He added multiple Christmas tree emojis, calling attention to a Christmas tree likeness on the development of one’s lower back.
‘Having strong and well-developed lower-back muscles – which are composed primarily of the erector spinae muscles – not only creates that impressive “Christmas tree” that some bodybuilders wow judges with,’ according to a Muscle & Fitness article on the topic.
As Joe took care of his back, his dad was active on social media, ripping Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan after the prominent Republican questioned how the founding fathers of America would feel about ongoing lockdowns to combat the coronavirus pandemic amid rising numbers.
Jordan wrote, ’60 million Americans are subject to a stay at home order or curfew. 11 million are right here in Ohio. What would the Founders say?’

Schwarzenegger, who served as the Governor of California from 2003 until 2011, responded, ‘I’m not a historian, and it looks like they’ve all already corrected you, but I’m wildly guessing that the Founders would tell you to delete your account.’
Schwarzenegger, who won as a Republican, also linked to a tweet and story about how President George Washington ordered quarantines amid a smallpox epidemic that happened while American Revolution was happening.’
Baena is Schwarzenegger’s son with his one-time housekeeper-turned-mistress Mildred Baena. In October, the Kindergarten Cop star took to social media praising Joseph for his dedication to fitness.
‘Happy birthday @projoe2! I love watching your progress with your training, your work, and in every part of your life,’ he wrote. ‘I can’t wait to see what’s coming next. I love you!’
