American bodybuilder Jeremy Buendia set the gold standard for the Men’s Physique division before taking to the sidelines in 2018. In a recent video uploaded on YouTube, Buendia mentored social media fitness influencer Jesse James West through a brutal Mr. Olympia shoulder workout 23 days from his next show.
Jeremy Buendia gained a passion for working out early in life and started competing in bodybuilding competitions in his teenage years. He first rose to prominence for his insane upper body development, conditioning, and symmetry as a Men’s Physique competitor in 2013 when he took silver to Mark Anthony in the division’s inaugural Mr. Olympia event.
Buendia returned the next year sharper than ever and took home the top prize at the 2014 Mr. Olympia. He went on a dominant run that saw him win the Men’s Physique Olympia title four times in a row. After dropping the crown to Brandon Hendrickson in 2018, he stepped away from the competition.
In Oct. 2022, Buendia offered the huge 4,600-calorie bulking diet he utilized to pack 19 pounds in two weeks. Having teased the possibility of returning to the stage with a more jacked physique, he took full advantage of the off-season. Following the crowning of Erin Banks at the 2022 Mr. Olympia, Buendia confirmed his plans for a comeback and declared his ambitions to reclaim the title at the 2023 Mr. Olympia.
Buendia gave his take on the current crop of talent in the Men’s Physique category earlier this year. Given how stacked the division is, he believes he would need to bring a flawless package to contend with the most elite competitors.
Jeremy Buendia left the fans stunned with a ripped physique update four months ago. He revealed he’s taking TRT (testosterone replacement therapy) along with peptides and weighed around 210 pounds lean ahead of his anticipated comeback.
Social media sensation Jesse James West has carved out his own space in the fitness community with his athletic and entertaining content. He often collaborates with some of the biggest names in fitness for pranks and insane workout sessions, such as former World’s Strongest Man Eddie Hall, and bodybuilding legend Ronnie Coleman.
Jesse doesn’t shy away from any sort of workout challenge. In the past, he adopted the lifestyle of Liver King for 50 hours before partnering with four-time Mr. Olympia Jay Cutler for a chest training and posing session.
