Top 30 Muscle Movies (#30)

During the month of June, GI Athletics will be counting down our Top 30 Muscle Movies. The process of creating this list sparked many inner office arguments and someone constantly throwing down the Arnold card. The list may not be perfect and some of the choices may surprise you – but we hope this inspires you to work harder and maybe even plan a movie night.

The youngest son of an alcoholic former boxer returns home, where he’s trained by his father for competition in a mixed martial arts tournament. This puts pressure on the relationship with his brother, another fighter in the competition.

Warrior is filled with incredible performances and a captivating sportsman story. This fantastic film creates an amazing family drama while packing plenty of punches.

Tom Hardy went through intense training to gain muscle for the film during pre-production, reportedly gaining around 28 pounds of muscle. This physique was used to portray Bane in The Dark Knight Rises. Nick Nolte was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor in his portrayal of a struggling alcoholic father.
