American bodybuilding icon Kai Greene is widely recognized as one of the best IFBB Men’s Open competitors to have never won the Mr. Olympia contest. Although he hasn’t competed since 2016, he maintains a high level of personal fitness. In a recent post made on Instagram, Greene showed off his monstrous physique in a guest posing appearance at the 2023 Sheru Classic Pro in New Delhi, India.
Kai Greene found his passion for bodybuilding as a teenager. He emerged as a budding prospect in the mid-2000s when he joined the IFBB Pro League. In 2008, he came out on top of the New York Pro and placed third at the Arnold Classic. Greene dominated the 2009 Arnold Classic to take home gold and rounded off the season with a fourth-place showing at Mr. Olympia. He continued to work his way up the ranks and claimed another Arnold Classic title in 2010.
During his days of competition, Greene developed a fierce rivalry with fellow bodybuilding legend Phil Heath. The seven-time Mr. Olympia kept Greene at bay and outmuscled him for the win in three consecutive events (2012-2014). Greene stopped participating in the competition following his third silver medal and took to the sidelines for a period of time. His final season (2016) saw him clinch three victories at the Arnold Classic, Arnold Classic Australia, and Arnold Classic Brazil.
Greene teamed up with rising Open sensation Blessing Awodibu for a taxing arm workout in July 2022. He mentored ‘The Boogieman’ through the training session focused on building the mind-muscle connection with some of his favorite exercises. Then, Greene partnered with Blessing again for a fierce upper-body workout in preparation for the 2022 Mr. Olympia. The duo went through a challenging shoulder training routine six weeks out from the show.
‘The Predator’ strengthened his partnership with Blessing with a brutal back and hamstrings workout days out of the Olympia contest. He offered his best superset to enhance neurological awareness for improving rear poses.
Earlier this year, Kai Greene opened up about his 15-year-long experience competing as a natural bodybuilder. He stressed the importance of reaching your genetic limit before taking gear and laid out his current diet which can go up to 6,000 calories per day. He also weighed in on the prevalence of TRT use (testosterone replacement therapy), which he considers a steroid.
Greene praised his old foe Phil Heath for his amazing career three months ago. While Kai Greene hasn’t competed in seven years, he left the door open for a potential comeback and made it clear he did not formally retire.
Kai Greene shows off Monstrous Package in guest-posing appearance in India
In a recent Instagram post, Kai Greene looked enormous in a guest-posing appearance at the Sheru Classic Pro in New Delhi, India.
Greene donned his signature superhero-style mask and robe to kick off the guest posing. He went through a series of poses before taking the robe off and continuing his performance.
Kai Greene gave fans a look into his intense shoulder workout routine two months ago. He utilized supersets and trained his back in order to work on a better sense of mind-muscle connection.
Australian bodybuilding veteran Lee Priest called for an Olympia-themed superhero showdown with Greene earlier this month. He recommended performing a skit together at the bodybuilding show to entertain fans while playing characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Greene may not have any plans for a comeback but he could surely give many competitors a run for their money if he decided to return based on the latest update.
