We’ve all watched it numerous times. The “Rocky” film series is one of the most astonishing and inspiring boxing movies ever made.
Sylvester Stallone plays the main character Rocky – Philadelphia native that literally starts from the bottom and ends at the top of the mountain.
In Rocky IV the former world champion faces a boxing machine that comes from the Soviet Union – Ivan Drago (Dolph Lundgren).
The pair finally squares off in Moscow on Christmas Day, as both fighters are approaching the bout in totally different ways. Rocky is shown training in a remote cabin in Siberia with the help of Apollo Creed’s old trainer Duke, his brother-in-law Paulie, and eventually Adrian, doing exercises such as chopping wood, lifting rocks, running in the snow and climbing a mountain, while Drago is seen in an advanced training facility running on treadmills, utilizing weightlifting machines and having a huge team assembled behind him.
In the video, we can see a lot of real exercises that require a lot of strength, stamina, and power in order to do right.
