Ronnie Coleman pushed his body to the limit.
Bodybuilding has been filled with some pretty special talents over the years. Some of those all time greats are Ronnie Coleman and Kevin Levrone. Both men have cultivated a massive body of work that produced multiple championships. Ronnie Coleman and Kevin Levrone put in the work and sacrificed so much to achieve their goals. But it can be argued that Coleman may have sacrificed more than he bargained for.
While Kevin Levrone is still going strong with a powerful frame and physique, Ronnie Coleman, “The King”, the legend, the eight time Olympia champion, has been reduced to a shadow of his former self. Was it due to his intense training? Was it because of genetics? It’s a question with a complicated answer.
When posed with that very question, Kevin Levrone answered emphatically. Check out his Instagram post below.
Hebrews 12:1-3 Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. #ronniecoleman #runyourrace #noshame #liveinthemoment #opportunity #loverightnow #openyourheart #yourtestimony #bearolemodel My brother @tonydohertyoz can relate to all this! FYI @ronniecoleman8 is a Champions Champion has the will of a warrior. What you are witnessing right now, is exactly the reason why he became 8 Time Mr. Olympia. #noshame
