Movie star Hugh Jackman is no longer having to stay in superhero shape for work, having bowed out of the X-Men universe and played Wolverine for the last time in 2017's Logan — but he's still in great shape. The actor, 51, has spoken before about how, after years of playing the famously buff mutant, he has since leaned down through a combination of fat-burning cardio and strength training.

And in a recent video on Instagram, he showed off how he's been keeping on top of his training during lockdown when he dropped to the ground and performed 25 consecutive pushup reps for charity.

Usually these viral videos involve a celebrity nominating one or more of their famous friends to take part, like the handstand challenge, which started in April this year with Spider-Man actor Tom Holland daring Ryan Reynolds and Jake Gyllenhaal to recreate his feat of putting on a T-shirt while holding a handstand, leading to epic escalations from star athletes like Lolo Jones and Simone Biles.
