Thread: Lee Haney

Anyone else think lee haney is the most underrated bodybuilder. I think he is in the top three of all time, better than arnold and ronnie. He had no gut when he was on stage breathing and he didnt look like a cartoon character. His back was unbelievable. He is never mentioned. Just curious of others input about him.

Yes, the 8 time Mr. Olympia (you know, the guy who everyone proclaimed was the best in the world at the time) is underrated.

Underrated by who?
I never heard that anywhere... Lee was awesome, but IMO
he never took his genetics to the limit, he didn't have to...
No one really pushed him hard enuf and please do go talking
about lee labrada or gaspari... His biceps and legs could have
been much better, but the rest of his physique was as good
as it gets...

No one had the "lat flare" of Haney - especially in the front double bi shot. I don't believe he was underrated. However, I think he took a different marketing approach with his bb career and his future in general than say Arnold.
I believe Robby Robinson was underrated. He is an uncrowned Mr. O in my book.

that is true about robby robinson he looked great.
i think i may have said it wrong. what i meant was every other olympia is mentioned all the time and always compared (sergio, arnold, dorian, ronnie, franco) i just think lee was as good as them for his time.

Agreed. I dunno... maybe he wants his post bb career to be lowkey?
Here's some very underrated shots!
