Back in the 1940s and ‘50s, Steve Reeve’s physique and good looks helped him pick up women on the beach.
He was such a good-looking lad and so classically well muscled that he was chosen to be Hercules in the movies.
And his movie star cool was obvious everywhere he went…
One of his best physique features was his arms, as you can see in the last shot above. Reeves didn’t do a lot of sets per muscle group, choosing full-body workouts three days a week, but he did instinctively use many of the best exercises and angles.
One “secret” to his arm size was stretch position moves, loading the target muscle at full elongation. Here’s a shot of the Little Rascals learning the dumbbell overhead extension…
That overhead triceps move was one of his favorites, and the only biceps exercise he did was incline curls, nothing else. Both of those packed on extra arm size due to full stretch.
Stretch overload is a proven size builder. In one study it was the sole reason for “the greatest gains in muscle mass ever recorded,” according to lead researcher, Jose Antonio, Ph.D.
That study, as well as other newer studies, are discussed in Old Man, Young Muscle. Plus, you’ll learn the best stretch exercise for each target muscle in the new reloaded Positions-of-Flexion chapter along with full workouts…
Efficient muscle sculpting can help you create a masterpiece physique. Here’s another Reeves shot for motivation, a colorized version of a classic—he was completely drug-free by the way…
Till next time, train hard—and smart—for BIG results.
