Here’s a series of Most Muscular shots of @jaycutler at his historic 3rd Mr. Olympia win in 2009.
YES...2009! 
I always hear from a few people each time I post pix of Jay at the 2009 Finals “correcting” me that “This is 2010. He had a different haircut in 2009!”
No.
He had a different hairSTYLE at Prejudging. This is the hairstyle he had at Finals and he continued with this style in 2010 and afterwards. C’mon.
Anyway, here Jay teamed with @hanyrambod for the first time. This win was so historic because it was the first time a former Mr. Olympia was able to come back and win his title back after having lost it. Oliva, Zane, Dickerson and Bannout had tried to unsuccessfully...most tried multiple times. Jay had lost to Dexter Jackson the year prior and came back in 2009 at his absolute best. He was full and shredded! His physique was crisp and seemed 100% rejuvenated! One of the most dominant physiques to ever step on a Bodybuilding stage anywhere, anytime!
And another side note: notice I said he was the first Mr. Olympia to have LOST the title and to have come back to win it again. Inevitably whenever I say this about Jay I will have people “correct” me and say “You’re forgetting Schwarzenegger and Columbu! They came back and won in 1980 and 1981!”
Read. Digest. Think...before typing. Arnold and Franco didn’t lose the titles before their comebacks. They went out as Champs and came back to reclaim their titles. That’s different. Okay. I just had to say that.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy #JayCutlerDay here at @this_is_bodybuilding.

This is @jaycutler at the 2005 Mr. Olympia. This was his 4th and final time to place 2nd to the great Ronnie Coleman at the Olympia. It’s one of my favorite versions of Jay. He was maybe not as ridiculous HUGE and full as he’d been at the 2002 Arnold or 2003 Ironman, but he seemed sharper and there was more muscle maturity and density to his physique. His Back was much improved in terms of detail. I actually had him winning the Back Double Biceps over Ronnie as the atrophy on Ronnie’s left side was starting to be rather apparent. 
While I love Jay’s 2001 physique and think he possibly could have won that show, I am able to wrap my mind around the fact that Ronnie was still dominant in the Back poses. I personally believe, however, that Jay deserved the 2005 Mr. Olympia Title without any doubt in my mind. 
On a side note, Jay did win an additional $10K for Best Wheels (Legs) in the show. To my eye, Jay’s 2005 Olympia physique was my 2nd favorite Olympia version of Jay...with 2001 being a VERY close 2nd.

Here are some shots of @jaycutler winning the 2003 Ironman Pro. He went on to win the Arnold Classic a week or so later. This physique and the one he displayed a year earlier at the 2002 Arnold were superior to any physique that appeared on the 2002 Olympia stage. Unfortunately Jay did not compete in that show. There is zero doubt in my mind that Jay would have won that Olympia with straight first places across the board.
But that’s not what happened. I’m not sure it matters. The 4X Mr. Olympia and 3X Arnold Classic Champion is likely the most successful Bodybuilder in history not named @schwarzenegger. An additional Sandow or 2 (I will post 2005 Olympia pix shortly) would not have changed that fact.

This is probably my favorite shot of @jaycutler from his 2002 @arnoldsports victory at 5’9”, 273 pounds! He and coach @therealtechnician Chris Aceto presented one of the most complete and visually impressive physiques to ever step on stage!

This is Jason @ifbb_broku Lowe weighing 213 pounds at one week out from his @ifbb_pro_league 212 Bodybuilding debut at the 2019 @ifbbindypro! Jason is just a few weeks out of the 2019 @arnoldsports where he competed and placed 7th in Classic Physique. I am very excited to see how he fares in this show. I believe by 2020 he will be a major force in the 212. At about 5’8” I can see Jason eventually moving to Men’s Open Bodybuilding in time if he wants.
This is something that truly makes the the IFBB Pro League better today than ever. Guys (and gals) can learn their body and decide what Division they best fit into. I know of one Top 212 Bodybuilder who will be switching to Classic Physique this year, and I think he’s making a wise choice as well.
All 3 of these Divisions, as well as Men’s Physique, are incredibly competitive and as folks learn/decide where their body fits best the competition in each Division will only improve.
And I would say this to young men and women...don’t be afraid to experiment! If you’re a Bikini Competitor who’s been told you’re a bit on the muscular side...and you feel like you’re body wants to grow, why not give Figure a shot?
Of course I would recommend bouncing your thoughts off of unbiased experts who have nothing to gain or lose. Judges, coaches...NOT friends boyfriends/girlfriends/spouses!!! #jasonlowe #indypro #bodybuilder #bodybuilding #bethebiggerperson #thisisbodybuilding

@jaycutler is a 4X Mr. Olympia, and that’s a fact most everyone knows. Not as many people know that he is also the only man in history to have won the original Arnold Classic on 3 consecutive occasions (2002-2004). I believe this photo is shortly after his first victory in 2002. He also won the Most Muscular Man Award. He was on stage at around 273 pounds (he’s 5’9”) and in awesome shape; one of my favorite versions of Jay. I’ll post more of My Favorite Jay’s as the day goes on. Enjoy.

... I struggle to find any words to describe the heart ache felt after the loss of a loved one! My Girl, my sweet friend, my training partner @karliita_1 lost her financé @pocketpitbull_reza yesterday. If you’ve been around me at all over the last year and a half, chances are you have met Karla! We’re always together (and I will always be there forever my friend)  I can’t even fathom the pain she & her family feels at this time. It was a sudden, unexpected loss. ..she kissed him goodbye & left to work expecting to see him later in the day... instead he returned to his Father in Heaven...

Josué was an incredible man to say the least. He was a true #bodybuilder , he knew the sport, history and present. He trained with my Husband @deesmuscles & they had long heart felt talks. He was a true friend, his heart was big and his smile was unforgettable. He loved his fiancé, his family and his animals deep. +
Josué we will miss you forever! Rest in Love my friend! We will always watch over your girl & your family

Here are just some pix of me and a bunch of great people at the 2019 @arnoldsports shaking hands, pointing at each other , giving thumbs up  and or flexing .
I keep telling myself I’m not going to point or give thumbs up the next time. Then the next time happens and there I go . It’s an involuntary action. It was so great seeing all of these great athletes, artists and journalists at the show. So much personal inspiration in these pix.
Thank you all for taking the time to chat and pose. And a special Get Better Soon to the incredible @jaclynnyc who seriously twisted her ankle during her Fitness routine. She’s an amazing professional who finished the routine without me even realizing she was injured! Wishing you a speedy recovery Jaclyn!
