Jeremy Buendia is a 4x Men’s Physique champion (2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017) which makes him one of the best fitness competitors ever.

Now, there are some differences between Men’s Physique and Classic Physique. Men’s Physique is based more on an aesthetic look like fitness modeling but with personality and stage presence being a big part of the judging criteria as well. The men also wear board shorts and so the upper body focus is wide shoulders and a tapered waist.
Classic Physique is like the Open class but competitors are not as big and the focus is more on a slim waist and big, ripped muscles like the days of Arnold Schwarzenegger. These competitors are in posing trunks like a typical bodybuilding contest.
Now, Jeremy Buendia obviously has the shape and genetics to compete in the Classic division, however; he’ll need to size up and get his legs bigger to compete with the Classic guys. But whether or not he’s actually going to move to the Classic division is still uncertain.
So, we’ll keep you posted if we learn of any information regarding his competition plans.
