With 8 Mr. Olympia titles to his name,  Ronnie Coleman‘s name has become synonymous with bodybuilding. Coleman comes from an era of Titans that made the sport what it is today. It was old-school resilience, passion, and an unparalleled desire for perfection in an era where the science of bodybuilding was disputed by anyone who had ever touched a dumbbell. So to achieve what Coleman achieved was nothing short of Olympian. But the times have changed and Coleman isn’t necessarily a fan of it.
