Thread: New MD Cover: Ronnie Coleman, King of the Freaks, Science Proves It!

    Default New MD Cover: Ronnie Coleman, King of the Freaks, Science Proves It!

    “Freak” is a term that is tossed around all too freely these days. This guy has sick, freaky legs: another competitor has a freaky back. There are plenty of bodybuilders who look like freaks, but how many can justifiably be called a “freak”, with the scientific research to support true freakhood?

    There is only one Ronnie Coleman, the eight-time Mr. Olympia champion who is king of the freaks. Ronnie has yet another distinction: now science has proven that Ronnie Coleman is a genetic freak. We’re not talking about his freaky body parts – we’re talking about Ronnie’s DNA that has been analyzed and certified as freaky.

    The bodybuilding world has called Ronnie Coleman a freak for years. When this 290-pound beast stepped on the Olympia stage, the bodybuilding universe received a jolt that was on par with a muscle-infused earthquake hitting Las Vegas. Ronnie was so much bigger than the other bodybuilders that he could eat most of his fellow competitors for breakfast. Ronnie took one look at whoever was standing next to him and thought to himself” “That guy ain’t nothing but a peanut.”

    Because Ronnie Coleman is no ordinary bodybuilder the visuals-the sheer size of his superhuman physique – do not tell the whole story of his freak status. Science has confirmed that Ronnie Coleman is in fact a genetic freak. In “the Ultimate Freak” an MD exclusive report, Peter McGough looks at the results of genetic testing done on Ronnie. It turns out that he entered this world with excellent DNA potential to be what he became, the best bodybuilder on the planet and the ultimate freak in his sport. The results of Ronnie’s DNA testing are examined in greater detail in this month’s Bodybuilding Science, “Ronnie Coleman Under the Microscope: The Genetics of a Champion.” Michael Rudolph, Ph. D., a molecular biologist and MD’s senior science editor, explains the Ronnie’s genetic profile is notable for a prominent “endurance-promoting and fat-inhibiting gene,” which enable Ronnie to perform high-volume training to induce greater muscle growth and get ripped to shreds. Ronnie does not have the myostatin-blocking version of the myostatin gene that inhibits muscle growth. This research indicates that Ronnie’s success as a bodybuilder is due to his gut-busting workouts from hell and hard work in the gym as much as his great genetics.

    The rest of the book is packed to the binder as usual – with all the latest cutting-edge research and information on bodybuilding by the industry experts and insiders who make it all happen. See you next month!

    I think we've all known for years that Ronnie is in indeed a genetic anomaly. You can't get as big and conditioned as he got without superior genetics. Sure there's the drugs and eating and training but the genetics is the key

    The most important part of his DNA was the ability to get ripped. Coupled with preserving his mass for the stage that was what was amazing, the consistency of his conditioning. It's like he could get big as hell and then always have striated glutes. lesser mortals just couldn't compete. CHAMP.

    Btw, I was looking at a pic of his FLS the other day and no one has beaten that pose for sheer crazy mass. His expression as his head is swallowed up to his chin says it all.

    Perfect cover choice!

    Ronnie was an anomaly who else could train as he did so close to a show and not tear every muscle in there body off the bone. He cant even read the word periodization let alone comprehend what it means he just trained like a motherfucker and somehow recovered. The goat
