We weren’t sure if Ronnie Coleman would even be able to walk again but watching him train legs after an astounding 12 surgeries is an incredible sight to see. His resilience and will-power are likely what got him those eight Olympia wins and now he’s trying to get back shape.
Coleman wrote on his Instagram…
“Trying my best to get back in shape. Legs are tiny these days but that doesn’t stop me from trying to get them bigger. 12 spine surgeries has me down but not out. Once a champion, always a champion. It’s all about mindset. My record and my stats alone are enough for me to throw in the towel.”
But the legend is doing it for himself and that’s understandable after winning the most prestigious bodybuilding contest in the World more than anyone else (Tied with Lee Haney)…
“But stats has nothing to do with wanting to be in shape, wanting to look good, wanting to be good, no matter what. I know I don’t have nothing to prove. But like I said, I wanna look good, I wanna be in great shape, I wanna look like I still compete, I wanna walk again. This is why I still train, I do it because I still love it so I will probably do it till I die. God knows I don’t want to die in the gym but if that happens, God Bless me. Once again it’s on like a marijuana bong. Yeah Buddy!!“
Here’s an Instagram clip of Coleman’s intense leg training session…
Now, back in the day when Ronnie Coleman was dominating bodybuilding, few would deny that he trained harder and heavier than anyone else.
But, that’s a big reason why he’s had to undergo so many surgeries and many names in the industry were very concerned when Coleman trained legs between his surgeries before he could fully recover.
But, it’s pretty obvious that nothing will keep Ronnie Coleman away from the weights, and we wish him all the best health.
