Chris Hemsworth has the body of a god, literally and figuratively.

For more than a decade, Hemsworth has starred in the MCU as the god of thunder, Thor.

However, Hemsworth has been known to switch things up depending on what the role demands of him.

Case in point, Hemsworth's new training regimen for the Extraction sequel.

As Hemsworth prepares his body to do the sequel to Extraction, the actor explains that he's tried to limit his heavy weight lifting.

Instead, he's put his efforts into doing more "bodyweight functional movements, concentrating on agility, strength, and speed."

He even went online to post what he did and encouraged his fans to give his workout a try.

Although we'd have to warn you, it's not necessarily for the faint of heart.

So far, the Instagram video has amassed thirteen million mission views (and counting).

Extraction followed Tyler Rake's quest to rescue the kidnapped son of an Indian crime lord in Bangladesh.

The 2020 film received both praise and criticism.

Critics, in particular, could not help but sing praises about the performance and action sequences. 

However, detractors took issue with the film's excessive violence and portrayal of Bangladesh.

Despite the backlash, the film went on to become the most-watched film in Netflix's history.

An estimated 99 million households watched Extraction in its first four weeks of airing.

The filming for Extraction's sequel was scheduled to begin in September 2021, in Sydney, Australia.

Because of its strict measures against the COVID-19 pandemic, production had to find somewhere else.

As for Hemsworth, he has a busy schedule ahead of him as he prepares to shoot multiple movies back-to-back.

Hemsworth will head back to Australia later this year to start preproduction on Mad Max: The Wasteland.

Meanwhile, Hemsworth's next MCU outing, Thor: Love and Thunder, is in post-production ahead of the film's May 2022 premiere.

Finally, Hemsworth is also expected to star in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, which will, once again, be directed by James Gunn.
