The Mountain From GoT Breaks Age-Old Weightlifting Record

Hafthor-Bjornsson, Wightlifting

Remember The Mountain from Game of Thrones? You know, the towering psychopathic knight that loves to chop heads off? To our surprise, the actor that plays him is ridiculously strong in real life and has broken a 1000-year-old Icelandic weightlifting record.

Measuring 6 foot 9 inches tall, 26-year-old strongman Hafthor Bjornsson is the first man since the Viking days to carry a massive 640 kg (1410 lbs.) log on his shoulders for five steps.

Watch his record-breaking feat and let us know what you think:

Now before you call Hafthor’s feat unimpressive, consider that the world record squat is actually less than 500 kg (1,102 lbs). The fact that his body can even support a log that heavy is impressive enough and makes him nearly superhuman.

What is the heaviest weight you can carry, be it at a gym or anywhere else.
