Chris Hemsworth made his MCU debut in the 2011 film Thor and has been portraying the character for more than a decade. He surely has worked hard to bring the God of Thunder on screen in every way possible. And one of the things that were mostly required to portray the Norse God was having a godly physique. Not only has Hemsworth impressed everyone by maintaining his muscular physique, but he also got more ripped each time he reprised his role.
While things turn out better for the film, working out and getting repped for the roles, takes a toll on actors. And such was the case with the Thor: Love and Thunder star, who went through a brutal training regime to prepare for his role in the fourth installment of the film.

Getting Ripped For Thor 4 Left Chris Hemsworth Exhausted
Chris Hemsworth has definitely worked harder every time he reprised his role as Thor. After donning a fat suit in Endgame, Thor was supposed to get back in shape. And it required Hemsworth to work even harder than before. The Avengers star shared the process of the brutal training during one of the episodes of Marvel’s behind-the-scenes documentary, Assembled.
Talking about his workout routine, Hemsworth said that he has “put the muscle on and out the size on” every time he has played the Marvel character. However, jacking up for Love and Thunder was harder than before.
“This was particularly hard. I think because the target weight we aimed for was quite a ways above where I’d been before,” he shared on Assembled. The Extraction star shared that he spent 12 months “training” and “puppeteering the body” and also included swimming and martial arts in his workout routine.
Although Chris Hemsworth did admit he enjoyed trying something new, it was exhausting for him. Hemsworth said, “It was just exhausting. I don’t know, maybe I’m getting old, but things just started to hurt more.”
The Spiderhead star shared that the training made him bigger than he has ever been. Although he got big and fit for the role, it was even harder to keep it that way while filming Thor 4.
