Quote from Ronnie:

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.

Love that mentality. Right or wrong - True heart of a champion. Nothing else matters but winning.

Any of the Mr O's, and pretty much any IFBB Pro has to have been willing to do a lot to achieve what each of them did. What bothered me about some is how they market themselves after, too slick, too much like politicians for me.

All Ronnie did was say here it is, if you think you can do better, we'll try it again next year. "Next year" eventually ended as it does for all athletes, but it was a great run while it lasted, and did not include the skillfully packaged bs some of them adopt. Wasn't ever much but a peanut, and never more than a light weight buddy.

Coleman is the greatest Pro BB to ever win the O...but he is now the poster boy for why lifting heavy all the time and using that DoggCrapp style bullshit will just ruin your body !!!
Want to end up in a wheel chair just like me....no thanks.

DC isn't what landed him in a Wheel Chair. The Years and Years of Heavy lifting and the injuries over time add up. The guy pushed himself so Hard for so long. With tons of gear running through him. You can't come out the other end after that long without issues. Very few Top BB trained has heavy has he did.

To say DC Training is BS and will put you in a wheel chair is the BS..IMO

I love DC training when I'm not training for PL'ing. DC is what I have always fell back on. My Wife uses DC As well.

Ronnie isn't going to let a little thing like back surgery slow him down. Just another motivator.

That's what I'm thinking. Most here have probably seen a few Ronnie vids, maybe even gone looking for them. Two of the most watched are of Ronnie squatting 800 x 2 and deadlifting 800 x 2. That is not the rep scheme DC preaches. Big Ron woulda done a helluva lot of other rep schemes, exercises and weights over 20-30 yrs, maybe it is just the accumulation of all that got him, but associating Ronnie's woes with DC or any other training "guru" is a stretch.
