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.


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.

I don't care how big and bloated todays champs are. They would look like crap with their big waist standing next to Lee Haney.

Wasn't his weight around 250lbs? His arms had to be bigger than that. Most bodybuilders who are around 220 have 18 inch arms.

arnold's arms in contest condition were just over 19 inches, metzer's were a tad over 18 and a half inches, and zane's arms were under 17 inches

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.)  Grin

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.

You guys and your arm fetish
Hanging tricep
I think his arms were fine not his standout body part but he looks balanced to me

Shakes head
Do realise the size of the a is secondary to the shape its the shape of the arm primarily that makes them look big or small proportionately speaking

Yep. It's also about limb length also. I've got similar sized arms to my training partner but mine look larger because he's got gorilla arms.

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.

False.  He had decent calves for a brother.  Ronnie had subpar calves prior to enhancing them.

It's obvious that this guy Wiggs is a racist bastard.

Agreed. Although I prefer Haney's physique to Yates' (no homo)

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.
