  Kai Greene Banned from 2015 Mr. Olympia

Kai Greene, considered by many as one of the best professional bodybuilders in the world, has been banned from 2015 Mr. Olympia because of “late registration”.

Greene, one of the most recognizable bodybuilding figures and a veteran for more than two decades, announced his ban in a tearful video on YouTube. Kai Greene did not get into the reasons for the ban but remarked there may be another project in the works of the Mr. Olympia competition. The American IFBB professional bodybuilder was the first runner up (2nd Place) at the 2012, 2013, and 2014 Mr. Olympia competition.

Phil Heath, who defeated Kai Greene in 2013 and 2014, to bag the top spot also emerged victorious at this year’s Mr. Olympia.

According to media rumors, Greene could have asked for a promotional booth for free and this caused him into a standoff with the event coordinators. However, speculations were soon out after a statement placing the blame squarely on Greene was released by Mr. Olympia promoter Robin. It was remarked by Robin that Kai has had his Olympia contract since April but refused to sign it for reasons known only to Kai and added this is the same contract Kai has signed for the past 6 years. The Mr. Olympia promoter added nothing but the dates have changed and there is no truth in the news that Kai Greene was banned from competing as he was sent the contract and he was not even banned from the expo as reported by some.

Immediately after news about Greene’s ban emerged, it was announced by high-ranking official and former Mr. Olympia judge Lee Thompson that he is starting Nspire Physique Champions Global, his own bodybuilding organization, which has already attracted some of the biggest names in the world of professional bodybuilding.

Kai Greene was the favorite to win the competition this year. He had finished second in each of the last three years at the IFBB’s annual Mr. Olympia bodybuilding competition.

Greene, dubbed one of the most inspirational athletes of his time, recently entered into a partnership with Isolator Fitness, Inc. to create Kai Greene Collection that will include a new line of meal management Isobag Lunch Coolers. The 2-time Arnold Classic Champion and star of the critically acclaimed 2013 film Generation Iron, Greene has over 5 million combined fans on his social media platforms.

Kai Greene was introduced to the idea of teenage competition by his seventh grade English teacher. Greene soon became an enthusiastic bodybuilder and competed in the National Physique Committee (NPC). Greene won the 1999 NPC Team Universe and took a break of five years from competitions before he re-emerged into the bodybuilding arena and won the 2004 NPC Team Universe contest. In 2011, Greene started working with preparation coach George Farah. He was placed first in the 2011 New York Pro Championship and his third place win at Mr. Olympia in 2011 qualified him for the 2012 contest in Las Vegas. Greene launched his own supplement brand “Dynamik muscle” in 2015.

  Arnold Schwarzenegger Shares His Views On Anabolic Steroids

@Arnold Schwarzenegger, the former governor of California and the Austrian-born former actor, has no fears or ashamed of using anabolic steroids during his years as a champion body builder.  In fact, we have speculated in the past about what Arnold Schwarzenegger cycles used.

Schwarzenegger had remarked in the past that he has no regrets about using performance enhancing drugs as he used them under the supervision of a doctor and steroids were very much legal at that time. The former seven-time Mr. Olympia however said he would not encourage use of steroids as that will send a wrong message to children but added that he has no problems with sportsmen making use of nutritional supplements and other legal substances for improving their performance.

Born on July 30, 1947 as Arnold Alois Schwarzenegger, the Austrian and American former professional bodybuilder began weight training at the age of 15 and won the Mr. Universe title at age 20 and went on to win the Mr. Olympia contest seven times. Nicknamed the “Austrian Oak” and the “Styrian Oak” in his bodybuilding days, Arnold Schwarzenegger chose bodybuilding over football as a career at the age of 14 and won the Junior Mr. Europe contest while serving in the Austrian Army in 1965.

His first attempt to Mr. Olympia failed when he lost to three-time champion Sergio Oliva in 1969 but won the competition in 1970 to become the youngest ever Mr. Olympia at the age of 23. At the age of 23, the bodybuilder captured his first Mr. Olympia title in New York in 1970. He played the role of Hercules in 1970′s Hercules in New York and was followed by director Robert Altman’s The Long Goodbye (1973) and Stay Hungry (1976) but his rise was primarily attributed to his profile in the bodybuilding film Pumping Iron (1977). In addition to this, Schwarzenegger appeared in the sword-and-sorcery epic Conan the Barbarian in 1982 that was followed by a sequel, Conan the Destroyer in 1984 and then made a huge impact with director James Cameron’s science fiction thriller film The Terminator.

His autobiography/weight-training guide Arnold: The Education of a Bodybuilder was published in 1977 and became an instant hit. In 1977, Schwarzenegger admitted to using anabolic steroids which were legal at that time and said he used the performance enhancing drugs to maintain muscle size while on a strict diet. He added that his use of steroids was for muscle maintenance when cutting up and not for muscle growth.

Schwarzenegger’s personal records include Clean & press – 264 lb (120 kg), Squat – 215 kg (470 lb), Deadlift – 310 kg (680 lb), Clean & jerk – 298 lb (135 kg), Snatch – 243 lb (110 kg), and Bench press – 200 kg (440 lb).

Legacy of Schwarzenegger is commemorated in the Arnold Classic annual bodybuilding competition and he is considered as one of the most important figures in the history of body building. Arnold has presided over many contests and awards shows besides being a prominent face in the bodybuilding sport long after retiring.

Arnold Schwarzenegger lights up OlympicsArnold Schwarzenegger, the governor of California and former bodybuilding great, recently had his way during the torch exchange of the 2010 Games.

Schwarzenegger was invited by Sebastian Coe to the London Games. Coe demonstrated diplomatic behavior when asked if the former Mr Olympia will be the torch bearer.

Shelley Rudman, Britain’s only medalist from the Turin Winter Games four years ago, was the only undisputed choice and was selected at a team reception in downtown Vancouver.

  Pro Bodybuilding – the Joke is almost dead

Professional Bodybuilding (Pro Bodybuilding) has become a joke in the modern world of 2000s. Lets look at the “progress” of Pro bodybuilding to see where this sport went wrong, maybe we can throw up at that point.  The 1st picture (the 2 guys posing) is Ronnie Coleman vs. Jay Cutler, 8 time Mr.Olympia vs. 2 time Mr.Olympia.  Below them, the blond guy, is Wolf, an upcoming pro Bodybuilder from Germany thought to be the next Mr. Olympia.  They all look nasty.  Let’s face it, professional bodybuilding is a joke.  So, let’s use maximum anabolic steroids, Human Growth Hormone, IGF-1 and so on, and get as big as we can, jump on stage and almost break it.  Now let’s check out the last picture, that’s Frank Zane, a pro bodybuilder from the 70s and a 3 time Mr. Olympia, now who looks better, the monsters in the 1st 2 pics or Frank Zane?  that’s the problem.  Today, Mr. Olympia judging is making the sport nastier and nastier.  Instead of getting more mainstream, Bodybuilding and especially Professional Bodybuilding is getting more underground.  if these monsters started being judged based on the frank zane look, 99.9% of them would lose, and this would eventually bring Professional bodybuilding to the level of being somewhat mainstream.  Don’t say it can’t be done, because MMA was made mainstream through proper cleaning up of the sport by the UFC.

  Pumping Iron by Arnold Schwarzenegger

pumping-iron-arnold-schwarzeneggerBy far the best bodybuilding movie EVER made was Pumping Iron by Arnold Schwarzenegger, he made bodybuilding fun and as close to mainstream as it could ever get. Unfortunately, these days, the Ronnie Coleman ‘ s and Jay Cutler ‘s of the sport are making bodybuilding a sideshow joke around the world. Don’t be surprised if Pro Bodybuilding itself dies off completely by the year 2020. Already, the people who go to the Mr. Olympia are either related to the posers, or just some bodybuilder jokers. The attendance is a joke in bodybuilding events all around. And, it has NOTHING to do with anabolic steroids OR human growth hormone (HGH), but all to do with the direction of the sport. If you look at the NFL, there are a ton of steroids and HGH there, but it’s a hugely popular sport. The truth is that the judging in Pro Bodybuilding has become somewhat of a joke lately, and the most nasty looking bodybuilder wins. If you can come on stage at 1000lbs. at 2% bodyfat, you’d take the Mr. Olympia! it’s a joke all around. To save bodybuilding, Mr. Olympia should be split into 2 weight classes, under 210 and over 210lbs., and the judging in this and all other bodybuilding events should be based on symmetry, leanness and shape. The beautiful sculpture that is the human body, not the nasty ass bloated, bulky mofos who step on stage now.
