Even Sylvester Stallone can't resist this video of a toddler working out to 'Rocky II'

An adorable viral video of a toddler working out to the training montage from "Rocky II" has caught the eye of Sylvester Stallone.

Ok guys. Here is the video that everyone wants me to put back up of our little boy Charlie training with his favorite boxer. It brings a smile to our face every time he asks to "workout with Rocky". He takes his workouts very seriously. If you enjoy it as much as we do, please feel free to share it. Who knows, maybe it will make it back to Sly. Please keep the negative comments to yourself. No we do not allow him to watch the fight scenes and yes his tv timeis very limited. It's a 2 minute clip and he's been training for the last year!! Happy Birthday Sylvester Stallone!!

According to "Today," 2-year-old Charlie Magilavy of Ohio loves the scene from the 1979 film so much that he has the moves memorized.

"For the last eight or nine months, he asked us once a day if he can watch it," Charlie's father, Zack Magilavy, told "Today." "Over time, he started doing one move here and one move there until he had the whole routine down."
