20 Times Hugh Jackman Proved He’s an Ageless Workout Warrior on Instagram

Even though he’s pushing 50, Hugh Jackman can still throw down with any actor in Hollywood when it comes to working out.

Playing Wolverine for over a decade will keep anyone in shape, and Jackman is the perfect example. When he hits the big screen in Logan in 2017, it’ll (probably) be the last time he portrays the hugely popular X-Men hero.

But if his workouts are any indication, Jackman could continue playing the cigar-chomping hero for another decade or two if he wanted. Whether he’s putting up a big-money deadlift, finishing off a workout with clap pullups, or doing work with some huge dumbbells, Jackman knows how to bulk up. The Australian actor and his trainer detailed for Men’s Fitness some of the training that he did to get into Wolverine shape, but he also enjoys showing it off on social media too.

Jackman is one of the 25 most ripped celebrity dudes to follow on Instagram, just like fellow superhero actors Jason Momoa and September 2016 Men’s Fitness cover star Henry Cavill.
