At his peak, Big Ron could deadlift 800 pounds of weight. But there is someone who makes Ron’s deadlifting abilities look like a walk in the park. And he impresses even Coleman.

Ronnie Coleman discusses Hafthor Bjornsson

Coleman is one of the most successful bodybuilders of all time. He holds the record for most wins as an IFBB professional (26) and the record for most consecutive Mr. Olympia titles (8). With many wins under his belt, it is a given that Ronnie spent a lot of time in the gym. Weight training is essential in a bodybuilder’s regime, and Coleman knows a thing or two about it.

Known across the globe for his ripped physique, and unparalleled physical attributes, there isn’t much that impresses Coleman. But there is one man who has achieved remarkable feats of strength and has Ronnie in awe of him. Icelandic strongman Hafthor Bjornsson is a force to be reckoned with.

Notably, he is also an actor who played the role of Gregor ‘The Mountain’ Clegane in the famous HBO series, ‘Game of Thrones.’ Owing to the success of the series, Bjornsson has a net worth of about $2million.

Speaking about him in Joe Rogan’s podcast, Coleman said, “Like this guy, I can’t remember his name, but he deadlifted 1100 pounds.” Joe reminded him of the name as he said, “that Game of Thrones guy, The Mountain.” That’s when Coleman said, “Yeah, that’s a gift, you know, that’s talent. Yeah, he’s gifted, everybody can’t do that. I did 800, you know, for a couple of reps, but I don’t think I can do 1100. That’s a lot of weight.”

Coming from arguably the greatest bodybuilder, this was a perfect compliment for Hafthor.
