  • Crazy thing is, dexter jackson was probably already 16 yrs old and buff as fukk during the production of this video, which coukd be a 32 yr old video….and dexter is still an elite pro bodybuilder lol. Dexter is making the world age sloowww

  • Avevo da poco compiuto 18 anni, e riuscì grazie a mio padre a realizzare un sogno, vedere dal vivo un mr olympia �� un giorno indimenticabile

  • Lee had one of the best posing routines and one of the most aesthetic physiques of that era. Its a shame that the mass monsters won over him, Makkawy, Paris and Benfatto. Look at what the game has now become: HGH.

  • This guy is super buff and still will look tinny to today’s bodybuilding standarts…well, bodybulding just went the wrong way, instead of building proportioned and pleasing looking physiques its the monsters era… and they think this philosophy is helping to get more fans to this sport… I really don’t understand it… I will rather do bodybuilding to look like Frank Zane or Lee Labrada than to look like Jay Cutler or Ronnie Coleman…mad society…

  • good gracious holy molly! If I could be in this guy’s shoes for 1 day I’d be in the bars shirtless pickin up as many chicks as I could.

  • Just wow! Talk about a balanced and proportioned physique. All body parts equally developed. This didn’t happen by accident. You have to really be smart about your training to get this kind of perfection. But on top of all that the posing is masterful. It reveals the beauty of the male body….a sculpture come to life. Absolutely love and miss this kind of posing. The open hand poses are never seen anymore. Bravo Lee Labrada!

  • Lee, in my opinion you without a doubt had the total package of mass, symmetry, and being ripped. You were the best poser with the best posing routines. This is what bodybuilding should be! I too am 5’6” tall but you inspired and motivated me to go on and win the 1992 Mr. North Carolina Lt. Weight Class. “As You Think, So Shall You Be”. Right Lee? Many Great Memories!

  • He was not a sell out. I mean he never fell into a mass game. I’m sure he could have but kept it an art rather than a game of size.

  • What he did to get such an amazing body, with size and definition for his height is amazing. I am also 5′ 6″. Only difference is that I look nowhere near like this man. I’m looking at his videos for mass training arms, biceps, shoulders, triceps, and chest from a few years past.

  • Back when people had nice waists and didn’t have distended abdomens.
    They guys of today are big, but there is no aesthetics in bodybuilding anymore, it’s all about how much of mutant you can be.

  • I have never and I do mean NEVER seen a perfect bodybuilder in my entire life with the exception of LEE LABRADA he is simply complete.

  • el mejor posando, el mejor en musculatura balanceada, el mejor en genética, el mejor en proporción, simplemente Lee Labrada…yessss

  • Now thats what I call a PERFECT body. Perfect symmetry, Perfect shape to the muscles, perfect posing ability, perfect classical lines, perfect physique overall. very compact and aesthetic. This is what a Mr Olympia should really look like. This type of body is functional meaning you can wear jeans, jog, swim, all those normal activities and yet the developed muscles and the cardiovascular system enhances those activities. Nowadays the so called bodybuilder’s just look for mass and no attention is paid to being an actual bodybuilder. The focus is to be the biggest human being on earth with the biggest gut like Phil “The Gut” Heath’s.

  • Lee Labrada and Frank Zane, two of my all time favorites! Mass with extreme class. Not that bloated look with those pregnant distended bellies. I find myself following the Mens Physique competition more than the regular bodybuilding these days.

  • thank you mr labrada you have  been my idol during my teenage;  when bodybuilding seems to be an art,,,,there was you rich gaspari lee haney shawn ray momo and others:for me that was the golden age of BB,,,,called now ”'(”the old school) today i am 43 and i return back to gym  after 20 years it is really wonderful to see my body transformation using my ”old school” workout…..a wonderful feeling.ONCE AGAIN thank you for hope that you gave….and still  iam your old fan from morocco;;;;

  • that final speech has been with me since I 1st saw this in 1989….motivational and still true 30 years later now that I have my own son it’s means even more….. Be someone your children look up to and never down so when you pass the torch over they continue onward and upwards!! Isn’t that what life is about for the majority!! Haney…. still in my Fav 5 of all time.

  • The only thing I ever thought that the great Lee Haney needed was bigger arms. I thought they looked a touch too small for his massive back.

  • I remember reading Haneys interview in flex in the late 80s where he said he has never taken steroids ����
    I even remember the line, it went something like ‘ Lee Haney is not the product of steroids’

  • Lee has always been someone to look up to.  Always classy, always professional and always grounded.  His example is what has kept me intrigued with bodybuilding for years.  Well done Lee!

  • Lee was such an amazing bodybuilder. He was born to be a champion. Note how deliberate each rep is performed. Lee was concerned with contraction, not just throwing the weight up.

  • I think most consider Coleman to b the greatest because no one ever really did wat Ronnie did, who do u kno doing 800lb deadlifts or lifting the type of weight that Ronnie did 5 and a half weeks out of mr. Olympia? I’m pretty sure Coleman matched Haney for 8 mr Olympia’s and was another level of size and strength in comparison to all others before and even after

  • i know this is 1989, but in 1990, Lee won the Olympia….. the show was drug-tested, and haney was nowhere near hsi 89 form…. oh well, more weider politics

  • What is this Labrada!!!! you were insane I hope to bring you out from the video, some thing crazy this awesome body it is exactly as you said in the begging of the clip, great man Lee we hope if BB get back to this great bodies.

  • lee has to talk about racist crap with that KKK march, give me a break.and he talks about him being better than ARNOLD, guess what LEE,if it wasnt for arnold u would be working at home depot or somewhere. cant these guys just keep it bodybuilding related?

  • Such an artistic poser! And graceful as well, only a small number of bbers can still move like this, these days they can barely even walk! Now this guy, this… is what a bodybuilder should look like!

  • Notice how Lee’s biceps & triceps appear much fuller here, compared to how they typically looked during contests.  Lee was one of those bodybuilders whose upper arms seemed to show the effects of pre-contest dieting more than his other body parts.  Either way though, he remains my all-time favorite.  

  • Cemil Gul Can you upload the complete video of Mr. Olympia 1989? I’m italian, the only Mr. Olympia in Italy was Rimini 1989 but it’s impossible to find

  • Even a champion like Haney gets up after his set and immediately racks his weight. Learn that you over-egoistic morons at local planet fitness.

  • And this exactly why he is one of the bodybuilders I always look to for inspiration. He was one of the greats, and I find him to be greatly under appreciated. Not only did he have one of the greatest physiques of all time, he is still in great shape, and stays motivating people with advice. Lee, you’re a hero of mine, and thank you for everything you do for the sport of bodybuilding.

  • Dude, you have some of the best proportions of all time. Body-building needs you to speak up and fight for this standard. FIGHT HARD!!! We are behind you!!!

  • Aesthetically beautiful physique! I miss such bodybuilders… Frank Zane was phenomenal! Nowadays everyone just looks freakishly huge, there are no streamlined physiques. Now they class such as Fitness modeling…

  • Pure aesthetic. This is the kind of posing BB needs. No bikini-class-boys in shorts just hanging round at the same event. They can do another event.

  • Truly,something like this as the representative of bodybuilding would get more people interested in it. That means more money,IFBB! There would be no need to eliminate
    a “freak show division,” mind you,but this or something like it would give bodybuilding a better,and I repeat,more profitable image.

  • According to the comment section dorian yates was the first body builder to ever use PED’s. No wonder america has fallen to 20th in the world in education


  • Great and perfect physic remember Lee when he came in Dunkerque with his wife for a seminar at bodybuilding center, Mr vandezande give him a suitcase for present, good memories and a big gentleman always smiling and kind with his fans, miss you Lee, don’t see that today, a lot of champions don’t have that. 

  • His upper chest striations and his cobra shaped lats. Not even Ronnie had these qualities. Yes I know Ronnie has the best back of all time but Haneys taper is just awesome.

  • Huge, Huge Lee Haney fan!!! People say 90’s was the golden era of body building…I feel that the 80’s was just as good during Haney’s reign. Great variety with differing aesthetics without the prolific gh and insulin use, and with an ever growing cast of stars throughout. Physiques that real people would like to look like:)

  • :35 seconds show that bloated guts didn’t start with Dorian Yates, Dorian’s gut was just massive, but Lee Haney had a bloated gut too. He doesn’t look like the 250 lbs he says that he was during those years. The arms and legs weren’t big, the chest was solid but not the size of Arnold’s chest, the lats were wide for the 80s, but i don’t see 250 lbs. Maybe part of it was that gut.

  • Far the BEST era in Bodybuilding, look how graceful the competitors are and the balance of muscle, symmetry, and posing, never can be repeated these days!!!!!

  • I was there back in the day with a Group of Germans visting LA, went to the Mr. Olympia and training in Gold Gym for 10 days, great memories, talking to Mike Christian (who was my favorite). Seeing the other great bodybuilders doing photo shoots. Amazing!! We even had a private appearence by Ralf Moller the night before the show, he was coming from Arnold’s house,!! How cool is that. I am still training hard at 62.

  • Lee, I wish I had all that time on stage 😉 Absolute superb posing mate displaying a beautiful artistic physique. Bring back the classics. The best physiques of all time hands down!

  • Hi Lee i barely heard about you this day watching a documentary! God you seem to be one of the most humble bodybuilders of the era! I am a young bodybuilder, i am going to compete in a show in September in LA! And if you don’t mind I’m going to try to imitate done of your poses, because they emanate art Lee!! This is bodybuilding at its best! The last bodybuilder that had proportion, kindness, originality, and other things from what I’ve watched; it’s you Mr Lee! I hope i could meet you one day!

  • We will never know how massive Lee Haney could have really gotten. He looks really massive here, but he lost some of his conditioning, he got it wrong again the next year, but in his year after that he was on point. Nothing could beat him that year.

  • Sounds like a really decent guy. I wonder if he retired because he knew what type of drugs he’d have to take to continue to be competitive.

  • Too bad Labrada competed during the “Era of Mass”, he, like Flex Wheeler and Shawn Ray will always be known as uncrowned Mr. Olympias.

  • When I think about the greatest poser of all time I think of Lee L / Mohamed Makkawy / Ed Corney / Shawn R Just Incredible. Thanks for the Video

  • What Lee says in the beginning is so true. Bodybuilding should be about the most perfect physique, not the most massive. With this philosophy, bodybuilding would return to the art form it once was

  • Lee Haney just outsized anyone that stood next to him people always criticized Lee for his smaller arm development and smaller calf development but here’s the thing those body parts flowed well with his body which made him look more symmetrical it wasn’t like someone as of Mike Matarazzo who I was a fan of as well his arms were so big that they dominated his chest and his shoulders which didn’t flow well with the rest of his body when he hit certain poses which made him look less symmetrical that’s how Lee beat Dorian he came with a lot mass but Dorians arms were also a week point for him which made him look less symmetrical because it didn’t flow well with the rest of his body like his back in a back double bicep pose his back dominated his arms. Lee on the other hand even when he hit a front  double bicep pose up against people with better arm development and possible bigger his back or his chest accommodated his arms and weren’t over powering to his physique a long with the mass he had he had symmetry and balance and that’s why in my opinion he was unbeatable in his time

  • That was Mike Christian another great one with him. Before internet i used to wait for the next MuscleMag to come out every month and i would read every word like a bible. Great clip bodybuilding has gone to shit nowadays. I dont even really follow it anymore.

  • I love his attitude so humble so mellow and that’s one of the reasons why he’s still around today! God bless you Lee Haney keep rocking big daddy!!����

    Arnold may be back in his new movie Killing Gunther, but his twins Rich and Dallas will not. Enough is Enough.
    Extra Extra… Arnold’s real life Twins die this past week. Dallas McCarver and Rich Piana. And Ronnie Coleman, a survivor thus far is on the two twins called crutches, living in denial at the Olympia after the funeral. Life Imitates Art, Fiction becomes Non-Fiction, Image to Reality. Arnold Schwarzenegger the real life mad scientist who began his genetic experiment in a lab ends up producing self-destructive monsters like in Frankenstein experiment that went bad. Now he wants to distance himself and blame the bodybuilders when he was the father of BIGGER IS BETTER MENTALITY. He opened Pandora’s Box like he did with his maid’s box and now tries to cover up his illegitimate legacy. Isn’t that what a lot of fathers do when they produce illegitimate twins like Dallas and Rich who took Arnold’s genetic experiment to far. Arnold opened Pandora’s Box and out came all the evil drugs with it. Arnold you can’t put the Genie back in the bottle, your illicit affair with drugs backfired. When I watch Arnold and his twin Franco training today at 70 it is almost as comical as his movie Twins. He knows nothing about proper training without steroids which is why he and Franco looks so old now. What happened to Rich and Dallas is truly a tragic story with a tragic ending just to be like their chemist father Arnold their mentor. Arnold the doctor started carrying the medicine bag to the gym and the bag kept getting bigger and bigger, not because of proper training, but because of improperly prescribed medicine. There is nothing funny about losing Arnold’s Twins. And now the mad alchemist from Austria wants to go from action hero on the screen as the Terminator, to reality and actually harm the President of the United States (Trump) in reality. Kids, you do not need Arnold’s steroids to get big and strong. John I came out of one of the most important gyms in the history of bodybuilding at Quads and no one was running to their doctors. Been in the sport since 1958, never heard a guy talk about his doctor, they were few and far between not to mention they could hardly put food on the table let alone expensive doctors. Many steroids came in from Mexico and they were not sent in by doctors in the 70’s. The sport has heard enough of these fables about the old days. “Oh what a web we weave when we practice to deceive.” Comment about John De Fendis contrasting their low dosage and getting it from doctors during the so-called Golden Era. Another mythographer from the old days. I’m so tired of hearing the same story over and over you can’t lift heavy after a certain age. What they are saying kids is their bodybuilding and lifting heavy ended when they ended taking steroids. This whole interview with Doug Brignole on Ric Drasin’s program is Sophistry, a pseudo intellect or guru about bodybuilding. Training to be big all your life without ever taking steroids is true “science” which preserves your youth not steals it like steroids. Two bodybuilding legends die the same week from steroids and they still live in denial. Sad and tragic. I’m training just as hard and heavy at 70 as I was at 33. Some of you kids may be saying, Keith if what you say is true, then your sexual performance should be the same as well without drugs or Viagra. I’m 70 and my wife is thirty and she asked me that same question. Answer: Your only problem honey will not be getting it “up,” it will be getting it “down.” We are about to have our baby girl Destiny Blake. Training naturally, healthy eating, fasting often to cleanse system that effects pituitary which resets the youth button. I was recently on world renown Dr. Jason Fung’s blog with NFL player Terry Crew discussing the topic of intermittent fasting because I was the oldest living bodybuilder that used this system all my life for almost 50 years. He said I exploded the myth that “fasting burns muscle.” Fasting burns fat, not muscle I told him. Kids if you are using drugs you still need to do Intermittent Fasting. Even low dosage argument is fallacious because it speeds up the aging process tied to pituitary gland, something nobody talks about. Arnold and Franco have that Neanderthal look from the disease of acromegaly, (abnormal growth of the hands, feet, and face, caused by overproduction of growth hormone by the pituitary gland.) They may be off the juice and use HRT or TRT to make their bodies look better, but it is TOO LATE to turn back the aging process from steroids. Example of aging from steroids, Doug! I feel like calling Doug dad since he wants to give all this fatherly ill-advice. Doug and Ric say they don’t know any one that has died as a result of steroids in spite of these 10. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5nczy4HVCoQ This is what you call incontrovertible evidence. Sports Illustrated front cover about Lyle Alzado on 7/8 1991. I lied. I lied to you. I lied to my family. I lied to a lot of people for a lot of years when I said I didn’t use steroids. I started taking anabolic steroids in 1969, and I never stopped. Not when I retired from the NFL in 1985. Not ever. I couldn’t, and then I made things worse by using human growth hormone, too. You know what you call a person like Doug, another father of steroids from the Golden Era that say their is no evidence of people dying of steroids? A FOOL! We have a bodybuilding cemetery now of fools because of this ill-logic. Keep lying while their dying. A person who keeps lying and denying about the science of bodybuilding in sociology is called a psychopath. Arnold keeps bashing modern day bodybuilders because he is the only one that can use steroids to get big and famous and then because of his insecurities and how pathetic he looks off of drugs has to switch to other synthetic drugs to PUMP HIM UP like HRT or TRT. He just can’t give them up in any form. Its Hollywood on steroids, a fake system built on entertainment which means diversion in military terms. Another George Bush lie like bringing democracy to Middle East. ” I am pleased to announce the appointment of Arnold Schwarzenegger as Chairman of the President’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports, and I challenge him to raise the consciousness of all Americans on the importance of good health through physical fitness.” Perhaps George Bush was going to have Arnold teach the kids the proper way to smoke a cigar, or like Bush’s buddy Clinton in the right usage of a cigar, and his message would be kids if you want to get big, strong and famous like me, these are the steroids to take to achieve my success.” Arnold’s drug culture has put more bodybuilders in cemeteries like Rich and Dallas because of his lies. What was that famous German quote: “Tell a lie often enough and people will believe THE LIE. ” Kids we lost Rich, Dallas and Lyle Alzado, before you continue to believe the guru’s from the Golden Era that still say no evidence that steroids kill, please listen to Lyle Alzado’s warning. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! If this death rate keeps up they will have to have a black wall like Viet Nam Veterans Memorial at Muscle Beach with all the veterans names engraved who have died from steroid wars around the world (now Kuwait) to be the biggest freak. At the top of that wall I want a famous quote from two bodybuilding legends Ric and Doug from Golds and Worlds gym. “NOT A SINGLE PERSON HAS DIED OF STEROIDS USAGE.” Steroids is the gateway drug to all others, and you cannot separate them anymore then you can a kite from its tail, or the shoe from its tongue. They are inseparable. Its called “stability science” in aerodynamics. The kite is the steroids and all the other drugs is the tail to help the kite fly to a higher level. No Kite No Tail.The first persons name on that wall I want to be: MR. DENIAL. So much for these living legends.

    Ecclesiastes 12:1 Don’t let the excitement of youth cause you to forget your Creator. Honor him in your youth before you grow old and say, “Life is not pleasant anymore.” Why? Psalms 103:5 Who satisfieth thine old age with good things; So that Thy youth is renewed like the eagle. I kept my promise to Him and He kept his promise to me. That is better counsel then asking a drug guru to argue over what evil drug kills more, cigarettes and alcohol vs. deaths from steroids. The issue is health, not the evil of which drug kills more. Some sociologist.

  • One of a kind. Amazing physique and a first rate intellect, quite a rare combination. Lee was definitely an uncrowned Mr. Olympia. The physiques of the 80’s and 90’s arguably had the best combination of mass and symmetry. Bodybuilding needs more role models like Lee Labrada. Mass with class!

  • The love between lee and mike is obvious despite their banter. Society was different then. Today we’re all taught to hate our rivals and competitors.

  • Smooth moves! The guys today couldn’t hold a candle to a lot of the old skool guys when it comes to presentation and posing routines. It’s a lost art of displaying your physique to your advantage. Look at so many of the guys today who just lumber from one side of the stage to the other throwing random poses.
