Ronnie Coleman Tells Joe Rogan he Started Bodybuilding to Get a Free Gym Membership

One of the greatest bodybuilders to ever compete appears on one of the biggest podcasts on the planet.

At the height of his powers Ronnie Coleman was an absolute beast. Constantly looking to improve upon his massive physique, Ronnie Coleman pushed his body to the limit. The kind of training that Coleman put himself through made him standout among the field. During his heyday Coleman simply out sized almost every bodybuilder in the game.

As many are aware, Ronnie Coleman The King is known for his signature quote ‘Yeah Buddy’ and today has some of the strongest dietary supplements on the market that we’ve seen. With over 400 milligrams per serving, Ronnie’s YEAH BUDDY Preworkout contains 40 milligrams TeaCrine® and 100 milligrams of Dynamine.  Similar caffeine the blend contains Encapfeine, which is caffeine that’s been wrapped in micro-beads with varying layers. It achieves the goal of slowly releasing over the course of a workout, so the product doesn’t have quite the sudden spike in energy that you might assume. It offers an entire new level of pre workout for high level athletes. Check them out and the entire line of Ronnie Coleman Supplements.

With his intense training, massive size, and crazy conditioning, Ronnie Coleman was able to secure eight straight Olympia victories. There was a reason that the massively muscled Coleman earned the nickname “The King.”

Now, Ronnie Coleman appears on the Joe Rogan podcast to speak with the comedian and UFC commentator. A fan of bodybuilding in his younger years, Joe Rogan reflected on how incredible Ronnie Coleman was at the height of his powers.

“When I was really into bodybuilding and reading the magazines, I always said ‘you look like a dude who they invented in a Marvel comic book to kill The Hulk.’ That’s what you looked like when you were in your prime, man.”

In typical confident yet humble fashion Ronnie Coleman replied:

“I felt like I probably could too, back in those days.”
