Nothing is more inspiring for Baena than his father’s chest rituals that catapulted him to be the legendary bodybuilder. Arnie trained his pecs with dumbbell presses and flat bench presses. However, Baena bar dips have a benefit other than increasing upper body strength. They would boost the bench press performance, and now you know what Baena is aiming for! 

Unlike his father, who started his bodybuilding journey at 15, the budding actor had a rough start. As a young boy, Baena was a chubby kid. The love child of Arnie was also bullied by his close friends for not being fit and couldn’t participate in popular sports like basketball and football in school.

Baena confessed to having a phase of struggling with body dysmorphia due to his oversize. Despite the intention to lose weight, nothing helped him to become shredded until Arnold Schwarzenegger intervened. The Austrian Oak gifted Baena the Encyclopedia of Modern Bodybuilding and said, “Do your research, study it.” 

Baena followed his father’s words and read the book page cover to cover. Soon, he saw the change in his mindset and started implementing a healthy lifestyle. The 26-year-old now trains with elite bodybuilders and influencers and is Instagram’s bodybuilding idol. While he was not ready to go Pro in his bodybuilding career, Baena sees his physique as a major asset for his film career.
