Living legend Ronnie Coleman posted updates about his most recent trip to the gym on Instagram this morning.
It’s been a tough road to recovery for one of the greatest the sport has ever seen. Coleman has had 12 surgeries on his spine over the past two years, but shows no signs of giving up the gym. Take a look at the video below:

Yea, yea, yea, I know what you guys thinking and yes my legs are small. I’ve been thinking seriously about doing Men’s Fitness just to spice things up a bit so I haven’t been doing much leg training. Oh and did I mention my new book is finally out. It’s called of all things “Yeah Buddy, My Incredible Story”. It’s hard cover and you guys can find out at Amazon.com. Anyone who wants a personalized copy can email me personally at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll be glad to write and inscribe anything you guys want me to inscribe, for a small fee of course. Don’t forget Christmas is right around the corner so these should make nice Christmas presents. Yeah Buddy!!!!!!!!!!
While he isn’t exactly Olympia ready anymore, Coleman is truly inspiring for his lifelong commitment to fitness. Multiple surgeries left him weaker than not only his former self but also just any average person. But, he chose to use that as an opportunity to better himself and improve his conditioning in the sport that he loved.
He also announced the title of his forthcoming book will be Yeah Buddy, My Incredible Story. Anything written by an eight-time Olympia champion sure to has advice worth reading, but Coleman’s character is what really shines here. You can take away fitness tips from anybody, but he has the real commitment to bringing his ideas to life and putting in hard work to reach his goals.
It’s an exciting new opportunity for Coleman, who recently told Muscular Development he might never walk again. Physical therapy has clearly done a lot to allow him to return to the sport he loves. His body has truly been put to the test so many times, but he’s never let life get the best of him. Best wishes to you, Ronnie, our team is hoping for a speedy recovery!
