Big Ramy 5 Weeks Out From 2020 Olympia
As we get closer and closer to the 2020 Mr. Olympia, it is evident that this will be an Olympia unlike any we have seen before. We just learned that the entire Mr. Olympia has now been moved to Orlando, Florida. This move was precipitated by the fact that new restrictions were being imposed in Nevada, that would limit the audience attendance if the event were to take place in Las Vegas as usual.
Obviously, Big Ramy has not let any of the concerns over Covid restrictions slow down the progress he has been making, in preparation for stepping on the Olympia stage this year. Ramy took to Instagram a few days ago, to address concerns from those commenting on how his arms didn’t have enough veins in the videos he had been posting. It looks to us like we may be seeing an all-new Big Ramy. He looks to be bringing that “mass-monster” look that we have come to know and love about the guy, but at 5-weeks out already bringing the conditioning that it takes to be a solid contender. As we can see in the video he shared of his mandatory poses, Big Ramy has really been putting in work, as he prepares for this year’s competition.
Over the past few weeks, it seems that much of the bodybuilding community has been divided as to whether they support the decision regarding Big Ramy getting a special invitation to the 2020 Olympia, without actually qualifying through traditional means. Whether you agree or not with how he earned the invitation to the big show, it is hard to argue that he is one of the most exciting athletes to step on the Mr. Olympia stage.
It is often mentioned that one of the biggest factors that holds Ramy back from taking the top spot, is his lack of conditioning on stage. Well, from this sneak peek that he has given us at 5 weeks out, it appears that he is right on track to bring the conditioning it takes to be a stand out when it comes time to judge the athletes on stage. It will be exciting to see how his physique stacks up this year to the likes of Phil Heath and the defending champion Brandon Curry.
