Kai Green’s early childhood was not something pleasant to be recalled and cherished. Grown up in foster care, his biological parents are not known and perhaps that could help us understand his unpleasant childhood. During his schooldays, he would fight with his classmates. Right from the beginning, he had to struggle. When he grew up, a lot of times, he had to sleep in the streets as he was homeless.
Kai Greene had a strong and very fast growing physique. Thanks to this natural gift, his teacher introduced him to bodybuilding. The sport provided him with an opportunity to vent his aggression and childhood negativity. This sport provided him with an opportunity to identify his genius.
Having started his career as a pro bodybuilder, he competed in the NPC (National Physique Committee) but his target was to compete for IFBB (International Federation for Body Building n Fitness). In fact, he did compete for that but for unknown reasons, he abandoned the sport.
For almost 5 years ignoring his inner calling and living the life of misery, he restarted his career as a bodybuilder but this time it was going to be a little different. Winning 2004’s NPC Team Universe title, afforded him with a chance to participate in IFBB. He also competed for a number of times for Mr. Olympia but unfortunately always finished second. But he had reservations regarding the Olympic committee for the bodybuilding sport but he never spoke of them, though.
Kai Greene has been making money from so many sources like from show biz and endorsements. Having been endorsed by Flex, he launched his own supplement, Dynamic Muscle. Besides, he kick-started his own training program, P5. Also, he makes some money from his podcasts “Generation Iron” which he started in 2015.
