Talk about a chip off the old block!

Joseph Baena – the 22-year-old son of former bodybuilder-turned Hollywood actor Arnold Schwarzenegger – was the spitting image of his famous father when he flexed his impressive body on Instagram recently.

“Perfect time to practice some posing,” he captioned it as he showed off his muscular physique.

The pose was almost identical to one taken of the Terminator star in October 1976 when he was 29.

Joseph, whose mom is Arnie’s former housekeeper Mildred Baena who Arnie (72) had an affair with, is an aspiring actor and fitness buff who regularly posts workout photos and videos on Instagram.

In an interview last year he praised his dad, who he says he often works out with. “I love my dad! We hang out all the time, he’s a great father! That’s really all I have to say about him. We train together, eat together. We do many things together,” he told HollywoodLife.

Arnie won the Mr Universe title at the age of 20 before winning the Mr Olympica contest a whopping seven times. He remains a prominent force within the sport and has written many books and articles on it.

In recent years the 72-year-old, who has four other children with his ex-wife Maria Shriver, has become an advocate for eating less meat.

He is an executive producer of the documentary The Game Changes, about the rise of plant-based eating in professional sports.
