  • What is going on with Ramy's back?

    I'm surprised that nobody has brought this up. It must be a posing difference, right? But why did he change it? Maybe some kind of mobility issue?

    Yes, right lat appears somewhat damaged, there also appears to be more lack muscle in the lower back. And he's definitely not striking the pose on that shot

      I think Ramy is looking less aesthetic in general. With his bulk I see it that he needs his muscle separation to be at his best or he looks a bit unrefined.

      Ramy can be beaten if Brandon gets really hard.

        Ramys back could be solved easily in my opinion. He has a lack of center channel thickness from trap to erectors that are tell tale sign of a lack of deadlifting and low barbell movements. It lines up with the training videos I have seen of him where he uses machines almost exclusively.

        As it sits right now he seems to have a have a focus in high row and lat work

            I noticed that too but I thought it was the lighting or stage background

                    I see nothing wrong with his back tbh. Let's face it, Ramy is unbeatable now

                      that's the Chad Nichols special, ruined Ronnie, ruined Dennis wolf and now he's ruining Ramy.
                      and yes there's a bunch of names I left out, but noone has ever looked better with Chad, he just takes on Clients that already have insane genetics.

                        just to add to that the Chad Nichols special involves Removing separation, fine details and adding bloat.

                            Maybe? But , it's more likely due to :
                            1. basic genetic shape and separation
                            2. being 100% dialed in vs slightly less defined in 2021

                            His basic muscle mass looks similar in recent years and it all comes down to how shredded he gets.
                            Plus, some pros just lack the genetic back muscle separation , like Branch Warren, unless he came in 100% shredded.

                            Every Mr Olympia has some weakness with plenty of strengths.
                            For example, Phil Heath had incredible back separation but lacked shoulder girdle width.
                            Rammy is a "vice versa" example.

                              Bingo.

                              Lighting differences combined with a slightly less ripped condition with a few more years of wear & tear account for this trivial difference.
                              FYI, every champ looks a little different over the years in the same pose on different stages.
