At the age of 36, he remains in remarkable physical condition.
Hulk, real name Givanildo Vieira de Sousa, gained his adopted name for his muscular physique, and his powers don’t appear to be waning with age.
In a video shared by SportsCenter Brazil, the forward looked as beefy as ever as he worked out in the gym.
Hulk completed a leg exercise in the clip, grimacing as he lifted weights.
His huge legs bulged as he did so, with the help of intense encouragement from a member of training staff.
Hulk then completed a separate core and balance exercise as he steps up his conditioning.
He returned to his homeland in January last year, 15 years after leaving Brazil for Japanese side Kawasaki Frontale in 2006.
It has so far been a trophy-laden homecoming.
