People are accusing Sylvester Stallone of using fake weights during his workouts. TikToker @azrizakariya made a case for why he thinks that Sly is using fake weights in a video he posted.
In Sly’s video, the TikToker notes that the Rocky star is completing a ‘front raise’ exercise by kneeling on the fall while lifting two plates above his shoulder and standing up to his feet. He continued to do the exercise with 45lb (20kg) weights in each hand.

One fan commented on Sly’s video, saying, “Not going to hate but those plates look fake.” Even Fitness YouTuber Simon Miller commented that he wasn’t sure if the weights were real, and even thought the video must have been a joke.
“Not gunna lie when I first saw it I thought Sylvester Stallone was just having a little bit of a joke – he’s making really weird noises and it was like no lift I’ve ever seen before,” Simon says about the video.
Maybe we’ll never know!
“Of course if you’re going to be on the floor and you’re going to hold two 45 pound plates and then try and stand up with them held out at your sides, that’s going to be really difficult.”
