Four-time Men’s Physique Olympia winner Jeremy Buendia is making a return to the Men’s Physique division. Ahead of this exciting comeback, he has given us a look at his physique, and it would be safe to say he has been working extra hard.
After coming in fourth at the 2018 Olympia, breaking his four year streak, Buendia announced that he would be retiring from bodybuilding. Although he remained active in the sport during that time, it was disappointing that he was not competing. However he surprised the community when he revealed that he would not only be coming out of retirement, but doing so with a change to his training team.
Although there was no caption to this latest Instagram post, none was needed. When Buendia announced he was coming back, he revealed that he would be training with the guys at Oxygen Gym, in Kuwait. It would seem that this was a wise decision, as he has been cleaning up his physique, and looks jacked and ready for this return to action.
Now obviously there is still a lot of work to do before Jeremy is ready to take the Olympia stage. That being said, he has clearly worked a lot on his back. He actually alluded to that with a follow-up post, talking about the diet and training he has been using to get his physique back up to par, even responding to those who bring up steroids to him.
“Still working on re-gaining 100% control of my left side, but the progress has been great & training has gotten a lot less painful!
I’ve been consuming roughly 280g protein daily, 80g fat, and 400g carbs. With about 3-4 cheat meals per week. I cut cardio out a month a go because my metabolism caught back up!
Looking back a month a go I was hardly eating, hardly training and looked pretty bad for my standards. Of course everyone is going to throw the “steroid factor” into any of my own transformations but the honest truth, gear doesn’t work with out the foundation of a solid training schedule and proper nutrition plan. Whether you are natural or not, the principles are still the same. Results may or may not be as extreme depending on the individual, but the results will still take place regardless!
Eat good! Train hard! And TAKE CARE OF YOUR METABOLISM!”
Despite very clearly losing the Men’s Physique Olympia back in 2018, Jeremy Buendia never seemed to be fully past it in his career. With a new chapter on the horizon, it will be interesting to see how he can rise to the occasion, come December.
