“Rambo” actor Sylvester Stallone prepped his daughters for a move to New York City by having them train in self defense with U.S. Navy SEALs, the girls revealed in a recent interview with The New York Post.

During the interview, published just a few days ahead of the February 21 release of season two of “The Family Stallone,” daughters Sistine (25) and Sophia (27) said that the six-hour training even included chasing chickens.

“It was the hardest. It was about six hours we were in those woods,” Sistine said. “Sophia and I got our asses whooped by these guys. They were the real deal … And I’m not surprised my dad put us through something like this because our entire life we grew up with him doing these sort of military-esque, self-defense trainings.”

The training was filmed for the Paramount+ reality series — and the only daughter who was exempt from it was 21-year-old Scarlet, who is a college student in Miami, FL: “I was so happy I was not involved.”

Sophia noted that their father had been training them himself from a young age, waking them up early and insisting on a regimen that included protein intake and weight-lifting.

“It was a rigorous routine. Every day at 6 a.m., he would make us eat eggs with ketchup. For some reason, that combination … to bulk up,” she said, adding, “But then it was a lot of sit ups, push ups, pull ups, clean and jerks.”

Sistine joked then that the “Rocky” star had been raising “perfect boys,” but said that even with a lifetime of training, chasing chickens turned out to be a lot tougher than expected.

“That is deceivingly hard. I went in there a little cocky, no pun intended. I got beat by the chicken,” Sistine laughed.

“I don’t think he’ll ever be less nervous,” she continued. “He’s like a classic, overprotective dad. Three daughters at an age where, you know, we’re kind of all over the place and we’re out and about.”
