I’m a four-time Mr. Olympia and a bodybuilding champion in my fifties – there’s one exercise I avoid at all costs to stay fit
A four-time Mr. Olympia winner has explained why an iconic exercise was never part of his training regimen.
Jay Cutler continues to inspire athletes well into his 50’s with his incredible bodybuilding physique.
After retiring, Cutler has made it his mission to provide veterans with advice on the most effective muscle-building techniques.
In a current YouTube shorthe discussed an iconic exercise popularized by bodybuilding legend Arnold Schwarzenegger.
The former California governor was known for inventing the Arnold Press, which adds internal rotation of the arm to the classic overhead press to target more muscles.
While many Arnold students made the exercise their own, Cutler said it never did him much good in competitions.
Known for his ripped back and bulging shoulders, the Mr. Olympia champion is definitely someone to turn to for advice on developing a godly torso.
He admitted the idea of the exercise was great, but it never developed his body the way others have.
“In my routine, I have my own standard dumbbell press,” he said while standing next to his three Arnold Classic trophies.
“But if you want to change up your routine a bit, throw in the Arnold press and see if it fits.”
While encouraging people to try new exercises for themselves, he pointed out that he couldn’t have earned all of his awards without developing an impressive routine.
“I got over some pretty stubborn body parts — shoulders are one of those body parts,” he said.
“I couldn’t have won three Arnold Classics without a great developed shoulder structure.”
Last year there were rumors that Cutler would compete in the 2023 Master’s Olympia, but he said it wouldn’t happen.
However, in a recent interview on his own channel, JayCutler TV, he told fans that they would see him at the event.
Jay will not be attending but will be there as a guest.
Despite being retired, he continues to train and stay in shape.
He said he plans to share his journey back to the ’50s on his YouTube channel and hopes to inspire others to stay fit.
He said, “I think I’m actually going to be documenting this for YouTube, and I’m actually going to be showing my body in the poses as we progress, wow… like I’m about to undress.”
Jay promised fans to share glimpses of his body every week.
Master’s Olympia is a prestigious bodybuilding competition that offers veteran bodybuilders another chance to compete.
It is set to return in August 2023 after an 11-year hiatus.
To prepare for the competition, Cutler puts himself on a crazy diet that many say is impossible to eat.
