Training: Jay has been training in a heavy, powerlifting-like style since high school. It wasn't long before he discovered he was as strong as many weightlifters & bodybuilders weighing 100
pounds more than himself. After several years of training he began seeing the benefits of
a foundation of well-developed muscle teamed with low body weight. This prompted him to
pursue heavier lifting goals, leading to a strong early start in his bodybuilding career.
