In some ways, Jay Cutler looks like the prototypical Mr. Olympia: ultrawide, gargantuan- muscled, lantern-jawed — a supersized superhero. But in at least one way he doesn’t fit in. Unlike multiple-Sandow winners Arnold Schwarzenegger, Franco Columbu, Lee Haney and Ronnie Coleman, he’s never been celebrated for his pec development. In fact, it’s just the opposite. Chest has been Cutler’s weakest bodypart, as it tended to flatten out on contest days. Of course, “weakest” is relative when discussing the winner of four Sandows, but Cutler is a perfectionist, always striving to eliminate even the smallest deficiencies. As he attempts to win his fifth Sandow, Mr. Olympia is keeping chest at the top of his priority list and, like the legends who pre- ceded him, leaving no detail to chance.
