Ramon “Dino” Rocha Queiroz Biography: Bodybuilding Career, Workouts, and Height

In the eyes of many bodybuilding fans, the 2023 Classic Physique Olympia contest cemented Chris Bumstead as the G.O.A.T. after he claimed his fifth consecutive championship in Orlando, FL on Nov. 4. 

That contest also established runner-up Ramon “Dino” Rocha Queiroz as the clear number two superstar of the division. The 2023 Arnold Classic Physique champion appears to be the only man who can challenge “CBum” for the throne if Bumstead chooses to defend his title again in Las Vegas, NV at the 2024 Olympia Weekend

As of January 2024, Queiroz is focused on defending his Arnold title, which he will do on the weekend of Mar. 1-3, 2024 in Columbus, OH. As he trains for that show, his international fanbase is growing and wants to learn more about the man most popularly known as “Ramon Dino.” Here’s a glance at his life and career up to this point.

Early Life

Queiroz was born on Feb. 9, 1995, in Rio Branco, Acre, Brazil. He has been competing in bodybuilding shows since he turned 21 years old, when he first jumped into the South American amateur circuit. 

Ramon Dino became a pro at the 2018 Amateur Olympia Brazil at the age of 23, but he would not compete as a professional for three years after that.


The bodybuilding powerhouse stands at 5 feet, 11 inches tall, and he competes in the range of 225-230 pounds

He made his professional debut in 2021 at the Europa Pro, where he finished as the runner-up to Fabian Mayr. He won his first title, the Musclecontest Brazil Pro, that same season before making his Olympia debut in Las Vegas, NV.

The following career history comes from NPC News Online. He’s competed seven times as a professional as of January 2024, and he has two pro wins.

Ramon Dino’s Back Workout

To maximize his potential, Queiroz can’t allow himself to get too big or alter his symmetry, which is the calling card for the Classic Physique division. So, he has to be methodical with his training. While preparing for the 2023 Olympia, he clearly aimed to improve back thickness, which is why he focused a lot of his back training on rows

This sample workout was taken from his YouTube channel. The exact sets and reps were not shown, but he appeared to stay in the eight to 15 rep range. If you want to try a sample version of his training, the workout below can serve as your Dino-esque guide.

Bent-Over Row: 3-4 x 8-15

Hammer Strength Row: 3-4 x 8-15 

Lat Pulldown: 3 x 10-15

Machine One-Arm Bent-Over Row: 3 x 10-15 

Weighted Hyperextension: 3 x 15*

*Upon failure, let go of the weight and perform more reps until you reach failure again.

As for his nutrition and prep for contests, Queiroz works under the guidance of coach and nutritionist Chris Aceto, who has worked with many victors over the years, including former Mr. Olympia winners Jay Cutler and Shawn Rhoden.

Social Media

Like many of bodybuilding’s most popular athletes, Queiroz is active on social media. He has over 5.5 million followers on Instagram, over 600,000 followers on TikTok, 526,000 followers on Threads, and his YouTube channel boasts over 540,000 subscribers. 

He hasn’t posted a new video on YouTube since November 2023, but he’s regularly active on all his other outlets, promoting brands and sharing posts about his wife and children.

Business Ventures

Queiroz’s popularity has been attractive to sponsors and businesses, which is why he’s an active spokesperson for numerous brands. His supplement sponsor is Max Titanium, which is based in his home country of Brazil. He also works with Dr. Peanut and Mith Official Clothing. Queiroz is a coach and works with clients both for competition and lifestyle fitness.


If Queiroz continues to compete, it may be only a matter of time before he assumes the mantle of number one man in Classic Physique. Based on the success he’s already achieved, he appears to be ready to hold that top spot. 

There are other rivals in the division he will have to hold off in the future, including Terrence Ruffin and Urs Kalecinski, but many fans feel that Dino will be Bumstead’s successor, particularly when he decides to hang up his posing trunks.
