A few of us in life work hard and are fortunate enough to succeed in our passion.

But that's not enough for Hunter Henderson, a world-class powerlifter who is also a professional bodybuilder. (In July 2021, Henderson won the NPC USA Championship in Women’s Bodybuilding and earned IFBB Pro League status.)

Hold on to your glutes, because Hunter Henderson has added another world record to her list of accomplishments in powerlifting.

On Sunday, May 1, 2022, the 82.5-kilogram powerlifter broke the all-time world record in the back squat (raw with wraps) by lifting 305 kilograms (672 pounds). Henderson competed at the 2022 FQ Classic in Las Vegas, NV.

When it comes to bodybuilding, what can't Jay Cutler do? (Besides beat peak-career Ronnie Coleman in a lat spread, of course.)

On April 30, 2022, four-time Mr. Olympia champion Jay Cutler delighted his YouTube viewers with a high-volume chest, biceps and calves training session. The bodybuilding legend revealed his top four best mass-building chest exercises.

Cutler narrated his full workout while getting a 20-minute cardio session on an exercise bike outside the Fit Club LV gym in eighty-degree Las Vegas, NV. Check out the detailed training session via the video below. Cutler hits exercises on the machines, with free weights, using barbells, and cables.
