The Mountain From 'Game of Thrones' Broke a Deadlifting World Record

On Game of Thrones, Gregor Clegane was the biggest, strongest dude this side of Wun Wun. —Hafthor Bjornsson is a real-life strongman, and he just set a world record by deadlifting a full 1,104 pounds.

Why Now Is The Time To Start Meditating

Just 10 or 15 minutes of this a day over the following few weeks gave me a few things I hadn’t been able to find for a while: some fleeting semblance of relaxation, a nod towards a routine and a temporary pause on the scattergun thoughts flying around my head at high speed. In the years since, I’ve read books, done a zen class (uncomfortable), kept it up, let it slip, done a transcendental course, been given a mantra, picked it up again, forgotten my mantra, tried it in churches (surprisingly noisy), All Cure Or Performance EnhancerIn recent years, we’ve been blitzed with how we ‘should’ all be doing meditation, often from Silicon Valley CEOs and the life hack brigade who expound on how it helps them perform ‘optimally’ at work by increasing focus for 20 hour shifts. If you keep it up, you may find it starts to seep in to your everyday life too, when you can pay attention to your breath, bring yourself back to the present moment and focus on what you’re doing right now.

Winston Duke, Star of 'Black Panther' and 'Us,' Wants to Shatter Your Expectations

That’s what makes Winston Duke’s genre fluidity all the more impressive—even with a can’t-miss physique, he sinks with ease into roles as disparate as comic-book hero, drug lord, and highbrow-horror protagonist. Printed shirt ($600) by Pyer Moss; shirt ($248) by Boss; vintage trousers from Early Halloween,NYC; loafers ($110) by G. H. Bass & Co. Around 20 years and two acting degrees later (from the University at Buffalo and the Yale School of Drama), Duke captured the public’s imagination with Black Panther, last year’s highest-grossing film, in which he costarred as M’Baku, the scene-stealing leader of a renegade Wakandan tribe. This month, Duke takes the lead in Us, Jordan Peele’s highly anticipated chaser to Get Out, a debut feature that handily won the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay, grossed more than $250 million at the box office, and upended expectations of what a horror film can be. It’s a powerful statement,” he says, “that this is a movie with a family of African descent as the leads in a genre that usually uses them as sacrifices or plot momentum—the black friend gets killed in the forest, the black friend gets killed first.
