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. Although they have a globally recognized ambassador in the person of Arnold Schwarzenegger, it is not a particularly popular profession. 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.

Despite the limited popularity of the sport, there is plenty to know about Kai Greene and his professional career, which includes being an actor, artist and professional trainer. Read on.

Early Life and Career Beginnings

Some call him ‘The Predator’ while others call him ‘Mr. Getting It Done’, whatever you call him, Kai Greene has become one of the top stars of bodybuilding, celebrated by fans of the sport.

Sadly, it hasn’t always been such a happy story for Kai Greene, who was born on the 12th of July, 1975 as Leslie Kai Greene in Brooklyn, New York. He lost his parents at the age of six and was put in the foster care system, where he bounced from home to home.

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.

The idea turned out to be a stroke of genius as it not alone curbed his excessiveness but gave him a profession that would make him into a star.

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).

He made his debut as a pro-builder in the IFBB New York Pro in 2005 and has competed in various competitions ever since, including the Arnold Classic, which he won in 2009, 2010 and 2016.

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.
