The mountain tore his shirt off and worked out on the treadmill
TikTok isn’t just a place to go if you want to feel old, it’s also a constant source of new fitness trends and challenges that range from the helpful to the downright ridiculous.
There was the “Broom Challenge” which tests your strength and mobility, the “Cake Challenge” which will show if you skipped Leg Day, and the Handstand Clock which requires nothing less than flawless strength and balance. Then there are the fake ones, like a hack to make your arms more vascular, and the workout that claims to make you better in bed by improving your hip game.
Some, however, are just a bit of harmless fun, like the latest set of videos in which gym goers spice up their cardio sessions by treating their treadmill like it’s a week-long parade. fashion. The clips are all accompanied by the on-screen caption “every day fight the urge to walk on the treadmill” and set to the 2007 banger “The Way I Are” by Timbaland, Keri Hilson, DOE and Sebastian.
Hafthor Bjornsson, former World’s Strongest Man titleholder (known to HBO subscribers as The Mountain from Game of Thrones) shared his own contribution to the trend, but he added an additional one. As well as showing off his best leg on the podium, he also ripped off his shirt to reveal the lean, shredded physique he’s been sculpting since retiring from competitive strength sports two years ago.
Bjornsson has been chronicling his body transformation on YouTube and Instagram as he goes through the process of losing over 100 pounds and embarking on intense boxing training and conditioning ahead of his grudge match against fellow fighter-turned-fighter Eddie Lobby.
Their fight has been rescheduled to take place on March 19 in Dubai. Regardless of the outcome, it looks like Bjornsson will enter the ring with nerve aplenty.
