Hold your breath for this one, we finally get Ronnie's take on his upset loss at the controversial 2006 Olympia battle with Jay Cutler. In a different angle, rising superstar and fellow BSN athlete Brandon Curry weighs in on the judgment. For a light afternoon workout, a purple tights-clad Ronnie hits the treadmill then some dumbbell presses.
While Brandon's very forthcoming about his opportunities to improve his legs, it's all arms in the gym as he attacks v-bar pushdowns, hybrid high cable curls, skull crushers, and overhead cable curls.
Ronnie colorfully recollects a grueling show tour in Europe during his prime in which Kevin Levrone revealed his secretive water shedding technique. A close up camera shot candidly captures a sledgehammer leg session. When you do what you love for a living, finding parity in life becomes simple.

At a BSN shoot, he's not too impressed by an overly foamy product, and this former Denny's employee proceeds to eat a lunch of microwaved steak while reminiscing on working security at the '90 Olympia.
Brandon lets the cat out of the bag on his diet and supplements, and not surprisingly his keys to success are increasing calories and carb cycling. Watch as he grinds through some nasty t-bar rows, wild cable rope variations, and heavy underhand cable pulldowns.

No good hardcore leg workout is without parking lot lunges in the boiling sun.
This soft spoken Pro gives you an inside look at the techniques and timing necessary for preparing for a pro level competition. Brandon tears up shoulders today with one-arm smith machine rows, rear delt raises, incline hammer press and more. Check out his modified upright rows for maximum growth.
