Dave Bautista is one out-of-this-world shredded dude. The Guardians of the Galaxy actor and former Muscle & Fitness cover star has successfully made the transition from WWE to Hollywood—sound like someone we know? Cough, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, cough—and he’s not looking back.
Bautista has shown some real talent on screen while playing both heroes and villains—his Spectre baddie was one of our 25 most physically dominating movie bad guys of all time—but his role as Drax in Guardians has really put him in the spotlight. Bautista showed off his comedy skills as the alien warrior who takes all things seriously—even sarcasm—and he’s made a perfect foil for former Men’s Fitness cover star Chris Pratt, who plays team leader Peter Quill a.k.a. Star-Lord.
But no matter what Bautista does on-screen it won’t take away this fact: He’s as jacked as anyone in Hollywood and enjoys showing it off on social media.
Here are Bautista’s most shredded moments from Instagram:

Working on my southpaw stance today at Unbreakable Performance with my homie @jayglazer and I literally felt like I had to left feet…and neither one of them knew what the hell they were doing. 😄 but my favorite tging about this is that legendary @erniereyesjr is training in the background. Long time fan of my fellow Pinoy brother #pinoypride

Yes I’m aware that I’m a goof but this is for a great,fun cause. So on that note I really appreciate my boy @prattprattpratt tagging me in and making me a part of Michael Strahan and Jay Glazer’s Unbreakable challenge for our vets of MVP Merging Vets & Players. And I’d like to invite my friends @titusoneilwwe @natbynature And the one and only legend himself @officialslystallone To join in on the fun. – “For every 25 push-ups completed MSX will donate one piece of product to MVP” @mergingvetsandplayers @unbreakableperformance @mergingvetsandplayers @mbymichaelstrahan @jayglazer #UNBREAKABLExMSX #dreamchaser #onelife ✌🏼
