“Big Ramy” A Rising Star

Mamdouh Elssbiay, or “Big Ramy,” is the biggest bodybuilder in the game. In fact, he’s the biggest competitor to ever compete on the Mr. Olympia stage! Since hitting the scene in 2012, the entire bodybuilding world has been put on notice.  Weighing in at an astonishing 316lbs. people have speculated on the future of such a promising “super-freak.”

Could he be the one to finally take down Phil “The Gift” Heath? It seemed only a matter of time. With each passing year Big Ramy has shown remarkable improvement. It’s incredible to think, he’s only been lifting for five years at this point.

Nope that’s not a mistake. Big Ramy started lifting in 2010…

It came as a shock then, when photos following the 2015 Mr. Olympia surfaced. Showing Big Ramy significantly smaller than before, it appeared he had “lost all his gains.” Forums exploded with whispers and activity as people questioned what had happened to the fifth place Mr. Olympia finisher.

  The News

Apparently, Mamdouh Elssbiay took a 48 day vacation from lifting altogether. In an effort to rejuvenate, he took a 7 week break in order for his body to have some time to recover.

Bodybuilding is a brutal sport, and it’s well understood just how many substances some competitors run for contests, let alone year-round.

A significant period of time, spent away from the gym, will likely help prolong Big Ramy’s career. It will take a few more years for him to reach the level of muscle maturity and detail he needs to push Phil Heath. So why risk it? Ramy has a promising future. There’s no reason to push past the limitations of his body. We all have a breaking point, and it’s likely he’ll come back bigger and better than ever when he returns. Big Ramy has a long successful career to look forward to. He only just turned 31.

One of Landin’s fondest memories was his youth baseball team narrowly missing out on the opportunity to play in the Little League World Series Final. Unfortunately, during high school Landin was forced to forget his originally preferred sports as a freak basketball injury nearly ended his life. All prospects for Division I sports scholarships evaporated. Despite this set back, Landin focused his energies in new modes, becoming an All-State musician, avid sports journalist and by"Bodybuilding" to stimulate and heal his body. In an effort to assist others, Landin is currently pursuing Pre-Medical, Dosimetry and Sports Medicine degrees.
