Even in retirement, Jay Cutler contributes to the fitness and bodybuilding community giving his tips and tricks for maximizing workouts. In a recent YouTube short, Jay Cutler demonstrates his effective dumbbell pullover technique for maintaining a well-defined chest.
Jay Cutler was a standout bodybuilder in the early 2000s. Having gone up against some of the sport’s biggest legends including Dexter Jackson, Phil Heath, and Kai Green, Cutler established himself as a formidable opponent. In 2006, Jay Cutler dethroned the eight-time Mr. Olympia champion Ronnie Coleman after their legendary rivalry.
In the course of his career, Jay Cutler consistently confronted intense competition, securing an impressive three additional Mr. Olympia victories for a total of four. Although he faced a temporary setback against Dexter Jackson in 2008, Cutler swiftly avenged his loss a year later with his iconic quad stomp pose.
Even at 50, the four-time Mr. Olympia champion hasn’t slowed down. Not only did he smash through his ‘fit for 50′ challenge while guest posing at the 2023 MuscleContest FitExpo but Cutler still admits to training seven days a week.
Jay Cutler’s Tips for Better Dumbbell Pullovers
Jay Cutler remains an influential voice in the fitness community often taking to social media to provide helpful tips for workouts and nutrition. His most recent piece of advice provided fans with his technique to optimize dumbbell pullovers.
“All right so we are going to do a pullover. So what I’m gonna do is I’m gonna do this in a diamond and what I am really trying to do is just stretch the chest like I told you. Pump, stretch, pump, stretch, it’s going to be our finisher movement” Jay Cutler says.
For sets and reps, Cutler said the following:
“Three sets, 75 pounds, of course, I used to do 150 on this but just kind of stretch and notice as I come over the top and kind of squeeze. So like I said for the back, I do it like this (closed fist), for chest I do it like this (diamond shape) so it kind of stretches.”
After showing viewers his method for dumbbell pullovers, Cutler shares another exercise that has contributed to him being able to maintain his ‘chiseled’ chest.
“Another exercise I usually do is like a pulldown like a cable pulldown and it helps stretch the fibers out ok. We are just going to keep the blood flow. One thing I have been able to hold onto as I’ve retired is a decent chest and I always liked having like when you wear a v-neck you have that chiseled look.”
