  • Day in the Life of Kai Greene

    I have much respect for Kai. The guy seems very down to earth and always displays a high level of intelligence. This is the first part in the series, I'm excited for the rest.

    Kai is one of the most humble guys i have met in bodybuilding....

    the final 10 min should be watched by every up an coming bodybuilder... so many young delusional guys out there...all they talk about is winning contests, turning pro, what guru they are hiring thats going to make them a champion...these kids want to do all these things they have all these goals but they can't execute the basic fundamental tasks

    they dont pack their meals, they cheat on their diet...and they are lazy bottom line

        rapefruit aside, Kai really does seem like a genuinely nice guy. He's kinda out there, but that's another thing I like about him.

        Speaking of meal prep, am I the only one that enjoys watching vids of pros prep their meals MORE than their training? Each variation or different angle of an exercise becomes less and less interesting. Meal prep...that's where it's fascinating. Tips and tricks of selecting your food, prepping in, flavoring it, packing it, finding the time to eat it. Meal prep is just as important, if not more, than the training itself. One you see variants of high intensity and focus, you've seen it all. But...

        Watching Ronnie's 22 inch arms delicately pushing around runny eggs on a pan...Evan intently giving spinach an ice bath...Branch salting his ground buffalo beef...Shawn Ray sprinkling his home-brought tuna onto a salad at Sizzler's...sounds boring yet relaxing.

            Its kind of funny about the grapefruit, in that video he mentions having to "scrape pennies" an "strip" to make money to afford food. It's very brief but he does mention it.

              Man Kai is a character but it's real hard not to like him. The videos where he trains with regular joe's are also awesome. Funny to see him walking around lookin goofy as hell but knowing that's a top 3 bodybuilder in the world. Sometimes he's really long winded but I prefer his videos compared to branch or Keith Williams.

                What I don't like about Kai, is that he tries to speak as if he were extremely intelligent, but it just comes out as gibberish and makes him look like an idiot.


                You see...... in life...... there comes a moment when an individual......... comes against..................differing obstacular situations............... and must rise above.............. it's an unprecedented accumulation.......... wherein.................copious personified traits........... individual of the common collective psyche......more artisitc than nought...... and that is where I draw the strength to overcome my struggles.

                I get the same feeling when I think about Kai speaking that I get when I think about the American Idol contestants that they show in the first two weeks. Not the terribly funny people, but the people that are completely blind to just how bad they are.

                  I find Pulcinella's voice to be very irritating for some reason.


                  Reminds me of the old 80s vids I would watch in history class in high school.

                      yea kai can sometimes be long winded and talk in circles using big word to sound intelligent just like Mike Tyson...but give the guy a break, no formal education he basically taught himself to read. He's done pretty well for himself if you ask me.

                      and the whole g4p thing...would i do it? no

                      but if thats what you have to do to get by financially then so be it...he hustled and made money to survive. this isnt new to bodybuilding..people did weird shit like this back in arnolds day too

                          I would much rather focus on his physique and how he got there then spend time judging him for how he speaks or what he did in the past.

                          I'm also amazed at how little rice he packed into his meals, I guess he doesn't eat a huge amount of carbs.

                            Meh, I can overlook a difficulty to verbally express yourself; I would fail my middle school projects/presentations because I didn't want to talk for risk of embarrassment.

                            Do you guys remember Michael Jordan's and Magic Johnson's postgame interviews? You guys would be frustrated with them too, lol. Talk about pedantic.

                            edit. If you guys are bored, check out the 'Tyson' documentary. I was a fan of Mike Tyson before watching it, became a BIGGER fan after watching it.

                            Two of my friends saw him at a bar in Vegas. They went up to him and started chatting about his career and all that jazz. After a few minutes, 2 hot girls went up to Mike and tried to strike up a convo and be all flirty. With an annoyed look he tells the girls to go away because he's having a conversation. Mike's badass.

                            edit2. Kai Greene still living in a neighborhood that the documentarian described as 'downtrodden' reminds me of a Kevin Levrone interview. In it, he describes how during his contest prep, he would sleep in one of his empty rooms (no furniture, no bed, nothing) ON THE FLOOR for 8-12 weeks straight. When asked why, he stated that he felt he was at war with his competition (at the time it was Shawn Ray, Dorian, Flex, Nasser) and didn't want to feel comfortable. It prepped him for a better mindset. Kevin's badass.
