Let Dolph Lundgren help you reach your Maximum Potential

In 1986, at the height of his career, Dolph Lundgren released his personal workout on home video as “Dolph Lundgren’s Maximum Potential”. The video is comprised of footage of Dolph working out and narrating as he does martial arts, shadow boxes, runs, jumps rope, and a whole lot more.

I worked in video stores in the 1980s and 1990s and this video was surprisingly popular. At the video store where we sold videos, this was regularly sold out and often on back order. I guess a lot of folks in suburban New Jersey were impressed by Dolph’s physique in Rocky IV and Showdown in Little Tokyo and wanted to be like Dolph.

I never watched the tape back then, but thanks to the miracle of the internet, I can watch it in its entirety online. The video is pure magic, especially the narration.
