Train Like Rocky Balboa

Train Like Rocky Balboa

Do you want to train like Rocky Balboa?

For Stallone, the routine involves six days of working out, twice a day, with a diet that features a glass of liquid aminos before breakfast. It’s a dedication that seems to pay off,

“I wanted to look like Tarzan – sleek, tight, almost catlike,” Stallone stated on the subject of his legendary workouts. “I wanted to forget the bulk and go for well-developed muscles. I began a hardcore weight-lifting program, working out twice a day. When I made Rocky, I increased my exercise.”

“I worked out a program that was right for him and then I led the way, constantly increasing weights and reps,” Columbu explains. “I knew for sure that this would motivate him to try and keep up with me. If I took a weight and did 12 reps, Sly would have to try and do at least seven. Then, next set, I would do 15 reps, so he would have to increase his reps to at least 10. By the end of our training he was doing curls with 70 lb dumbbells.”
