When Zocchi was 17 years old, he discovered boxing and became obsessed with it. He eventually became a personal trainer and began coaching Hemsworth on how to become in shape for film roles. He is a featured health and fitness reviewer on Australian mainstream TV, and his popular online program has helped millions of people lose weight around the world. He’s even worked with Cate Blanchett, another well-known actress in the MCU.

Luke used to work in Australia whereas Chris was away in the United States. However, because they were close friends, they would get together every Christmas to maintain contact. Chris had just done Thor 2 and was attempting to lose weight in preparation for his next part. Thus when the two friends met up in Costa Rica, they started waking up early and going for a run. Luke also did some pad work with Chris as he had a boxing history. Chris got the idea from this, and he asked Luke to be his trainer for the next six weeks. Luke consented and traveled over for the next six weeks. However, eventually, he stayed with him for the remainder of the movie. Following that, the two of them have become inseparable.

He wrote ” Occlusion training. By restricting blood flow and oxygen the muscles are forced to work harder in a shorter period of time and a bunch of other “sports sciency” stuff happens. Basically, it’s one of the most uncomfortable training methods I’ve experienced but part of the puzzle in growing Thor’s arms to look like the legs of a racehorse.”

Thor: Love and Thunder will release on July 8, 2022.
