A diaper-clad toddler is becoming an online star for ‘working out’ just like Rocky Balboa aka Sylvester Stallone.
A hilarious video shows little Charlie in sync with Balboa, step for step, push-up for push-up, as he trains in Rocky 2.
When Rocky goes down on the ground to do one-armed pushups, young Charlie does the same.
The toddler then goes on to pretend to chop wood while rocky cuts lumber, shadow boxes and skips with an imaginary jump rope.
Even when Rocky falls down from exhaustion during the montage, Charlie also drops to his knees but is quick to jump right back up.
The two-and-a-half-minute video comes to an end with the toddler flashing his smile on camera.
“It brings a smile to our face every time he asks to workout with Rocky,” father Zack Magilavy wrote on his Facebook post with the video. “He takes his workouts very seriously... he’s been training for the last year!!”
But Charlie isn’t allowed to watch the fight scenes yet, as his father wrote in the post, which FYI has over 3.6 million views and about 72K shares, “If you enjoy it as much as we do, please feel free to share it... Please keep the negative comments to yourself. No we do not allow him to watch the fight scenes and yes his TV time is very limited.”
Charlie’s widely-shared training video, with over 2,50,000 YouTube views, even caught Stallone’s attention, who proudly shared the video on social media.
