Sylvester Stallone praises ‘Rocky’ toddler’s viral workout


A video of a toddler mimicking Sylvester Stallone’s moves while watching a clip of the training montage in “Rocky II” has earned kudos from the actor himself.

The video posted to Facebook by an Ohio dad shows the diaper-clad boy doing one-armed pushups and pretending to work a speed bag, chop wood and lift weights in sync with the big screen boxer.

The video has received millions of views online. Stallone reposted it to Instagram on Wednesday with a note saying “this kid makes me so proud.” He jokes that he may have to fight the boy in “Rocky 10.”

Stallone earned a Golden Globe earlier this year for reprising his most famous role as Rocky Balboa in last year’s “Creed.”
