Moreover, he carries the same charm and gorgeousness that his father had in his earlier days. Alongside, he also shows humility and perseverance. The real estate agent wants to follow in his dad’s footsteps and become an actor. For that, he is grinding away at the gym, but in an 80s style.

A few hours ago, Baena amazed followers with a collaboration video that showed him posing alongside bodybuilders Shizzy Twizzy and Jizzy (as their Instagram names go). The Instagram video is a nod to the 1980s bodybuilding fusion video, where the main character navigates an intense physical transformation. Furthermore, the ‘Bully High’ actor had a gala time with his gym bros, jamming to ‘Scarface’ music, a movie released in 1983. Baena captioned the post, stating, “Here’s the 80s style training montage you needed but not the one you deserved.”

The 1980s were a time when symmetry, proportionality, and aesthetics mattered. Fitness enthusiasts would spend hours in the gym doing basic training like dumbbells, squats, bench presses, and push-downs. The trio of friends also performed similar exercises at the famous Gold’s Gym. Moreover, the fitness icon’s bodybuilding poses in front of the dilapidated blue wall add an old-world charm to the video. His double biceps are ready to set the stage on fire. Many subscribers appreciated Joseph’s drive for perfection. Furthermore, followers showered Baena with words of encouragement. They do not mind the young kid on the block adding his own twist to the Austrian Oak’s iconic characters.
