Chris Hemsworth hits the weights after admitting he feels ‘a bit dusty’

As one of the world’s most in-demand actors, he’s constantly working out to stay in shape for his many film roles.

But Chris Hemsworth hit the weights for a different reason on Sunday, with the Thor star admitting he needed a lift after ‘a few too many celebratory drinks over the weekend.’

‘Woke up this morning, motivation levels at an all-time-low. A bit flat, a little dusty,’ the 38-year-old told his Instagram followers.

However the Extraction actor said he was determined to ‘sweat out the demons’ and so put his body through a gruelling workout.

The father-of-three then outlined his routine, which included lunges, ball slams, push ups and chin ups.

‘And now I feel a hundred percent,’ the actor revealed, before showing video of the high intensity routine.

One of Chris’ many upcoming film roles is in the latest instalment of George Miller’s iconic Mad Max series.  

Mad Max will be making a return to its roots after it was announced that filming for the latest instalment, Furiosa, would take place in Broken Hill, NSW, next April.   

Peter Price, who is the owner of the nearby Silverton hotel, revealed his excitement about the high-octane series coming back to the outback region in an interview with Weekend Today hosts Richard Wilkins and Rebecca Maddern on Saturday.

Wilkins firstly asked Price about how the local residents of Silverton and Broken Hill have reacted to the news. 

‘I’m sure they’re going to be as excited as they were forty years ago,’ Price responded, referring to the production of Mad Max 2, aka The Road Warrior, which took place in the same area four decades earlier. 

‘As much as we’ve always enjoyed Mad Max 2, with the museum here and all that sort of stuff, we are really looking forward to this new film that’s going to be done out this way,’ he said.

The Silverton Hotel owner stated that the production will hopefully bring much-needed tourism dollars to the region, which has suffered due to the Covid pandemic.

‘We’re looking forward to a big influx of tourists coming this way,’ Price continued. ‘Some of this stuff that’s going to happen next year is going to certainly bring that, I’m sure.’

‘Being an Australian movie that was done 40-odd years ago, and it still generates so much interest. We’re getting people everyday coming this way to have a look at the museum.’

Price concluded that the new film would only ‘add to all that’. 

Mad Max Furiosa is set to begin production in Broken Hill next April and is scheduled for release in 2024.
