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!

My personal favorite version of 8X Mr. Olympia @ronniecoleman8 was his 1999 Mr. Olympia look...and actually his look throughout the post Olympia tour that year as well. He was up a few pounds from the year before at 256 pounds. Full, round and shredded! Just about unbeatable! He got bigger in the 2000’s, but here he had the ultimate combination of Size, Symmetry and Proportions with tremendous Conditioning.

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.

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!

Here are 6 amazing photos of 6X Mr. Olympia @thedorianyates.
Enjoy.
Crazy day ahead of me at work...so this may be the post of the day.
Hope everyone has an amazing day. Nothing can stop you.
Except, maybe a guy who looks like Dorian does in these pix. But other than that...NOTHING can stop you!

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.

@thedorianyates in a stunning shot taking by @tonydohertyoz at the 1992 Mr. Olympia. At 5’10.5” Dorian was 242 pounds and ripped to shreds. His conditioning had been stellar the year before but in ‘92 he took it to a new level. He won his first of 6 consecutive Mr. Olympia Titles.
In 1993 he would blow this physique and any physique that had ever preceded it completely away.
