Men’s Health caught up with Game of Thrones‘s The Mountain, aka Hafþór Björnsson, to find out what a day in the life of a professional strongman is like.
We begin by seeing the Icelandic actor’s dinner feast — rib eye steaks, two forms of carbohydrates, cheese sauce, and a few vegetables to round it off. We then get a glimpse into Björnsson’s insane weight lifting regime, before he soothes his muscles in a contrast bath.
But being a strongman isn’t without its drawbacks. Björnsson reveals that he finds it hard to sleep at his current competing weight, as he’s naturally a lot smaller.
Watch the video above.
