Jay Cutler is an American bodybuilder and four-time holder of the title Mr. Olympia (2006, 2007, 2009, 2010).
Now, Jay is 43 years old and he has an average height of 175 cm. His weight must meet the requirements of the culturist fashion, and during the competition it is 125 kilos. In the off season, his weight is comparable with the weight of any other professional bodybuilder – at the stage of gaining weight it reaches 145 kilos.
Jay Cutler is one of those who, along with Ronnie Coleman, has a combination of mass and form, marking the beginning of a new era.
Jay’s ascension to Olympus began at the age of 18, when he was officially recognized as the strongest guy in the school. His then-record was 142,5 kilos in bench press. Not bad for a teenager. But wait, the future giant took the road to Olympus even earlier.
This started long before the dumbbells and the bar of the local gym. Jay was a bookworm in everything that concerned sets, repetitions, training and the regime, that is, he was an educated sportsman, but not a scuffle with ambiguous aspirations.
He spent hours by reading books and magazines in search of the shortest possible path to victory. He had to choose between the training philosophy of Coleman and Yates, which ultimately led to the birth of his own version of the volume-pumping method.
Like anyone enthusiastic about bodybuilding, he tried the method of King Dorian (high-intensity training), but found that his body did not respond properly to it.
Jay has developed his own system, a kind of hybrid styles of athletes of the past and present.
Realizing that low volumes do not suit him, he turned to 16-20 sets. Like all self-confident people, he was not afraid to go against the current. For him, it was the right volume, giving growth and providing such an important recovery.
He liked the gradual entry into the training on the way to the final pumping. To achieve this state and to saturate his huge muscles, he needed just such number of sets.
Nowadays, Jay heats every muscle group about once every five days. Frequent travel in the off-season can change the schedule.
The bodybuilder chooses the weight according to his state of health on the given day. If there is no drive, then he can also reduce the load. Moreover, he does not care who and what whispers somewhere in the corner – sprained muscles are not worth it.
If he is too tired to raise 200 kg 8 times, he will do 10-12 reps with 165 kg. The muscles get a good job, and Jay avoids the stupid trauma. The ego should never interfere with the progress of a true professional.
In general, Jay performs from 4 to 6 exercises with 2-4 working sets in each. Since his hips respond well to stimulation, he restricts the session for quadriceps to twelve working sets. Similarly, the deltoids (another strong part of the body) receive about a dozen of sets.
And again, depending on the state of health, he can do more or less. Nothing is sacred except for “train hard, train wisely”.
