While the legendary actor’s five children have chosen different career paths, in fields like acting, modeling, writing, and real estate, his youngest son, Joseph Baena, who prefers not to use his father’s last name, is certainly following his father’s footsteps, inhering an almost similar addiction for bodybuilding.

In 2016, Joseph Baena did feature a re-done bar scene from Terminator 2, in Ben Hess’ short clip, Terminator 2 Remake with Joseph Baena: Bad to the Bone, attempting to recreate his dad’s iconic role. But then, the chap ended up garnering a lot of fan hate. That was in 2016, and Baena is more than ready now.

Baena’s rigorous training plan includes a lot of sets and plenty of isolation moves. The young bodybuilder continues to ensure 20 minutes of “fasted cardio” in the morning. Baena says, “One of the big things I learned from Dad was not to have the ten-rep mentality.” It means you gotta push yourself to the limits, and go the extra mile.

Joseph Baena Is Keeping Up With Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Legacy

When one speaks of Arnold Schwarzenegger, it is fair to state that there is only one Conan the Barbarian, and there will always be one! While this remains true for the seven-time Olympia champion, the Predator actor’s youngest son, Joseph Baena, has put on a game face, carrying forward his father’s legacy.

Joseph Baena, who is credited for inhering the best of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s genes, often receives praise from some of the biggest stars from the bodybuilding world, courtesy of his dedication to fitness. The Austrian Oak’s son is known for his intense workout regime, spending hours shaping a perfect physique.

But the real reason behind choosing his father’s footsteps is rather heartbreaking. In a previous podcast, Baena revealed physical fitness became his watchword because he was both unfit and bullied in college. Being the chubby kid, left him unfit for soccer and basketball. But, the son got the never-give-up spirit from his daddy and chose to join the swimming team.

Baena discovered his biological father almost a decade ago. Baena has been vocal about the fact that he doesn’t want to say in his father’s shadow, but at the same time, takes a lot of pride in it. Proud of his Latino heritage, Baena hopes people will respect him for his achievements, looking past his childhood.

Joseph Baena is a real estate agent and has also already appeared on the cover of the Men’s Health March 2022 issue, while his father’s gift from his treasure box, The Encyclopedia of Modern Bodybuilding coauthored by Schwarzenegger, helped him get on the right track.
