Filmed by his personal trainer Luke Zocchi, Hemsworth was seen putting his Thor-hammering skills to the test — but this time with an axe.

“Use your strength for good use,” Zocchi says in the clip, as Hemsworth begins to slam the axe down.

The Avengers star made several attempts before the block of wood finally split in half.

“If at first you don’t succeed try try try try again and again….😂💪,” he joked in the caption.

Several fans and followers of the Hollywood actor flooded to the comments of the video, joking about comparing his strength to that of his Marvel character.

“Seems like Thor is a bit rusty,” one fan joked, while another suggested he “call Captain America” to help him out.

“Captain America did that with bare hands but thor can’t,” another fan added.

The post comes a day after Hemsworth and his trainer shared a “quick 10 minute low impact bodyweight workout” from their Centr app for fans to try.

The exercises were laid out in a HIIT style and included movements like squats, bicycle sit-ups, mountain climbers and reverse lunges.

“It gets more challenging the second round. So strap in and get ready,” Hemsworth captioned the video.

Over the last year, Hemsworth has packed on more muscle than ever before. The actor is working on his physique for his role as pro wrestler Hulk Hogan in the upcoming biopic.

“There’s an aesthetic that the role requires,” he told The Telegraph of his Thor character. “Bodybuilding is seen as vanity, whereas if I put on a bunch of unhealthy weight, or got unhealthily skinny for a role, I’d probably be called a serious actor.

“The training across 10 years of doing it is a full-time job. That and then a 12-hour shooting day — it’s a real grind. It’s incredibly rewarding, too — you have to look at it like a professional athlete.”
