Anyone ever think itís weird how bodybuilders are the only athletes who stop their career because they have kids? I donít see nba or nfl players ever retiring because of kids. Maybe itís the lack of money in bodybuilding

Ronnie is also the only mr Olympia ever to have kids when he won. BB is a very selfish sport and itís almost impossible to compete at that level and also be a contributing father

But yes, I agree that is difficult. I have never even come close to competing at their level, but I have competed, owned a business with 73 people relying on me to keep it busy all while having a family. Let me tell you, IT WAS TOUGH. I was up at 2am every morning to train before work, then went and had a 10-14 hour work day (I took at least an hour nap daily), came home and relieved my daughters mom of mom duties then finally be in bed by 10 to do it all over again 7 days a week for 6 years. I loved every second of it but it was fucking tough

Being a father is hard enough all on its own, add to that competitive bb'ing... that is a challenging dynamic, to be excellent at both require having polar opposite qualities ... Ronnie Coleman is a man with a lot of heart. I'm sure there are others who do well at both too... @Shrek

Ben also wasnít placing any where near as well as Ronnie or Shawn, itís probably a lot harder to continue if you realize youíll never get to that level, or maybe he just lost his passion for it
