Four-time Mr. Olympia Jay Cutler Reveals His ‘#1 Go To’ Hamstring Exercise for Maximum Gains


There are numerous bodybuilding exercises you can try, whether you use free weights or machines. Jay Cutler has also experienced a few during his illustrious career, earning him four Mr. Olympia titles. However, the 50-year-old has always presented the best to his followers based on his experience.

This time, the Quad Stomp posted on Instagram a video discussing his first move of the day’s hamstring workout. He also dedicates a caption to this viral video and writes:

“I know a lot of you who split leg workouts and like to hit the hamstrings on Saturdays, so this is MY #1 go-to for my entire career and beyond!”

Doing a leg day at the gym is never easy; however, with Cutler’s instructions one can achieve an ideal hamstring. The bodybuilder focuses on the Seated Leg Curl technique, which has long been on his top list because of the benefits it provides to the specific muscle area.

Cutler then recalls his time in Worcester, Massachusetts, and how he chose to go to a gym in Framingham just to use those types of machines. The bodybuilder also highlights the reason for choosing seated leg curls, saying:

“It looks like it’s just my hamstrings. I get a crazy pump after this one move.

The four-time Mr. Olympia adds that he will perform one or two feeling sets and three working sets of 10-12 reps each. His starting weight in the video is around 130 pounds, as it is his first set, and Cutler also states that he keeps the reps consistent in every session he does. The Quad Stomp further identifies a widespread misunderstanding about workouts, as he states:

“The high reps, damn it, it doesn’t help anything. It makes everyone think, “Oh, you’re going to get cut up if you do more high reps.” Misconception.”

The lower body of the four-time Mr. Olympia wasn’t the only impressive aspect of his physique during his prime; he also had a distinctive look on his triceps. And to achieve that, he once offered his community three specific routines.

The ultimate triceps workout from Jay Cutler

In his prime, Jay Cutler tried his hardest to beat all-time GOAT Ronnie Coleman after an eight-year reign at the Mr. Olympia podium. The Quad Stomp’s triceps were impressive and he started with a rope press down. This type of workout is a single-joint isolation exercise that builds and increases muscular endurance in the triceps muscle. According to Cutler, it warms the elbows and facilitates optimal blood flow to the right region.

The bodybuilder then mentions the push-down move, which he claims is everyone’s favorite exercise, and suggests completing it for 10 to 12 reps. For the final workout of this plan, he adds the French Press, and he encourages his followers to experiment with their own variations on this exercise for 3 to 4 sets each, focusing on 8-10 or 12-15 reps .
