Kai Greene

Bundles of muscles run all over his body, occasionally being disrupted by threads of veins running here and there. Some call him the monster. The bodybuilding world refers to him as the predator. They know him for all his successes in this fraternity, but very few truly understand who Kai Greene is.

Kai Greene

Kai Greene – The Predator

Leave alone what brought him such success over the years. He was born on July 12th 1975 and currently stands at 1.75m tall. He is an active American IFBB professional bodybuilder who boasts of great success in this field.

Early life
At six years old, he became New York state ward due to a natural problematic home environment. This was the beginning of a decade of foster care between homes. Everything happens for a reason and so it did for him. It was within this period that weight training offered the perfect gate away from the surrounding situation. The urge to make it as a visual artist continued to grow at the same time. it was in his 7th grade that his exponential growth got the attention of his English teacher. Then was when the idea of bodybuilding came up. The desire and enthusiasm to one day make it increased. He started participating in young bodybuilding contests which acted to motivate him. he once came second in the young competition and decided to pack on some muscle and turn professional later.

Where he trains
He chooses to refer to it as his home and institute of competitive education. He spends most of his time in the 5th Avenue Gym working out on to become who he is today. He met some many bodybuilders in this small basement Gym in Brooklyn. They all represented the knowledge he dearly needed to succeed in this field. This saw him pack on some muscle into the monster bodybuilder he currently is. At the age of 19, he went pro.

Professional career
1999 was a year of mixed success for him. He unsuccessful competed in the first heavyweight division but finally won it together with the overall Team Universe title. This earned him an invitation to compete at the world level hosted in Bratislava, Slovakia. Earning a fourth place at that competition left him very disappointed. Something had to be done. He took a 4 year hiatus to pack on muscle and tact needed at the most top level. During this time, he continued taking art lessons as he still trained. The thrill came back again when NPC Team Universe had risen to be a pro-qualifier for the IFBB. With this information, he swore to reclaim and beat existing monsters to the top spot in 2004. He has a enjoyed a multiple success as listed.

Awards and placings

2007 – Shawn Colorado Arm classic: was 1st in Men’s best arms category
2008 – NY Pro: 1st
2008 – Arnold classic: 3rd
2009 – Olympia: 4th
2010 – Arnold classic: 1st
2012 – Mr. Olympia:2nd
2013 – Mr. Olympia: 2nd
2014 – Mr. Olympia: 2nd

Conclusion
Kai Greene is still active despite the numerous awards he has already one. He feels like there is more to achieve. He took the industry by hand and has to make drive him to his height. He still leaves in Jacksonville, Florida an still hits the Gym hard. He looks older though more build nowadays. You will often find him with a towel and a bottle of milkshakes in the 5th Avenue Gym. For him, the bodybuilding world means everything.

    He looks like an over inflated ballon. Builders should go back to that
    original (arnold) era where they have a more natural Adonis look.

    First off id like to say im not a big fan of body building at all. Yes this
    sport takes some hardwork etc and i respect these guys for that. What lead
    me here was after watching a movie called Generation Iron. I would further
    like to say that after watching it they told the journey of the body
    builders and the contest of 2012 Mr Olympia. I then googled after watching
    this movie to see who won it in 2013 and 2014 and im extremely dissapointed
    NOT to see Kai Greenes’ name on that list. This dude impressed me immensly.
    His story. His talents. Hard work. Not having a mum or dad behind him. What
    a guy. I hope Kai will win Mr Olympia in the near furture.

    Athletes do it for the money. We need to stop idolizing people who only
    care about physical perfection and think about all the ones who fall short
    of that glory. The 99% that go undrafted need to wake up. If they would
    have invested time in social and moral goals, this country might not be so
    fucked…! =|

    “Athletes are in many ways, our cultures holy men”.

    This is what athletes actually think of themselves, people.

    Great message. All the supplements and new age regiments in the world
    won’t make up for a lack of basic diet knowledge and application.

    Mike, this is a great documentary. I love how Kai emphasizes the
    dedication to eating properly for bodybuilding. You guys show the real
    secret to bodybuilding – tupperware, food prep, and eating every three
    hours without missing meals. I see so many guys putting all their effort
    into lifting and then eating only two or three meals a day and wondering
    why they make no gains. The total commitment to the bodybuilding diet is an
    essential component that most people are either not aware of or do not have
    the discipline to follow. This is video shows what it takes.

    Bodybuilders are some of the most dedicated people on the planet. Its their
    life. Steroids or not, the effort that goes into what they do is beyond me
    and gives us the pleasure and aw of watching them either on stage or in
    movies.
