Hugh Jackman did some heavy lifting over the weekend in The Wolverine, but he’s not resting on his laurels.

The famously fit X-Men star tweeted a photo of himself at the gym with a challenge to followers: “If the bar ain't bendin, then you're just pretendin.”

Jackman reprises his role as Wolverine in next summer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past, and his tweet inspired an awed response from one of his co-stars.

“holy crap Hugh,” tweeted Shawn Ashmore (Iceman). When a fan remarked that Ashmore must be happy Iceman doesn’t go through such rigorous training, Ashmore responded in the affirmative.

“So glad!! Hugh is a beast,” Ashmore tweeted. “Hardest working guy!”

Fox’s X-Men: Days of Future past hits theaters July 18, 2014.
