Hafþór Björnsson squats 880 pounds in preparation for his first powerlifting meeting



At 400 pounds, haters can say that Hafþór Björnsson's 880-pound squat is only twice his body weight, but 880 pounds is 880 pounds – and that's damned impressive.

The winner of the 2018 World Champion is not – I repeat, NOT – a powerlifter. His deadlift is strong because it needs to be able to pick up all the heavy items on different Strongman shows off the ground, but to be a relatively untrained squatter moving that kind of weight is testament to its raw power. (Think about it, "Thor" rarely has to squat lower than a quarter stool to collect egg yolk or press on a block of wood.)

But it's a good thing he practices since he's in Thors Powerlifting Challenge "meeting" meeting on December 1

5 in Laugardalshöll, Reykjavík, Iceland. We will keep you up to date with its progress and results at the meeting, but until then take a look at this impressive cast.
