In 2015, Green launched its line of sports nutrition Dynamik Muscle.
Mr. Olympia 2015
Kai Green did not take part in the competition, despite the fact that he was officially announced on the Olimpia web site. He was also forbidden to appear at the exhibition EXPO, which is organized in the framework of Olympia. Subsequently, the video was distributed online with a weeping Green, upset about this. The tournament organizers, represented by Robert Chung, gave an official response that the reason was Kai’s refusal to sign a standard contract. American sports bloggers have reported that Kai did not find a common language in the terms of the show contract, demanding exclusive advertising rights in the Mr. Olympia contest and a free stand to promote his line of sports nutrition.
Childhood and youth Kai Green spent in New York. However, he still lives there, huddling in a tiny rented apartment in a far from respectable quarter. Green in general is a true ascetic. No car, no tidy bank account. All this mercantile fuss, Green considers, distracts from the main thing. And most importantly – it is bodybuilding .
Kai Green and Watermelon
Kai Green, like many top pro, was generously endowed with nature talent to build strength and weight. He took the dumbbell at the age of 12. The reason was banal. I wanted to be big. And he did it pretty quickly. At 18, weighed 118 kg, pushed down 227 kg and crouched 360. Green himself explains his phenomenal successes with a rare persistence in achieving the goal: “I have always been very focused on the result. In school years, sometimes, I even missed classes at school, and ate and slept all day. ” Green’s competitive career began at the age of 14. Since 1994, he quite regularly played in tournaments of various American federations, alternative NPCs and won a number of titles, which, however, did not tell us anything. But the fact that already in 19 years he; put 96 kg of “dry” muscles, and a year later – 105, causes respect. In 1999, Green found himself at the IFBB World Championship in Slovakia, where he took the sixth place in heavy weight. At that time, his track record already included participation in 25 tournaments. What Green did for the next five years is not exactly known. In 2004, he became the winner at TeamUniverse in heavyweight and absolute championship and apparently decided that he was ripe for the transition to the IFBB professionals, the Judges, who really did not know the guy – he had never participated, neither in NPCNationals, nor in NPCUSA, did not think so. Hence, a modest 14th place on NewYork Pro-2005. The following year, the results were even worse. Everything changed dramatically in 2007, when Green was immediately in sight. His third start that year at the Colorado Pro brought him his first victory.

In 2008, Kai first appeared on the Arnold Classic with a weight of 115.5 kg, which was a good 9 kilos more than a year earlier. He became the third after the future of “Mr. Olympia” Dexter Jackson and Phil Heath. He gave in an equal fight, despite the fact that literally on the eve of the start he was unwell, and all the preparation had to exalt the pain of the hernia. And Green missed Olympia-2008 not because he was afraid to lose, but because of this very hernia, the operation of which is scheduled for the summer. As a result – a two-month break in training! What kind of “Olympia!” “I looked at myself in the mirror,” Kai confesses, “and could not believe it – no matter how much I weigh in the offseason, I always saw my press and“ slash ”on my hips. Where did all this go? I wondered: could I even regain my former appearance? ”
And then help came to the aid of Green in the person of the greatest coach of all time, Charles Glass. At first, Charles consulted Green every day by phone, and Green moved from New York to Los Angeles to the final stage of preparation. “I first saw Charles in 2004 when I became the two-time absolute winner of Universe Team. Then we did not talk. Well, this time, when I approached Charles, I could not say a word at first, ”Green admits,“ for me he was an icon. ” Glass tweaked something in Green’s workouts and brought in something new. For example, he suggested that he should pump the whole body not in two days, but in four. And to speed up the development of nursing at the expense of benches lying with a stop. It’s like in powerlifting: you lower the barbell on your chest, pause, and only then press. Collaboration began to bear fruit. Yes, what!
Kai Green – video performance
Many believe that if Kai Green continues to grow at such a pace, he will soon have no equal. In this regard, it is increasingly compared with Ronnie Coleman . Green himself treats such things emphatically modestly: “Ronnie turned over the idea of human capabilities. There is no end of work ahead to at least somehow correspond to its level. ” In our opinion, Green is clearly being modest. He is already an elite. And another proof of this was his brilliant victory at the Arnold Classic super-tournament -2009. Notebook favorite Victor Martinez Green was beaten with his own weapon – unrealistically worked out hips and back.
To feed and build up its enormous mass, Green has to eat well. And this is putting it mildly. How do you: one and a half kilos of beef, a kilogram, a couple of dozen egg whites, a few cups of oatmeal, white rice, potatoes? And that’s not counting all sorts of stuff like chicken breasts, protein concentrates, and so on. It’s unbelievable, but they say that at one time Green ate 30 chicken breasts and 200 eggs a day! True, Green himself refuted these rumors, saying that it was either 30 breasts or 200 eggs! On the “drying” Green limits carbohydrates, but does not completely remove them: “When I eat carbohydrates, I feel better, I train more intensively, I look more full and massive.” On the “mass”, it happened, Kai ate 3.5 pounds of meat per day. Now eats less, because it uses meat protein Isolate from the company MuscleMeds – its sponsor.
From the diet it’s time to go to the training “stars”. To begin with, Green likes to work in different rooms. One of them – the famous “Powerhouse Jim”. “For 20 years, I plowed up at PowerHouse Jim BevFrancis. – Green admits, – this is the hall, in which I regularly went at least in order to keep abreast of large bodybuilding. Imagine what it feels like: to come to the gym and swing beside Mr. Olympia, Dorian Yats! And then go to the locker room and stumble on Flex Wheeler there! Even now I can go there to spy on guys like Phil Heath, who always trains there when he gets to New York. Above all, Powerhouse Jim is the best hall on the East Coast in terms of equipment. Especially when it comes to pumping up the legs. ” If you want to find Green in the hall, then it is better to do it in the morning: “I used to like to study in the hall somewhere from three to seven in the evening. Crowds of people around, adrenaline hovers in the air. All this is awfully cheerful. Today, I prefer to swing until noon, focusing on the inner voice. ”
By pumping muscles Kai Green fits creatively. Take more, throw further – this is not about him. Here’s what, for example, he says about back training, which many consider to be the best in the world: “Of course, I could say that I was able to fine-tune my back thickness through such exercises as deadlift, barbell thrust and T – griffin, but in fact it is not quite so. At one point, I just started to pull up between the approaches of the exercises to other parts of the body. But I did this not to pump up the broadest, but to improve the connection between consciousness and muscles, and I succeeded. And as soon as I learned to reduce my back muscles even better, I began to apply this in all exercises on my back, including camp exercises. Hence the result.
Kai Green exercise on the shoulders
Quite originally, Kai Green fits the leg training. Let’s say he does such a thing as Jefferson’s Thrust. This exercise is a kind of “trick” of Green. In many ways, thanks to him, he trumps on the stage with ripped buttocks. “I saw him at one time with a fairly well-known athlete Guy Ducasse,” says Green. “It is done this way: you put the barbell between your legs, as if you saddled it, and from this position you squat.”
In general, while others are trying to make the exercises easier, Green tries to make them harder, namely, to isolate all working muscles to the maximum. Yes, this guy is not looking for easy ways. Probably because he likes bodybuilding too much, which he calls his craft. And also because he is a true philosopher. Here are some of his statements: “Bodybuilding is a way of self-improvement that can be applied to all aspects of our life. A person who is lost in life can find himself in bodybuilding. ” And further. “The power of our consciousness is extremely great. Each of us can be whoever he wants. It’s just that many people don’t use their potential. ” As a true philosopher, Green is not alien to the craving for beauty. He draws wonderful and sculpts.
Green is unique not only for its super-muscles, but also for its ability to show them. Mandatory poses in his performance – a real spectacle. The athlete smoothly flows from one posture to another, demonstrating the amazing ability to control his body. Well, his free programs are something, against which Darrem Charles and Melvyn Anthony with their break dance are dying. Words can’t convey it. One headstand worth something! “As for my posing, I believe that this is my mission in terms of promoting, popularizing bodybuilding. – Green considers, – It’s just a shame when the young guys get on stage and can’t show anything. Therefore, I believe that it is necessary to greet in every possible way those who are trying to bring something new to the speech.
Green has a very shocking appearance: two long braids on a shaved head. Rumor has it that Kai Green shaved his head to look like Goro, a four-handed character from MortalCombat. But outside the stage, Green tries not to attract attention. “In truth, Brooklyn is the area in which I live — a restless place, here and there crowds of teenagers are scurrying around,” he says, “So I try to walk wrapped in clothes even in summer and not attract attention. True, it is still difficult to hide 135 kilos with a growth of 172 cm. Once, some guys approached me and asked: how long did it wind? They thought that I had come out of prison! ”Americans are madly in love with giving nicknames. But I will not understand what kind of fright Green was called “Predator”, I mean, “Predator”? I had the honor to communicate with him. My dear, kindest soul man. Soft warm hands and a smile that does not go off the face. At the same time, Green is extremely positive and will never allow himself a bad word to his colleagues: “I respect Dexter Jackson very much.”
At least for the fact that he did not listen to any of those who said that he did not “shine” and went towards his goal. Jay Cutler is worthy of admiration that he justified all those advances that he generously distributed to him in his youth, and realized his potential. Phil Heath is a real winner of Olympia 2008. In my opinion, the guy has unlimited potential. ” On the eve of Olimpia -2009, many considered Green to be a real contender for the title. But this was supposed to be his first Olympia! 7 weeks before the start, Kai and his coach Oscar Ardon moved to camp to prepare for the tournament. It was a Spartan camp. Green was inspired by the “Rocky” -4 film, in which Rocky Balboa in Siberia was preparing for the match with Ivan Dragh. Kai trained with weights twice a day, he did aerobics twice a day, and once again he practiced posing.
Despite the titanic efforts, Kai Green finished fourth. Won Jay Cutler, who showed who is the boss. But does this mean that he and the others from the Big Five have laid down their arms? No matter how wrong! Just to start, they decided to figure out among themselves who is better. And it will happen literally the other day at the Arnold Classic super tournament. I am sure that the hero of our story today, Kai Green, will not become a whipping boy. But what am I talking about? It seems that I completely forgot that Green is the current winner of the “Classic”.
