Ramon Dino was born in February 9, 1995 in Acre, Brazil, however he was raised in Portugal. Ramon does not share much regarding his family life. He completed his basic education at a local private school in his hometown, but he did not attend further education as he had his eye on the prize and wanted to pursue bodybuilding professionally. Clearly that worked out, as he is one of the most mentioned names in the industry right now.

Ramon’s Competition History

Ramon Dino is still relatively a fresh face on the bodybuilding scene. His professional competitive career started in 2018, at the Olympia Amateur Brazil, at which he earned his IFBB Pro Card.

During the years of 2019 and 2020, Ramon was not competing. The reason for his absence is unknown, but he made a remarkable return to the stage in 2021.

Ramon came in 2nd place at the 2021 Europa Pro, then earned himself a 5th place spot on the Olympia stage that same year. He finished the 2021 year out at the Muscle Contest Brazil, taking first place.

Training

Ramon Dino’s training is something that is truly classic. He believes in moving massive weights, more volume, and less rest between sets. However, he also is a firm believer in utilizing compound movements like squats, the barbell bench press, and deadlifts. These are movements that many bodybuilders tend to leave out of their training regimens nowadays.

Ramon obviously still utilizes the isolation exercises to fine tune the muscular detail of his body. He knows that when he is on stage, the judges are looking at every single detail on his body, and he has to be ready for that.

When it comes to cardio, Ramon focuses more on this in the on-season rather than the off-season. During the off-season he is focused mainly on getting in calories and packing on muscle mass, so cardio is not used as much. However, in the on-season, Ramon is trying to get as shredded as possible while keeping his muscle mass.

Recovery is a huge part of the growing process when it comes to bodybuilding, especially for Ramon Dino. He knows that during sleep, growth hormone levels dramatically improve, leading to more muscle mass and less fat.

Nutrition

Ramon is an avid meal prep kind of guy. Competing is a full time job, and the diet is part of that job, and life can get busy. So, Ramon likes to have his meals prepped and ready to go, as it makes life that much easier. When he travels, Ramon will order a meal prep service or eat out at a healthy place.
