80’s Action Hero Bodies / Workouts Ranked (WHOSE IS BEST?)

If you could choose one action hero workout partner, who would it be? In this video, I am going to rank the individuals that I’ve always wanted to train with based on the criteria of motivation, physique goals, training style, and their x-factor.

So who did I pick for my top 6? Well these legends I want to train with are Jean Claude Van Damme, Dolph Lundgren, Carl Weathers, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Chuck Norris, and Sylvester Stallone. These Hollywood legends set the stage for their physique and training that inspired me to begin training myself.

While the order of appearance does not reflect the ranking of each individual, I gave each one a score that shows which one I would most like to train with (even though I would love to train with every single one of them!)

First up in the list of legendary action heroes that I would want to train with is Van Damme. He was not as motivating to me because I think he might be TOO nice. With that in mind, I give his motivation factor an 8/10. His physique was something I always wanted to achieve myself – lean and muscular. Being my aspiration, I gave him a 10/10 for physique goals. As I mentioned before, his training was very athletic while incorporating an eye on aesthetics, thus Van Damme’s workout an 9/10 in this category. When it came to his x-factor he earns a 7 with an overall score of 34.

Dolph Lundgren has always motivated the hell out of me, inspiring me to train hard and put in the effort to achieve my dream body. This motivation score is granted a 9. While his muscular development was nothing short of amazing, it wasn’t 100% the physique that I dreamed of having, however I still wanted to resemble him somewhat. Here he earns an 8.5. Dolph Lundgren’s workout was almost exclusively athletic until starring in Rocky IV and moved to light weight and high reps. In this category, he earns a 7. That x-factor and what it meant to me earned him an 8 with an overall score of 32.5.

The next action hero that I would love to workout with is Carl Weathers. In the motivation category, he was nothing short of amazing to me. I know that getting a training session in with him would push me to new limits – here he earns a resounding 10. With great muscular development and leanness, something I aspired to have too, I give him a 9.5. Carl Weathers’ workouts, while impressive, were not exactly my favorite. There are a few things I would change, so I give him 7.5. The x-factor he brings to the table got ranked an 8 with a final score of 35.

How could any action hero list exist without the inclusion of Arnold Schwarzenegger? Knowing that training with him would push me past what I wouldn’t want to do he earns a 10/10. His physique was something that almost everyone in the 80s and 90s wanted, including some of my aspirations myself. Here, he earns an 8.5. Schwarzenegger’s workout, with his Golden Six, was an inspiration for some of my own training as well as some of the training programs I’ve written these days. Here, Arnold earns a 9. His x-factor, bringing that little bit extra to the table makes him one of the most ideal training parters around, giving him a 10 and an overall score of 37.5.

Number 5 on this list is the legendary Chuck Norris. In my opinion, he wouldn’t bet the most motivating out of this list to me (that doesn’t mean he wouldn’t at all) so he earns a 7. Norris’ physique was not exactly what I aspired to have or related to that well, so he earns a 5. With a training style least similar to mine, I have to give him a 6. That x-factor he brings to the table however earns a 9/10 with a final score of 27.

If you know anything about me and what got me into training in the first place as well as who I modeled myself after, you know I would have to include Sylvester Stallone. Knowing he would push me to train hard and be a good parter, I give him a 9.5. Sly had the perfect balance of leanness and muscular development, something I related to in my aspirations overall. This perfect relation gives him a 10/10. With an impressive training split that showed his work ethic and with a style very close to the way I train myself, I have to give Stallone’s workouts a 9.5 out of 10 here. When it comes to Sly’s x-factor, how much I admired him, his movies, and everything he meant to me growing up in the 80s and 90s – he earns a perfect 10 here. With an overall score of 39.5 out of 40, Sylvester Stallone is hands down the one I want to train with the most.
