Earlier, the 25-year-old real estate agent posted an Instagram story showcasing a vivid image of himself doing dumbbell presses with the 100-pound weight. The slow pace of his intense exercise matches the acoustic rhythm of the song playing in the background. Baena wrote in his post, “This song has been stuck in my head all week.” The grunge sounds are none other than those of the trending “Youngest Daughter” by Superheaven. Moreover, the fitness enthusiast shows remarkable determination and ease at pulling up the weights.

The song, ” Youngest Daughter,” released in 2013, gained traction in the last few months, making it one of the most streamed on Spotify. The virality of the rock band can be attributed to TikTok’s ability to catapult decades-old music into fame. Moreover, the song’s deep lyrics also add to its charm. The sounds and Baena’s dumbbell set make an artistic unison of creativity featuring both vulnerability and strength, feelings that Baena is not unaware of.
