Hafthor Bjornsson aka The Mountain aka Thor has undergone a stunning physical transformation in the past year. After winning his 10th consecutive Iceland’s strongest man competition in August 2020, he officially retired as a strongman in order to focus on refocusing his training around boxing. Since then, he has dramatically reduced his once massive physique, losing 110 pounds and shredding his abs while engaging in a grueling physical regimen designed to improve his speed, mobility and endurance.
Bjornsson has kept his fans updated on his progress every step of the way and recently celebrated how far he has come with a shirtless selfie that shows in clear terms the results of his hard work. âTraining completed! He wrote on Instagram. âHard work pays off! I keep proving it to myself! Set goals and pursue them! “
The old Game Of Thrones stars The strongman-to-boxer journey, for much of its duration, led to a very specific endgame: a fight between Bjornsson and his longtime rival Eddie Hall, who also pivoted to boxing over the years. last two years. However, Hall was forced to retire from the long-awaited and highly anticipated “heaviest fight in the world” last month, after sustaining an injury during his training that resulted in a loose bicep.
Instead, Bjornsson will face arm wrestling champion Devon Larratt on September 18. It won’t be quite the grudge match fans have been expecting – Bjornsson and Larratt are actually on pretty friendly terms – but at the very least, it will be interesting to see Bjornsson use everything he’s learned at the over the past year in the ring.
