We all inherit something from our parents and in the case of Joseph Baena, it is the love of bodybuilding. This 23 year old son of Arnold Schwarzenegger is a determined bodybuilder in his own way. Baena works out regularly at Gold’s Gym in Venice Beach and he recently shared his leg day gains in an Instagram post.
Baena showed off her quads in skinny shorts that barely covered her thighs. The 23-year-old also opted to go shirtless and showed his muscular upper body in the post. While there is still a long way to go, Baena looked quite like her father while flexing his muscles to show the ripped physique.
“Friyay legs! What did you exercise today? Joseph Baena wrote.
Actor and professional wrestler Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is always at the forefront when it comes to setting men’s body image trends in fitness. The trend to wear ‘barely there’ shorts to put quads on full display can be attributed to Johnson – who donned the look for the first time in an Instagram post in late 2020.
For the uninitiated, Joseph Baena is one of four children of Arnold Schwarzenegger. Baena and Arnold train together frequently, and Baena said earlier that training with ‘The Terminator’ is the ultimate experience. The father-son duo hit Gold’s Gym together when gyms reopened after the lockdown imposed by Covid. Joseph posted a workout selfie with Arnold afterwards. The 23-year-old admired his father’s approach to training and thanked him for helping ‘get all the reps’ in the caption:
“This selfie was taken moments before my dad suggested I do ‘forced performances’ for the rest of the workout. You have to go all out and absolutely NO cheating when training with him, so you know. that I’m going to be sore tomorrow. Row overload, bench press, pull downs etc … luckily my training partner helped me get every rep. This is another great approach to training and a way fantastic to develop your size and strength! Try it with your training partner “
Baena regularly posts workout photos to her Instagram account and has recreated some of Arnold’s most famous poses for his social media posts. Arnold Schwarzenegger is seven times Mr. Olympia and Joseph Baena seems to follow his father’s path. He expressed his interest in participating in bodybuilding competitions himself..
It is obvious that ‘The Terminator’ will be Joseph Baena’s training partner and guide if he takes this path. The fact that there is very little left beyond Arnold’s wealth of bodybuilding knowledge will greatly increase Baena’s chances of a successful bodybuilding career.
