Joseph Baena looks like Arnold Schwarzenegger reborn.
Joseph Baena is the spitting image of Arnold Schwarzenegger on set of the film Lava. Baena showed off a jacked and impressive physique on set of the new film, looking much like he father did during his heyday.
Children of athletes can have a rough go of it if they choose to follow in their parent’s footsteps. Doing so means risking constant comparisons to “the original” and often times will leave no room for nuance. So people will be ruthless with their comparisons, never giving the next generation a chance to do their own thing, make their own path before being labeled a failed duplicate of their parent. On the other hand many could give too much praise to a popular athlete’s progeny. Rather than offer constructive feedback, nothing but fierce praise is heaped upon the child. Many times that praise can be unwarranted.
Luckily Joseph Baena falls into none of those categories.
The son of the legendary Arnold Schwarzenegger has been carving out his own path. While he may have chosen to pursue bodybuilding and has even had some roles in films, Joseph Baena is clearly his own man. He has the genetics, the work ethic, and incredible presence that his father has. Yet Baena is still walking his own path separate from his father.
Despite being his own man and carving out his own unique legacy, it can’t be denied that Joseph Baena is the spitting image of Arnold Schwarzenegger in his youth. Baena has inherited all his father’s genetic gifts and has carved out an impressive physique of his own in the gym. Countless hours of training has brought him to where he is today. He didn’t just roll out of bed looking jacked, he had to earn every last bit of it.
Like his father before him Joseph Baena is dipping his toes into the realm of film. A recent post to his Instagram page showed Baena on set of the film Lava. In the photo Baena looks like a chip off the old block, giving vibes of Arnold Schwarzenegger in Predator.
Excited to be filming the movie “Lava” with the @bitflixnfts team!

There’s no telling how far Joseph Baena will go in his acting and bodybuilding career. He certainly has ton of potential and could easily find himself doing well in either field if he so chooses. If those two paths aren’t what he’s looking for, Baena also has a budding real estate agent career that could prove fruitful.
