Elba gets tips from his trainers in the clip posted on Instagram, working up a sweat as he does a challenging-looking arm and ab workout that involves pushups and a barbell to get in shape for his new film. “Training for my next Film. Bastille Day. Grinding,” the British star captioned the below video. (Warning: You might have to splash some cold water on your face after watching the clip.)

And with a bod like that, Elba is also in great “Bond … James Bond” shape if he were tapped to play the iconic role. Back in September, the actor revealed he was interested in taking on the part of the iconic spy after being asked about the casting rumor during a Reddit Q&A.

“If it was offered to me, absolutely,” he shared.

What do you think of the actor’s gym video? Do you want him to play the next Bond? Share your thoughts below.
