Chris Hemsworth shows off strength training with Arnold Schwarzenegger…who compliments him on “how pumped up you are!”
Chris Hemsworth made hearts flutter by sharing a photo of him and Arnold Schwarzenegger together after a workout.
The 39-year-old Thor beef modeled in a white tank top that allowed him to fully show off his muscular arms.
‘You never know who you’ll run into at the gym!’ joked Chris while posting the photo on Twitter. “What a dream to train with the one and only @Schwarzenegger.”
Arnie, 75, who rose to fame as a bodybuilder long before his movie stardom, quoted the tweet and wrote to Chris, “Look how pumped up you are!”
Their photo comes two weeks after the two action hunks co-starred in a new commercial for Netflix, where they both have hot new projects.

Arnold stars in streaming service FUBAR’s action comedy series, which dropped its first season less than a month ago.
FUBAR features Arnie and Monica Barbaro as a father-daughter duo who are each shocked to learn the other is in the CIA.
Along with FUBAR, Arnie is also the subject of a new Netflix docuseries, consisting of three episodes detailing his extraordinary life and multiple careers.
Meanwhile, Chris is the dashing lead in Netflix’s Extraction film series, the second installment of which is out this Friday.
In their new Netflix commercial, Chris bumps into Arnie in an elevator and tries to chat up his idol – only to be somewhat deflated when the older action star starts giving him hopelessly cheesy catchphrases for the upcoming Extraction movie.
While Chris ‘bulged’ in a natural way during their last training session, Arnie was candid that his own methods weren’t always so orthodox.
Arnie took steroids legally as a young bodybuilder and recounted the experience decades later when he was governor of California.
He did not endorse steroids for contemporary use, but said ABC News: “I have no regrets about it because at the time it was something new that came on the market, and we went to the doctor and we did it under the supervision of doctors.”

The “Gubernator” explained: “We were experimenting with it. It was new. So you can’t go back and say, “Now I would change my mind about this.” ‘
Arnold told Men’s Health last May that in the days of steroids, he took 100 milligrams of testosterone per week and 15 milligrams of Dianabol per day.
However, he pointed out that the climate for taking steroids has changed drastically, now that the drugs have been banned in America and bodybuilders no longer buy them like he used to, on the expert advice of a doctor.
“Bodybuilding has always, always been considered a safe sport,” he said. ‘But now that is no longer the case. Now people are dying – they’re dying from drug overdoses and they don’t know what they’re doing. They listen to charlatans. If I want to get medical advice from a doctor, I go to UCLA or I go to the Cleveland Clinic.
In 1970, at the age of 23, he became the youngest winner of the Mr. Olympia bodybuilding title, but he retired from the sport a decade later.
