Mamdouh Elssbiay better known as Big Ramy is the current bodybuilding sensation. He weighs well over 300lbs-136 kg, which makes him one of the biggest IFBB pros out there. Last year, he finished 8th at the Mr. Olympia even though he looked much better than Jay Cutler who took 6th place. The placing of Jay Cutler was given for political reasons.
How did Big Ramy achieve such a freak factor physique in three years?
We are not going to talk about Ramy’s natty status because it’s obvious even to the population with a single digit IQ that Big Ramy is a walking chemical container.
However, what’s “surprising” about Big Ramy is the way he trains. In most of his videos, on YouTube, Big Ramy is training very calmly under the supervision of former IFBB pro Dennis James. Ramy relies on machines for 90% of his exercises. This alone makes us think that the freaky size of Big Ramy is due mainly to steroid and Synthol abuse.
Most people in the gym rarely grow from machine based routines. Furthermore, when your exercise program consists of so many movements, you can’t track what’s really going on, and programming becomes really hard. If you are not improving on your exercises, you can’t grow. And if you are doing too many exercises, you don’t have a focus.
An additional factor that is also very important for natural bodybuilders is work and recovery capacity. When you are natural, you don’t recover as fast as a roid bro.
Conclusion: Big Ramy is not big thanks to secret routines. His freaky size is a reality thanks to his genetics and effective drug and Synthol protocols.
