Kai Greene is a verifiable bodybuilding legend. Just ask any longtime fan of the sport, and they’ll tell you about his incredible size and definition. At the peak of his career, he was a favorite at the Arnold Classic and was narrowly edged out by Phil “The Gift” Heath at three Olympias. At his final Olympia in 2014, many thought he deserved the Sandow that went to Heath.
Greene hasn’t appeared on stage since he won the Arnold El Clásico Brazil in 2016, but fans just won’t give up on the possibility that he’ll make a bodybuilding comeback. Greene was even given special permission to compete at the Olympia in 2017, but he passed on the opportunity.
The cycle repeated itself in 2018 when fans seemed convinced he’d make a comeback. Although he still didn’t take to the stage, his fans persistently claim that Greene will dominate the stage if he decides to compete again. And one look at his Instagram will tell you why.
The 43-year-old athlete is still massive, and it’s not hard to imagine him posing onstage alongside the likes of Heath and the new Mr. Olympia, Shawn Rhoden.
Practicing and rehearsing the smallest most minute details will in time uncover who’s been putting in the work and who’s just been working. Think of the body as a canvas, one that’s visually constructed with our minds and put into motion with our direct physical efforts. Whether it’s bodybuilding or another task at hand, start brainstorming about how you can make these tasks a reality. Are you doing everything necessary at all times to be where you want to be?
To top it all off, he’s (jokingly?) alluded to his desire to take on the top names in bodybuilding once again in the weeks since the Olympia. Check out some of the most cryptic posts below.
I’m at a different starting point than I was years ago and many others might be today. In order to polish and fine-tune my physique I’ve had to go away from what is expected or “normal” for others. Years of training and thousands of hours beating on ones craft…gave us proof that the more properly prepared one becomes, the more likely the recognition can be. #ThoughtsBecomeThings
