Guns Blazing: How Sylvester Stallone Trained for Rambo's Finale

Nearly four decades after John Rambo first took America by storm, he's back for one final chapter. We spoke with Sylvester Stallone's longtime strength coach, Gunnar Peterson, on the eve of the film's release.

Guns Blazing: How Sylvester Stallone Trained for Rambo's Finale

Gunnar Peterson says it feels like he has been training Sylvester Stallone "since the beginning of time." Filmgoers may feel like they've known the actor equally long. His two iconic characters, Rocky Balboa and John Rambo, have personified The Underdog and The Outsider for decades. And now, Rambo makes what would appear to be his final stand in "Rambo: Last Blood," hitting movie theaters on September 20.
To hear Peterson tell it, Stallone's greatest character is himself.
"Hands down, Sly is the most entertaining person I've ever met," says the Beverly Hills-based trainer to the stars, speaking by phone on his afternoon drive back from training the Los Angeles Lakers. Peterson says if you're expecting the gruff, monosyllabic Balboa when you meet Stallone, you're in for a surprise. "He's ridiculously smart and an unbelievable wordsmith."
To wit, Stallone is the only person, besides Orson Welles and Charlie Chaplin, to win Oscar nominations for Best Original Screenplay and Best Actor for the same film.
One trait Stallone shares with his on-screen characters, though, is a tremendous physicality, forged over the decades by hitting the weights and hitting them hard. Curious about how a 73-year-old would prepare to portray John Rambo in his final incarnation, I interviewed Peterson to glean his insights.
When training for the earlier Rambo movies, Sly's goal was to be as jacked as possible, I assume. Was this time different?
With training, when people don't have a deadline or an event to train for, they have to create their own goal. I do it for myself. Sly has managed over six decades to constantly dangle the carrot in front of himself, whether that's for creating a new character or bringing back an old character. Remember how many franchises this man has had—not to mention the ones that should have been franchises, but for whatever reason, didn't turn into one.
He's bringing back an iconic character here, so should the character be such a departure from the original? Did that character undergo something that made him completely change and that would change how he looks? How he moves? Or, is it just that he kept getting better? If you watch the Rocky series, he gets better and better until he peaks in IV (1985). It changes in V (1990). In "Rocky Balboa" (2006), which I trained him for, he brought back a different character. He was supposed to be 57 in that film, and he wanted to be thicker, denser, and with more mature muscle. He wanted to exert "blunt force trauma"—that was the quote from the movie. He wanted to be so strong that when Rocky hit his opponent, it just obliterated him..Keep reading.....
