Generation Iron: Natty 4 Life Premiere: Watch the full replay of Mike O’Hearn and Kai Greene’s Instagram live discussion.
Today marked the release of the much anticipated Generation Iron: Natty 4 Life. The fourth film in the Generation Iron documentary series. To mark the occasion, Mike O’Hearn and Kai Greene connected over Instagram Live to discuss the film, natural bodybuilding, and much more! Mike and Kai are just two of the featured athletes that appear in Generation Iron 4. Alongside pro natural bodybuilders Rob Terry, Adiran Pietrariu, Philip Ricardo Jr., Christopher Oketch, Tiffany Stosich, and Alondra Chatman.
Bringing these two bodybuilding legends into the same (virtual) space to talk for an hour discussion is just as electric as you’d imagine. Kai Greene, of course, is never at a loss for words and brings passionate and thoughtful talking points to the table as they dive deep into what it really takes to become a champion bodybuilder. More importantly, they discuss the realities of natural bodybuilding vs enhanced bodybuilding.
Specifically, they discuss the perception by the bodybuilding community at large about natural bodybuilders and how negative commentary has overwhelmed the industry. The internet has brought much more discovery and exposure to bodybuilding – but it also has brought a loud wave of white noise. Aggressive opinions and hateful attacks in comments on social media.
While negativity is not the only force at work here – it’s certainly loud enough to notice. Mike O’Hearn and Kai Greene discuss how they handle negativity that comes from fans. They also try and explore the reasoning behind criticism of natural bodybuilders.
Generation Iron: Natty 4 Life explores these themes deeply. It dives right into the lives of the top pro natural bodybuilders and showcases the hard work, dedication, and focus that goes into being a natural athlete. The film also explores the controversial criticism of natural bodybuilding leagues – such as the accuracy of drug testing and whether or not the athletes on stage are truly natural.
It puts a spotlight on a corner of bodybuilding that rarely gets the same kind of attention seen in the IFBB and NPC leagues. Much like the first Generation Iron film – it brights to light an entire world of excitement, passion, and hard work that any bodybuilding fan would respect.
