Jay Cutler hit chest with some of his favorite exercises here. That was highlighted by dumbbell press on a flat bench. This was the second exercise of the day but Cutler believes it is No. 1 on his list on chest day.
“FAVORITE EXERCISE, IF YOU ASKED ME WHAT THE BEST EXERCISE TO GROW YOUR CHEST, IT IS THE SEATED, LYING FLAT DUMBBELL PRESS. DUMBBELLS PREFERABLY JUST BECAUSE I ALWAYS HAD ONE SIDE THAT WAS STRONGER THAN THE OTHER. YOU GUYS ASK THAT QUESTION A LOT. ISOLATERAL MOVEMENTS.”
Cutler began the chest portion of his workout with the incline hammer press machine before moving to dumbbell presses. Following three sets in both exercises, Cutler decided to take on the cables. This is a movement that he admits to not doing each week but decided to perform it in this particular workout.
The final chest exercise of the day was dumbbell flyes. Cutler laid on a flat bench and grabbed two dumbbells that were lighter in weight than those he used for presses. He explained that this exercise is great to build a certain area of the chest.
“YOU GUYS LOOKING TO BUILD YOUR UNDER, OUTER PECS, GREAT EXERCISE FOR THAT. YOU NOTICE AN ARCH IN MY CHEST, EVEN WHEN I BENCH, WITH A LOT OF THOSE MOVEMENTS I TRY TO KEEP THE CHEST OUT.”
“I WANTED TO TAKE ARM TRAINING OUT OF MY ROUTINE BECAUSE I HATE IT SO MUCH. I’LL BE HONEST, I HATE BI’S AND TRI’S. SO INSTEAD OF HAVING A BI’S AND TRIES DAY, WHICH I DID FOR MOST OF MY CAREER, I MOVED THEM TO CHEST AND SHOULDER DAYS.”
This was the next portion of his workout performing different variations of curls including seated cable curls and hammer curls. Cutler also performed an EZ bar curl with a wide grip. He used a thicker bar in order to focus on his grip and make the lift more difficult.
“I DO NOT LIKE TO CURL WITH A THIN BAR. THIS IS A WIDER GRIP. IT KILLS YOUR EGO A BIT BECAUSE YOU HAVE TO BE LIGHTER WITH THE WEIGHT.”
Jay Cutler makes sure to include calves into his regular training. This was the first movement that he did in order to warmup and get the blood flowing. Cutler performed sets on the seated calf machine and standing calf machine. Some say that they target different areas of the muscle but Cutler is not so sure.
“THEY ALWAYS SAY THAT WITH CALF TRAINING, THE STANDING CALF WORKS THE INNER CALF AND THE SEATED WORKS THE OUTER BECAUSE YOU’RE SEATED IN A BENT-KNEE POSITION. I DON’T KNOW IF I BELIEVE THAT VERY MUCH.”
