This is @ronniecoleman8 at the 2004 mr. olympia. this is not my favorite version of ronnie, but it is the largest version of him on the olympia stage. moreover, this is the largest physique to have ever become mr. olympia to this very day! at 5’11”, ronnie was a reported 296 pounds, shredded and striated! that is phenomenal! there have been other enormous mr. olympia champions but not one of them have come within 20 pounds of ronnie.
will we ever see a mr. olympia this large again? well, after a very interesting announcement today...there is one man who has the best chance of achieving that.
today @neil_yoda_hill1 has announced he and @big_ramy are now working together. very interesting and exciting! #ronniecoleman#bodybuilding#bodybuilder#bodybuilding#bethebiggerperson#thisisbodybuilding
In 1998 @ronniecoleman8 became the 10th man in history to become mr. olympia. he did so at 5’11” and a couple pounds shy of 250 pounds. he was shredded with great muscle separation. his size, symmetry and proportions were spectacular. the man who placed second was the highly favored @officialflexwheeler, one of the all time greats, who also looked amazing. ronnie’s conditioning that weekend was likely the deciding factor. he “came from nowhere”, and he stayed for 8 long years, tying the great @lee_haney_official. #ronniecoleman#mrolympia#bodybuilder#bodybuilding#bethebiggerperson#thisisbodybuilding
I want to wish everyone competing at the 2018 npc nationals the best of luck this weekend! i hope you all look and do better than you even dreamed!
when all is said and done, i’m really pulling for @hunterlabrada to win the overall title! i am a huge fan of his dad @leelabrada, one of the greatest bodybuilders of all time, and the man i consider (tied with mohamed makkawy) the greatest posing artist ever. but i’m also a fan of hunter’s. his physique is phenomenal, well balanced, beautifully proportioned with excellent flow. he also happens to be a great guy. i have met and spoken with him a few times over the last few years and he’s always very kind, respectful and professional. he’s a great representative of the sport and i believe he has the capability of not only turning pro this weekend, but also to be a great champion in the @ifbb_pro_league for several years to come!
best of luck, hunter! enjoy the entire experience! #hunterlabrada#npcnationals#ifbbproleague#bodybuilding#bodybuilder#bethebiggerperson#thisisbodybuilding
Happy birthday to a man i have very deep respect for, one of the sport’s great champions, 7x 212 mr. olympia; @flex_lewis!!! wishing you all the best, flex! i hope you enjoy your day, and wish you continued success at the highest level! #flexlewis#212#mrolympia#bodybuilder#bodybuilding#bethebiggerperson#thisisbodybuilding

No matter what you do, or how hard you work, there will be people who don’t appreciate you. they will say you haven’t done enough, even after you’ve given all you had.
those people suck.
and they are wrong. #bethebiggerperson#thisisbodybuilding
