I had the opportunity to interview IFBB Pro Mamdouh Elssbiay in Oxygen Gym, Kuwait. Big Ramy's story is amazing. Starting with a humble beginning as a fisherman, Ramy was lured to the gym during his off hours. Tired and dirty, Ramy would go home, shower, change, down some fod and drink and then head to the gym.
His story may be a common bodybuilder story or a juxtaposition of a bodybuilder. Either way, Ramy has the same issues as his counterparts across the world: balancing family and bodybuilding, workouts, cardio and food.
Watch and listen. As we get closer to the 2013 Mr Olympia, we will bring you closer with Big Ramy and you will discover what I did. Bodybuilding is a common language throughout the world. And those that love it and breathe it will understand what is driving this humble man into the biggest competition of his life.
