Top 10 Training Montages
Is this the definitive list of training montages? Check out our picks and be sure to let us know your absolute faves!
4. Kickboxer (1989)
Along with Bloodsport (1988) Kickboxer established the “Muscles from Brussels” as one of the biggest action stars of the era. In this unforgettable sequence a supremely ripped Van Damme puts on a display of real life martial arts prowess and flexibility that is at times painful even to watch. The montage would arguably be perfect were it not for the piercing panpipes arrangement blaring in the background.
3. Rocky III (1982)
This time around, in order to outwork Clubber Lang in the ring, Rocky does away with his traditional routine of punching meat and chasing chickens and instead subjects himself to a cardio-intensive regimen of sprints, skipping and swimming. As we mentioned in our list of Top 10 Action Movie Physiques, Stallone prepared for this one by getting into his best shape ever, achieving a bodyfat percentage of just 2.8!
