Joseph Baena knows a thing or two about pumping iron. After all, his father is none other than seven-time Mr. Olympia champion and bodybuilding legend Arnold Schwarzenegger. Baena regularly pays homage to his famous dad on his Instagram page, recreating some of his most iconic bodybuilding poses in photos which make the family resemblance impossible to miss.
A competitive bodybuilder in his own right, Baena is dedicated to his training, from cryotherapy recovery sessions, to working out with giants like former Mr. Universe winner Mike “Titan” O’Hearn. He even had a gym-themed birthday party, and spent pretty much all of 2020 working out from his home gym while in quarantine.
He is also a mainstay at Gold’s Gym in Venice Beach, where he frequently works out with Schwarzenegger. He’s previously called him the “best training partner in the world,” and in a recent gym selfie together, revealed that his dad doesn’t go easy on him: “You have to go all out and absolutely NO cheating when you’re training with him,” he said.
In his latest Instagram post, Baena shows off the results of all that rigorous bodybuilding training in the most on-brand, like-father-like-son way possible: by stripping to the waist and striking a series of classic poses.
“Finally a sunny week in LA,” he said. “Gotta take advantage.”
