at times Eddie doesn't look much over 6ft 1.

Look at the start of the clip With Anthony and Eddie...looks a good 4 inches
