Ask any iron hurler in the gym which protein source he grows best on and the answer will be practically universal: “I eat chicken because it’s lean, but I get biggest and strongest eating red meat.” Back in the ’70s, when Arnold and Franco were kings – and folks like Purdue didn’t mass-produce chicken breasts yet – red meat was the supreme choice of musclemen worldwide.

KAI’S QUEST CAPTURED IN DVD “A New Breed – Vol. 1 Overkill.”

By Andrew Oye
Apr 8, 2010

The Scoop: Just Announced: IFBB Pro Kai Greene releases his new DVD titled “Kai Greene – A New Breed – Vol. 1 Overkill.” Greene’s first bodybuilding documentary film, ” Overkill” is the first release in the “New Breed” trilogy. The flick follows his inspirational and punishing preparation for the 2009 Mr. Olympia contest.

From his standout physique to his unrelenting dedication and philosophical approach, Greene is one of the most talked-about competitors in modern pro bodybuilding. “Overkill” captures his core, showing the day-to-day struggle of intense training and dieting to reach physical perfection.

The “So What?”: The DVD takes viewers inside Greene’s grueling quest, including 7 weeks of isolation in the desert, that ultimately resulted in a 4th place finish at an Olympia debut many fans wanted him to win. Yet, Greene went on to achieve some redemption with successful defenses of his 2009 Arnold Classic and 2009 Australian Pro titles, winning both shows again in 2010.
Andrew Oye’s verdict: Maybe this new film will give more insight into the world of an enigmatic (some say eccentric) athlete among the new breed of pro bodybuilders.
