Hirtelen ezek ugranak be. Idioms for a simple, easy job:

Szövegkörnyezet szerint elképzelhető még sok más variáció is:

A classic American idiom “like shooting fish in a barrel,” meaning “extremely easy; no challenge and with no risk of failure.

walk in the park - an easy job, or a job that poses no difficulty

as easy as pie / ABC / 123 / falling off a log / shooting fish in a barrel / taking candy from a baby; a piece of cake, no sweat

neutral  János Untener: mivel "kifejezetten fizikai feladat, erőpróba" a téma, ezért szerintem a he won't even "break a sweat" jó lenne, amit majdnem írtál, de azért mégsem...
8 mins
  -> a "no sweat" egy kifejezés, ami annyi mint "no problem, he can do it" nem szószerint utal izzadságra...

No hurdle is insurmountable by him


Explanation:
Én mégis maradnék a tagadó formánál, mert ha megfordítjuk az egészet, hogy piece of cake vagy valami hasonló, akkor a feladat könnyűségét hangsúlyozzuk, és az, hogy egy feladat nem fog ki rajta, még nem jelenti azt, hogy könnyen meg tudja oldani, csak azt, hogy valahogyan; lehet, hogy verejtékkel vagy foggal-körömmel. Ugyanezen okból nem használnám a "no sweat" kifejezést sem, hiszen akármennyire jelképes is az, lehet, hogy hősünk verejtékezve fogja megoldani a feladatok némelyikét.

Az insurmountable szót pontosan azért választottam, mert erőpróbáról van szó.

it won't beat you


Explanation:
Egy lehetséges változat.

Az adott témához (ügyességi verseny, "Rajtad nem fog ki egy ilyen feladat sem!") hasonló kontextusban:

You face your nemesis head on with strength and determination. It won’t beat you. You won’t let it. Pumping and pumping, you climb the daunting hill. You reach the top—victory!
http://www.wellesleywestonmagazine.com/sum06/ride.htm

Today I was riding up this massive hill that has defeated me for a while, and I didn't want it to today. So as I was huffing and puffing, I was saying to myself "You can do this. You're fat but it won't beat you. You can do this. You're fat but it won't beat you.
