Actor Chris Hemsworth is well known for his strength and ripped physique befitting a fictional interpretation of the mythological Norse God Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). From time to time, Hemsworth shares workouts demonstrating how he builds his physical conditioning.
On Aug. 16, 2022, Hemsworth posted a “minimal equipment” workout via a video on his Instagram page. During the routine, he pushed through functional bodyweight exercises on the deck of a navy ship that was part of the set for the box office hit Top Gun: Maverick. Check it out below:

According to Hemsworth, this flexible routine requires limited equipment and can be performed pretty much anywhere. The 38-year-old will share similar workouts in the coming weeks to promote his workout app, Centr.
The Australian actor began the ambitious endeavor to share health advice with people who want to improve their general fitness and nutrition. Per his social media, Centr “has everything you need for your fitness journey.”
This minimal equipment workout is another small sample of Hemsworth’s ongoing project in the growing fitness space.

Hemsworth has an eclectic performance background but is most famous for his role as the shredded Thor in the MCU. Many of his roles feature some necessary physical exertion, so he must keep up his training throughout the calendar year.
After the recent release of Thor: Love and Thunder in July 2022, Hemsworth does not have any other films scheduled for the rest of the year. However, according to IMDB, some of his future projects in 2023 and 2024 will probably keep him in shape.
For example, there’s the high-octane action film Extraction 2 and Furiosa — a prequel in the explosive Mad Max series. Both pending assignments likely mean the active Tinseltown performer won’t lapse in his top-notch fitness soon.
