MOE ELMOUSSAWI

HE WAS ONE OF THE BEST-ARMED MEN IN THE 2008 AND 2009 OLYMPIAS

RETRO

PAVEL YTHJALL

Moe Elmoussawi liked high reps—did he ever! For a while he cranked out 1,000 per body part in sets of 50 to 100. The routine below was the one he used before placing ninth in the 2008 Olympia—his career high point—and it’s a little less of an endurance test (he alternated it with a moderate-volume workout). Still, its tally of 625 reps is about four times what most bodybuilders do in a biceps routine. The mega reps didn’t transform all of the 175-cm Lebanesenative into a Goliath, but his arms were two of the best in every contest he entered, including the 2008 and 2009 Olympias. Though he cracked the top 10 in both of those appearances, ahead of several legends, he never won a pro show over his 12-show, five-year career. (He was third in the 2008 Ironman Pro, won by Phil Heath, and second the next year.) He last competed in 2011. Settling in New Zealand after a stint in California, the entrepreneurial immigrant focused on expanding his sports nutrition business. Today, he’s also an IFBB official and promoter.
