Jay Cutler Looking A Bit Off at Atlantic States

Two-Time Defending Mr. Olympia Guest Posing Shows Work to Be Done

The official flyer for the 2008 NPC Bev Francis Atlantic States Bodybuilding, Fitness and Figure Championships shows a grimacing Jay Cutler busting out a chest pose at what appears to be last year’s Mr. Olympia contest. He is huge and shredded, but still was not an overwhelming winner.

Cutler headlined the Atlantic States qualifier contest as a guest poser, and took the stage in lower Manhattan on June 7, not looking quite as sharp as the advertisement. Don’t get me wrong. I know that the Mr. O is three and a half months away, and there is plenty of time to get in game shape. But Cutler didn’t look much different than he appeared during the Arnold Classic at the beginning of March. Shouldn’t he have tightened it up in the past four months?

You don’t win two Sandow trophies by accident, so Cutler must have his training regiment spelled out and carefully calculated. If he did an appearance, let’s say in August, I’m sure I would be eating my words.

At the Bev Frabcis event, Cutler appeared very thick in the middle, and soft in that section, as well. While he did appear to have the size, he just didn’t look like a champion. (You be the judge and let me know what you think about this picture of Cutler.) His controversial wins at the Olympia have cast doubt on him to begin with, so one would figure that he would do everything he can to be a slam dunk winner in Vegas. And maybe he will, but judging by his latest appearance, he still has a long way to go.
