Here's a review I found over at another forum. The video sounds great, but it's ****ing $40.
"This video is over 3 hours, so my review is not short, but read it if you are interested in the video.
OK, before I get into the meat and potatoes of the video itself, I would first like to talk about the bonus footage first, it was hilarious.
It starts of with Ronnie going to the movies at like 11:30 P.M. And is approached by two fans, and they ask him how much he weighs. He just casually says "Oh, bout' 310." and keeps on walking. He said it so nonchalantly, like 310 ain't nothing.
Cue the next scene. If anyone told me Ronnie ****ing Coleman was a metrosexual, I wouldn't have believed it, but dude is a full fledged metro, for real. He went to the nail salon to get a manicure, pedicure and foot scrub. A freakin' foot scrub...LMAO. What was funny about it was how relaxed Ronnie was. He was so relaxed that he dozed off, and the little Vietnamese lady had to smack him on the calves for him to wake up so he could lift his ginormous legs out of the water so she could scrub his feet. Turns out Ronnie is a long time customer and has been getting the tender treatment for 7 years. Who knew?
The next scene, he was showing off the house he bought for his mom and he introduced the audience to his niece. Cute little baby. He showed off the Lexus LS400 that he bought for his mom, then showed off the remainder of the house and low and behold, what do we see in one of the rooms? A cardboard box full of you guessed it - MasterPiece barbeque sauce. Da best sauce in da world!!
He also shows off his waverunners, but says he rides it only once a year. I'm surprised the wave runner can stay afloat with him on it! Then he lets on in on his dieting secrets. You ready? It's black eye peas, rice, 2 packs of equal and crumbled cornbread all mixed together. How does one develop a recipe like that? What makes someone want to put a sugar substitute and cornbread in rice and beans? He also shows off his sandows, boasting that only three other men have as many as he does, Haney, Yates and The Governator.
Before I get to the training, I need to talk about Ronnies "diet". Offseason, he only eats one meal at home, his breakfast and it's the most bizarre breakfast. He gets 3 packs of instant flavored grits and puts it in a bowl, then gets a slice of cheese and puts it in the grits and nukes it in the microwave for 6 minutes. Grits and cheese? Who eats grits and cheese? I guess Ronnie does. Who the **** am I to question Mr. Olympia? While the grits n' cheese is cooking in the microwave, Ronnie is making coffee and is frying up 2 cups of eggwhites. That's a ****load of eggwhites. When done, he mixes the eggwhites into the grits/cheese concoction. After breakfast, Ronnie pulls out a pill organizer and proceeds to pop every pill ever made by man. I lost count....seriously, i'm not embellishing, dude takes every supplement, vitamin, mineral out there, tons of it. His bloodtype has to be chromium picolinate.
The rest of his meals are eaten out. He goes to two places. Black Eye Peas and Outback Steakhouse. At Black Eye Peas, he eats chicken, corn, black eyed peas/beans and a ****ing basket of cornbread! Honestly, if I eat that much cornbread everyday, several times a day like Ronnie does, i'd be fat. He eats there twice a day and he's always saying the same **** "Mmmmm....gotta love da offseason....Mmmm." "Whole lotta cornbread...gotta love da offseason baby!!" For dinner he goes to Outback Steakhouse and he eats steak, baked potatoes and french fries. Ronnie says "Dis here ain't that baked stuff like last time, Dis the real deal...Dis here fries iz really fried, deep fried."
He eats like this EVERYDAY. Same food daily. This is what it takes to feed the machine. He's consistent with his nutrition and perhaps the people who are always looking for that magic pill or golden syringe should take note of this. Granted, we can't all eat french fries and two baskets of cornbread everyday and be lean like Ronnie, but nevertheless the message is quite clear, you gotta eat big to get big. No one gets big eating like a bird.
Now the training aspect. Before I get into it, I would like to say that nobody can ever beat Ronnie Coleman from this point on. NOBODY is in this mans league. He's a man against boys. All this talk about Jay Cutler, Dexter Jackson, Chris Cormier and Gunter Schlierkamp is just that, TALK. They simply can't hang with him, PERIOD. This video solidifies that Ronnie will be Mr. Olympia until he decides he doesn't want to compete anymore. He has first place LOCKED. The competition is for 2nd place and whatever scraps are left behind, he's the king of the hill and anyone who disputes that is either blind or does not know what bodybuilding is.
Ronnie trains some bodyparts with NPC Superheavyweight, Gus Carter. Gus the Bus is a very big dude, he's a top superheavyweight, but damn does he look small next to Ronnie.
I would also like to thank Brian Dobson for putting on a decent pair of shorts for this video. We all remember him and his nut huggin' daisy dukes last time. We could have done without the candid nut shots back then Brian, so thanks for not dressing like a reject from the Village People.
Day 1 - Shoulders and Calves
No need to bore you with calf training, i'll go into shoulders. He starts off with dumbell presses and works up to 160lb dumbells for 6 reps!! Then he says "Damn...that was heavy." Yeah, no ****. He then goes to some prehistoric looking machine that doubles as a side lateral and press machine for delts. He does several supersets of this with the entire stack. Then to some cable work for rear delts and finally shrugs. He works up to 700+ lbs on the shrugs. He didn't do them the conventional way. He did the behind the back, like Lee Haney used to do. This way is much harder and if he did it to the front, he would have probably been able to shrug well over 800lbs.
He then eats at Black Eye Peas and goes home to do cardio. Who knew watching someone do cardio would be funny? Well, I laughed, then again, I laugh at any and everything. It just looks awkward as **** when 310lb Ronnie is on the stairstepper. The strides he takes, he looks like an ostrich, a big ass ostrich, but he looks like an ostrich. It was over 100 degrees in the shade in his home gym and he's there busting his ass, in the heat doing cardio. Most guys are doing cardio in the air conditioned gym, not Ronnie. Hell, most guys don't even do cardio offseason."
