The hardest workout Chris Hemsworth ever did while working on the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Thor: Love & Thunder.

Hemsworth made his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in 2011’s Thor as the crown prince of Asgard who is stripped of his divine power by his father, Odin. 

He has appeared in eight movies, not counting the upcoming Thor: Love and Thunder, which will be his fourth solo outing. 

In Love and Thunder, Thor faces a struggle unlike any other, therefore Hemsworth had to dress the part.

The actor described his “brutal” training routine for the movie, which included swimming and martial arts in addition to conventional strength training, in an interview with Disney.

Hemsworth claims that Love and Thunder made him probably the biggest and fittest actor he has ever been.

For Love and Thunder, Hemsworth followed a similar training schedule to that of Thor.  

Thor experiences depression and loses his renowned body after Asgard is destroyed in Ragnarok and Thanos snaps his fingers in Avengers: Infinity War.  

The Australian star was questioned about if he was allowed to take a break from practising for the Netflix role.

That wasn’t the case, according to Hemsworth. He was filming Love and Thunder at the time.
