Although he would eventually topple ‘The King’ and reign as Mr. Olympia, Jay Cutler placed second to Ronnie Coleman for a number of years in one of the fiercest rivalries in the sport.
In an extraordinary clip from the brand new bodybuilding documentary film, ‘Ronnie Coleman: The King’, Cutler admits that he sometimes wishes he could emulate Ronnie’s never-say-die attitude and how he pushed his body past the limits in the gym. The former 4x Mr. Olympia wishes he could look back the way Ronnie does with the only regret not hitting the weights harder!
Coleman holds the world record for the most Mr. Olympia victories, a distinction he shares with Lee Haney at eight Sandow trophies. The former policeman is known to many fans around the world as the greatest bodybuilder of all time – bringing the best physical size to the competitive stage while still maintaining conditioning. Coleman has undergone major surgeries over the years on his spine, neck and hips and the film highlights the sacrifices he had to make to become the best of the best.
‘Ronnie Coleman: The King’ is one of many bodybuilding documentaries produced by the Generation Iron Network – with other titles including Generation Iron 1 & 2, CT Fletcher: My Magnificent Obsession, and Kai Greene: Believe.
