Ever wondered what happened to the physique of Ronnie Coleman since he’s retired in 2007 ? Apparently he was supposed to make a comeback and show up at the Mr. Olympia in 2010, but we never saw him there. Yeahh buddy!

Actually he’s been showing up at a couple of events lately so he’s not entirely out of the bodybuilding scene yet.
Is Ronnie Coleman making a comeback in 2013 for the Olympia?
Many people are wondering if Ronnie is making a comeback to take a shot at the Mr. Olympia 2013. Answer is no, he is not. This is a very hot discussion topic on forums and people tend to think he still has a shot. Gimme a break the guy is 48 years old and has lost a lot of muscle mass lately (still huge tho). He’s not gonna buy back all that lean muscle mass at the grocery store.

Ronnie’s physique throughout the years :
In my opinion his best looking overall physique was attained in 1999, where he had a thin waist and better muscle definition. But one thing for sure is his most IMPRESSIVE physique was definitely in 2003. I remember when he first came on stage in ’03 he was soooo freaking HUGE I thought he wasn’t human. He had massive upper body and legs and it had a stunning effect on the spectators at the olympia.
So what does Ronnie look like now?
There have been a couple photos of him circulating on the net late 2012, so here’s a couple of them :
Ronnie at Cardiff sports nutrition
Big Ron at Fibo 2012
The Man doing a good old ”lat spread” for the crowd at Cardiff sports nutrition
If you take a look at the pictures it seems obvious that the guy is still massive and scrary, but things have changed since the Olympia days. In the first pic you can tell he has that typical ”big gut” that both active and retired bodybuilders seem to have. Of course the impressive ”V shape” he once had seems to be going away as well.
Here’s a video of him at a fitness expo recently
All that being said, the guy is freakin 48 years old!! and still has that muscle mass. I bet a ton of young bodybuilders won’t look half as good as that when they’re around their fifties. In my book Ronnie Coleman is still the legend of bodybuilding and we will have to wait a long time before we see such a talented bodybuilder on scene.
Hope you enjoyed.
