Other Interesting Ronnie Coleman Facts And Trivia

  • After college, Coleman became a police officer in Arlington, Texas, and then became a reserve officer.
  • Some of the vocal tricks Coleman introduced in his training films have now become popular in the entire bodybuilding community, thanks to his unique high-pitched voice. 'Yeah, buddy!', 'Lightweight, baby!', and 'Ain't nothing but a peanut!' were among the most famous of these, which he yelled at himself as a sort of self-motivation.
  • Coleman stated in June 2020 that faulty medical treatments had left him unable to walk unassisted. Coleman's enormous weights, such as 800-pound (362.8 kg) squats and deadlifts, made a great impact on his health during his career as a powerlifter and bodybuilder. He has had many operations since 2007, and multiple hip replacements have been performed, as well as other attempts to relieve persistent discomfort caused by injured intervertebral discs. Despite his worsening condition, he continued to exercise, albeit he can now only lift light weights. When Coleman has to go long distances, he needs a wheelchair. But he has said that he doesn't regret his choices and admits that his desire to be the best bodybuilder at all costs drove him; he has also stated that the only regret he has is that he did not do more to cement his legacy.
