Superstar actor Vin Diesel has built himself quite the career in Hollywood.

He’s also built some of the biggest muscles.

Diesel will get the chance to show those off in 2017 with two of the biggest releases of his career—xXx: The Return of Xander Cage and the ultra-anticipated next installment of the Fast & Furious series, Fast 8.

Diesel has been preparing hard for both films, showing off stunts, gym workouts, and teases from the productions, including of him filming the absurd dirtbike-on-water scene in the new xXx sequel. At nearly 50 years old—hard to believe based on his physique, but it's true—the actor has amassed a huge following on social media over the years, which has helped make him one of the biggest movie stars in the world.

And while the April 2015 Men’s Fitness cover star told us how he builds his delts, biceps, and triceps—which you can try, too—he’s also shown off some of those moves on social media, as well. Diesel's Furious 7 co-star Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson likes crushing his workouts on Instagram—as do these other jacked celebrity dudes—but Diesel does it with his own signature style.

Here are 10 times that Diesel went all-out in his workouts on Instagram:
