Boring to Many, but Inspirational to Us

"If you are looking for an instructional DVD to help guide you towards building an impressive physique, look elsewhere. If you are not into bodybuilding then this DVD will probably not appeal to you at all.
However, if you are into bodybuilding, and if you just want to see one of the greatest Mr. Olympias breaking down barriers in the gym, if you are looking for something to make your jaw drop and have you questioning your own definition of "intensity," then get this movie.
Clearly there will always be debate in our circles as to what defines an intense workout, what defines a good physique, or even what defines a bodybuilder. We can debate intensities and volume parameters, high carb versus low carb with refeeds, or how to best develop the outer sweep of our thighs all day long. But there is not much debate when it comes to the amazement most feel when watching some of Ronnie's training scenes in this movie.
To be a little more specific, you'll get to see some of Ronnie's day-to-day activities. You'll see him driving his nice cars, getting a massage, cooking food, and going to Black-Eyed-Pea every day. Some of this might get a little bland, but this DVD is worth the price for the training scenes alone in my opinion.
Again, for those not too interested in bodybuilding or for those looking for instructions, this is probably something you should skip. But for those of us who are into the sport, this is, in my humble opinion, one of those DVDs you write down in your "must have" list."

"This is one of the most exiting and inspiring Training-DVD of the actual Bodybuilding-World.The DVD shows in a non-boring way the courses of the Days from one of the Top-Bodybuilder,the living Legend, Ronnie Coleman."
This video isn't for the "Light Weight".

"This video may not be instructional but definitely motivatinal. Ronnie is a definite lock for Bodybuilding HOF. His freakish size and unimaginable strength will make any people who are or aren't bodybuilding fans look in awe. What makes Big Ron so special is his friendly demeanor and great down to earth attitude. He is not the type of person who rest on his laurels but a person who is focused on being the best and while keeping himself grounded. On top of that, he is a funny guy with simple country type quotes. "Ain't nuthin but a peanut". "Light Weight BABY!!" "Nuthin' to it but to do it.""
