KTVI – Prepare yourselves: season 5 of Game of Thrones is coming. To get you in the mood, here’s actor/strongman Hafthór Júlíus Björnsson tossing a 56-pound weight nearly 20-feet in the air at the Arnold Classic last weekend:

I had ups & downs at the Arnold Strongman Classic this past weekend. I did an awful mistake in the deadlift which cost me alot of points! Yesterday made me feel a little bit better though. I did a weight for height event on the main stage. I went over 19'3 with a 56lbs weight and that is a New World Record!!
On the show, Björnsson plays a character named “The Mountain.” Never has a person been more fit for a role.
Oh, and last month Björnsson broke a thousand-year-old record to win the title of World’s Strongest Viking. I’m not making that up…
