Biography

Fitness Beginnings

Ramona Valerie Alb says she has always been a sports “freak.” As a child, she played with her friends and classmates in school, and was highly competitive in every activity she took part in.

This competitive ‘thirst’ didn’t diminish as Ramona became an adult. It, in fact, grew stronger over the years.

Then, one day, Ramona saw a workout video by an IFBB Pro Regiane Da Silva Botthof, and this is when she gained interest in fitness.

Ramona didn’t think much about it at first, she started working out and planning her diet soon after seeing the workout video.

Bikini Competitions

In April 2010, just five months after she started training. Ramona appeared in her first ever bikini competition – the Fibo Power and Beauty. To her own surprise, she came in 2nd place that day at the show.

Proving to herself she had what it took to become successful in the sport. Ramona soon stepped up to even bigger challenges. Such as competing at top fitness shows in Germany, and beyond.

Sucess on the Bikini Stage

By 2012, Ramona had an incredible 18 competitions under her belt.

In just two years of competing, she made a string of impressive finishes. Such us the 1st place at the 2010 Rhein Neckarpokal, 1st place at the Bikini and Catwalk Fashion Show in Miami, and the victory at the 2012 German Bikini Championships.

With her strong desire to be the best, and her chiseled physique, Ramona continues to set new records in her career of fitness and competing.

Training

Rest Between the Sets

Ramona incorporates a lot of supersets and drop sets in her workout. This means her rest between each set is very low.

Even when she doesn’t do supersets, Ramona will rest for up to one minute. As Ramona likes to say; “I am always doing something.”

Listening to Music While Training

Ramona says music is a “must-have” for her training sessions. It gives her an edge during difficult workouts when she needs to push those last few reps.

She listens to all types of music, but her favorite is metal for heavy exercises like squats.

Ramona Valerie Alb’s Top 3 Tips for Staying Fit

  • “Never give up and stay focused on where you want to be.”
  • “If you feel great after your workout well your workout wasn’t that great hehe”
  • “Believe in yourself and in deep squats, yup! Real deep!”

Nutrition

Ramona’s diet throughout the off-season is fairly standard. She sticks to whole foods, and a treat here and there, to add healthy muscle mass onto her frame.

As for the cutting phase, it’s an entirely different story. In the last few weeks before a contest, when Ramona needs to shed those last few pounds of body fat. She’ll have her macros weighed out like this;

  • 84 grams of protein
  • 36 grams of carbs
  • 22 grams of fat
  • 709 calories in total

As Ramona says, this is “killer crazy”, but she only eats like this in the last 14-28 days before the contest. Maintaining this diet for longer is almost impossible, as it would be dangerous for her health.

Idols and Influences

Staying Motivated

Ramona doesn’t find it hard to stay motivated on her fitness journey. She just reminds herself that if she was to stop, she would no longer have her awesome physique.

She also draws motivation to train from other IFBB bikini competitors. Such as Larissa Reis and Regiane Da Silva Botthof.

Seeing their results pushes Ramona to train even harder so she could bring her own greatest physique to the stage.
