Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, commonly recognised as The Mountain on Game of Thrones, has been one of the top-three World’s Strongest Man competitors for the past five years. He’s dragged a bus. He’s decapitated a horse. He’s flipped monster truck tires (only one of those is from GoT). Now, in anticipation of bringing home his first title in 2017, Björnsson is putting in some serious work. This week, the actor and fitness freak took to Instagram to put his dedication on display.

That’s a pair of 300kg squat reps, nothing more. Something tells us The Mountain could’ve gone for more, but there’s a balance between intimidating your opponents and revealing all your secrets. Plus, the next day, he came back with this casual ten-rep bench set…at 220kg. Dude’s ready to crush some skulls come World’s Strongest Man 2017 (figuratively, of course).
