Workout Advice:

Exercise Tip For Standing Barbell Presses:

Always use a medium grip on the bar, use controlled strict form, and position your head so that you're looking up during each rep.

Lat pull-down: This is an exercise used by Jay. It's often used with momentum, but when you slow the exercise down, it can be a powerful lat developer.

Squats: A lot of people use sloppy form. Keep your chest and head up. Push with your legs, not with your lower back.

Burn Out Reps: Jay cutler is big on burning the muscles... Forcing the muscles to their absolute limit. "Get the blood flowing."

1 Exercise To The Next: During some of Jay cutlers workouts, he often moves from 1 exercise to the next, with very little breaks in between.

T-Bar Row: This is an exercise that can really strain the lower back when you're using heavy weight. Try standing more straight with a slight bend in the knee.

Deadlifts: Best when done off the rack, because it will put more attention on the back and less on the glutes. Use a medium grip for deadlifts, and pull by using the back muscles rather than the glutes.

Bench Press:
-"I find it best to keep my back arched."

Jay Cutler's workout is preplanned each day. Meaning, he doesn't necessarily stick with the same workout routine each time. "I go by FEEL" - Jay Cutler

Back Training:

"I have 2 different Back days, where 1 day I focus a lot on rowing exercises, and the next Back workout I focus more on pull-ups and pull-downs.. What I call "width exercises" and the rowing would be more for thickness." - Jay Cutler

"I almost always start with reverse pull downs on back day." - Jay Cutler

"A strong Back, and a set of strong legs, wins bodybuilding competitions... everyone knows that!" - Jay cutler

Any exercise that has me leaning over, I wear a belt. If my lower back is in a vulnerable position, I always wear a belt" - Jay Cutler
