11 Times Dolph Lundgren Broke Instagram With His Knockout Workouts


He might be heading past 60, but Dolph Lundgren is still as jacked as ever.

Whether he’s starring alongside old pals like Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger in the Expendables series or playing a villain on the hit TV show Arrow, Lundgren is showing no signs of slowing down.

Three decades after he became world famous for his role as Ivan Drago in Rocky IV, the Swedish martial artist/actor still looks like he could “break” anyone who steps up to fight him.

And while legendary actor has plenty of brawn, he brings the brains too—Lundgren reportedly has an IQ of 160 and previously studied chemical engineering in college. Lundgren loves to show off his workouts and “old man strength” on social media, much like other jacked dudes like Terry Crews, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Statham, and Men’s Fitness cover star Vin Diesel.

Here are 11 times Lundgren felt he “must break” Instagram with his workouts:
