Jay Cutler on Jeremy Buendia’s “Men’s Physique saves bodybuilding” statement, talks about all the different divisions in the bodybuilding!
The former 4 times Mr. Olympia champion Jay Cutler is one of the best bodybuilders in history. Jay with a massive frame and solid definition eventually able to dethroned the all the great 8x Mr. Olympia champion Ronnie Coleman.
Jay Cutler is the only bodybuilder to regain the Olympia crown after losing out to the great Dexter Jackson, Jay Cutler has garnered much respect from fans and competitors alike for his humble personality and candid approach to giving advice. Jay recently released a video on his YouTube channel where he talks about the controversial statement by the Men’s Physique champion Jeremy Buendia and also discusses the future of bodybuilding divisions.
Jay agrees, that the Men’s Physique division is very popular in the younger audience:
“I’m a fan of every division…
Jeremy has a great physique all around. he’s out there grinding… and I respect the guy a lot for that.”
“I think the Men’s Physique causes more excitement because the guys are younger I mean you have guys in their 20s that are doing very well and I think that’s that’s an enthusiasm from the audience especially the young guys where is the bodybuilding side you have to be in your 30s to make a solid breakthrough…”
He added, “I won my first Olympia at 33 Phil Heath won its first at 30….”
Jay Cutler says, he thinks there is a miss interpretation of what Jeremy was trying to say.
“I don’t think Jeremy was trying to say, ‘hey you know bodybuilding is dead’ he’s talking on the amateur level which is true it wasn’t for Men’s Physique, we wouldn’t have as much abundance to show… Same thing goes for Women’s Bikini over Women’s Figure or Fitness or Physique… It’s all Bikini and Men’s Physique at these amateur shows.”
Jay also talks about the Sergio Oliva Jr. taking shots at the Classic Physique calling it a shortcut compare to Open Bodybuilding division.
“I don’t know what the controversy is with you know especially like I know Sergio Oliva has been speaking his mind lately about ‘well guys are taking the shortcut they’re doing classic’ I think everything should be a stepping stone… so like if you’re not big enough as a teenager you have the option to do Men’s Physique and then you can move up to Classic [Physique]…”
Jay Cutler also gives a solid advice to young Sergio Oliva Jr.:
“Focus on being the best you can be and don’t use the negativity of the other divisions”
Jay also explains why all the divisions are important for the success of the bodybuilding sport.
“People saying the Classics [Phyqisue] is the way of the future it’s not the way of the future…
I think the future is EVERY DIVISION.“
