Sylvester Stallone became a fitness inspiration early in his career playing studs like Rocky Balboa and John Rambo, and he’s one of the few big-screen heroes who’s maintained his movie-ready musculature throughout the years. Even at 72, he still crushes it in the gym, and he has the physique of a man half his age.



The action-movie veteran is currently gearing up to star in Rambo 5, and he took to Instagram on Monday to share some workouts he’s been doing with celebrity trainer Gunnar Peterson (@gunnarfitness).

“All l these celebrities talk about how HARD they work out and how early they have to get up and how they have to sacrifice,” Stallone wrote on a previous post. “C’mon, ladies and gents, YO, It’s an INCREDIBLE Privilege!!!! . THUMP THE PUMP !!!”

Stallone’s training is clearly no joke, and with projects like Rambo 5 and The Expendables 4 lined up, it’s unlikely he’ll slow down any time soon.
