So This Is How Chris Hemsworth Gets Those Rock-Hard Abs to Play Thor

In case you needed some motivation to work up a sweat today, this video of Chris Hemsworth exercising should do the trick. On Saturday, the Thor actor uploaded a one-minute video on his Instagram page featuring an intense workout session with his trainer. “Gettin it done with the worlds best trainer,” he wrote under the clip, which already has over 1 million views at press time.

In 2011, Hemsworth opened up about the rigorous training it took to transform into the iconic Marvel superhero, telling the Associated Press, “The workout was probably more difficult than the actual filming. My body doesn’t sit naturally that wide so I was consuming many, many calories, proteins, and working out 6, [or] 7 days a week.” From the looks of his chiseled chest, abs, and arms, we’d say it was all worth it. Watch his ridiculously sexy workout video above.
