After a major 11 hour back surgery, 8x Mr Olympia Ronnie Coleman is undergoing therapy in order to walk again. After snapping several screws that were holding mesh grates to his spine, Ronnie is currently completing assisted treadmill and stationary bike exercise in the hopes of walking across the stage to receive his induction into the International Sports Hall of Fame on March 5.
After the surgery, Ronnie shared on Instagram that his only regret is squatting 800 lb for 2 reps, rather than 4. This is Ronnie’s 4th back surgery since his last Olympia outing in 2007, adding to other major surgeries for replacing both hips and having his neck fused at level 5, 6, and 7. Yeah buddy, light weight!
So you guy's still wanna be like me, you still want to have the same work ethic is I had. Well as you can see I'm 8 X Mr Olympia and I can't walk. I endured an 11 hour major back surgery last Tuesday. Do I have any regrets?, if I had a chance to do it all over again would I change anything? Yes if I had a chance to do it all over again I would change one thing. That is when I squatted that 800lbs I would do 4 reps instead of 2, that is my only regret in my career. Those 2 reps I did still haunts me today because I know I had 4 in me but the coward in me only did 2. That is my only regret.
