I keep reading how Ronnie is blessed with great genetics. I just cant see it. I think he looked good at the 1998 olympia, although i would have given the trophy to Flex Wheeler. Since 1998 i think he has gone downhill. His gut is a disgrace. I think he has bad genetics for parts such as triceps, especially the outer tricep. Genetically his abs are terrible, with a big hole in the middle of them. His biceps are very peaky but from the front they are way small. Nothing like the big round tennis ball shape that cormier has. His calves are weak, especially compared to yates.
Am i the only one out there who has this opinion?

no you are not the only one. Ronnie is gifted with genetics in certain areas, of course look at him. but he is not all around, just like you said. a true genitic freak has no weak points....you wouldn't be able to citicise one part of his body. I don't think we've seen that person yet. ronnie is Mr.O right now but i don't think he should be.

Sorry bro, but you have undoubtedly lost your mind. Ronnie may not be your favorite BB out there, but w/o good genetics there is no way he could stand where he is.

You're not the only one to notice that he's flawed, but your conclusion's absurd. Maybe it's time for glasses. Grin

your criticisms of Ronnie's arms are way off:






when Ronnie is "ON" he has arguably the greatest overall arms ever. His biceps are split with freaky detail. His triceps are not quite as good, but they tie in perfectly with his biceps, making his overall arms seem unreal (see the top two pics).

And, as a result of his:

-small waist
-flaring lats
-wide shoulders
-quad sweep
-ability to train injury free for a long period of time
-biceps definition

yes, I would say he has great genetics.

From the front Coleman's biceps look atrophied. They are very peaked but not full.

the fact that they are peaked, split and defined is what makes Ronnie's biceps arguably the greatest ever.  They are not as full as say someone like Markus Ruhl, but they don't have to be.  They make up for it in other ways:

there is absolutly no way that you get THAT big without beeing blessed with good genetics, roids or no roids.
Unless....the government has him signed up for some biological testing and they give him some geneshit that we don't even know of  Grin

I still can't believe that you think that these biceps look atrophied Huh
Check out the shape, peak, split, size, they have it ALL.

Look at the above post comparing Cutler and Coleman. Cutler's bicep is twice as big and he's like 2 inches shorter.

okay, but then by the same logic, you must say that Albert Beckles, Darrem Charles and Robby Robinson all have atrophied biceps.

bigger is not necessarily better.

Its really a matter of preference.
Some people (like myself) prefer biceps like Kevin Levrone's.
Dome shaped (not particularly peaked) with thick muscular development low on the tendon.
Personally, I think Ronnie's peaks are too extreme - it looks as though the first 1/2 of his bicep is missing.

In 2002 his biceps were horrendous (relatively speaking, as always). These pictures should suffice to demonstrate.

As you can see here, with a reduced peak, there is a glaring deficiency as the bicep approaches the insertion (or in otherwords, look at the outer segment between the peak and forearm of each picture).

Turn them both to the side in that pic and the following will be revealed:

Ronnie's lower half sticks out at far as his chest making his torso look like a giant pancake.

Cutler's chest sticks out farther than his waist ....PLUS he has far better V-Taper and full biceps AND better abs. Ronnie just looks.......odd.

Cutler's biceps are full and peaked.

Agreed, but in all honesty his arms need more overall size.
His waist is entirely too wide these days although his midsection is flat.
His latissimus dorsi are broader than ever, his deltoids are insanely wide, and he has a huge trapezius.
The factors above make his arms look  small. Its similar to Branch Warren's problem in many respects.
