  • Hafþór Björnsson, better known as the Mountain that Rides on HBO's Game of Thrones, isn't just one of the strongest people on TV. He's one of the strongest people in the world. How did this lean and mean Icelander become the most fearsome knight in all of Westeros? It hasn't always been pretty. Bjornsson was always a big person, but before he was the freakishly huge "mad dog of the Lannisters," he was more tall than he was wide. Instead of weightlifting, he put his talents to use as a professional basketball player in Iceland's first division. As a younger man, Bjornsson says his weight hovered around the 230 pound range — which is nothing compared to the near-400 pounds he eventually achieved. He said in an interview with GQ, "I was always taller than everybody else. I’ve been training all my life, but probably didn’t grow muscle-y until I quit doing basketball." His naturally large frame gave him a big advantage on the basketball court, but he also was dedicated to working out and getting better. Speaking to Men's Health, he said, "I was a bit crazy and trained a lot, probably three times a day. Before school, then afterwards, plus I was lifting at night." His intense work ethic paid off on the court, but his basketball days were plagued by a recurring ankle injury which ultimately dashed his hoop dreams. After basketball, Björnsson wasn't sure what to do with himself. Already accustomed to a heavy training regimen, Björnsson decided to stay the course and keep working out. But instead of going hard in the paint, he went to work in the weight room, focusing his energy on simply improving his body.

    It was ridiculous that espn tried to “expose” him for steroid use. Every single strongman competing at that level uses steroids, its just apart of the sport. You think he’s 400+ pounds with visible abs all natural.😂

    Hafthor Julius Bjornsson didn't get "ripped for game of thrones", he is a professional strongman that appears in game of thrones.

    Well no sit he takes steroids. There is no profesional strongman/bodybuilder/powerlifter who doesnt take steroids.

    So much respect for him that he admitted to using steroids. It's a fact of the sport and anyone who thinks even half of this is plausible without it is delusional.

    Are we supposed to be surprised he did steroids? Everyone in that line of work does them. Even a lot of the average Joe's you see down the gym do them.

    If you didn't know Thor took steroids, than you shouldn't be allowed to drive or vote.

    I dont think you and this youtube channel understand what ripped means in fitness. Ripped is muscly and about 6% body fat. Thor has like 20%
