Greene has often discussed the "mind-muscle connection". He quotes that "The mind-muscle connection is the number one factor in training. You develop it over time by posing your muscle, and also by paying close attention to how your muscles feel when you work them. Eventually, you get to where your mind can read the feedback your muscles are providing, and your muscles can react to the stimulus your mind is providing. Practice posing between sets or anytime. And you can actually feel your muscles working throughout your sets. Eventually the mind and muscles do speak the same language and communicate back and forth.
Kai has shared some of the most inspirational and motivational quotes . He feels that unless a person has enough drive in him , he can never achieve his goal . To have a good enough drive is very essential for achieving success. He suggests imagination is much stronger than knowledge and Dreams are more powerful than facts. If you have a dream and work towards achieving the same with a firm drive , it is only then that you will achieve the desired success.
He quotes that many a times people with horrid pasts turn out to be the ones who can create the best future for themselves just by self motivation and chasing their dream judiciously.
