Bodybuilder Ronnie Coleman is unquestionably one of the greatest bodybuilders of all time. The 8 Mr. Olympia titles alone made him a household name, but his character and spirit continue to make him an inspiration for all of us.
Ronnie has stated multiple times that he’ll always be training for the rest of his life, and strength and bodybuilding training will always be apart of him. But for anyone doubting the Olympia champ’s words, Ronnie Coleman has put out an Instagram post showing the king of the bodybuilding hard at work in the gym, just weeks after a major complicated surgery.
The surgery was apparently a success, but now according to Ronnie Coleman, he is set to go under the knife once more.
“I should also inform you guys that I have another surgery Thursday because the rod came loose from the screw right after surgery.”
In a new Instagram post, Ronnie goes into the details about his upcoming surgery and exactly what happened after the successful surgery.
“I am trying my best not to injure my back as I’ve just had surgery 3 weeks ago and fresh out of rehab hospital 5 days ago. I’m training at powerhouse gym downtown Columbus Ohio getting ready for the Arnold Classic.
I should also inform you guys that I have another surgery Thursday because the rod came loose from the screw right after surgery.
I was just released from the recovery room when the nurse came into my room to check my bandages.
She asked me to rollover and as soon as I did I heard a loud pop.
When I rolled back over it popped again.
My 2 week follow up appointment revealed a loose rod after X-rays.
So I’m gonna need you guys to pray for me one more time.
I’m just training so my body doesn’t atrophy as much as it already has at the moment. I’m really tiny at the moment but it’s all good because we all know muscles have memory. Dr has informed me that the surgery will only be an hour and I will not need inpatient therapy,
I will continue my outpatient therapy for sure.”
And in the meantime, Ronnie Coleman makes it to Arnold Classic Ohio!
“Just made it to the Arnold Classic. Did therapy earlier today but going to the gym tomorrow. Hope to see you guys at the Arnold seminar.”
Ronnie Coleman proved to be an unstoppable force and he is a truly special human being. Very few of us can even hope to possess the strength of spirit that seems to come so naturally to Ronnie Coleman.
We wish Ronnie Coleman all the best as he continues his struggle for health.
