Kai Greene: A Day in the Life

Havent had a chance to watch it yet, but looks pretty interesting.

He seems like a smart mothertrucker.

On another note, he and that Julian chick should shoot a porno. Or at least Julian should, starting with a scene of her deadlifting.

Kai does seems like a really nice, cool dude. But that chick isn’t really attractive.

I had to stop watching; endless repetition of every single idea is no sign of a great mind.

emm… i only watched his videos in segments/interviews. Had some pretty good ideas about mind-body connection and his approach to life is slightly more sophisticated than other bocybuilders, don’t you agree?

Ifbb Training vids are great pre workout fuel

I found his mind quite interesting. He was anything but your run of the mill bodybuilder.

Lol - fugly porn is the best kind.

finally got a chance to watch all 3 parts, and it was pretty interesting. Nice to see someone who doesnt perpetuate the stereotypes and is humble despite the success.

err yeah.

When a camera is rolling anyone can be seen as humble/great/intelligent/thoughtful/sophisticated/romantic.

What happens off camera is where the meat is. Such examples like Arnold, who knew what he was like off camera if all you ever saw was him in the movies?

Same with every other actor, BB’er, powerlifter and strongman. Dont take what you see as gospel because they look and sound great for the cameras.

I think it’s weird that you’re using Arnold as an example. I think Pumping Iron was actually pretty revealing about his character. He came off as a self-aggrandizing womanizer in that movie, and it seems like that’s relatively accurate, given what we now know about him.

Yeah Arnold came across as arrogant as hell on camera lol. All the early interview type stuff I’ve seen with Kaz he was real arrogant as well. I get what you’re saying, but we really don’t know one way or the other if Kai was being disingenuous on camera, and the examples you used almost prove the opposite point.

I’d be more inclined to think that he wasn’t given the fact that he still goes to be coached on posing and keeps his old apartment and things like that.

I think he has a very slow, drawn out way of saying something very simple that every other bodybuilder says as well. He may choose his words a bit differently, but the things he’s advocating for are no different than anyone else in bodybuilding, IMO.

I’m not saying he’s wrong, and I’m not saying I dislike the guy for it, but choosing different words and bloviating over the same simple concepts that made every other successful bodybuilder successful is not sign of a great mind, I think is what justmatt was eluding to.

I dunno man. I’ve never seen another bodybuilder who turned on all the burners in his shitty apartment to make it 120 degrees and has the haircut of one of those Predator aliens.

The guy is certainly eccentric, no doubt about that. I don’t take that as a sign of a great mind, or even above average mind to be honest.

Fair enough. All I said though was that I found his mind quite interesting. Which I certainly do lol. I didn’t even mention the hip-hop dance posing.

THe thing is, we are never truly just “ourselves”. Every action and thought we have are bounced off of external stimulus, even alone. Sure we might act different in front of cameras vs alone in our room vs in front of dad vs gf, but IMO of these sides of us are still US…no side is truer than others. That’s how I look at it anyway.
