There comes a point in every man’s life when he can, quite unashamedly, put away the skinny jeans and stop listening to the new-fangled bops on Radio 1 and, instead, ease into a pair of comfortable beige slacks and turn that dial to the easy-listening tunes of Radio 2. You see, aging is inevitable.

Stallone, 72, has posted an intense workout video to social media showing his preparation for the upcoming film Rambo V.

“Getting ready for Rambo Also just because you’ve REACHED a certain age doesn’t mean you have to FEEL that age! Keep pumping, keep punching!” he wrote alongside the video.

Apocalypto assistant director Adrian Grunberg has reportedly signed on to helm the film and Rambo V shooting is set to begin in September in London, Bulgaria, and the Canary Islands.
In May, Stallone even shared a teaser poster for the upcoming flick:
