Lee Haney Bodybuilding Workout Routine

Lee Haney Workout

Lee Haney is without a doubt one of the all-time top bodybuilding pros in bodybuilding's 120 year old history. His physique, his massive size, is unprecedented. His total Mr. Olympia wins has only been matched, never broken, by the great Ronnie Coleman.

Lee explains that over the years he has seen what type of training works best for him. Training 3 days on and 1 day off is what he has used to develop that solid, thick muscle that he dominated the bodybuilding world with for 8 years. Lee explains that the 3 on, 1 off routine gives the same body-part 3 days rest between workouts, training with 70% to 90% of his maximum weight.

He splits his workout doing chest and arms on his first day, legs on the second day and then back and shoulders on the third day. 4th day is rest day, and then he starts again. Lee trained calves and abs every day using the following sets and reps.

Standing Calf Raises 6 X 15-20 reps
Seated Calf Raises 3-4 X 15-20 reps
Vertical Leg Raises 4 X 15-20 reps
Incline Sit-ups 4 X 15-20 reps
Seated Leg Raises 4 X 15-20 reps
