The 10 Fittest Movies of All Time

“Men’s Fitness” decided to do a list of the 10 Fittest Movies of All Time.  Here they are, in no particular order . . .

1.  “Raging Bull”:  Robert De Niro did such an amazing job training to play boxer Jake LaMotta, that LaMotta himself said De Niro could have been a legit fighter.

2.  “Fight Club”:  This is the movie that turned Brad Pitt from a “skinny pretty boy” to a legit badass . . . when he wanted to be, of course.

3.  “300”:  Gerard Butler and his co-stars had to train for three months, then complete a 300-rep fitness test that included pull-ups, pushups, and deadlifts.

4.  The “Rambo” movies:  Kind of self-explanatory.  Stallone was, and still is, totally jacked.  And he spends most of the franchise shirtless.

5.  “Any Given Sunday”:  From the former football stars like Terrell Owens and Warren Moon, to Jamie Foxx, everybody’s ripped.

6.  “Pumping Iron”:  This is the 1976 bodybuilding documentary that made Arnold Schwarzenegger a household name.

7.  The “Rocky” movies:  See, “The ‘Rambo’ Movies”.

8.  “Bloodsport”:  Jean-Claude Van Damme competes in an illegal, no-holds-barred martial arts competition that’s almost like a precursor to MMA.

9.  “Enter the Dragon”:  According to “Men’s Fitness”Bruce Lee shows off, quote, “one of the best physiques in the history of film” in this movie.

10.  “Hercules” (1958):  Former Mr. Universe Steve Reeves inspired “a new era of muscle on film.”  Even Stallone has cited this as an influence on his decision to pump iron.
