Jay Cutler Confident Brian Shaw Could Become A Bodybuilder

“100% because he has the structure and he’s not, he’s not mid-section heavy, heavy. He’s actually, I’ve seen him lean down. Like you know, listen, he’s 415(lbs) today, and he’s been 450(lbs) or bigger.
He definitely said, that you know his endurance and his mobility is better at a lower weight, so I think he competes around 400(lbs). Right, at the World’s Strongest?” Cutler said.
Cutler is confident that Shaw’s physical abilities would help him if he ever were to transition into bodybuilding. Given the amount of muscle mass Brian Shaw has already, the transition could be a relative one. Shaw has experience with various diets for maximizing performance which also serve as useful tools when exploring bodybuilding.
“But I think now, you know, they’re making it a little more difficult for these guys. You know it seems like if someone is great at something, they pull that obstacle out, right? So I think he could do it. I think if, he got on– it would probably take him a year to do the transition.
Absolutely. Cutler continued. I think anyone, no matter what, he’s got a lot of muscle behind him a lot of density behind him and I think he could do very well.”
