Chris Hemsworth, again proving himself to be the best at Instagram, has uploaded a look at a day in his life to IGTV. Aside from the fact that I still don’t quite understand what IGTV is, it’s a great watch at what the God of Thunder’s life in Byron Bay is like. Hint: it involves a lot of sweat.
He starts his day with a beach workout with his mates, because if anyone can fulfil Australian stereotypes in a wholesome fashion, it’s a Hemsworth brother.
Chris shows us his Instagram feed, reminding us that this is indeed a video for Instagram’s account, and we see that it’s 95% surfing content. Again with the stereotypes. Note to all visitors: not all Australians are this Australian.
He follows this up with a visit to the gym, which includes a boxing session where his trainer lets him win, because of course he does. Would you want to punch Thor?
After that, it’s yet another bout of exercising. Kickboxing, weightlifting, playing with a skipping rope and ab work make up his third workout of the day. I’m exhausted just watching this.
According to Chris, the main thing about fitness is making sure you’re shiny all the time. You can achieve this by doing hundreds of pushups, or pouring water all over yourself. He helpfully demonstrates by doing just that.
Chris, I can promise you that I am already shiny all the time. It’s called living in Australia in summer.
If all that exercising wasn’t enough, he then… smashes a tyre with a hammer? Is that how Thor works out back on Asgard?
I hope he’s done working out now. I’m not sure how much exercise the human body can take in one morning.
After getting food, he returns to the beach to do… handstands and flips with his friends? Of course all of his friends are just as fit as him.
He winds down with a BBQ on the beach, which I have to assume was planned for this video and isn’t something he actually does regularly. Nobody’s life is that picturesque, I refuse to believe it.
And that’s a day in Chris Hemsworth’s life in Byron Bay. This 5-minute video was a better ad for Byron than literally anything else I’ve ever seen, but I’d only go if Chris would promise to smash tyres with me.
