If you’re a “Game of Thrones” fan, then you know The Mountain.
The Mountain, played by Icelandic actor Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, is freaky, blood-eyed, giant protector of the ruthless Queen Mother, Cersei. In real life, Björnsson has won Iceland’s Strongest Man competition five years in a row, and he is preparing to compete for the World’s Strongest Man title.
And he might just win, because he is a massively muscled dude who can do things like this:
But it might surprise you that one of his favorite training buddies is his tiny dog, Asterix. Asterix is a 12-week-old Pomeranian who appears to be the size of Björnsson’s hand. So the video the actor uploaded to Instagram of two of them getting their cardio on side by side is about as adorable as you’d expect.
The most cardio I’ve done in years!!#TimeForPizza #Asterix&Obelix @asterix_astrikur A video posted by Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson (@thorbjornsson) on
Despite his small size, we wouldn’t underestimate the ferocity of this tiny pup. Especially with The Mountain as his owner.
And you do not want to see The Mountain angry….
