Chris Hemsworth has been training harder than he ever has in his career over the last year and a half, upping the intensity of his workouts in order to add even more strength and size to his physique ahead of filming Marvel sequel Thor: Love and Thunder, as well as the Hulk Hogan biopic, which will see the Australian actor play the iconic wrestler.

Hemsworth has been far from shy when it comes to sharing his progress in the gym with fans, from the tire flip photo that showed off his bulging biceps and ended up going viral, to core-torching sled training videos. In a more recent clip acquired by Access, Hemsworth demonstrates just how much power he's packing in his jacked arms, taking on a classic arcade strength testing game.

In the video, Hemsworth hits the punching bag so hard it nearly breaks off and goes flying, leaving him with a "score" of 8,792. He then followed it up with a roundhouse kick, before his stunt double and regular workout buddy Bobby Holland Hanton stepped up and beat his score with a right hook worth 9,112 points.

It's not surprising that Hanton has got just as much thunder in his biceps as Hemsworth; he has been bulking up alongside the actor and mirroring his training and diet in anticipation for filming. In fact, he joked recently that Hemsworth's latest gains have become something of an annoyance, as it means he is constantly having to put on size and he's actually gotten bored of eating.
