Wowza! It looks like Patrick Schwarzenegger is taking after his bodybuilder Dad!

On Friday, the 19-year-old son of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver posted a shirtless pic of his rock-hard body on Twitter with the caption, "Early morning pump! Who is getting into shape for summer??!! Gonna gain 7 pounds this summer."

In the picture, the USC sophomore is flexing his guns, showing off his washboard abs, and gritting his teeth just like the Incredible Hulk.

We're sure the college cutie's nearly 80,000 Twitter followers enjoyed getting an eyeful of his ripped body.

According to Patrick, he maintains his impressive physique by fueling his body with a diet of Pepperidge FarmGoldfish, Oreo cookies, Pop-Tarts, and other sugary snacks. Last month he tweeted a snapshot of the inside of his pantry, saying, "If your wondering what foods I eat to maintain 6 pack and what foods are in my pantry, here you are pic.twitter.com/YCfMrpT0a3."

In addition to working out, Patrick has been busy with his budding film career. After his turn in "Grown Ups 2" alongside fellow hottie Taylor Lautner, which hits theaters in July, Patrick scored a role in the Kevin Connolly-directed flick, "Dear Eleanor." The rising star just finished shooting the film in Denver, Colorado, opposite Hollywood heavyweights Jessica Alba and Luke Wilson.

Whether Patrick added the extra muscle for his new role or just wanted to look buff for summer, we'll never know. But one thing is for sure: We bet Arnie is one proud papa!

Arnold was 20, only one year older than his son now, when he won the coveted Mr. Universe title at 20. The Austrian-born bodybuilder went on to win the Mr. Olympia contest seven times and score roles in action flicks like "The Terminator" and "Conan the Barbarian." While Patrick still has a way to go before he'll be buff enough to rock a pair of teeny-tiny briefs like his pops did, he's well on his way.

Maybe next up, Arnie's kiddo will put his muscles to work and tackle an action flick. Like father, like son, right?
