The motto of Julius Caesar “ came, saw, won ” can be fully applied to Jay Cutler . The genius of 25 years won first place among weightlifters at the US Championship in Dallas and became a professional in the fourth tournament of his life! Nature rewarded him with powerful potential - such muscles are found, perhaps, only once every hundred years. And plus to this, Jay’s head also works in the right direction, which is a rare occurrence in young, progressive “stars”.
On August 3, 1973, Jason Cutler was born in Worcester, Massachusetts, USA. Jay’s childhood was quite active, he worked on his father’s farm, as well as in his brother’s business, which instilled in him the skills of perseverance and hard work, and labor, as a rule, physically shapes a person. This served as the basis for his body and pushed him on the path of the man that he has now become.

During his school years, Jay traveled frequently and constantly changed schools. He did not suffer from a lack of attention and was quite popular. At school, Jay played soccer professionally. Having successfully graduated from school in 1991, he began to study at Quinsigamond Community College and received a degree in criminal law. Since Jay did not take part in college sporting events, he independently engaged in bodybuilding, and very soon achieved impressive results.
Jay is often equated with 22-year-old Lee Haney. Both achieved astounding success at a fairly young age. Moreover, Cutler, like Haney, is impeccable in his judgments. After getting a pro card in Dallas, he presented a seemingly illogical statement that he had no plans to speak for the next year! Given that the ink had not yet dried in his agreement with the Whiders, this was crazy. However, Cutler was adamant.
Today, Jay Cutler is 37 years old, his height is 176 cm. His weight must be maintained in accordance with the requirements of bodybuilding fashion, so during the competition he is 125 kg. During the off-season, its weight is equal to the weight of any professional bodybuilder. Its weight can approach 145 kg at the stage of mass building.
Jay took part in the filming of a large number of videos on preparations for the Mr. Olympia competition, and he also has his own videos of his ongoing training. Jason is also the direct author of Jay Cutler`s No Nonsense Guide to Successful Bodybuilding .
Today, Jay Cutler is a four-time Mr. Olympia . Moreover, he is considered the only bodybuilder in the history of the IFBB to regain the title of “ Mr. Olympia ” after losing (2008 from Dexter Jackson).
