    Mamdouh 'Big Ramy' Elssbiay is an Egyptian-born Kuwaiti.

    Who else? I'm sure it's not a short list.

    Are you kidding here? Most of the forerunners of who were seriously pushing physical culture, nutrition, and bodybuilding as we know it at the turn of the century, aside from Jewish Joe Weider, were white: Bernard McFadden, George Eiferman, George Hackenschmidt, Charles Atlas, Jack Lalanne, and so on.

    There have been quite a few great Middle Eastern and Arab bodybuilders though, with one being Mr. Olympia, Samir Bannout.

    Pardon my language then. Instead of going with "quite a few", we'll go with many.

    But they didn't put bodybuilding on the map.

    Google search string origins of bodybuilding reveals...

    The roots of bodybuilding go all the way back to ancient Greece. It was the athletes of ancient Greece who used to train in the gymnasiums (Greek for "naked place"); however, they did not use resistance training as a form of body modification but rather a means to improve at the sport they participated in.

    The most notable of such athletes was Olympic wrestling champion Milo of Croton who reportedly would carry a calf on his back every day until it became a bull, thus demonstrating progressive resistance as a means of developing strength.

    The "Grecian Ideal" would also go on to influence modern day bodybuilding as the aesthetic standard that modern bodybuilders would aim to achieve.

    It was in 11th century India that bodybuilding as we know it first arrived on the scene. It was back then the Indians would use primitive dumbbell weights carved from stone for the sole purpose of getting bigger and stronger, it is also reported that by the 16th century weight lifting had become a national past time in India.

    Farnese Hercules

    The Farnese Hercules is an ancient statue of Hercules, probably an enlarged copy made in the early third century AD and signed by Glykon, who is otherwise unknown; the name is Greek but he may have worked in Rome.
