Joseph Baena explains a full-body endurance exercise

Baena was keen to share this new training crease.

Joseph Baena is aware of the importance of the fitness icon he is often compared to. As the son of the legendary Arnold Schwarzenegger, some would say that strength and training run in the family. Some might even expect him to resume the old “family business”. At the very least, Baena seems to be trying to honor his lineage at every opportunity. A recently shared new workout is just one example.

The weekend of May 19-21, 2023 Baena posted a full-body cardio workout. In a now-deleted Instagram post, he presented it to his followers as a worthy challenge while continuing to polish his own fitness.

In the caption of his deleted post, Baena explains that this endurance-based routine is all about “switching up” your workout every now and then. This can take the form of a new individual movement, the implementation of drop sets, or even forays into other sports outside of strength training. When it comes to finding ways to challenge yourself and keep pushing it with the best possible and most versatile means, Baena seems keen to pull out all the stops.

Here’s an overview of the endurance Baena performed, with six supersets that combine an endurance-focused exercise with a more traditional muscle-building exercise:

In a February 2022 interview with Men’s Health, Baena expressed that he wanted to figure out his fitness path himself. While he had the luxury of leaning on a Mr. Olympia legend like Schwarzenegger, Baena was interested in starting his own gym career.

Today, if you can get a clue from this interview, Baena usually exercises six days a week, two hours a session, and occasionally does morning cardio when he can.

Over time he found success and a good groove.

“I went straight to the book. I wanted to find out for myself…I was able to get a bodybuilding mentality so I could sculpt my body the way I wanted to.”

Perhaps the decision to go it alone will propel Baena to further fame, in the gym and elsewhere. It’s obvious that this thought process was about breaking out of his father’s shadow. With Baena already having a significant fitness impact and reputedly leading quality workouts on paper, it looks like Baena is living up to his individual aspirations.
