ROCKY TRAINING MONTAGE


Here is another Derrick confession.  I am a huge Stallone fan. I've seen every Rocky and Rambo multiple times.  The Expendables franchise are some of the greatest action movies of the last decade.  I'll watch the first couple of Rocky's every time I need to get motivated to work out more.  Even if you haven't seen Rocky or Rocky II you are probably familiar with the "Rocky Training Montage,"  You know... where Rocky is in grey sweats jogging through all of Philadelphia. 

If you have been living under a rock or something and haven't seen it here it is:



Doesn't that motivate the HECK out of ya? I'm sitting in my office right now and it's raining outside and I STILL want to go running and punch the air continuously.  Until somebody at Philadelphia Magazine actually calculated just how far Rocky runs in that montage.  If ran through each of those landmarks in the order shown Rocky would have ran over 30 mile's! That's a 50k!


Here is a map of that route:


No wonder Rocky is a champion.. he is an endurance beast.  Check out the blog in the Philly Post for the full breakdown of that montage and just how insane it is: http://blogs.phillymag.com/the_philly_post/2013/09/18/rocky-training-run-rocky-ii/
