A viral video showing an adorable tot, named Charlie Magilavy, copying the training routine from the 1979 film, Rocky II, has again captured the internet. 

Still wearing a nappy, the little guy follows Rocky's every move from one-handed push-ups to the speed bag routine, it's just too adorable and hilarious. 

Originally posted back in 2016 by his dad Zack, the video was recently reposted and this time racked up more than 9 million views. 

Leaving many impressed, the toddler received praise for his coordination and ability to memorise all the moves at such a young age. 

Charlie even managed to impress Sylvester Stallone himself, with the actor sharing the video via Instagram

Watch the video below to see the little champ in action:
