The Mountain From 'GoT' Revealed His Training Regimen And It's Unreal
If you know anything about "Game of Thrones" star Hafthór "Thor" Björnsson, you know he is a monster of an athlete.
Not only is Thor a former professional basketball player who could've played in the NFL as well, but he's also appropriately named "The Mountain" on "GoT."
What many people don't know, however, is Thor also holds Europe's Strongest Man title and competes in other strength competitions like the Arnold Classic in Melbourne, named after Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Going for these titles requires a lot of work, of course, and Thor recently revealed the insane diet he sticks to in order to maintain his strength and compete.
Here are the rules he follows, according to Daily Mail:
Thor eats every two hours, amounting to eating between six to eight times a day. He takes in 10,000 calories a day, with a typical breakfast featuring oatmeal, fruits and eight eggs.
He also reportedly spends three hours in the gym per day, using hot and cold baths to help him recover.
Clearly, his methods worked. Seven years ago, he weighed in at around 240 pounds, he told GQ.
Now, Thor is accustomed to showing off his strength by pulling off huge feats, like breaking a 1,000-year-old Viking record by lifting a 1,500-pound log.
Sheesh. And we thought The Rock's training methods were crazy.
