We all witnessed
history being made when Jay Cutler took the crown for the fourth
time running, this September at the 2010 Mr. Olympia contest. Jay
defended his throne and claimed it as his own once again and
Muscular Development, which Jay calls his castle, the world's
biggest and best bodybuilding magazine - where else would the king
reside? We were the first magazine to sign Jay in 2001; now that
we've both reached the top, thanks to our loyal followers, it's our
pleasure to honor and congratulate MD's native son and share the
glory of his triumph.
Jay is an amazing competitor who has placed second or
better in all his contests from 2001 to 2010. Jay practically has
his own decade - the era of "King Cutler" - that's still going
strong. Since 2001, there were nine times when Jay placed no lower
than second place at the Olympia. If not for Ronnie Coleman, Jay
would have won a few more Sandows. Jay lost to Ronnie and placed
second in 2001; he didn't' compete in 2002. Jay lost by one point
in 2004, placed second to Ronnie in 2005, and beat Ronnie in 2006
Through it all, Jay has been a magnificent ambassador for
bodybuilding, and has done more for the sport than anyone
What does Jay have to say about his historic victory? There's only
one bodybuilding magazine in the world where you can find out!

Vinny Galanti had been a competitive
bodybuilder for over twenty years before earning his Pro Card at
Master's Nationals in 2008.
Vinny received his IFBB Pro Card at Master's Nationals in 2008,
after having been diagnosed the previous year with both Bell's
Palsy and Lyme Disease.
It was a long road to the Pro's for Vinny, but as he will tell
you, "Winning the overall in 2008: 16 years, 13 attempts, 1 pro

At the 2010 Nationals the rumor mill was
furiously churning with talk of the new Men's and Women's Physique
Divisions. In our conversation with a few judges, they admit that
women's bodybuilding physiques have gotten out of hand and can not
bring it back even with the "20% less" rule that has been put in
place. Therefore, in order to provide a place somewhere in between
bodybuilding and figure they're implementing the WPD. This falls in
line with what Bob Cicerillo stated in a Forum Post Here.
Bob Cicerillo, IFBB Men's Athlete Representative, came onto the MD Forums and clarified the
WPD implementation for 2011. He's been gracious enough to remain
and answer questions and concerns about this new division and the
fate to womens bodybuilding.
However, it seems to some forum members that they are not quite
sure what direction womens bodybuilding will take. Steve Weinberger
has stated that womens bodybuilding is here to stay. Bob says it's
here through 2011 and then its gone.
What are your thoughts and or wishes? One thing is for certain:
There will be two more divisions next year: Men's and Women's
Physique so be prepared for more competitors and longer

Haney Joins Team MD
We are pleased to announce that 8-time Mr. Olympia,
Lee Haney will be writing an exclusive monthly column in MD
starting next month! In 1991, Lee became the first 8-time
consecutive Mr. Olympia champion. Lee held that record for fourteen
years until October 2005, when Ronnie Coleman tied Lee's Olympia
record. Months before Lee's eighth and final Mr. Olympia win
against Dorian Yates, Steve Blechman signed Lee to an exclusive
contract with Twin Lab; who also owned Muscular Development, and
Lee wrote a column at that time. Prior to joining TwinLab and MD,
Lee was on contract with Weider.

for the 1982 Nationals
We have the utmost respect and admiration for Lee and his personal
values; his religious and spiritual belief, and for his commitment
to family! Lee was one of bodybuilding's greatest ambassadors who
helped set the highest possible standards in the sport and a
positive image of bodybuilding. Lee is a great champion both on
and off the bodybuilding stage and so we are thrilled to have him
back at MD and part of our team!
