Continuing down the muscle-bound path of his bodybuilding legend father, Joseph Baena is back in the gym and “pumping iron”.

The son of Arnold Schwarzenegger posted a new clip of his latest workout to his Instagram page, sporting a black face mask and biceps that are likely making his dad beam with pride.

The apple clearly hasn't fallen far from the, erm, Austrian Oak.

Baena, 23, is the son Schwarzenegger had with his former live-in housekeeper Mildred Baena. The revelation of the affair spelled the end of the former California governor's marriage to Maria Shriver.

Schwarzenegger and Shriver split in 2011, after news of the affair emerged.

Schwarzenegger and Baena have a close relationship and are often seen out cycling together, not to mention their past trips to Oktoberfest in Munich.

The workout footage comes after Schwarzenegger delivered another excoriating rebuke of Donald Trump, following the riots in Washington lead by the president's supporters last week.

He compared the devastation caused to the Capitol building, which was broken into and ransacked, to the actions of the Nazis on Kristallnacht, in 1938.

“Wednesday was the Night of Broken Glass right here in the United States... the broken glass was in the windows of the United States Capitol,” he said, while brandishing a sword from Conan The Barbarian.

“But the mob did not just shatter the windows of the Capitol, they shattered the ideas we took for granted. They trampled the very principles on which our country was founded.

“President Trump sought to overturn the results of the election – and of a fair election, and that he sought a coup by misleading people with lies. To those who think they can overturn the United States Constitution, know this: You will never win.”

The Democrat-led house in the US is now poised to impeach Trump for a second time, for “incitement of insurrection”.
