The eight-time Mr. Olympia Ronnie Coleman has had a lot of obstacles in recent years. He had 12 spine operations and had some serious setbacks. Once he was not sure if he would ever leave again. Fortunately, it looks like Big Ron is back in sight.
In a recent Instagram post, he said that on the recommendation of his doctor, after six months in the gym, he had a mission to get back into shape. Not surprisingly, despite what he's been through, his upper body still looks pretty jacked up. He can not walk yet, but already seems to have a more positive attitude. [1
View Post on InstagramYeah, dude !!!!! I try my best to get back in shape after the 6-month layoff after my last surgery in January. I never thought that my doctor would ever release me to start training and therapy again. Finally, you work out 5 days a week and do therapy 2 days a week. It feels so good to be in the gym again, even though it's almost 100 degrees. There is nothing in the world comparable to what you like to do in the world. I hope you also train hard, God knows that I need it the way I need food, sleep and water. Oh yes, it's back to the neck.
This is probably the longest time the king spent after the operation, and he is already exercising five days a week after receiving the green light from his doctor. He also does two physiotherapy days every week.
"There is nothing in the world comparable to what you like to do in the world," wrote Coleman. "Hopefully, you're also training hard, God knows I need that, just as I need food, sleep, and water."
In another recent post, he has canceled a lower body workout, though he can not walk. 
View Post on InstagramI try my best to get back in shape. The legs are tiny these days, but that does not stop me from making them bigger. 12 Spinal surgery did not bring me out. Once a champion, always a champion. It's just about thinking. My file and statistics alone are enough to throw in the towel. But statistics have nothing to do with being in shape, wanting to look good, wanting to be good no matter what. I know that I have nothing to prove. But like I said, I want to look good, I want to be in good shape, I want to look like I'm still competing, I want to run again. That's why I still train, I do it because I still love it, so I'll probably do it until I die. God knows I do not want to die in the gym, but when that happens, God bless me. Again it's like a marijuana taboo. Yeah buddy !!
It's safe to say that nobody loves the gym the way Coleman does. We wish him a full recovery and can not wait to track his training progress.
