Chris Hemsworth is giving The Rock a run for his money with a mind-blowing display of muscle and - it would seem - veins. The Australian actor, who bulked up for his MCU role as Thor, has been showing off his ripped body as he prepares for Extraction 2, and the photo isn't for the faint-hearted.

Prepping for the Hulk Hogan biopic, Chris has been keeping his 51 million+ Instagram followers updated on the training front - he was "six weeks out" in the below photo.

Scroll for the photo. The 38-year-old Melbourne native, who has built a "bulletproof rig" from trainers, nutritionists, plus his Centr app's team, posted a photo straight from the gym. Embracing his sweat session while pumping iron, Chris was seen dragging two heavy weighted chains towards his core, flexing his bulging biceps and grimacing as he did it.

Chris wore dark pants and a basic training tank - plenty of arm on show as the Hollywood hunk packed on even more muscle.

Also highlighting one very healthy-looking set of veins as he flaunted his low body-fat percentage, the actor took his caption, telling fans: "Six weeks out from shooting on Extraction 2 feelin good and ready. Shout out to my team at @centrfit for giving me all the tools I need for a bulletproof rigπŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ."

Over 4 million likes have been left, including one from Wonder Woman actress and fellow fitness enthusiast Gal Gadot. "Coming in overweight again I see," the leading reply amusingly reads. More after the snap.

Bodybuilding 'Seen As A Vanity'

Addressing piling on the muscle in April 2021 as he spoke to Men's Health, Hemsworth spoke of attitudes towards bodies - regardless of whether it's fit or not-so-fit.

"There's an aesthetic that the role requires. Bodybuilding is seen as vanity, whereas if I put on a bunch of unhealthy weight, or got unhealthily skinny for a role, I'd probably be called a serious actor," he said, adding: "The training across 10 years of doing it is a full-time job."

A 'Real Grind'

The man behind character Tyler Rake continued: "That and then a 12-hour shooting day – it's real grind. It's incredibly rewarding, too – you have to look at it like a professional athlete."

No pain, no gain might be the attitude in the gym, but the massive pizza cheat days are there, too. A photo, seen below, showed Chris enjoying his calories like a pro last month as he wrote: "Just landed in LA and thought I’d kick things off with a super light healthy meal πŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ."
