The word “beast” doesn’t do Eddie Hall justice.

At the appropriately named World Deadlift Championships on Saturday, Hall broke his own record with a 1,020-pound deadlift. Afterward, he got really fired up.

As relayed by Ben Kenyon of Joe.co.uk, Hall beat out Thor Bjornsson, who plays The Mountain in HBO’s Game of Thrones, by over 28 pounds in the deadlift competition.

Don’t get on this guy’s bad side.
