Fitness runs in the family! Chris Hemsworth’s dad Craig, 67, keeps up with his Thor star son as they engage in a sweaty Father’s Day workout
Chris Hemsworth has shared a sweaty workout with his dad Craig, 67, to celebrate Father’s Day in Australia.
The 39-year-old actor uploaded an Instagram clip on Sunday showing him doing a heavy workout at the gym with his dad.
“I just had a really fun training session with my dad and thought I’d teach him a thing or two but turns out the old dog has a few tricks up his sleeve,” Chris wrote alongside the video.

The father-son duo’s workout included 12 bicep curls with heavy dumbbells.
Chris went on to show the pair how to do push-up claps, complete 10 reps, and do a farmer’s carry for 10 yards.
The pair then progressed to the “medicine ball pass” for 10 reps and the “medicine ball pass front squat” for another 10 reps.

Chris was keen to give credit to his dad, who he’s been training with at the gym since they were kids.
“Some of my greatest memories from my childhood are training with my dad,” he began nostalgically.
Chris went on to reveal that when he was a kid, his dad made him a hurdle out of a piece of wood.

“I used to compete in the 110m hurdles, but I didn’t have enough space to train because we lived on a very steep hill,” he said.
“My dad built me a single hurdle out of wood and I used the 15 meter climb, which we had to practice over and over again.”
“Just him and me, until the sun went down, having fun, laughing. With his help I got 2 state medals. Here, after 25 years, we are still laughing and still moving.

He ended by wishing his father a “happy Father’s Day”.
It comes after Chris wrapped up filming on Mad Max prequel Furiosa in Sydney last week.
The film features a small cameo appearance of his father playing a post-apocalyptic biker.

Film fans will be happy to see that filming has resumed after production halted earlier this month after director George Miller caught Covid-19.
Miller, 77, is understood to have tested positive and has had to isolate at his Sydney home.
Furiosa is a 2015 prequel to Mad Max: Fury Road, starring actress Anya Taylor-Joy as the title character.
Furiosa began production at Broken Hill in April, with scenes also being filmed at various locations in New South Wales.
