Joseph Baena has proudly followed in his father's footsteps with his passion for bodybuilding and exercise as a whole.

That passion, and his admiration for his dad, Arnold Schwarzenegger, were both put on display when the 23-year-old took to Instagram on Friday and shared a series of photos. 

One of them showed Baena standing next to a likeness of Schwarzenegger doing one of his famous bodybuilding poses, with the real-life former Mr. Universe and Mr. Olympia champion looking on.

Baena, who a dead-ringer for the Terminator star, was all smiles with his arms crossed dressed in a sporty black and grey ensemble with stylish sunglasses.

The former California governor stood to his son's left, on the other side of his likeness image, as he sat on his bicycle. 

Seemingly out on one of his near-daily bike rides around the Santa Monica-Brentwood region, Schwarzenegger also looked sporty in an all-blue outfit and sunglasses. 

'It's fun going through your camera roll and finding fun pictures and memes you forgot about. Here’s a lil camera dump for ya! Enjoy your weekend everyone:) Baena wrote in the caption of the post that also included pictures of himself and with friends.

Earlier in the day, Baena shared video showing the outdoor gym at the world-famous Gold's Gym near Venice Beach.

'We're back baby, he professed in a likely reference to the restricts amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

After panning around the area full of barbells and weights, he then turned the camera on himself, which revealed him wearing a white protective mask.

Happy to be back: With a love for bodybuilding, Baena also declared; 'We're back baby!!!! along with a few clips of the outdoor gym at Gold's Gym in Venice Beach

He also showed off his humorous side when he announced: 'It's a light day,' when he took a few steps towards two gold barbells that each weigh 330 lbs.

'Didn't want to scare the new guys,' he added in the caption. 

Amazingly, Baena was able to move the barbells, ever so slightly, during his comedic move captured on camera. 

While Baena was posting his father-son photo, the legendary action star was seen out taking a cruise in his classic Mercedes Excalibur in the Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles.

Baena often likes to showoff some of the flexing moves made famous by his dad during his world champion bodybuilder career that began back in the 1960s. 

Many decades later and Schwarzenegger is still considered among the most important figures in the history of bodybuilding.

Baena's mother, Mildred Baena, was the Schwarzenegger family's housekeeper when she had an affair with the legendary action movie star.
