Lee Haney’s physique of the late ’80s marked a transition from the “lightweight era” of 1976-83 and the supersizing of the ’90s. Nowhere was this more evident than in his best bodypart, his back, with its distinctly modern medley of width, density and definition.
The eight-time Mr. Olympia’s low lats swelled out so far they overwhelmed challengers in even the front double biceps and front lat spread. Here's the workout that built Lee's legendary lats:
