The training montage, a staple of the Rocky franchise, will send any athlete with a pulse into the weight room after one viewing. So it comes as no surprise that our STACKletes on Twitter and Facebook picked it as the most motivational scene in a sports film.

In Rocky IV, Rocky isolates himself high in the snowy mountains of Russia, training with a mix of traditional bodyweight exercises and unorthodox drills, some of which are more suitable for a lumberjack than a boxer. His high altitude training pays off, eventually helping him bloody Ivan Drago and send him to the canvas.
