Chris Hemsworth has shared his “ultimate family workout” that can help parents stay in superhero shape while their kids have a blast. The 37-year-old demigod posted videos on his Instagram of the workout, and while it seems pretty doable, there is one slight catch: you’re going to need a horse to make it happen.
“My wife and I designed the ultimate family workout. All you need is a child, a skateboard, a horse and a Can Do attitude. Good luck,” Hemsworth wrote for the caption.
The first video shows the father of three and his daughter India traversing through their backyard skatepark, with Hemsworth running alongside his daughter while she rides over the series of mini hills. Easy way to get some cardio in while your kid gets to shred the gnar.
The next video is where things might get a bit tricky, as Hemsworth’s wife Elsa Pataky is shown running alongside one of their twin sons riding either a baby horse or a pony. Once again, an effective and unquestionably cool way to burn some calories but may prove difficult to replicate unless you have a horse lying around.
If you are determined to complete Hemsworth’s “ultimate family workout,” you could buy a horse but that is going to cost you a nice little chunk of change, as horses will typically cost a few thousand dollars. Not to mention the amount of money it costs for maintaining a horse, including a stable, food, and, of course, a lot of land for the horse to run around.
But even if a horse is slightly outside your budget, you can always do your own version of the “ultimate family workout” by running alongside your kid as they skateboard or ride a bike or whatever sort of wheeled vehicle they prefer. Keep at it and you could be in Avenger-level shape in no time.
