Jay Cutler’s loyalty and commitment to bodybuilding saw him quickly become a fan favorite during his prime. He faced tough competition against eight-time Mr. Olympia Ronnie Coleman, coming in second for four years running, but never gave up on his dream of being crowned the champ. As ‘The Comeback Kid’, he persisted and eventually achieved success in 2006 when he dethroned The King. Not long ago, he shared a video that showcased this determination and resilience.
On Instagram, the bodybuilding icon posted throwback footage. Videos showed the four-time Mr. Olympia training in the gym and telling his story. In spite of reflecting his champion mindset, the video inspired bodybuilders. He wrote in the caption, “No matter what you do, always give 100%.”
The inspiring determination of Jay Cutler
As clips of Cutler at his peak, working out in the gym, and posing on stage were shown in a montage, the Comeback Kid narrated the story. In spite of people’s recognition of his talent, the three-time Arnold Classic champion did not let compliments get to him.
Even though Jay Cutler spent millions on his diet, he ate fast food while young. He also didn’t have a balanced physique. However, after realizing his potential and finding inspiration from Arnold Schwarzenegger, the 49-year-old put his talent to good use. Despite feeling like he didn’t want to workout, Cutler dragged himself to the gym even when he didn’t feel like it.
