    This dude's strength is unbelievable... looked like he wasn't even trying.

    ***********

    The following is one of those weird moments in life where you watch something and honestly don't understand how what you saw is possible.

    This is probably because every instinct you have insists there is no way anyone could easily beat Thor "The Mountain" Bjornsson in an arm-wrestling match.

    You'd concede there are probably a few people on the planet whocould beat the man who plays Ser Gregor Clegane on HBO's Game of Thrones, but it'd be a tough battle, seeing as he's 6'9", 400 pounds and—you know—Europe's Strongest Man.

    But that's exactly what you're watching: Bjornsson being handily beaten time and again in a friendly arm-wrestling competition against Canadian pulling titan Devon Larratt.

    A two-time World Armwrestling League champion, Larratt took on Bjornsson one arm at a time.

    He's strong, but in the Worlds Strongest Man competition, a Lithuanian finished ahead of him in 2014, and an American won this year with the Lithuanian second and the Mountain 3rd.

    He's a little overweight and has massive shoulders that will not help in arm wrestling imo. It just makes him look bigger. The guy who beat him has great muscle structure while being thin.

    When I was 19 I arm wrestled a guy who was 6'3" 325 while I was lil 5'11" 175-took him down both left and right hand, embarrassed the fuck outta him after he talked shit. Get this, he was left handed, I'm not. It's all tricep/bicep and forearm.

    This is worth watching if you are into arm wrestling. I think it is a great sport... simple as it gets... and a lot of different personalities.
