8x Mr Olympia

Ronnie Coleman is the American bodybuilding champion, considered to be the greatest of all time.

He won the Mr. Olympia contest a record 8 times, the first two while still serving as a full-time police officer and collected 26 titles as an IFBB Pro.

At his peak, he had 58” chest, 24” arms, 0.33% body fat and consumed over five and a half thousand calories a day.

He was recently featured in the Netflix documentary “Ronnie Coleman: The King.”, and wrote a book “Yeah Buddy!” chronicles with his many struggles and successes in bodybuilding.
