BIG RAMY Teams Up with GAT!

Big Ramy Teams Up With GAT

-- German American Technologies (GAT), maker of the immensely popular and clinically studied NITRAFLEX® pre-workout, today proudly announces the signing of IFBB professional bodybuilder Mamdouh “Big Ramy” Elssbiay.

In what may be a world record for gaining muscle, Big Ramy achieved celebrity status amongst bodybuilding fans and workout enthusiasts after gaining more than 100lbs (36 kg) of lean muscle mass with just three years of training. Standing 5’ 9” (175 cm), Big Ramy currently tops the scales at an eye-popping 311 lbs (141 kg). In November 2012, the 28-year-old Egyptian athlete won the overall title at the 2012 Amateur Olympia and an invitation to compete in the 2013 Mr. Olympia contest.  Later in May of this year Big Ramy, in his first professional event, won the coveted IFBB New York Pro.

Whether this contributed to his death is unclear at this time.

What if Arnold Schwarzenegger Was At His Peak Today?

adsfadWhat if Arnold Schwarzenegger Was At His Peak Today?
By Geoff Roberts


As we rapidly approach the 2013 Mr. Olympia contest I cannot help but ponder something I have been discussing with other bodybuilding fans for years. How would Arnold Schwarzenegger do at this year’s Mr. Olympia contest or in modern times in general, assuming he was born in the mid-1980s? This would put the Austrian Oak in his bodybuilding prime going into this year’s show!

The Effects of NSAIDs on Muscle Growth

musclekidThe Effects of NSAIDs on Muscle Growth

Each and every time we head for a workout (gym or otherwise), we want to make improvements.  I don't know too many people working out who aren't trying on some level to get better, whether it be a better physique, better health or better performance in a sport.  Better muscle = Better physique, better health and better performance!  Therefore, at least some of your workout time is dedicated to developing muscle, even if you don't think so.
