    "Lee Haney was nothing. My friend is natural and just started lifting two months ago and he's bigger than Haney ever was"... Said no one ever.

    Loved the story by the way

    Lee Haney is one of my favorite bodybuilders ever! Lee has a lot class and has a great physique with a nice mix of thickness and a tiny waist.

    Next, I needed posing trunks. I’d seen them in magazines, but didn’t know where to buy them. So, I went to Kmart and bought a pair of blue underwear with red trim!

    So to get his pro card he first had to win nationals, then the world championship. I guess you could say it was "a bit" harder to become an IFBB pro at that time

    In the 80's when there were just magazines to go by, I used to think what was the big deal with Lee Haney because pictures did not do him any justice. Then I ordered the 1988 Mr. Olympia video tape and from the first callout I was like holy shit!! He dwarfed everybody! He was tall for the average bodybuilder (5'11), but he just had a massive frame. But what really got my attention is when I met him in 1995 at the Arnold Classic. So he was retired for what 4yrs or so, but he was huge!! And he didn't lie about his height, because if anything he was 6'0ft even. Very cool guy too. Always liked Haney & always thought he deserved his wins. Check out his guest posing after his Olympia win in 1991 at the Great Lakes. Massive Guy!!!

    Great read, you can detect Lee's immense positive energy in his writing. Class individual.

    I do not pretend to be redundant so I put the note of humor.

    Haney got much bigger than this picture but I think this is the leanest
    he may have ever been.

    Huge fan of Lee . I graduated from the same High school Lee attended and even worked out at Nautillus Gym. He came to my middle school after he won his 1st Mr Olympia and spoke it was awesome!

    Haney had the greatest mr Olympia physique of all time. I remember a muscle and fitness article on his back (back in 86ish) and the photo of haney's back left me floored. watch youtube and see for yourselves if you doubt me.

    Lee has such a great spirit and inner light so rare in pro bodybuilders these days.
