Hope you guys had a good thanksgiving too!

Steve Reeves Day.

Since I only hit the gym 3 times this week, I wanted to make sure I still hit every muscle twice, like I usually do, just with more rest and recovery with the extra off days.

I did this by splitting the first two days up (chest/back/shoulder/triceps and legs/biceps) and by hitting a full body workout on day 3.

Now, this is extremely similar to Steve Reeves Championship Workout, but since I was short on time, I used the pushing movements as my tricep work, the pulling movements as my bicep work, and the squats as my core work, thus eliminating the isolated bicep, tricep, and ab work, and saving myself time.

This, however, doesn't mean the workout was easier. In fact, with the pace I set, it wiped me out really good.

Here's how it went:

MODIFIED STEVE REEVES WORKOUT:

SHOULDERS:

1. Upright row-3 x 8 with 95 lb cambered bar.

2. Behind the neck press-12 with 160, 10 with 180, 8 with 190

3. Lateral raises-2 x 10 with 35's, 1 x 8 with 40's

CHEST:

1. Flat Wide Grip Bench Press-2 x 8 with 225, 1 x 8 with 205

2. Incline DB Bench Press-80's x 8, 85's x 8, 75's x 10

3. Flyes-75's x 8, 60's x 10, 60's x 11

BACK:

1. Wide Lat Pulldown: 170 x 12, 180 x 10, 190 x 10

2. Seated rows: 170 x 10, 180 x 10, 190 x 10

3. 1 Arm Row-3 x 10 with 70's

LEGS:

1. Toe Raise-185 x 20, 185 x 20, 185 x 20
