Joseph Baena, son of legendary bodybuilder Arnold Schwarzenegger, has followed in the footsteps of his father when it comes to fitness. In a recent post made on Instagram, Baena worked on his posing routine under the guidance of bodybuilding veterans Mike O’Hearn and Robby Robinson.
Baena first made headlines in the fitness industry because of his uncanny resemblance to his father. In the past, Baena has recreated some iconic bodybuilding poses of his dad, and it left fans stunned at how similar he looked to Schwarzenegger when he was younger. Joseph’s passion for fitness developed organically, and Schwarzenegger never pushed him towards a career in bodybuilding. However, Joseph naturally had an inclination for lifting weight.
Joseph recently opened up about the pressures of being the son of a mega star like Arnold. He explained that he “constantly pushed himself to live up to that expectation.” Although he struggled with comparisons to his father, Baena has now figured out his own path.
As of late, Baena recently shared a full shoulder workout that he used to get ready for his debut in the season 31 premiere of the hit TV series, Dancing With The Stars. He is also exploring a future in real estate after selling his first home as a real estate agent.
O’Hearn has formed a good bond with Baena and frequently gets a workout in with him. As the more experienced of the two, O’Hearn provides valuable mentorship for Baena with his longevity-inspired old-school workout techniques. Last month, he guided Baena through a grueling back workout that was designed to keep him lifting in his later years.
Robby Robinson is a veteran bodybuilder in his own right. He enjoyed a successful career and holds the distinction of having won both the Mr. Universe title as well as the Mr. America. Robby was also the inaugural champion of the Night of the Champions contest held in 1979.

Robinson helps Baena hit a more effective pose by telling him to press his feet into the floor.
It was not the first time Joseph Baena had partnered with O’Hearn. The two regularly collaborate and share their workouts with their massive following (387k for Baena and 2 million for O’Hearn on Instagram).
O’Hearn also teamed up with Robinson in June for an ‘old school’ style biceps training session. Both Mr. Universe champions offered their advice for building gigantic arms and shared some key points about form while performing the exercises. While Joseph Baena hasn’t expressed the desire to compete imminently, many believe he would make for an impressive bodybuilder.
