Life Before Fame
Kai Greene was born as Leslie Kai Greene on July 12, 1975, in Brooklyn, New York, the U.S. He is an American by nationality and belongs to African-American ethnic background.
Born in Brooklyn, New York, he was raised as an orphan in a foster home and residential treatment center. Greene was kicked out of his school and foster home for misbehavior.
His rapid physical growth during high school drew the attention of a seventh-grade English teacher. His teacher introduced him to teenage bodybuilding competitions because his behavior was troublesome in school.
Greene competed in the National Physique Committee (NPC), becoming an enthusiastic bodybuilder and aiming to move into the International Federation of BodyBuilding & Fitness (IFBB). He realized his success in NPC was mixed, due to which he was disappointed though he won the 1999 NPC Team Universe and took a five-year break from competitions.
He made his re-entry in the 2004 NPC Team Universe contest and had a victory in that contest again. This victory qualified him for a professional career as a bodybuilder of IFBB. He started working under preparation coach George Farah and ranked first at New York Pro Championship in 2011.
Kai Greene competed at Mr. Olympia in 2011 where he came third behind Phil Heath and Jay Cutler. This victory qualified him for the 2012 contest held in Las Vegas. He was placed in the second position at Mr. Olympia Competition on September 29, 2012.
He was placed 2nd in Mr. Olympia on September 28, 2013, and ranked 2nd again on September 20, 2014, at Mr. Olympia competition in Las Vegas, both times behind the champion Phil Heath. He won Arnold Classic on March 5, 2016.
Greene worked with director Mike Pulcinella to release Overkill, a documentary that showed his preparation for his first appearance at the 2009 Olympia. He again teamed up with Pulcinella to film the Redemption sequel documenting his training and philosophies for the 2010 Arnold Classic, which he won the second year in a row.
Kai Greene also has featured in the 2013 film Generation Iron, detailing the lead-up and events of the 2012 Mr. Olympia competition.
Greene and fitness model Krystal Lavenne started co-hosting a weekly podcast named Generation Iron in November 2015. In this podcast, they discuss various topics while answering questions sent in by fans.
He traveled to the Chinese province of Guizhou and started filming for the martial arts film Crazy Fist, scheduled for release in 2018.
