Jeremy Buendia is the greatest competitor the Men’s Physique division has ever seen despite losing his title in 2018, coming in 4th place after winning the contest in 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017. But back in October, Buendia explained that he’s coming back in 2020 to reclaim his title following a not so great 2019 overall regarding his personal life and career.
Buendia had a back and forth with several competitors in the Open Division, and then was accused of physical abuse by a girlfriend of which he was dropped by Steel Supplements. Then, he got into a fight at an event where he was apparently knocked down before getting revenge. And in September, the former Physique champ found himself in a verbal altercation with Mike Rashid.
So it definitely wasn’t his best year but it seems Buendia has left all of that in the past and is moving on in preparation to make a comeback like a true champ.

Here’s a recent post where Buendia explained how anxiety got the best of him but he was able to overcome it.

I had a bad day yesterday. Lacked motivation, had negative thoughts, and started questioning myself. I’ve had these days before. They happen to the best of us. Anxiety takes over, feels like your world can come crashing down on you in an instant. That’s the shitty thing about anxiety…it’s your mind fooling you. Making you think shit is worse than it really is. Having anxiety doesn’t make you mentally weak, but how you deal with it can. – Yesterday, it got the best of me. But I managed to catch myself and regain some logical thinking. I had to slow down, breathe, and bring myself back down to reality. God always has his way of leading you back to the right path, you just have to be open to seeing it. – Yesterday, as I was beating myself up. ROCKY 3 comes on…and it’s the scene where he is running with Apollo Creed on the beach and he gives up. Apollo saw that Rocky was done, but Adrien refused to let her husband surrender. She reminded him who he was. She reminded him he was champion, she reminded him that he was capable! The anxiety of Rocky’s past was destroying him, as soon as he let go of the anxiety and worry, his greatness came back! – Anxiety is there to high jack you from being your best self. Stay grounded, don’t let it consume you. Be Strong and navigate your way thru it & remember that YOU are always in control! – #FuckAnxiety – Shirt by @himalabrand – Pump by @ryse_supps
Hopefully, Jeremy Buendia stays away from trouble as his return will definitely be exciting for fans seeing as he once ruled the Men’s Physique division for four years straight.
