Mamdouh Mohammed Hassan Elssbiay alias Big Ramy has achieved great success in a very short period of time. He made his pro-bodybuilding debut in 2013 and in 7 years he made his mark as Mr. Olympia (2020). For him, “Winter has just started.”
For those who don’t know, the muscle monster made his professional debut in 2013 with the New York Pro Championship. To participate in this professional competition, he won the Kuwait Amateur Olympia in 2012, which earned him a professional card. But other than that basic stuff, not many people would know about life as a mass monster before they became Ramy.
Big Ramy was born on September 16, 1984 in the resort town of Baltim, in the governorate of Kafr el-Sheikh in Egypt, on the Nile Delta. His father was a fisherman and the same was practiced by Ramy and his brothers. But what set him apart from his siblings was his passion for bodybuilding.
After finishing the fishing job, our Mr. Olympia used to train hard on his body. In Kuwait, in an area known as Jabriya, there is one of the most popular gyms from The Oxygen Gym chains. As most pro bodybuilding enthusiasts would be aware that the gym in particular is one of the most famous and has seen a rise of several stars. And yes, it changed Ramy’s life too (indirectly though).
Several big guns like Dennis James, Dennis Wolf were somewhere associated with Oxygen Gym. As Ramy has always been interested in this field, he applied for the position of trainer at Jabriya. He found a job, but it was in a different region. Somehow, Bader Boodai, the owner of the channel, spotted the future muscle monster in Ramy and offered him a job at a store in Jabriya. At the same time, Bader informed Dennis James of Ramy’s potential. Impressed with the passion and muscle growth, James took care of Ramy. And the rest is history!
