Hafthor Bjornsson, aka, "The Mountain" from Game of Thrones is set to compete in his 8th Arnold Classic Strongman competition. He'll be battling fellow Strongman Brian Shaw for the title, among others. Check out his "Road to the Arnold" video and watch as he prepares to go head to head with some of the strongest men on earth! Besides being outrageously strong, he comes off like being a pretty regular dude...who just happens to be monstrously strong.

There are so many competitions going on at the Arnold Classic, including women's powerlifting. Check out first time powerlifting competitor Dana Linn Bailey at 6 days out. Normally, she's a physique competitor, but this year she's switching it up. I'm a big fan of hers...check her out.
