I’ve won Mr. Olympia eight years in a row – but I think I looked ‘awful’ and ‘out of shape’ in the career retrospective
AN EIGHT-TIME Mr. Olympia winner was shocked at how his body looked in a throwback photo.
When Ronnie Coleman was confronted with the photo, he was immediately hard on himself and his bodybuilding friend Jay Cutler for posting it.
Coleman insisted they both looked terrible and realized they weren’t at their best.
“Hey, where’s my other arm? I was thrown off balance because I was missing an arm,” he replied the post.
“We’re both out of shape. and we both look terrible.
“But it’s all good. That’s what the off-season was for, to be off the mark, sometimes way off.”
Cutler originally posted the photo, explaining that the photo is a reminder that he’s hitting his next 10.5-week goal.
He determined that the photo was over 15 years old in either 2005 or 2006.
The photo should show how much they have evolved over time.
“@Ronniecoleman8 and I guest posed together week after week in front of the social media hype, 16 off-season weeks on stage,” Cutler said.
“I weighed 300 pounds and Ronnie weighed 320 pounds here.”
People used the comments to express their appreciation for both bodybuilders, though they deemed the photo an “off-season.”
One person said: “Best thing ever, 2 Kings.”
Another person said, “I wonder how the stage didn’t break!!!!”
While this person said, “What a great throwback. The good old golden era. Keep it up man!”
