Bodybuilding legend Jay Cutler may have stopped competing, but he still trains diligently to stay in fantastic shape at 49. In a recent Instagram video published on December 30, 2022, Cutler shared some of his favorite movements for building arms at the gym.
During his illustrious career, Jay Cutler won the Mr. Olympia title on four occasions (2006, 2007, 2009, 2010). While battling against the world’s best, Cutler pushed eight-time Mr. Olympia Ronnie Coleman throughout their epic rivalry.
In the past, Cutler has opened up about the struggles of keeping up with Coleman. He specified that he was forced to separate himself from society and go to a ‘dark place’ in order to maintain his status as one of the best bodybuilders in the world for 12 consecutive years.
While he no longer performs on stage, Cutler’s love for bodybuilding is on display anytime he’s on a microphone or training at the gym. In retirement, he doesn’t shy away from working out with active competitors and imparts knowledge to rising talent anytime he has the opportunity.
Back in October, Cutler’s physique went viral after being spotted posing alongside fitness influencer ‘Lexx Little.’ Speculation regarding his comeback grew quickly, however, the former Mr. Olympia made it clear days after that he had no intention of making a bodybuilding return. Instead, the Massachusetts native revealed he was getting back in shape as part of a ‘fit for 50’ challenge.
Weeks after the exciting 2022 Olympia contest took place, Jay Cutler is sharing some useful movements for building insane arms. He listed a few of his go-to exercises for taxing the biceps and triceps during the video.
Jay Cutler Shares Top 3 Movements for Biceps and Triceps
In a recent video, Cutler discussed his favorite movements for building arms.
“How to build the most insane arms. My top three movements for biceps would be hammer curls, which are a little turned in, alternate dumbbell curls and lastly, the barbell curls. But for triceps, which is the larger muscle of the arm, I would say dips are really really beneficial.
Your row press downs, which I get a great contraction out of. And lastly, the French over-head press is really solid for building the most insane arms,” Jay Cutler shared.
When it comes to the biceps, Cutler advocated for hammer curls, alternate dumbbell curls, and barbell curls. Additionally, the bodybuilding veteran said he preferred dips, row press downs, and French over-head presses for triceps.
This wasn’t the first time that Cutler offered unsolicited workout advice. In November, the 49-year-old detailed the differences between barbell bench presses and dumbbell bench presses. He implored his audience to leave ‘your ego at the door,’ and prefers dumbbell bench presses because he finds the movement to be safer and less harmful to his joints.
Cutler was known for having impressive arms throughout his career. He compared his biceps with rival Ronnie Coleman, who was revered for his jarring size. While both men were at the peak of their careers, Cutler’s measured 22.5 inches whereas ‘The King’ sported 23.5-inch arms.
