Chris Hemsworth is bursting at the seams for Thor 4: someone has to save his stunt double

Let's all take a minute and think of Bobby Holland Hanton. Finished? Good, because in that one minute Hanton probably did 40 pushups. For Thor 4: Love and Thunder, Chris Hemsworth trains harder than ever and Hanton has been the Australian's stunt double since 2013.

Before Thor 4: Chris Hemsworth's stunt double reaches its limits

It reminds me of the jokes about the worst jobs in the world. One of them was always the window cleaner on the Empire State Building. Now, reports Uproxx, the Chris Hemsworth stunt man is sending out the expected cry for help: He can no longer, no longer keep up, no longer go the Hemsworth pace. I feel the bro.

Read these lines and hear the despair that wells out of each letter:

Bobby Holland Hanton, the job dictates, must at least look a bit like Chris Hemsworth when he jumps off a truck for the Thor actor or something. That was already difficult 12 months ago, because the defined thunder dude sets aesthetic ideals and fitness goals that normal mortals can hardly meet.

Over the past year, Hemsworth has taken its muscle game to a whole new level. Hanton has to go through all of this:

For Thor 4 and Hulk Hogan: That's why Chris Hemsworth tests his limits

Why does Hemsworth train so much? On the one hand, the extreme muscle growth has professional reasons. For Thor 4, Hemsworth takes off his fat suit from Avengers: Endgame. He also goes into the bulk phase for the Hulk Hogan biopic, which is a special challenge even for the Australian: Hemsworth is too beautiful for the role.

But there is something else twitching in the Marvel star. An irrepressible inner energy drives him to push the heaviest objects as often as possible from place A to a distant place B, to push, to push like an enthusiastic Sisyphus. Chris Hemsworth can't sit still. After a few rest days, his body, trimmed for power output, rebels, he reveals Mens Health accordingly.

You can watch (and hear) that in this video:

The Marvel star knows no plateaus, as we fitness cracks call normal phases of stagnation in the hunt for measurable progress. When others just let it be, Chris Hemsworth hangs the bar and pull-up bar one step higher. No treat-yourself Tuesday for Chris Hemsworth, so not for stunt buddy Bobby Hanton either.

Muscles for Thor 4: Hemsworth's advances set Hanton's training pace

The images of the training Thor actor are well received in the media. They arouse admiration, for Hanton they just mean more work.

The stunt double and the star synchronized their everyday lives on the way to the projects. You eat the same thing at the same time and train the same amount down. It sounds like an exhausting process. The entire daily routine is subordinate to the training:

Who will get Chris Hemsworth's stunt double out of there?

Hemsworth and Hanton are fitness professionals and they probably know what to do and what to put on their bodies. The next part actually looks a bit more serious and should be a warning for anyone who wants to build muscle at the Chris Hemsworth pace.

Chris Hemsworth doesn't mind. He apparently has an infinite energy silo and a body that knows no (growth) limits. Somehow he is dragging Bobby Hanton with him. The stunt man is still holding out. But he should know: We heard his cry for help.

Thor starts in theaters on May 5, 2022.
