Watch: The Mountain Presses A 284-Pound Dumbbell Over His Head

mountain dumbbellIn a yet another crazy weight lifting feat, Hafthór Björnsson aka ‘The Mountain’ from Game of Thrones recently posted a video to his Instagram account, which shows him pressing a 284.4 pound (129 kg) dumbbell over his head. Nicknamed as ‘Thor’s Dumbbell’ by the icelandic strongman, the free weight equipment has a very small grip which makes the pressing even more difficult. Unsurprisingly, the press also (unofficially) beats the current world record. Check out the video below.
