Kai Greene usually likes to try new types of workouts. This continued recently, as he gave fans an inside look into a new type of bicep curl he has been trying.
Greene is one of the best bodybuilders competing in the world today. He was the runner up in three straight Mr. Olympia contests, from 2013-2016. However, he has not competed in several years, opting to try his hands at acting instead.
Despite the fact that he has been appearing in various film and tv roles, Greene is still staying fit. So much so, that people were wondering if he would compete at the 2019 Mr. Olympia after Shawn Rhoden was ruled ineligible, and Phil Heath was taking time off. Nevertheless, he instead opted for a lead role in a film, even though he had clearly been training hard.
Part of what makes Kai Greene so special is his unique approaches to training. That is part of the reason he has managed to keep his massive physique. These unorthodox training methods were on full display recently, in an Instagram post that he made. In the video, Kai takes a new approach to doing bicep curls, which is interesting to say the least.
Check it out:
“I do my best to master many movements, consistently challenge myself to get closer and closer to the perfect rep, with everything aligned optimally to recruit the target area, and to achieve the exact feeling I’m looking for.
Take these concentration curls for example, now although they may not look like your typical bicep curl, I can assure you with the right amount of discipline and focus they will give you a run for your money!! Try them out and as always we’re working at a 20, 15, 12, 10, 8 rep scheme.”
As he explains in the post, Greene is using a cable to do his bicep curls. He feels this aligns his body in a way to concentrate the exercise in a specific area that he wants to work. On top of that, he even shared his rep scheme, for those interested in giving this a try for themselves.
Kai Greene continues to be one of the most interesting characters in all of bodybuilding. It is unclear when or if he will compete again. However, one thing is for sure, the sport is not the same without him.
