Case in point: the latest video the 37-year-old Australian actor has posted to Instagram, which shows himself and Paul Fisher, an Australian music producer who goes by the name FISHER undergoing a manic session in the Chris’ Centrfit lab.
FISHER was nominated for the 2018 ARIA Award for Best Dance Release as well as the Best Dance Recording category at the 61st Annual Grammy Awards for his solo single Losing It – but that meant nothing in the gym as he and Hemsworth brutally cajoled each other in what some on Instagram reckon is the most Australian thing ever.
“If Australia was a video,” one commenter remarked.
In the video, the pair can be seen doing cable pulls (with FISHER filming Chris from a “terrible angle”), assault biking, bicep curls, shoulder presses, sled pushing, medicine ball pounding, shoulder shrugs and wrestling.
There is also a moment where FISHER chastised Chris (presumably for grunting), saying, “Do you mind mate?” – to which Chris responds, “Shut up.”
There is also a cameo where they scream at each other “Eye of the what!?” with the required response being… “Tiger!”
They – and their Instagram followers – found it all a great old lark, with comments ranging from: “I never thought Thor would wind up being the funniest Avenger” to “I need this energy when I’m working out.”
Two further top comments included: “Me and the boys during gym in highschool” and “The bromance we never knew we needed.”
The workouts appear to be paying off, with recent images of Chris showing a set of arms that would put a California Red Oak to shame.
Chris has a bunch of movies in the making, with Thor: Love and Thunder due in 2022, Furiosa set for 2023 and Mad Max: The Wasteland in the works for 2023.
