Facts About The American Bodybuilder, Kai Greene

There are people who have been pushing the limit of the human body for years, and they are known as bodybuilders.

One of its lesser-known personalities is Kai Greene, who has been in the profession since 2005.

Professional bodybuilding has its own global regulating body, the IFBB, along with its competitions, and Kai Greene has made the remarkable achievement of finishing second thrice in one of his top competitions, Mr. Olympia.

While attending high school, specifically in the seventh grade, he was encouraged by his English teacher to consider bodybuilding competitions, taking advantage of the rapid physical growth Kai Greene had experienced at the time, in order to curb is troubling behaviour.

He competed in the National Physique Committee, winning a couple of competitions at a teenage level such as the 1999 NPC Team Universe and the 2004 NPC Team Universe, which eventually led him to a professional career with the International Federation of BodyBuilding and Fitness (IFBB).

In the IFBB topmost competition, Mr. Olympia, Kai Greene is yet to record a victory but has finished in impressive positions – third in 2011, and second in 2013 and 2014.
