Arnold Schwarzenegger's son Joseph Baena is shaping up to be following in his famous dad's footsteps in the gym department: the 21-year-old actor and athlete just shared another photo of his fitness progress to Instagram, showing off his chest day "GAINZ".

Baena often works out with his dad, who in addition to being an action movie legend, famously won the Mr. Olympia bodybuilding title seven times, so he knows his way around a barbell. Baena calls Schwarzenegger the "best training partner in the world", and paid tribute to him earlier this year when he perfectly recreated one of Schwarzenegger's most iconic poses.

Baena has now recently taken to documenting his workouts on Instagram so that his followers can see exactly what he's learned from having the Terminator as his gym buddy.

It looks like dad taught him well.

A powerful pair of pecs doesn't just add undeniable bulk to your upper body, it also makes your waist look visibly slimmer by comparison. And working out your chest can have benefits to other body areas too: for instance, bench presses attack your shoulders as well as your chest.

Here are 12 of the best chest training exercises, including the cable fly and plyometric pushup. To add dimension to your training, Men's Health fitness director Ebenezer Samuel C.S.C.S. recommends finishing off your chest day with this ground pounding upper body workout. And if you're looking for chest gains worthy of a bodybuilding dynasty, this four week program will blast your pecs.
