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 mat.
