Hafþór Júlíus “Thor” Björnsson, the Icelandic professional strongman better known as “The Mountain” from HBO’s Game of Thrones, was recently shaping up for an upcoming competition in the gym – in the company of none other than Steve Cook, the insanely ripped IFBB pro.
They met in a hardcore underground gym in Stockholm for a 40-minute heavy lifting session. As you can imagine, the Mountain was only too glad to push Cook to his limits, proving himself to be an outstanding coach, but the fitness model took it rather well.
After all, both of these guys are on the top of their field – yet they managed to step out of their everyday roles and have some good old fashioned fun in the gym. And Hafbor proved himself as an outstanding coach! Maybe this pair should hit the gym together more often.
Check out the video they made on this occasion:

“My body feels like it got ran over by a semi truck! The most sore I’ve ever been!”
Some say that powerlifting wasn’t made for pretty boys. What do you think?
