Having suffered a couple of gym mishaps himself, Hall found the video relatable. Reacting to each clip, The Beast was shocked to see the person in the video drop the barbell on his chest while doing a heavy bench press. As an expert, Hall quickly realized that the person was attempting a ‘suicide grip’. But while doing so, he failed miserably.

 

Seeing the failed attempt, The Beast could not help but exclaim, “Ohhhhh… That’s what you get for doing a suicide grip.” Though the clip attracted a few laughs, it also gave away a crucial message about following safety protocols. It was pretty evident that the person in the frame ended up hurting himself. “That’s hurt”, Hall remarked.

For Eddie Hall, safety in the gym is a priority. This was recently put on display when Hall was accompanied by his son Maximus, on a recent session at the gym.
