King Coleman... What a guy, what a champion, and what a relentless beast in pursuit of glory! With that being said, it would seem the relentless beast doesn't know when to go to it's cave, lay down, relax and bask in it's glory.
 
I've not seen the film, but I have seen social media posts of Ronnie lifting post op etc... I find it somewhat inspiring that he is still lifting or trying post bad health etc, but also a little sad if it is actually not doing him any good.
 
He has nothing to prove obviously, he has been there and done it.
 
I do wish he had done a Dorian and just transitioned to a healthier state of mind and body.

Was a brilliant watch but at same time hard to watch him crippled and still trying to train. But that mentality enabled him to be the GOAT.
Discovered Netflix is pretty decent for strength/ BB/crossfit/running documentaries. Still haven't seen generation iron 2 yet. Enjoyed the rich froning one that was decent

Good movie, was hard to see him struggling so much but have to admit that he’s the hardest worker in the room, daam he was a beast.
Got me thinking if it’s worth it...

I'd say everything he did to win the O was worth it. Not only did he become the best bodybuilder ever, it made him a multi millionaire.
 
Then going back in the gym to lift heavy right after having double hip replacement was not worth it at all.

Bingo!
 
This is where you question if he had issues letting his glory days go.

The Narrator asked his Surgeon whether it would be a good or bad thing for Ronnie to continue heavy training, and the Surgeon was clear,  it wasn't good for his back, but It was essential (can't remember his exact words, but this was the implication) for his wellbeing in general.  This kind of suggest that Ronnie's passion, or addiction for training runs well deep. 
 
Its easy to scoff at this, but I've seen the opposite or Ronnie's reaction to disability too, where people have literally withered away into frail old men, then died prematurely.  Perhaps the way Ronnie is playing this hand isn't quite as crazy as we think?

There are ways of rehabilitating after hip replacement surgery and there are ways not too.  Ronnie chose the latter.  The sensible option would be to start walking then using something like a stationary cycling machine.  Then maybe move onto something like body weight lunges. All this would be over prolonged period of months.  Ronnie was leg pressing within weeks and has now paid the price.
 
It's not that Ronnie could never go to a gym again.  He could do light circuits.  And let's face it with his genetics and muscle memory he would still be in better shape than most on this style of training alone.

I feel sympathy in that he couldn't play the long game and give all his surgeries time to heal.

..and that is the other huge point here, Ronnie doesn't want anyone's sympathy
 
We hear of other, far lesser bodybuilders and other sportsmen crying and whining about how their sport, or their choice to take drugs has ruined their life, or blame it for all their health issues.  Ronnie appears to accept it for what it is, and rather than be bitter with the sport, he still loves it, and despite all the issues appears to be very happy with life.

I really enjoyed it. What a thoroughly nice bloke. Hope this recent surgery relieves him of some of that pain.

While others pushed themselves just as hard as Ronnie, Ronnie could never stop and let it go. He constantly defied doctors orders and went right back to training, very soon after surgery...trying to get big again! There’s a vid of him lifting in the hospital ffs. 10 back operations! But he just couldn’t let it go. Dorian pushed himself hard, but look at him now, dropped the weight,, took up Yoga and blazing!

It’s so sad, IMO he is the GOAT but his time has passed and he should not be lifting in the state he’s in. There’s even a rumour he’s unable to walk now and is permanently in a wheelchair!



I'm a massive Dorian fan as previous posts on here would testify but he is talking some right old pub b0ll0x now he's up to his gunnels in dope.




Spot on, I find it quite sad that such an intelligent guy now believes half the rubbish he spouts about drugs.  I suppose given his pre-bodybuilding Skinhead past we shouldn't be to surprised by the Holocaust denial, but there you go.  
 
The guy was my absolute favourite bodybuilder, my hero. Now he is just one of millions of deluded dopeheads.
