Chris Hemsworth Is Putting In Work Ahead Of Furiosa Premiere

Chris Hemsworth is putting in work ahead of the ‘Furiosa’ premiere

The actor has released a new upper body workout video as he gets himself ready for the red carpet

AUSSIE ACTOR CHRIS HEMSWORTH has got a big week ahead of him with the release of Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga, premiering in Sydney this week.

Hemsworth, who plays Warlord Dementus in the film, will walk the red carpet along with Anya Taylor-Joy and director George Miller, to promote the next instalment in the iconic post-apocalyptic franchise. And it appears the actor has been hitting the gym ahead of the movie’s release, highlighting an upper body chest workout from his fitness app Centr’s Powershred program this morning.

In the moody video, the 40-year-old actor stares purposefully at the camera before launching into a series of upper-body exercises, accompanied by an upbeat guitar-led soundtrack.

The workout comprises supersets of classic upper body moves like the dumbbell incline chest press and biceps curl, the kind of exercises designed to add bulk to fill out a well-cut suit.

Furiosa marks Hemsworth’s return to the big screen after the actor announced in 2022 that he has two copies of the gene APOE e4, which is linked to an increased risk of Alzheimer’s disease. The Marvel star is “between eight and 10 times” likelier to develop the progressive disorder than the general population.

Hemsworth, who took a genetic test for Limitless with Chris Hemsworth, the Nat Geo documentary series on longevity, was shocked by the results.

“You’re constantly thinking you’re going to live forever, especially as a young individual,” Hemsworth said on Limitless. “Then to be told that this might be the thing that might take you out was like, whoa – it kinda floored me.”

Hemsworth also told Men’s Health US: “I’ve always been pretty consistent with my exercise commitments, but lately, I’ve really felt the importance of taking time for yourself without any outside voice or stimulation and making time for stillness.

“My weight fluctuates a lot due to differing roles and also my own interests in regards to challenging my body in different ways, I’m lifting less frequently than I was and I’m incorporating more cardio and endurance workouts which I much prefer than heavy body-building style sessions.”

Hemsworth certainly looks in great shape in the latest video. Here’s a look at his upper-body workout:

1 Dumbbell Incline Chest Press – 12 reps
Dumbbell Push-up – 10 reps
Rest 60 sec x 4 sets

2 Dumbbell Clean & Snatch – 10 reps each side
