How to Eat Like a Bodybuilder | Lee Haney | Dieting Tips from 8x Undefeated Mr. Olympia

you can't train like a horse and eat like a bird so that made sense it has kept body fat under control you're able to watch it see the quality of muscle growth which was slower but at the same time you didn't have to eat green beans and tuna fish in order to get cut for a show mr haney many people are here to have a look at you can you tell us something about your training in bodybuilding well first of all my training it consists of training at least six to seven days a week sometimes I trained twice a day and I spend roughly three and a half up to four hours in the gym that's twice a day to two hours in the morning and maybe two hours and afternoon what about your food my food is basically this well rounded meals that consists of quality protein will come from things like chicken eggs fish lentils was used some but for the most part it was those particular type of proteins that was used I did use a lot of powdered protein drinks not a lot of them I would some in the off season but it was mostly food then it was carbohydrates of sweet potatoes was at the top you know beta carotene also high fiber low glycemic index is the perfect energy food and then anabolic properties of sweet potatoes and any type of roots was very very good in highly recommended then as far as greens and veggies and that sort of thing I strongly believed in the use of spinach so I use a lot of spinach in my diet which is the perfect multi mineral complex so I used that and it also helped to cleanse the body you know all of that is important in water was this paramount and making sure we kept the system nice and clean and giving the body what it needed other things like pineapple the perfect anti-inflammatory for the joints I would do pineapples twice a day fresh pineapple I would also use things such as walnuts almonds in the diet which is very good I would take in as many as 15 you know 12-15 whole eggs a day you know training for competition in off seasons to develop size and off season as I got closer to a show I would do a mixture of maybe three egg whites and two whole eggs per meal I never believed in just taking egg yellows away because the fact of the matter is the egg yellow contains something called lecithin and choline which have their own fat burning properties let's see what haney looks like well he certainly looks big he looks hard he looks like he's ready this may very well be his fifth win Lee's symmetry looks in fact I think better than ever right now just standing there Lee looks like the winner 243 and a quarter pounds but I've tried to stay true to is making sure that quality nutrition were the part of my daily existence had relates to training for competition on season and offseason I never liked my nutrition to be such that I would end up being 30 20 pounds over my last competition weight so I wanted to make sure that whether I gained 5 10 15 or 20 pounds I was still able to see my abs you see it that's the that's the tale story of everything Abs if you got abs that mean your body fat is is within control if you don't then guess what we need to make some changes bodybuilding is judged mainly on the basis of comparison and experience judges usually need only one or two looks at the top contenders to make up their minds but this isn't what happened in Chicago the top five or six were called out over and over in different combinations they have this new school old school kind of a thing that they're talking about and I think because of the criteria of what's accepted and bodybuilding now sort of threw everything out of whack you know and might you know when I entered my competitions you're talking a 32 inch waist you know with a vacuum well that was no longer the norm once during Yeats came in after me it okay the vacuum went away the small waist went away it just became about mass so the mindset of the bodybuilders as of lately has been let's just get big and now let's try to Train down and get some definition and when doing so you have to go through all type of extremes to get rid of body fat in which you should have never put on in the first place whereby we watched every every ounce of quality as we develop our physique so we were never in a quick-fix situation quick fixes causes a lot of other things you know that really didn't have to happen you know crazy things they help get rid of fat which you should never put on this think about how that stuff wearing your adrenal system then you're doing 8 million miles of aerobics that wears on your system also and you're doing it to your joints because the body is only good for so many bumps in the road you can destroy a pair of shock absorbers by hitting bump bump bump where your knees your back your shoulders it works the same way so give the body what it needs and as you know and a lot of my sayings has been trained to stimulate not annihilate you have to annihilate when you do crazy stuff like get forty or fifty sixty pounds over competition weight then you have to try to bring the weight down in order to see how abs or to get in contest condition

How to Workout Like a Bodybuilder | Lee Haney | Training Tips from 8x Undefeated Mr. Olympia

classic physique is where I come from is where Arnold Robbie Frank Zane that is classic physique they say physique but it's really classic bodybuilding a lot of guys chasing me you know is the sport of bodybuilding has grown tremendously and so have the number of competitors so yes I do have a lot of added competition that Arnold didn't have to face during this era eight Mr Olympias where you gonna go beyond that I felt that was that was it for me but to win it eight years in a row at the age of 31 that was a miracle in itself it was a gift from God yes I had to work hard you just don't hand gifts out you have to go get it and I went and got it with all of my heart with that 8th Olmypia felt like I could finally exhale because when you're on the top there's nowhere to go but down and so you're always focusing on how do I stay here and you know I'm living and I lived you know I had two children while I was training for the mr Olympia stayed on top and was still reigning but there's there's a certain amount of pressure I had businesses going on you know there's a lot of stuff happening so that last Olympia I said what I needed to say and I was ready to bow out and say thank you come in close with me baby hey come on baby let's go the intensity I generally try to work towards preparing for the Olympia 12 months out of the year the intensity starts to increase about six months away from the show and then the final of 12 weeks is when I really start to pour it on because the body cannot withstand a great deal of punishment an entire 17 18 weeks so 12 weeks is very intense well it's a lot different now because I have younger bodybuilders that I meet at competitions and you know one of the things that I'm a sticker on is what are your wheels looking like you know you gotta have some legs listen I'm okay with physique and I love physique but I love a full package too you know that's that's how I grew up and that's where I am so I want to know that a guy actually have calves I want to know they have legs you know so one of the things that I see that's sort of off balance now is athletes don't give enough time to bring it about growth and muscle maturity in the different body parts they're now in a system where they would train one body part a week legs once a week calves once a week particularly calves you know and that's a biggie for me I never will forget when I first visit world's gym and you had Joe Gold there I mean Joe golds was like one of the godfathers of bodybuilding when he came to the gym world because he created worlds and golds gym his name was on both of them so I never will forget as I came in for the first time at Worlds in California ed Giuliano Eddie Giuliano was standing there and he said Joe come out the office and check out this this young kid and so he did in So Joe walked around the circling and watch me and said uh pull up your pants leg kid so I pulled my pants leg up and he looked he said you're going places he didn't give a crap about what he saw up top because everybody got something up top if you don't have wheels you don't make it in the sport of bodybuilding not in the sense of where I came from and the era prior to me so that's a very important deal and so I meet a lot of young athletes you know one of the things I actually I look and then I know it's a lot of them lack calves so I how many days do you be training calves one - two - one two - hey man we train our calves five to six days a week a calf is a stubborn muscle so how do we expect for it to respond you've been walking around on them since you were born so your calf is used to high endurance so in order to go beyond that you got to give us something very different you have to stimulate and nearly annihilate a calf in order for it to respond heavy hard consistent and then I look at the fact that a lot of the athletes are training you know one body part a workout it they have an arm day they have a chest day they got a back day said how ridiculous is that and what I see a lot is immature muscle that particular type of program is more designed for a power lifter the details for actual bodybuilder and so you can see it in a physique the cross striations and the muscle maturity is not here like it used to be so I spend a lot of time rewriting and fixing programs for the younger generation of body builders I'm definitely Pro classic physique classic physique is where I come from if we Arnold Robbie Frank Zane that is classic physique they say physique it is really classic bodybuilding that's what it is it's beautiful bodybuilders you have a vacuum you have a nice lines and yes you have the wheels you know so I see no difference in that I'm really have to see that element of bodybuilding make its way back because I felt that the physiques had sort of gotten out of hand you know what made bodybuilding beautiful was no longer beautiful and classic physique brings that back
