You don't need weights to get fit, but they are necessary if you want to bulk up for any tough guy part in television or movies. Many extras have started from being the strong man in a crowd, especially pirate movies, then progressed to acting. Getting into the right frame of mind, is more than just pumping iron, it is a regime based on good diet, eating patterns and regenerative sleep.

 

 

 

Lee Haney grew up in Spartanburg, South Carolina. He is a graduate of Spartanburg Methodist College, where he earned a degree in youth counseling. He and his wife, Shirley, reside in Atlanta, Georgia. They have two children.

President Bill Clinton appointed Haney chairman of the President's Council on Physical Fitness and Sports. A devout born again Christian, Haney has his own program on the Trinity Broadcasting Network called "TotaLee Fit with Lee Haney," where he is usually joined by famous Christian sportsmen, and on occasion his wife. On the show he teaches the importance of both physical and spiritual growth. One of his most famous quotes is that we should "train to stimulate, not annihilate."
