4x Mr. Olympia Men’s Physique champion Jeremy Buendia is planning to make a comeback at the 2020 Olympia after having lost the title in 2018. He’s looking beefed up and due to his competitive experience and number of titles won at the highest level, he should be a threat for the number 1 spot once again. And for those who don’t know, because he was a former champion, he won’t need to qualify for the Olympia.
Now, things have been rather uncertain lately although, with the recent Tampa Pro, things are looking up for the sport as a whole and we’re looking forward to a strong remainder of 2020. So, we’ll just have to keep an eye on current events and hope these competitors are not busting their butts in vain.
But it certainly helps to be able to have other sources of income right now. Buendia offers coaching/training both in-person and online and he has been uploading clips of coaching sessions and photos of his clients’ progress.
And in a recent post, he shared some very useful tips for effectively training the rear delts which are an often underdeveloped muscle.

Here’s what he wrote in the post and we’ve provided the Insta post below…
“Important Tip for you guys & girls out there!
I see the biggest and baddest dudes in the gym doing this wrong all the time….I corrected this on myself recently.
This exercise is very specific. The rear deltoid is not a big muscle, other muscles naturally will try to take over!
Lighten up the load, and try doing it correctly! Your rear deltoids will be more pumped than ever!“
“First thing first you guys make sure your hands are no higher than your shoulders, shoulders are down and relaxed, you do not want to use your traps, make sure you have a full stretch in your rear deltoids“
Buendia said to use the thumbs to push the handles out and away while bringing the rear delts back which will activate the rear delts while minimizing the involvement of the traps.
These are some great tips for maximizing your rear delt training and we definitely suggesting keeping this information handy for the next time that your train your rear delts.
