If the IFBB handbook was followed to the "T", Flex, Shawn, Kev, Chris, and even Nasser would all have a Sandow. Cutler would never have won, Ronnie would have won his 9th...
John Sherman would have won more shows. Milos would have won some. And Mike Francois would have placed higher and or won shows. And Flex with is obvious synthol usage would have been DQ'd.

Haney's torso outdistanced his arms...not by much, but he needed to "stimulate" his arms more.

If you looked at him with his arms outstretched, his chest, delts all overpowered his arms. Making them look small. He had "big" arms no doubt, but in certain poses he looked a guy who was all torso with middleweight arms.

You'd have too go way back to the early 1970s to find another O with that sort of Mass, Taper, and Waist size Oliva in those years would of been in the 28-30inch waist range @ 235-240lbs

Not quite undefeated. Samir Bannout beat him in 1983. That makes him 8 of 9 at the Olympia, the second-greatest winning percentage of all time, behind Larry Scott (2 for 2).

But, he was indeed the "Awesome One". A lot of pros feel he hadn't been given his due, because the publishers can't get Arnold off the brain. King Kamali said, at the 2004 Olympia they did a video of all the Olympia winners. While Arnold got the largest applause from the audience, Haney got most applause from the BODYBUILDERS.

look above, and look at vids---his massive torso makes his arms look small, and the lack of fullness or "hang" to his triceps.

I think he "looked" better than Ronnie, if he had Ronnie's arms, Haney would be the best Mr. O of all time, bar none.
His chest was huge, wide lats, small waist, good legs, and good calves.

Truth brother, nothing but truth.

Having said that i get the feeling that Dorian and Ronnie pushed the boundaries with their health far more than Lee ever did, who knows what he might have looked like had he had a touch of the downs and didn't limit himself.

Yep. Although Arnie and Mike had bigger looking arms, you've got to think of the weight Haney was carrying in relation to his arms, and the fact he was quite lanky looking, this will all make the arms appear smaller. Oh and I believe Mike said his were 18 and 3/4's (which would sound right at 215 lbs as mine are around that at 225lbs.)  ;D

But once Dorian came along, it was lights out, game over. Haney knew this and rightfully stepped aside.

Haney was at his all time best in 1991 but I agree there's no way he could've beaten Yates a year later. Some people feel that Yates should've beaten Haney in 1991. I personally think it could've gone either way especially now when I watch the video of the show. Haney has the look of defeat on his face at the end.

Haney was at his all time best in 1991 but I agree there's no way he could've beaten Yates a year later. Some people feel that Yates should've beaten Haney in 1991. I personally think it could've gone either way especially now when I watch the video of the show. Haney has the look of defeat on his face at the end.

No.

Since the mid 70's i have always been a huge Arnold fan, no other bodybuilder had what he had for a total package. Amazing build huge and ripped and his drive likability and charisma where and still have been unequaled or matched. He was never defeated as Mr o and it was widely speculated that had he wanted he could have held every title from 1970 to near 1984..................th e dawn of Lee Haney.
    Lee Haney in my opinion had probably the most flawless build of any Mr O before or since. When he ruled he epitomized the height of bodybuilding to the score of how far one could go without looking like a blob of shit like so many since him. Every muscle group of Haneys seemed to be cut from granite, he had the mass and yet still cut to shreds. Although Arnold to me is still the greatest in terms of overall accomplishments and what he has done for the sport like non other, Lee had the better build.

Just under 6ft, 250lbs, conditioned and the ability to do a vacuum. In 83 samir displayed the best back yet on a olympia stage, and haney took it to yet another level

How would've yates and ronnie stacked up against haney if they were competing in the 80s against him? I give it to haney

I met him his cycle was insane! he went on long ass cycles with alot of tren for extended periods.
Not only tren but the man loved halotesten for long periods and anadrol. most people use anadol just to jumpstart a cycle. Haney used anadrol 6months out of the year,and tren almost all year

I have the 1990 Olympia recorded from TV and all I can say is Haney was completely off that year. He looked like he was competing in the off-season. When he hits the rear double biceps pose during the posing round the commentator asks Frank Zane if he can see some fat in Haney's back and replies there is a little looseness in the lower back. Both Frank Zane and the commentator sound surprised when Haney is announced the winner. Zane said he thought it was Lee Labrada's year and thought he should've been the winner.

No shit, that was Lee's year, he was the only one who brought it all together. But all of the modern O's have had gifts. So it's nothing unusual.

Haney is undefeated as Mr. O, he never lost his crown.

Neither did Yates, Schwarzenegger, Scott, or Columbu (and, if you want to split hairs, Dickerson). But, I don't think you'd quite put them, at least not Scott or Columbu, in the same category. And Scott never lost at an Olympia, period.

You'd have too go way back to the early 1970s to find another O with that sort of Mass, Taper, and Waist size Oliva in those years would of been in the 28-30inch waist range @ 235-240lbs

Pish pash. 30" waists. That is a moderately petite female waist. Not something for the ultra muscular male. I mean, Jesus Christ. Think for a second.

Haney was indeed one of the greats.

Can someone explain this to me, because I just don't get it.

Why are today's pros such garbage?

1. Simply a lack of prime specimens in the gene pool (ala Haney, Arnold, etc.)?

2. Laziness ... don't want to train as hard and rely too much on drugs?

Regardless, shouldn't we still see a few stand out pros who look like guys in the past?

Haney was good for his time, and his record can't be argued with. Good bodybuilder, pleasing physique, and a great family man.

But once Dorian came along, it was lights out, game over. Haney knew this and rightfully stepped aside.

A little revisionist history here?

Yates came along and Haney beat him, straight up. He didn't step aside for anything. The only thing left for him to accomplish was to break Arnold's record. Once he did that, there was nothing else left.

I liked haney, and would've loved to see labrada take it

But, only guys in shape were shawn and christian. Since christian had a very poor lower body, and ray looked fantastic, that was shawn rays year.

Plus benfatto looked much better than a very off gaspari, yet placed behind him

Thanks nj, yeah i'm getting my years mixed up. There were a few guys who didn't get their dues. Clairmonte looked insane as an amateur, he lost a bit of sharpness after he went pro.

Labrada could and some fans (myself included) thought shouldve won it in 89

90 I gotta say Ray

Benfatto looked very good, but nowhere near as great as 90 in 80s, but 91 he came 7th and that year he was fantastic building up to the olympia, just missed his peak, bigger and better than ever

But haney was haney and time ran out for smaller guys post 1990, anyone under. 220 stood no chance,

1990 was the drug tested Mr. O and Haney trailed Labrada going into the posing round and still won. Mike Christian actually looked the hardest, fullest onstage, almost like he circumvented testing. It was close, but Haney edged Labrada, even though he was down about 20 lbs from his normal competition weight. Both looked a little soft.

In 91, testing was removed and Haney crushed Labrada. In 91, Haney's back was absurd.

That's how I remember it..... :o

Labrada was off, but looked better than haney

Haney was big but smaller 230 as opposed to 250, and soft

Ray was on, skin was tight and dry, full

Bannout looked like he decided to enter that morning

Gaspari was nowhere near his best

Benfatto looked great as always, but under 180 at 5'6", he got outmassed

Now, the Dorian that mutated in 1993 was the beginning age of high dose HGH, insulin, roids, and who knows what else. Absolute fucking beast. The games changed in 1993. Amazingly, besides Ronnie, nobody has come close to DY in 1993. He was a shadow of himself after the injury. In 1993 he was damn near perfect  ;D

The only difference btw those two pics is that he's in serious conditioned shape in the second pic, also he may have lost a bit of leg size as well, otherwise he's the same

Don't know 1988, but 87 at World Champs he was a middleweight, so 176 or under, looked very similar

1990 he was 172

1991 he was 187

(No schmoe)

Even though Haney was the daddy for 8 years he would not have been winning the Olympia after 1991 without an xmas tree, striated glutes, hamstrings and better calf development. I'm sorry but it would not have happened.

I've always thought that's what made him smart, knowing when to bow out gracefully, and on top

IMO what did he have to prove? He beat Arnold record.
If Haney had conpeted during Yates era with the same drugs and everything else, Haney would have beat him then too. Same goes if hed conpeted in Ronnies era.

IMO, if you put anyone in haney's era, he wins

And i can imagine him in yates' era, but the full on total chemical warfare, incl slin and seo of the 00s, is difficult to see him doing well. How would haney have looked with a gut?

lee's back condition in the 80s and early 90s never reached dorian's back hardness at its best so it's difficult to imagine haney was going to present a bigger and better version if he kept competeing in dorian's era.. i think the extra weigh was going to take more from his condition.. even in 91 when lee's back was better than dorian's still dorian's was harder..

also haney's very best was in 1991 and dorian's best was in 1993 so we are not talking about differnt times,.. only 2 years!!.. what superior drugs appered in these 2 years!!!.. and dorian of 93 could esily beat haney of 91..

Slin, larger doses of synthetic gh, seo, larger doses of anabolics

I'm not kidding myself, haney obviously took a shitload of whatever he could anabolic wise, and probably experimented with growth

He was less tan 5% better than 1991. 1993 is where Dorian became Dorian. 1997 was when Dorian left the building as he knew his time was short.


1993 was the end for bodybuilding. Haney was the last champion that wasn't bloated. Dorian lacks the detail to beat Haney, although his back is probably better.

You give Haney GH, Tren and Masteron you are looking at a different physique.

I would use the word "didn't" rather than "never". That latter tends to suggest that he had more than one opportunity.
