The actor who played Viktor Krum in Harry Potter is absolutely shredded these days

He's in absolutely monstrous form

Stan Yanevski, the actor who played Victor Krum in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, may not be a household name, but these days the 33-year-old looks capable of actually destroying your house and punching his name into the foundations so that you never forget it.

The Bulgarian actor is all over Instagram, documenting his training, which, as you might imagine, features a lot of heavy things and him lifting those heavy things up and down until massiveness is achieved.

Here he is in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

And here he is now

Here he is, doing some of the heavy lifting. The things go up, and then they go back down again, hence why his arms are so incomprehensibly big. I'm no gym expert, but I believe the technical term is 'swole'.

How has he achieved his impressive physique? In one Instagram post he wrote: "So the answer to how I do it is I lift heavy and never give up, challenge my body and dream big."

(There were a lot of hashtags in that particular post, so forgive us for snipping them out, Stan.)

In Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Yanevski played Bulgarian Quidditch star Viktor Krum, who was named champion for Durmstrang, the European wizarding school competing alongside Hogwarts in the Goblet of Fire tournament. Krum falls for Hermione, saying that "never felt this way about a girl before."

Outside of Harry Potter (and his big old arms), Yanevski appeared in Eli Roth's horror bonanza Hostel II, and 2011's Resistance, starring alongside Michael Sheen and Andrea Riseborough.
