BIG RAMY — FUTURE MR. OLYMPIA?
Recently in the realm of bodybuilding and fitness, there has been talk that Big Ramy ( Mamdouh Elssbiay) could be a future Mr.Olympian, possibly dethroning the current Mr.Olympia, Phil Heath. This is all because Big Ramy defeated Dexter “The Blade” Jackson at the Kuwait Pro show in 2016, which took place a few weeks after the 2016 Mr. Olympia. Why is this such a big deal ? Well, this is because Dexter Jackson placed number 2 right after Phil Heath in Mr. Olympia and this would be the first time Big Ramy would defeat Dexter at a Pro show to take first. A lot of the bodybuilding fans were baffled that Ramy beat Dexter because just a few weeks ago he wasn’t able to place higher than him at the Olympia. However, this change in placement shows the ifbb judges are considering Big Ramy as a serious contender for the title next year. Not only did Big Ramy defeat the likes of Dexter, in the following show after The Kuwait Pro he beat Shawn “Flexatron” Roden , who has placed higher than Dexter Jackson on many occasions.
According to bodybuilding reporter and enthusiast, Lui Marco, in order for Big Ramy to become Mr. Olympia and beat Phil Heath he would need to bring up his hamstring peak, develop a thicker lower back (Christmas tree), and he would need to bring out more glute and hamstring separation. However, this glute and hamstring separation has to deal with his overall conditioning. These are just some of Big Ramy’s weakness, but he also has very strong attributes. For example, his front double bicep pose and his legs dwarf everyone when they’re next to him. His overall size is something to be reckoned with. Hopefully in the years to come Big Ramy will eventually become Mr. Olympia.
