The turn of the year always sees people undertake new fitness regimes and diets.
Come on, admit it, how many of you are currently watching what you eat, or have joined a gym, in the hope by summertime you’ll be strutting about, feeling like a million dollars?
Well it’s not just us mere mortals who take on this mindset, numerous celebrities, including the likes of Chris Pratt and Chris Hemsworth are also getting into shape.
Hemsworth, who you might recognise better as Marvel’s very own Thor, recently took to Twitter to show his adoring fans – all 4.57m of them – how he’s getting into shape for 2019.
In the video, the Avengers star can be seen exercising on all fours across a basketball court, and I’ve got to admit – it looks pretty intense.
He captioned the inspiring video:
Trying to lock in on my workout spirit animal for 2019

Meanwhile, over on Instagram, Hemsworth posted the same video, and some of the comments were hilarious.
One comment – and perhaps my favourite – read:
It looked easy. I tried it. I almost died.
While another mused:
Uh…..based solely on this video my work out spirit animal is a panda…..
I completely relate to that one. Perhaps not even a panda though, just a giant sloth.
I realise I could be getting carried away with myself, but is Hemsworth getting into such great shape because he’s coming back as Thor, not only for Avengers: Endgame, but possibly another movie about everyone’s favourite Norse god?
Posting a video on Instagram in May last year, Hemsworth thanked fans for their continued support with everything MCU-related.
There was one sentence in particular which got fans – and myself – convinced there’ll be another Thor standalone film.
In the video, Hemsworth says:
It was the biggest superhero film opening ever. The film continues to smash records left right and center and, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again — it’s all thanks to you guys.
Thank you so much, everyone who continues to support these characters and the Marvel Universe.
We’re going to keep trying to crank them out for you, if you let us.
What’s that Chris? You’re going to keep cranking them out? Hmmmmmm. Obviously means there’s more coming, doesn’t it?
Whether he comes back for another Thor film, or not, I’m too excited to be worrying about that when we’ve got the next Avengers film to look forward to!
I literally cannot contain myself for the next instalment!
