Jay began bodybuilding with an all-or-nothing attitude. “I thought, if I’m going to be a bodybuilder, I’m going to see how far I can take it,” he says.
Jay “took it” far. He was immensely successful, even from the beginning. “Early in my career, I was successful at almost every show I did; I turned pro at my third or fourth show.”
Because of his early achievements, there was a lot of pressure for Jay to do well at his first Mr. Olympia contest in 1999. “I finished 15th out of 16. That was the only time I’ve ever questioned myself,” he confesses.
He won the Night of Champions in 2000. “After that show, I knew I could be very good. That’s when I knew I could be the best, and soon.” Alas, Jay’s first Olympia title was delayed for half a decade. He finished behind Ronnie Coleman four years in a row.
It wasn’t until 2006 that he finally became Mr. Olympia. He went on to win it again in 2007, 2009, and 2010. Now, he’s training for his chance to win another Sandow.
