Joseph Baena looks like his dad Arnold Schwarzenegger as he flexes his muscles on a road trip

He shares his famous father’s love of bodybuilding.

And Joseph Baena looked just like his dad Arnold Schwarzenegger when he stopped during a road trip on Sunday to show off his impressive muscles.

The 23-year-old was joined by some of his friends in the enormous Badwater salt basin as they made a stop on their road trip through Death Valley National Park. 

Lookalikes: Joseph Baena, 23, looked just like his father Arnold Schwarzenegger in a video posted Sunday to his Insta Stories from a road trip he took with friends to Death Valley National Park

Joseph was dressed casually in a black T-shirt that showed off his bulging biceps, along with slim black jeans and gray suede shoes.

He stood in the salt flat with the craggy mountains rising up dramatically behind him. 

The bodybuilder was having some fun and flexed his arm in a way that made him look even more like his father.

Picture perfect: Joseph had his arm flexed in a way that made him look like his dad at the height of his bodybuilding career in the 1970s; seen in 1977 at the Cannes Film Festival

Having a laugh: But Joseph revealed that he wasn't just flexing, but was parodying the pose made by the Turkish chef Nusret Gökçe, better known in English-speaking regions as Salt Bae

But Joseph revealed that he wasn’t just flexing, but was parodying the pose made by the Turkish chef Nusret Gökçe, better known in English-speaking regions as Salt Bae.

The chef and butcher became famous after a video of him salting meat went viral due to his odd posturing, which involved sprinkling salt onto his bent arm before it fell onto the food.

He also developed an oddly sensual manner of cutting and tenderizing meats that became fodder for parody.

Joseph had picked up some of the salt from the ground and sprinkled it into the wind, before sticking out his tongue to try to catch some of it.

A friend off camera gave him a surprise by throwing a snowball-size chunk of salt at him.

In January, Joseph showed off his thick arms in an Instagram post featuring Arnold in front of a mural of the actor from her bodybuilding days. 

Although Joseph usually doesn’t socialize with Schwarzenegger’s other children from his marriage to Maria Shriver, he regularly spends time with his father, both in and out of the gym.

He’ll soon be following in his dad’s footsteps with his first acting role in the science fiction–comedy The Chariot.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film ‘tells the story of a corporation that oversees the process of reincarnation, and a young man who becomes a glitch in this system when he encounters a woman he loved in a previous life.’ 

‘I’m following my father’s footsteps because I’m doing my own thing,’ Joseph told DailyMailTV in an exclusive interview.

‘I’m pursuing acting because I want to pursue acting. So really the pressure is just from myself,’ he explained. 

The upcoming film has an impressive cast, including John Malkovich, Thomas Mann and Alita: Battle Angel’s Rosa Salazar.
