Jeremy Buendia isn’t letting injuries stop him.
Injuries plague every athlete from those at the highest level of their sport to individuals just looking to stay active. There’s nothing like a good injury to bog you down when you’ve been making considerable and ample progress. While many people use their injury as an excuses to stop training and simply lay down and rest, that may not always be the best decision.
Resting is certainly a requirement that should be taken under consideration. You have to listen to your body after all and an injury suffered during normal training or activity could be a tell tale sign that you need to take a moment to recover. But research has shown that if you can manage to train the other muscled that haven’t been effected by the injury, then the muscle loss and degradation will be minimal. Apparently that’s something four time Men’s Physique Olympia champion Jeremy Buendia is taking under consideration.
After suffering a pec injury, it was uncertain how Jeremy Buendia would fair when he finally made his return to the gym. Now it appears that we have our answer.

Back at it. Hips are tight as you can see by my range of motion. But nonetheless, I got a great pump and good reconnection back to my quads, glutes and hamstrings. Stretching is going to be major ? – Doubling up on my #AminoJect to help with this soreness that’s about to wreck me the next 72 hours! – @evogennutrition – Use code 15offJB
Do you think Jeremy Buendia will recover in time for the Olympia?
