George Farah discusses Big Ramy's constant switching of coaches, his conditioning, and his mentality.
It's been a while since we've seen Big Ramy on a major competition stage. The last time we saw him at Mr. Olympia he placed at a disappointing 6th. That was in 2018. He was unable to compete at the Mr. Olympia in 2019 due to an injury that left him unable to prepare for the event in time. Now we are just over two weeks away from the Arnold Classic, the first big competition Ramy will be competing in in over a year. What can we expect and will it show promise for his showing at the Mr. Olympia later this year? In our latest GI Exclusive, George Farah discusses the main reason why Big Ramy has issues winning the Mr. Olympia.
George Farah believes that Big Ramy is a Mr. Olympia champion... he just needs to come in on point to actually realize that potential. Ramy's conditioning has long been a criticism of the talented bodybuilder. It's the number one reason people believe he hasn't yet been able to win the Mr. Olympia competition. But in our conversation with George Farah, he explains that Ramy's conditioning isn't the real issue per se.
Yes, Big Ramy has often had lackluster conditioning when he steps onto the Mr. Olympia stage. But according to Farah, that's not because Ramy is failing on his conditioning. It's because of his mentality. Farah shares a story of when he was training Ramy and saw him just hours before a competition. He was shredded and in incredible conditioning. But then a mishap occured that pulled Farah away from back stage - unable to return. When Big Ramy stepped out to compete, his conditioning was suddenly completely off.
George doesn't know what exactly happened - but he believes the only thing that could have caused such a sudden change in his physique was a change in his mindset. Big Ramy gets too deep into his own head moments before competing and it causes him to fade.
Perhaps he just needs the right coaching team to make him feel mentally prepared. Big Ramy has switched coaches a few times throughout his career - including a controversial split from the Camel Crew after his 2018 showing at the Olympia. We asked George Farah his thoughts on that. Farah thinks that loyalty shouldn't have a place in a coach/bodybuilder relationship. Big Ramy should find the coach that works for him - and he hopes that the perfect fit comes soon.
As Goerge Farah said at the beginning - Big Ramy has all of the right tools to become a Mr. Olympia champion. He just needs to get in the zone, get in the right shape, and keep it that way on the night of the competition. Perhaps the 2020 version of Big Ramy will finally find that perfect combination. The Arnold Classic will be our first chance to see if he's going in the right direction.
Check out George Farah's complete breakdown of Big Ramy in our latest GI Exclusive interview above!

Ramy loses because judges look at the wrong parameters. Put a photo of Big Ramy and Bonac next to each other and show the non body building public and ask them who they think won the Arnold and they will be absolutely shocked it was Bonac.

Ramy needs to look up symmetry and conditioning. Like seriously, does he see nothing wrong with his overall silhouette?

Ramy does not have the desire for an O. That comes from within.Have you ever seen him look like he enjoys the preparation of competing? Does he seem happy or comfortable on stage with the confidence of a champion. His proportions are not those close to winning an O anymore. He’s going backwards folks. As for his condition he looks great 10 weeks out. 10 weeks later he shows up 7 weeks out.

First of all big Ramy is out of proportion. He either comes in big or conditioned but never both at the same time.

Ramy needs the mindset of dorian, in contest winning shape four weeks out and heavy, full, but that wasn't enough for dorian he just didn't want to be in winning shape he wanted to be in even better shape, that's why he'd sacrifice another 15lbs and go Down to that dry super grainy look, then blow everyone away, Ramy needs to do the same.

I dont understand why you guys always photoshop the bodybuilders for clicks, bodybuilders who actually put in the time in to earn their physiques yet you make them look foolish by blowing up their proportions.

George seems like a real good guy and he likes to talk about himself a lot but I sat through 10 minutes without him answering the question about Ramy not winning. He has to be more specific than saying Ramy has to come in shape and has enough voltage in his body to light up a city. George, we already know you love everybody and don't hold grudges but please stick to the subject.

Ramy was really really close at the Arnold. His quads are ridiculous. IMO, that was the best he’s looked. He just needs to nail the conditioning, which exposed him in the back poses...But he was very close this year. Can’t wait to see him at the Olympia.

Ramy don’t have aesthetic. He need to stop growing the thigh. Need to proportion the limbs.

Start at 7:29 according to George: 'we all carry immense energy in our body (up to 700 trillion volts) and we can heal everything and do anything and so, now on the other side with a wrong mentality and state of mind you can mess everything up, so, you can be ready ......and shredded (for a show), but, if people talk to you and stuff and blah blah...... it's state of mind, if mind is not 100% - this has been his demon. He needs a proper state of mind.' So to win an Olympia - Ramy, on top of his coaching team needs to hire a sports psychologist and a bodyguard to keep his mind right and other people away from him and from playing with his head, respectively.

I feel Big Ramy is phenomenal & a specimen. I feel they robbed Big Ramy at least 2 Olympia platings, where he could have easily beaten Phil Heath. The same thing that happen to Kai Green is happening to Big Ramy. The Olympia is just not for him. He can make more money from starting his own nutrition company & endorsements he don't need to win the Olympia just like Kai Green is doing. I also think Ramy changes coaches to much stick to 1 good coach.

Ramy needs to stop training legs for at least two years so his physique can look more appealing. Until then, he won’t win jack shit.

“If you are a good leader, you want to make more great leaders” this right here is the philosophy all human beings should take! I really respect and give this man all the praise, because you can see the passion, the love and the respect in even the way he speaks. A true inspiration to any person, I want to be a leader not a boss and this interview is the epitome of that
