Arnold Schwarzenegger’s son Joseph Baena flaunts ripped physique in shirtless new pictures

Joseph Baena, the lookalike son of legendary bodybuilder Arnold Schwarzenegger, flaunted his ripped physique for Instagram Friday when he posted three shirtless pictures.

‘Too much turkey,’ captioned the 25-year-old fitness influencer.

But Baena showed no signs of bloat in his brawny pictures, flexing his muscles and showcasing his incredible abs.

Hasta la vista, calories: Joseph Baena, the 25-year-old lookalike son of legendary bodybuilder Arnold Schwarzenegger, flaunted his ripped physique for Instagram Friday when he posted three shirtless pictures

The eliminated Dancing with the Stars contestant – who recently revealed that he was bullied in high school for being overweight – proved that the ballroom did his body some good when he posed on a rooftop gym.

Wearing nothing but tiny black gym shorts, Baena curled his left arm and sucked in his stomach, allowing his muscles to do what they do best – bulge. 

His calves and thighs protruded with bulk and definition while his unassuming expression failed to hide the fact that he is the spitting image of his 75-year-old superstar father in almost every way. 

The aspiring actor then extended his arms and flattened his stomach, summoning the washboard of his torso for all of Instagram to see. 

Thankful for fitness: 'Too much turkey,' captioned the fitness influencer. But Baena showed no signs of Thanksgiving Day bloat in his brawny pictures, flexing his muscles and showcasing his incredible abs

‘Gees Joe!!’ commented Dancing with the Stars champion Emma Slater, 33.

‘Helleloo,’ joked Baena’s fellow competitor Shangela, 41. 

‘Quadzillaaaaa,’ wrote one of Joseph’s 400,000 Instagram followers. 

While Joseph currently works as a real estate agent, he has been putting in the footwork to become a working actor like his Terminator dad.

In fact, he recently landed his first major role in John Malkovich’s upcoming sci-fi film Chariot.

Earlier this year, Joseph told Men’s Health that he was eventually able to connect with his father over their shared love for bodybuilding and fitness.

The pair are often seen pumping iron together in Los Angeles and Baena even dressed up like Arnold’s iconic hero Conan the Barbarian for Dancing with the Stars.

To help with Joseph’s training, Schwarzenegger ended up giving him a copy of The Encyclopedia Of Modern Bodybuilding, co-authored by the seven-time Mr. Olympia champion and considered by many to be the Bible of bodybuilding.

‘Even though I could call him anytime, I was too proud,’ Joseph confessed of their relationship to Men’s Health. 

His mother is the former California governor’s former housekeeper, Mildred Baena, which ultimately contributed to the infamous breakup between Schwarzenegger and his wife of 25 years, Maria Shriver, 67.   

‘My dad is old school,’ said Baena. ‘He doesn’t believe in handouts. He believes hard work pays off, and so do I.’

The up-and-coming action star went on to describe his ‘love’ for the word ‘honor,’ and said: ‘I’m very prideful in the sense that if I use my dad’s contacts or ask him for favors, I wonder what honor is that gonna bring me?’
