Ronnie might be less than 5'10" now because of all the back surgeries that he's been through, but in his prime he was a legit 5'10" guy. To be honest I wouldn't be surprised if he measured 5'11" at some point in his life and then lost some height due to the insane weight training that he did. This man has squated 800 lbs so I can only imagine what that does to a person's spine. For the "most likely" scenario I think he was 5'10" - 5'10.25" on stage for all of his Mr. Olympia wins. There's a video of him being interviewed backstage by Triple H where he looks kind of short, but Triple H is an above 6'0" dude in dress shoes that potentially give him 2-3 inches of extra height while Ronnie was barefoot.

How about body builder choon tan who is said to be the worlds shortest bodybuilder at 4ft 10? He seems shorter than that to me maybe 4ft 8 or under

Legitimate 5 foot 10 , at least over 300 pounds .

Rob please do more bodybuilders. Iv'e followed your page since 5 years ago since I became increasingly insecure about my height. Being measured by the doctors at 5'7 when I was 18, I am more closer to 5'6.5 at night with a bald head. I'm around 5'7.75 in the morning. What would my height be? Also, can you please please make a page for Shawn Ray and Lee Priest. These are two of my main inspirations as I lift weights a lot. I would love to know how tall they really are. Thanks man!

Hes just one inch taller than Dorian
...Dorian Yates barefoot stand 5'9" ... but Never forger than lot of big Iron Warrior (Powerlifters/Oly lifters/BB/ S.M) know enormous tall variation bettween evening and morning 2inch in rare case...vs on half inch for majority of pearson...if you dont trust me see Astronauts tall variation...cause is vertebral disks
ManKo said on 25/Apr/18
@Leno Bigrammy is 175 cm or 5'9, I have met him too and took some photos with him and he is no more than that. As more athletes, he claims his height in shoes or add one inch to his real height
Leno said on 8/Apr/18
Big Rammy is 5'10, I think prime Ronnie was the same size as Rammy, but nowadays I doubt it
farian said on 19/Mar/18
i don't understand why everyone say he is an inch taller than kevin levrone or even saying levrone is like 5'8, when kevin stands up straight he is almost the same as ronnie who i would say is pretty much a legit 5'10, levrone was 5'9 and 1/2 in his prime and 5'9 nowadays i have a picture that proves it.

"No way he's this tall. Next to Arnold he's 5'9 at most."

Arnold is in shoes, probably with lifts or a generous heel
Dingus said on 18/Dec/17
IMO he's just under the mark these days.

Hi Guys
If anyone's wondering about Bodybuilder height claims stumbled across a few and can link/ reference if necessary. Flex Wheeler claims a specific 5ft10.5 ( Click Here ) which is interesting. Coleman claims 5ft11, I will add I do believe he looks near this as for somebody whom carried around 300 pounds offseason ( Training videos ) in my opinion, he looked of decent height ( 5ft10-10.5 ish ) . As specified on this site Cutler claims 5ft9, 5ft8 looks reasonable, his proportions are not similar to smaller guys such as Kai Greene. Dorian Yates claimed 5ft11 I believe in his interview with Seth Rogan, meanwhile Lee Priest on one occasion described himself as 5ft4.5.Does anyone know if Levrone has claimed a height? Levrone-Yates shots both show them considerably taller than Shaun Ray I believe which suggests they must be near average if nothing else. Also wasn't Ramy taller than Heath in this recent Olympia, looks over 5ft9 to me?
santgr said on 27/Nov/17
Rob can you add Big Ramy? Is he around the same height as Ronnie at his peak?

Kevin Levrone claims 5'11 still when he is definitely below 5'9 now. Jay Cutler, I was told by someone who spent a while with him, is shorter than me and I am 5'9 and 1/2 midday. I would say that Ronnie Coleman when he was younger was just over 5'10, but now I don't know because of his surgeries. I can tell you for certain that Flex Wheeler is at least 5'10 and 1/2 now, because I met him at the LA Fit Expo this yr and he had a good inch on me easy. So when he was younger Flex was over 5'11 for sure.

John said on 7/Aug/17
Im 5'8 and my friend who met him is slightly shorter than him, and he is at least 5'10 range. I actually think Ronnie needs a bump up to 5'11.
even said on 17/Jul/17
in his career he was 5'10" and 330 lbs
ok said on 1/Jun/17
He is me in heels .. saw him at a gym but absolute tank
berta said on 13/Apr/17
i think its sad that todays bodybuilder are all max 175 well a few guys are taller but i would like to see many guuys in the 190 range aswell.the reason is ofcourse that its harder to get the proportions as big for bigger guys. this guy can sometimes look tall when he poses i thought at first he was like 6 foot ore taller but beside other he look 177-179 maybe?
ok said on 28/Mar/17
tank still 5'11.5 imo
abe said on 8/Mar/17
5 10 maximum
RP said on 21/Dec/16
I've personally met Lee Haney at Exzel Fitness in Spartanburg, SC last year...he was spot on 5'11" ....so, a chance that at his peak height in his younger days he was 5'11.5",, Haney himself & Weider publications used to always claim 5'11.5" for Lee in the 80's & early 90's....
yaniv maor said on 5/Oct/16
levrone was 5'9 - now 5'8+ ..he lies about his height for sure
ronnie was 5'10 - now 5'9 tops because of injuries
wheeler was almost 5'9.5..and is probably around 5'9 now
short bodybuilders usually dont lie about their height because they are already short..but the avarage height types have a complex..
you need to watch a lot of images on stage when they are barefoot and compare heights
andre said on 11/Sep/16
i fell ronnie is 5ft9 barefoot 5ft9.5 at his prime
jay cutler is 5ft7 barefoot
Wipeout said on 6/Sep/16
Remember, Ronnie is 52 now plus has had all sorts of joint injuries and surgeries. His peak height seemed a solid 179 cm but now he is looking honestly under 175 cm. He lost a lot of height. Possibly close to 2 inches in the past 10 years.

Peak: 5'10.25
Current 5'8.75

As far as the others, I think Jay Cutler was at 5'8.75 at his peak (now 5'8.5) and Kai Greene is 5'7.75. Big Ramy is about 5'9.5. Phil Heath is 5'9.5 and Kevin Levrone was 5'9.75 but at 52 is now 5'9.

Rob how about you were mistaken in the past 15 years , i bought leica measuring system it was like infra red measuring technology and my measuring was exact the same as seca stadiometer reading. How about tape measure was not that accurate Rob ? Pls reply
Editor Rob: the leicester model I have tested a couple of them and both have the small error, I have many tape measures and they are all precise.

actually i've seen some videos and i must go back

phil may be 5'8.5 and jay cutler is around an inch shorter, so 5'8-5'7.5 is good for jay

Ronnie was I believe 5'9 max, usually I believe when a person claims 5'11 they are from 5'8 to 5'10......
Click Here here you can see he's with Elliot of strength camp, and Elliot is only 5'8 barefoot.
no possible way he is 5'10 or ever 5'11. Since he swam all the as a kid

maybe lost a Little height by now? He can barely stand his back and hips is totaly destroyed.
Pjdaddy said on 3/Apr/16
When I say he dwarfed me I don't mean height as I was taller. I meant at 230lbs with 17.5 arms, 48 inch chest, 36 waist and 25 inch thighs he made me look small. Man had to be close to 300 lbs. He was in a tank top and shorts and he looked like me when I stand next to a 160 lb guy. I'm very sure he is just under 5'10. I'll give him 5'10" morning height as this meeting was probably at 10 pm after he probably got done with his 700 Lv squat leg day lol
MD said on 28/Mar/16
@yea buddy,

Back in this 1994 Baltimore Sun article, Levrone was descibed as 5'9" (Click Here), and just looking at him and putting him up against the rest, he is certainly not any taller than this. Seems like with a lot of folks, he got "taller" as he got more famous. lol He honestly only looks about two inches taller than a listed 5'6" Dexter Jackson, and that if that's dexter's actual height.
berta said on 24/Mar/16
i Think Coleman is 2 cm shorter now. his body is completely destroyed.
caliban said on 18/Feb/16
Rob, If Coleman is 5'10 that makes Dorian Yates go to 175cm max, right?
Editor Rob: around that mark could be possible
yea buddy said on 17/Feb/16
Rob, how tall do you think kevin levrone(lists range from 5'10 to 5'11, but he is shorter than phil heath in many shots), phil heath(always listed as 5'9) and dorian yates(listed from 5'9 to 5'10) are?

And could ronnie be 5'9.75?
Editor Rob: Ronnie can be argued 5ft 9.5-10 range, Kevin I wouldn't have guessed over 5ft 10, his height can range a bit too.
Johno said on 7/Feb/16
With Dorian, he did not look taller then Kevin on stage barefoot and infact Kevin looked a bit taller but Kevin is close to 2 inches shorter then Coleman but the problem is, Dorian looked closer to Coleman's height then Kevin did.
Johno said on 7/Feb/16
Coleman is 5'9.5 just like Flex Wheeler. Kevin Leverone is 5'8, Phil Heath 5'8.5, Jay Cutler 5'7.5 [wears big boots at times], Kai Greene 5'7, Big Ramy 5'9.5, Markus Ruhl 5'8.5, Dorian Yates 5'8.5, Dennis Wolfe 5'11 to name just a few. I am pretty positive these athletes are not outside 0.5 inches of these estimates.
Hugzz said on 21/Jan/16
Hey Rob, why the change to simply 5 ft 10? I see lots of videos of him vs Jay cutler on stage and there seems to be a slightly bigger gap in height than just 2 inches, yet I absolutely don't think Jay is below 5 ft 8.
Many pictures hes similar height to Phil Heath even.

Also, what are your thoughts on kai greene and phil heaths height?
With thanks, Hugzz
Editor Rob: not sure there really is any more than 2, sometimes even it can look 1.5
Sylvester said on 24/Dec/15
Rob,could You list the Height of Dorian Yates?Many sites claim 5 10 -5 9 .What s the real height mark according to You?
Jay said on 2/Dec/15
Rob ,the bodybuilder Dorian Yates is listed as 5'10.
Do You think it is a legit height or not?If You have seen some picture of him
Sam said on 11/Sep/15
Yeah, in a different sense other than height I can imagine a lot of average built people feeling dwarfed next to him.
MD said on 24/Aug/15
@Modeus,

Some people use "dwarfed" for things other than height. Sometimes, people use it for physical size, and in that kind of definition, Coleman would dwarf the vast majority of people.
Modeus said on 20/Aug/15
Pjdaddy says on 14/Mar/14
I'm 5'10".5 and he is shorter than me. 69.75 inches best guess. Shook hand with him at a Mavs game, we were both in sneakers. I'm a sold guy, 230lb, he dwarfed me. My wife said I've never seen you stand next to someone your own height and look small. We are also the same age

how he could have dwarfed you when he's the same height as you? that just doesnt make any sense
Kourosh said on 8/May/15
im convinced he is just a good 5'9 no more.

178 could be his early days, i mean barefooted.
Kourosh said on 8/May/15
Thank you rob so he is 5'11 or 181 cm in them?. because to me they are very thick soled sneakers??

1.25 is = 3.175 cm so he is 177cm barefoot.
[Editor Rob:
A lot of running sneakers or high-tops have a concave insole and the outside looks 1.5 even 1.75 but the insole sits a fraction lower.

whatever he is, a good 3cm taller in them I'd say. 181 is possible yes.]
Kourosh said on 8/May/15
rob he wears very thick heeled shoes, how much of height he is getting it from them?

8:22 Click Here

is he over 5'11 or in 5'11 ranges in there?
[Editor Rob: I don't know the brand, but I would doubt they were more than 1.25 types...]

At least 5'11". Either that or Cutler is 5'6"-7" because Ronnie always looks a good 3-4 inches taller.

Ocelot I totally agree with your estimates. I'd add Dorian Yates who I think is 174cm, Mike Ergas who I think is 168cm and Kris Gethin who I think is 170cm tall.

5'10" is perfect for Coleman.
Physics Enemy said on 1/Dec/11
Rob is 5' 8.15" (173.1 at his low), so I say he's 5' 8.2" midday or 5' 8.25" as a general figure to the nearest quarter inch. I think Mamun's a solid 1 cm shorter.
Alex said on 30/Nov/11
Physics, we dont know for sure if Mamun is 5'7.75. He looks about Rob's height. He's probably a hair shorter than Rob but can still be 5'8 flat since Rob is a good 5'8 1/8
Mathew said on 29/Nov/11
Hard to see him measuring above 5'9.5" with Mamun.
Physics Enemy said on 28/Nov/11
Mamun is actually 5' 7.75", so Coleman may well be 5' 9.25" today.

He's closer to 5'9 than 5'10 now. He might have been around 5'10.5 at one time in his life though.
klem said on 11/Oct/11
I saw a picture of him with an 180 cm guy, the are both leaning but Ronnie seemed to be 178 cm max. I think his exact height is 177.5cm, 1 inch under 180 cm(because 180 is not quite 5-11). That guy claims 180 cm and competes in fitness category so he knows his height as he is measured officially often.
Danimal said on 10/Oct/11
Alex says on 8/Oct/11
Danimal, think Coleman lost height? He looks 5'9 1/2 with Mamun

Hard to say. He did some serious heavy lifting for years and he's almost 50. He may have dropped .5".

Danimal, think Coleman lost height? He looks 5'9 1/2 with Mamun

I think he was definitely a solid 5' 10" in the early 90's, Legend. I'm not sure about now though, he could have lost a bit of height. Likely has done.

Yeah, he was 5'10" in the 90's. Had a little bit of height on 5'9" Kevin Levrone.
Danimal said on 6/Oct/11
Legend says on 5/Oct/11
You have guessed Coleman at 5'9.5 yourself. I'm not budging from my 5'9-5'9.5 estimate for Coleman.

MAN, you always give EVERYONE their LOWEST possible height and then subtract another .5"-1" off of that. Dude, why are you so insecure that you need to lower everyone else's height?
Physics Enemy said on 6/Oct/11
I'm just saying Coleman may well be taller in the early 90s than he is now. Heck, he may be taller in that 2001 stage photo with Cutler than he now. I think he's a little under 5' 10" (now). I'd be really interested to meet Ronnie for a height comparison. It would be close I suspect.
Alex said on 6/Oct/11
Physics, in the picture on the stage Coleman looked 3 inches taller! But could have been the angle or the distance where the picture was taken from though. I think Coleman 5'9.5 and Cutler 5'7.5.
Legend said on 5/Oct/11
You have guessed Coleman at 5'9.5 yourself. I'm not budging from my 5'9-5'9.5 estimate for Coleman.

Physics Enemy, Coleman isn't 5'10 though. That's all but fact.
Physics Enemy said on 3/Oct/11
Alex, Rob thought the difference was 2". Maybe it is and I was overestimating. 2" is probably more than I realise. I think 5' 8" and 5' 10" is pretty fair, there's clearly a solid 2" gap and that puts them 1" under 'listed' heights.
Shaun said on 3/Oct/11
177cm in my opinion.
Alex said on 3/Oct/11
Physics, yea a 5'9.5 Ronnie could still result in a 5'7 Jay in those pics you posted below. Looks over 2 inches between them there.
Legend said on 3/Oct/11
Ronnie is 5'9 in my opinion, but I can go with 5'9.5 max. Cutler is 5'7.75 or so.
Physics Enemy said on 29/Sep/11
Ok Rob, I hope you can knock off the 0.5" for Cutler. If Ronnie is at least 1" under his listed 5' 11", it makes sense Cutler is also at least 1" under his listed 5' 9". Leaving a solid 2" difference still, as evident from pics.
Physics Enemy said on 29/Sep/11
Greene 5' 7", Cutler 5' 7.5", Heath 5' 8", Coleman 5' 9.5" are my best guesses. Cutler's pretty short, I've seen him in vids with 'normal' people and he always looks short. Coleman looks fairly solid. These heights also mean Ronnie has 2" on Cutler and Heath has 0.5" on Cutler; which agrees with most pic evidence.

Doesn't change Rob's opinion though. :-(
[Editor Rob: I would need to set aside time to look at jay to see if I think he is shorter, I've briefly looked but not enough yet.]
Legend said on 29/Sep/11
He looks a flat 5'7. Cutler must really be less than 5'8. These guys look huge but average guys like us make them look short.
Physics Enemy said on 28/Sep/11
Probably Legend, I think he's slightly shorter than Cutler, though I haven't analysed it properly. He gets listed 5' 8", so knock off the standard 1" ...
Legend said on 28/Sep/11
Isn't Kai Greene supposed to be 5'7?
Physics Enemy said on 27/Sep/11
Legend - I think Cutler is 5' 7.5", Heath is 5' 8" and Coleman is 5' 9.5". Coleman looks borderline tall in many vids, so don't think he's any less.

Heath's actually shorter than I realised. He's barely taller than Cutler and not much taller than Kai Greene. I can't believe Rob has Cutler at 5' 8.5".
Legend said on 26/Sep/11
@physics

I agree that Cutler is under 5'8. I'll say Heath is 5'8.5 and Coleman is between 5'9 and 5'9.5 range.
Physics Enemy said on 26/Sep/11
The pictures prove more than our own gut feelings. The pictures show there's at least a 2" gap, arguably more. Coleman is just quite a bit taller than Cutler. You guys want to maintain a 1.5" difference to suit your agendas, rather than from the evidence.

I've actually lost a bit of respect for Rob regarding Coleman/Cutler, because he's ignored the evidence to list Jay higher than he actually looks. He even said himself it was 'possibly 2 inches'; but it's more from the pics I linked.

I have no problem with Jay being listed 5' 8.5", but I'd then list Coleman at 5' 10.5" or even a full 5' 11" to stay consistent.

Ohh and another thing; Jay Cutler looks 1" shorter than 5' 9" listed Phil Heath. Doesn't that throw a spanner in the works. Cutler's barely 1.5" taller than 5' 6" Dexter Jackson.
Legend said on 26/Sep/11
@Physics,

Cutler is 5'7.5 and Ronnie is 5'9 regardless of what these pictures "prove"
Sword said on 24/Sep/11
He seems more 177cm in this photo near Mamun.
Physics Enemy said on 24/Sep/11
If you think Coleman is 5' 9" Legend, then Cutler is under 5' 7":

I think Cutler is an evening-length shoes 173-174.Coleman in the neck 176-177.

It's possible, but I might go with 5'9 over 5'9.5, not that it's a big difference anyway lol
Physics Enemy said on 10/Sep/11
Alex - Click Here

There's MIN 2 inches between Coleman and Cutler in this vid, I think slightly more though. That's why I'm sure Cutler is well under 5' 8".

He looks a hair taller than Mamun in the picture but Mamun is closer to the camera. If there were the same distance I think Coleman would have over an inch on him. 5'9.5 is my best guess.
Legend said on 10/Sep/11
Alex you're close. I think Coleman is 5'9 though.
Alex said on 9/Sep/11
Physics, 2 inches min between Coleman and Cutler? Got a few pics to show? Coleman does look over 5'9 with 5'8 Mamun though. 5'9 1/2 is my best guess for him meaning Cutler at 5'8 tops?
Alex said on 9/Sep/11
Vegas, I just saw the picture with Coleman and Big Show as I was scrolling down haha. Big Show is minimum 6'11! but either way thats at least 13-14 inches difference. Coleman I put somewhere from 5'9-5'9 1/2 range.
batu said on 3/Sep/11
i ve seen him in real life. im 6"4 he was at least 17-18 cms shorter than me.i think he is sth like 5"9.
Physics Enemy said on 3/Sep/11
I'm not sure on that Dave, I've seen vids where Yates is the same height as Levrone. That made me think Levrone might wear lifts lol. I'm gonna check out some Olympia vids to gauge Yates' height.
Dave said on 2/Sep/11
Dorian Yates is a genuine 5ft 10inches, I can vouch for that
Physics Enemy said on 1/Sep/11
Cutler is MIN 2" shorter than Coleman, Legend. The 2001 Mr O vid doesn't lie. If Coleman is 5' 9" then Cutler is 5' 6.75". I think Colemans 5' 9.25" and Cutler is 5' 7". Cutler makes Coleman look tall. Cutler is 1" taller than legit 5' 6" Dexter Jackson. Cutler is WAY overlisted on here.
Legend said on 31/Aug/11
Cutler - 5'7.75
Coleman - 5'9 max
Physics Enemy said on 31/Aug/11
Alex - Cutler is more than 1.5" shorter than Coleman, there's min 2" between them in the 2001 Mr O Vid I linked on here. I think Cutler is 5' 7.5" MAX. It's very pheasible to me that Cutler is 5' 7" and Ronnie is 5' 9". Another reason I believe this is because Cutler looks 1" taller than legit 5' 6" Dexter Jackson when they're side by side in the 2008 Mr O Finals.
Legend said on 31/Aug/11
@Vegas

I'm speechless. I really am. Ronnie is clearly breathing in and stretching out all the way up while Flex is actually slightly tilting his head down. You are unbelievable. Get a grip. There's hardly even a half inch between them.
Alex said on 30/Aug/11
I'd put Cutler at 5'8 and Coleman at 5'9 1/2
Physics Enemy said on 30/Aug/11
Yes eric, he ALWAYS wears monster Nikes that give a big height increase. I bet my life that he's wearing them with Mamun, since he wears them to all guest posings from what I've seen. I really think Ronnie is 5' 9" barefoot.

Those massive Nikes he wears add more than 1", they add about 1.5". I know because my Nike Air Max's are much smaller than his and add just over 1".
eric said on 29/Aug/11
Big ron sat in front of me last week at the dallas cowboys preseason game. My first time seeing him in person and what was shocking to me was how short he looked. I got a pic with him while he got up during half time. He was wearing some monster nikes, boost his height by 1 inch maybe 1 and a half. Im 5' 11 and was wearing worn out sandles that wouldnt boost my height even if i wanted them to. Ronnie is 5' 9.25 barefoot and 5' 10.25 with those massive nikes. u can tell in the pic im slightly taller. sorry i dont know how to post the pic on this website. anybody know
Physics Enemy said on 29/Aug/11
Vegas, Ronnie looks to be tilting his head up and stretching his neck there. Flex looks more relaxed to me. I think there's 0.5" difference from the vid.
Legend said on 28/Aug/11
@Physics Enemy

The problem here is how much bodybuilding exaggerates heights. It throws everyone's math off.
Physics Enemy said on 27/Aug/11
Here Rob, here's examples of Coleman's footwear, always big Nike's:

Click Here
Click Here
Click Here
I guarantee he had a noteable footwear advantage over Mamun. Ronnie is 5' 9".
Physics Enemy said on 27/Aug/11
Ronnie is doing a very good job of looking barely 5' 9" next to Bob Sapp:
Click Here!/photo.php?fbid=10150213162041569&set=a.10150213161706569.305784.299010991568&type=1&theater

If Sapp is 6' 4" then Coleman can't be more than 5' 9", surely? I'd also like to know Ronnie's footwear next to Mamun; Ronnie has a habit of wearing huge Nike's in the majority of pics I see.

Ronnie 5' 9", Wheeler 5' 8.5", Cutler 5' 7" and Levrone 5' 8". This actually makes sense because Dexter Jackson is a legit 5' 6" and Cutler only looks 1" taller next to him in the 2008 Mr O Finals.
Physics Enemy said on 27/Aug/11
Ok thanks Legend. If Flex is 5' 8" then Coleman is 5' 8.5". Cutler is no less than 2" shorter than Ronnie (see 2001 vid), putting Cutler at 5' 6.5". That's the Maths ... but does it sound plausible?

I think Flex at 5' 8.5", Ronnie at 5' 9" and Cutler at 5' 7" may be a better estimate. The reason I say that is because Flex has 0.5" on Levrone and I'm highly confident Levrone isn't under 5' 8".
Legend said on 26/Aug/11
He's not more than 5'9.5 on a good day...
Physics Enemy said on 26/Aug/11
Ok Danimal, I wasn't aware sorry. I don't think Wheeler is 5' 8" because that means Coleman is 5' 8.5" and Cutler 5' 6.25" - 5' 6.5". Coleman has 0.5" MAX on Wheeler in the 1999 Mr O Vid, and Coleman has an easy 2" MIN on Cutler in the 2001 Mr O Vid.

I'm thinking: 5' 7.5" Cutler, 5' 9.5" Coleman, 5' 9" Wheeler. It could just as easily be 5' 7" Cutler, 5' 9" Coleman and 5' 8.5" Wheeler though.
Legend said on 26/Aug/11
Guys,

Flex wheeler has been listed at 5'8 before. He's also mentioned in one article I read a couple of days ago as "almost 5'8". So I wouldn't be surprised if Flex's real height was 5'8.
Danimal said on 25/Aug/11
Physics Enemy on Ronnie Coleman
Sorry Legend that's also the vid you linked us to. But yes, Flex Wheeler's lowest listing was 5' 9".

Actually, I have seen him listed as low as 5'8" and as high as 5'10.5". Collected Muscle and Fitness and Flex magazines since 1981.
Physics Enemy said on 25/Aug/11
How is Flex Wheeler inflated at 5' 9" Legend? That's his LOWEST listing, he's also listed 5' 10" in MANY competitions/events. He's never ever been listed 5' 8" ... show me proof? I've never seen it.

I agree Ronnie is only 0.5" taller than Flex, granted. But Wheeler is at least 5' 9" from what I gather, he could be 5' 9" and change too. That may explain the 5' 9" and 5' 10" listings.
Legend said on 24/Aug/11
@Vegas

You really know how to evade a question don't you? Let me add it up for you then:

Flex wheeler is listed at an inflated 5'9 and has been listed as low as 5'8. Ronnie Coleman is not even one inch taller than him in the video where they are both barefoot. Therefore, Ronnie Coleman is not even 5'9.5...
Physics Enemy said on 24/Aug/11
Sorry Legend that's also the vid you linked us to. But yes, Flex Wheeler's lowest listing was 5' 9". That would make Ronnie 177 cm MAX though. If Wheeler was 5' 9" and change (he was listed higher than 5' 9" too) then Ronnie is a legit 5' 10".

However; the 2001 Olympia vid with Coleman and Cutler has Coleman much taller than Cutler. Cutler looked 2.5" shorter in that vid to me. Here it is: Click Here

Based on this vid where they are clearly side by side, Cutler can't be anything over 5' 8" and likely 5' 7.5". They're barefoot side by side. People can't say that's a 1.5" difference. Or can they?
Physics Enemy said on 24/Aug/11
Legend, where on earth did you get the idea that Flex Wheeler is 'not even 5' 8"'? The lowest he was ever listed at was 5' 9" and he's been listed up to 5' 10". Ronnie is marginally taller than Flex Wheeler; check out the vid where the medals are about to be awarded in the 1999 Olympia. They're standing tall, side by side. Ronnie has Flex by 0.5".

@Vegas

What do you have to say about the video?
___________

why are you asking me?? i haven't met coleman or at any point given an estimation for him recently, the only thing we know for sure with ronnie is his arm size at peak, which seemed to get me alot of heat, he certainly looks shorter next to paul wight than i do, wheeler is listed 5'9 (i can't say i know much about his height) and the close up shots in that video the camera angle favours wheeler alot (look at the green/white/orange stripes on the wall e.g), in the long shots which are level coleman is easily an inch taller, if we knew wheelers exact barefoot measurement then that that video would be of more value

I made a big mistake. This guy can't be 5'10. Look at him in this clip next to not even 5'8 Flex Wheeler: Click Here
johno said on 15/Aug/11
- Mamun upon recently inspecting your recent pictures with celebrities where you have lessened your hair, i have realised the top of your head is higher then i thought. Thus the difference between you and ronnie would be about 1.5inches

Mamun 5'8
ronnie 5'9.5
Legend said on 14/Aug/11
Ronnie looks 5'10 if Mamun is 5'8. One of a few accurate listings.
Physics Enemy said on 2/Aug/11
Accounting for Mamum's hair, Ronnie's posture and the fact Mamun is 5' 8.25" ... then Ronnie is probably 179 cm.
Alex said on 31/Jul/11
The more I look at the picture with Ronnie and Mamun I think Ronnie is more like 5'9 1/2 than 5'10.
Radek said on 29/Jul/11
He looks 5 feet 9.5 , could be 5 feet 10' with good posture.

I doubt he ever was 5'11 as some sources claim. And I doubt bodybuilding makes you drop height, instead its back injuries which can make u end up standing not so straight up anymore and thus looking a little shorter than if u standed up properly.

the day we met him in NY it was about lunchtime and measured a good 6 foot and a few mm, we went out for a few hours to the central park and then around 6pm measured again and maybe he was a mm or so less, but still 6 foot, even taking the 2mm off for the stadiometer error.

Alex said on 15/Jul/11
Mamun, looking at the picture of me and you compared to you and Ronnie isn't the best to judge since we are barefoot in our pic. It can appear me and Ronnie are closer in height kinda but I think I'd have over 2 inches on him.
Alex said on 15/Jul/11
Wow I seen it all on here now. Its one thing to downgrade the celebs or people who we haven't seen proof of measurement of but I was measured at slightly over 6'0 by Rob midday and I have been measured at 6'0 1/4 at the doctors in the last few years too so to state I am 5'11.5 MAX is absurd.

fact this, fact that, like i said my guinness book of records from 1982 said he had 56cm arms at a weight of 235lb, like in other forms of entertainment, in bodybuilding the numbers are exagerrated greatly and you as a major fan should be well aware of this, you don't believe ronnie and jays height listings e.g so why do you think other numbers are legit?? exaggerating arm/chest size in bb is as common as exaggerating penis size in porn, every second male porn claims 10 inches :D

260lb or 290lb arnie didn't have arms nearly an inch bigger than a 2004 ronnie coleman

--

Danimal is right and you deserve the ridicule on this one. Cutting water weight and gearing up for a contest takes inches off these bodybuilders measurements believe me. In the off season when he was bulking Arnold definitely had 21/22.

Ronnie looks like he was dehydrating as well when his were measured at 21.5 in Japan.

He looks silly. Bodybuilders are so disproportioned nowadays. It's become a size contest, that's all. Steve Reeves had the perfect physique. If Reeves would have gone by today's proportions at his height, he would have weighed 350 pounds. How long before Mr.Coleman drops of a massive heart attack due to the steroids, hgh, hcg, insulin, synthol, diuretics, and whatever else bodybuilders are taking now. Not to mention your body holding 100 pounds in excess. Competitive bodybuilders are no role models-they are some of the unhealthiest and obsessive compulsive people out there. To all the bb's who might get offended by this-not you though...
Alex said on 25/Jan/11
For someone 5'9 or 5'10 to weigh as much and be as big as Coleman is crazy. 320-330lbs offeason is crazy and to be shredded at 290lbs at that height is even more crazy. At 5'10 the biggest I think someone should really be is like 225-230lbs without looking too big.

It is very exhausting. :) For a normal man his height, when he stretches as tall as possible (for example, when he is measured) and when he stands in a normal situation, differ for near 2cm. Verified on myself. But for a HEAVY man, like Ronnie, the real height and the "standing height" may differ more. For example, for 5cm. So we should add the 3cm handicap to the 177cm height, which is deduced from the photo. And so we get the real height of 180cm (or 5ft 11).

Look at Rob´s photo with Tyson, Rob and Supermun are both 5´8-5´8,25 and when you compare both photos you´ll see a difference, look at the eye-levels in both photos, if tyson is 5´10 Coleman is only 5´9.

How many times does it need to be said? Ronnie is leaning also he is bald while 'Supermun gets a few MM's from his hair. Also 'Mun may be closer to the camera.

Mamun, do you lift weights? You seem to 'hold your own' size wise next to bodybuilders.

Ronnie is 5'11. He doesnt look that tall because he is 280+ shredded competition, and over 300 lbs offseason.. Yeah he isnt strong, rolls eyes... Yeah 800 lb deadlift x 2 & 800 lb squat x 2, all done prior to his contest. Ronnie does half reps on the bench to hit the pecs. It is far more difficult than locking out, using your triceps.. Ronnie can dumbell press 200lb dumbells for like 8 or so. He barbell rows over 500lbs for reps.. Leg press 2300.. Front squats a lot. He is a bodybuilder, not a powerlifter. Get off his nuts. He he trained for powerlifting. He would probably be one of the strongest guys ever.. He isnt far off the best guys strength levels. And he is a bodybuilder. you people have no lives talking about heights. o lord

GREAT FIND!!!! Goes to show that MANY of the top bodybuilders lie about their height.

John said on 6/Apr/09
You can be 10 feet tall and you'll never be as famous and rich as Ronnie Coleman, for what it's worth. Congrats on being tall, though. It's a great achievement.

He is the best bodybuilder of all time, one of the hardest working, and clearly had a rare genetic ability to get bigger than other pros who used similar amounts of performance enhancing aides (AAS, IGF-1, HGH, NO-XPLODE, etc.). Anyone who wins the highest achievement in their respective field 8 times consecutively is an amazing athlete, drugs nor not. But he is retired, and despite what he says in order to maintain interest in his name (i.e. that he's returning to competing), he's unlikely ever to do so again. 1) The nerve damage in his left tricep, left lat and left thigh would prevent him from winning, and 2) he has his health to think about. Anyone who's seen "Relentless" and "Invincible" know that, at the very least, he takes 5-6 prescription drugs A DAY and over 20 over-the-counter medications just to be able to get up and get through the day. He knows it's time to hang up his training boots and go back to living like a normal person, at an normal weight (220 or less, given his size), without the stress and strain of an IFBB pro's competition schedule. Also, he's 5'10" irl, not 5'11". His own niece told me.

Matt,
To prevent further embarrassment for you, this is the photo that people were referring to Click Here
Matt said on 30/Mar/09
Every person who commented that he looks to have lost weight should promptly punch his or her self in the face immediately, especially the guy who said he looks 215 (Are you kidding me?). Ronnie looks the near 300lbs that he is in this picture. Also, we can't see footwear in this picture, so I'm not convinced that we can conclude a 2 inch natural difference here.
johnny82 said on 17/Mar/09
ronnie looks just under 5'10 in that pic with mamun, about 5'9 and 1/2, although he doesn't look 1 and 1/2 inches taller then mamun.
Alex said on 2/Mar/09
Wait, thats a recent picture of how Ronnie looks now? Damn he has lost weight.
Gene Frisco said on 16/Feb/09
If he stands up perfectly straight 5'10 seems right but not a centimeter more. Can indeed apear around 5'9.5 or 5'9.75 more than 5'11.
Clay said on 13/Feb/09
Ronnie is CLEARLY 2 inches taller you have envision him standing upright. Plus dont forget he is bald while 'Supermun has hair.
Sammy said on 12/Feb/09
Just because some one is heavy or extremley muscular like Ronnie, does not mean that they are always going to apear shorter than their supposed height, in some cases yes being overweight or very broad can make someone apear shorter but not here, Ronnie is very well muscled I cant belive how large his arms arm amazing but you can clearly see he is no where near 5'11, does not even seem 5'10 in this photo he looks about 5'9.75 at most here. Look at the tops of their heads there is not much of a height difference and remember Ron is so muscular that his shoulder and neck are so large and apear higher than most people his height.
supermanfan380 said on 12/Feb/09
I'd give Ronnie about 5'10" or 5'11'. depends on posture and time of day. first hour or two of the day, about 5'11", later on around 5'10". He is close to what his listed height is. When I met him I did not think "wow he is shorter than I expected, he was about right what I thought he would look like. He was wide houses though. Glad to see he lost some of the size since he stopped competing. that extra weight alone must have been hard on him. He looks healthier at a lighter weight.
damien said on 11/Feb/09
he is still over 300 lbs... he is still training, thats just a bad angle pic, you people are nuts... he is competing this year again :)

This is a recent photo of Ronnie with his new wife. As you can see, he has clearly stopped using steroids and looks no bigger than 225-230lbs, tops. Yes, he is human after all; yes, all those giant muscles came out of small glass bottles.

More like 215 pounds there.

Do you live with him? Are you his cousin? Unless you're his best friend Brian, or one of his nieces/daughters, you don't know what the hell you're talking about, "u mad?". He takes 4-5 months off gear, especially now that he's retired, and drops to the low 240s. He hasn't been over 300 since 06 when he did his last Olympia. And he's not 5'11", get off his nuts and get a life.
U mAD? said on 18/Jan/09
his 5'll, he gets over 300 lbs in the off season, he was 296lbs shredded competition weight. man he is 5'11, get over it you freaks, ronnie isnt even standing up straight in this pic.
Joey said on 7/Jan/09
Met him. We were both wearing Air Jordans, different model but same thickness of sole, and he was exactly 2 inches taller than me. I'm 5'8". He's not 5'11", much like Arnold Schwarzenegger wasn't 6'2" but really just 6'0". He looks tall in his videos for 3 reasons: 1) Mitsuro Okabe films him while crouched, or while holding the camera at waist-height, so the viewer sees him from the lower back up, giving him the appearance of a mountain; 2) He has very long arms for a man of his height, and therefore doesn't look as stubby as Jay Cutler or Dexter Jackson; 3) photos of him are often taken from a distance, giving the illusion that he's actually taller due to the massive area he occupies. I once met him off-season, when he was (by his own admission) off steroids/GH, and he was considerably smaller - maybe 250lbs instead of his usual 325. He also didn't look very tall.
Hugh said on 31/Dec/08
A little freak. I hope Jay Cutler and Ronnie Coleman choke on the steroids they take. They have officially ruined what was once a great industry. I heard he's very ignorant aswell.

Ronnie looks really tall but hes only 5 11
