As an eight-time winner of Mr. Olympia, there are few bodybuilding hurdles that Ronnie Coleman has been unable to conquer. With the help of stem cell therapy, Ronnie Coleman has recently shared that he has been able to add 30lbs of mass to his overall body weight.
With an audience of over 1.2 million subscribers on YouTube, Ronnie Coleman’s following is as gargantuan as his physique. Coleman took to the streaming platform to speak on the recent size increase he’s enjoyed thanks to the lack of surgeries as of late.
8X Mr. Olympia Ronnie Coleman Gives Two Cents On Size Increase To 285lbs
On Wednesday, Ronnie Coleman spoke on his YouTube channel to discuss his recent physique change thanks to stem cell treatments and enduring fewer surgeries.
“Going pretty good. Ronnie Coleman said. I’m training six days a week now, about an hour, hour and half a day, but I think most of it comes from me doing the stem cell treatments because I’ve had three so far, and every one I noticed that, you know I put on a little bit more size after each one, and less pain, and I just feel so much better.”
“I got a lot more energy than I used to have. So I have put on about 30-pounds. I went from like 255lbs to 285lbs somewhere in there. I had to weigh myself about ten times to be sure. It’s been a long time since I’ve been that heavy.”
Ronnie Coleman acknowledges that working out six days a week is obviously a factor in his recent growth. However, Coleman believes his energy was restored in large part because he is no longer suffering from the ill effects of back-to-back surgeries.

“Yeah, yeah because I’m starting to get back a little to normal a little bit you know. It’s been a while since I haven’t had surgeries like back-to-back-to-back. Coleman continued. You know, I’ve had thirteen surgeries the last five years, and I was going and I had three in one year. So I was always in the hospital for a while, I had back-to-back surgeries all the way up to 2020. That was the last time I had one.”
When asked if his diet was responsible for his 30lbs weight increase, “GOAT” was adamant that the stem cell treatments are what helped treat the numbness and pain he suffered as a result of multiple surgeries. After those issues were nipped in the bud, Coleman attests that his training became more consistent.
“No. I’ve always eaten the same thing. It’s not the diet. It’s like I said, not having to have those surgeries back-to-back you know. Me being able to work out consistently, you know for almost two years straight. Coleman stated. One in there, then six days a week, also that the stem cell had to do a lot because I used to be in a lot of pain all the time, and now it’s like, you know, it’s pain that I can take whereas you know, it’s not like I’m even feeling it.”
Coleman is tied with Lee Haney for the most Mr. Olympia wins ever recorded (8) in Men’s Open competition history. In his later age, he remains a permanent fixture in the bodybuilding community. Earlier this year, Ronnie Coleman received the coveted Lifetime Achievement Award at the Arnold Classic 2021.
Ronnie Coleman admits that numbness and weakness became an overarching problem in his life. Coleman’s doctors indicated that nerve regeneration takes around two years and that was precisely when Coleman started to feel better.
Coleman has trained most of his life, so recovery has become detrimental to his health. After taking into account the numerous surgical operations he’s gone through, Coleman appears to be in great shape. After seemingly packing on 30lbs of solid mass, Coleman accredits his recent gains to stem cell therapy and fewer surgeries hampering his body.
Too old to be that heavy….285lbs! Needs to be coming down in weight at his age…..ijs.
I was 110 kilos and 183 cm tall 10 years ago and very strong. now I am only 87 kilos and feel much better at my age now not carrying all that weight around. Time catches up with us all. Take care of your wife and children Ronnie and enjoy your blessings.
I love Ronnie but no way he is 285 right now, he looks more like 200
Where are you going for your therapy?
Ronnie is the G.O.A T a living legend … its your body and your life live and be powerful ….
If Ronnie would stop obsessively training and putting on mass after all of the surgeries he’s been through, perhaps he could actually walk again one day. I don’t see how bulking himself up to almost 300 pounds – especially at his age – is going to help with that.
I genuinely feel bad for Ronnie. He just doesn’t seem to be able to let bodybuilding go. It’s been established that one of the reasons why he’s in such bad shape is that he continually ignored doctor’s orders not to train after each of his surgeries and never gave his body a chance to heal properly. Instead he would post videos on Instagram of himself pounding away in the gym just days after having received an operation.
Nevertheless, I wish the best for him. He is truly one of the greatest of all time.
I totally agree with the first comment
Why do you need to be that heavy at almost 60 years old. Not healthy at all
Do it now for longevity and health
Not for size and aesthetics
Your body follows the mind. Continue to think positive Ronnie and your body will follow. Stem cells will direct their ways to the parts of body needed for regeneration .
Arnold at his biggest varied from 230 to 260 back in the day , yes, my favorite body builder, but Colman and modern body builders are extremely more massive than Arnold so it not that hard to to get to 285 -300+ for these monsters now , you see NFL lineman drop or gain the following season depending going for speed one year or power the next , the bigger guys can easily jump up in 30 lbs IMO
That’s sad when body builders stop taking steroids they lose all there mass and they should not been taking them at all. He’s very lucky he still alive because of steroids. I hope one day all professional bodybuilders don’t used steroids to win there titles and make money for it. To many young bodybuilders are dying of drugs. To many fans look up at these fake Champions and thing it’s ok to take steroids or drugs to win
Hay buddy glad to hear that you are doing well that’s great news do what you are doing take care and god bless✝️
Glad to hear Mr. Coleman.
BUT, my wife’s employer has been banned from selling Stem Cells anymore because FDA claims it doesn’t work. So get it while you can. They told my wife that they will be going after all that claim Stem Cell work and selling them. Best of luck..
