One Arm Row 3 8-12
Dumbbell Laterals 3 8-12
Incline Press 3 8-12
Tricep Pressdown 3 8-12
Barbell Curls 3 8-12
Seated DB Curls 3 8-12
Squats supersetted with... 3 8-12
Pullovers 3 8-12
Breathing Squats 3 8-12
Dumbbell Laterals 1 20
Deadlifts 2 8-12
Good Mornings 2 8-12

how on earth did he do this ? based on what I have learnt on this site this is some serious overtraining
If you are running this 6-7 days a week, I would probably have to agree that it might be over training. Read glwanabe's terrific write up on this routine (Steve Reeves Intermediate Full Body Workout Variation - Muscle and Brawn Bodybuilding, Powerlifting and Muscle Building.) and you will find a variation that breaks it down into more mortal chunks.
