Ronnie Coleman - On The Road on Digital Download.
Being only a week after the Olympia I am reminded of this All-time Best Seller featuring the Olympia record holder Ronnie Coleman.
See Ronnie's full HARDCORE WORKOUT and POSING, shot when on the road in Australia, 5 days after his 8th Olympia victory.
Ronnie is hard and ripped as he goes through his full body workout. Between sets, Ronnie explains how and why he does each exercise as he reveals some of his training techniques. Witness the insanely heavy weights used, and see Ronnie perform his Mr Olympia posing routine on stage in Australia. Plus much more.

|2016 Olympia Wrap Up - Part 2!!
2016 Olympia Wrap Up - Part 2.
I made some predictions pre-Olympia as to placings. I later changed my prediction slightly on Kevin to say he would place between 15th to last. He placed equal 16th as the judges only placed the 19 guys down to 15th place.
Here is my before and after list for interest sake only, see at the bottom. My best prediction was that William Bonac would do well and he placed 5th this year. He seems to be the main newer guy on the rise. But do not count out Dallas McCarver and Josh Lenartowicz as potential new threats to the top 3 positions in the next year or so.
Finally take a look at Kevin Levrone in the Olympia Pump Room in 2000. That year he was probably at his peak placing second to Big Ronnie. Standing back stage with Kevin, I thought at the time he was a very good chance to win. But Ronnie was invincible in that period.

PS. I have a small correction to make where I was writing about the highest placed Aussies in the Mr Olympia. There is one more who holds the joint record of 6th place with Roger Walker and Lee Priest. That is SONNY SCHMIDT in 1991.
Here are the top placings in the 1991 Mr. Olympia:
1. Lee Haney - USA
2. Dorian Yates - England
3. Vince Taylor - USA
4. Lee Labrada - USA
5. Shawn Ray - USA
6. Sonny Schmidt - Australia
My Predictions for Mr Olympia followed by their Actual Placings.
1. Phil Heath – USA 1st
2. Shawn Rhoden – USA 2nd
3. Dexter Jackson – USA 3rd
4. Cedric McMillan – USA 7th
5. Mamdouh Elssbiay – Egypt 4th
6. William Bonac – Netherlands 5th
7. Josh Lenartowicz – Australia 9th
8. Justin Compton – USA 10th

|2016 Olympia Wrap Up!!
2016 Olympia Wrap Up.
It was another amazing year of Olympia History in Las Vegas last weekend. Phil Heath drew level with Dorian Yates on 6 Olympia titles, and Flex Lewis made it 5 titles in his 212 class.
We saw the much anticipated return of the Legend - Kevin Levrone. He looked amazing but I must add, for a guy of 52 years, and 13 years after his last Olympia. The fans loved seeing him again and Kevin was an absolute credit to himself and the sport he loves. He was the best he could possibly be and I admire what he has achieved - both for this comeback and his past record.
Josh Lenartowicz of Australia also made a great debut placing in the top 10. I felt he should have been 8th but the judges gave him 9th place, still pretty good for a first Olympia. Our last Aussie in the Mr O was Lee Priest back in 2003.
