The second group of workouts is from February 1965. At this point the weights Dave used was also affected by the fact that he had seriously started to diet down to the Mr. America 1965 competition. By the night of the Mr. America September 18, 1965 that took place in The Brooklyn Academy of music, he weighed in at 230 lbs (his goal had been 228 lbs).

By February 14th 1965 Dave's chest-back-legs workout looked like this:

One day after, February 15th 1965, Dave's delts-biceps-triceps-forearms workout looked like this:

Forearms (10 sets):
Zottmann curl: 5 sets of 8x45
Wrist curl: 5 sets of 12x155

The rep progression Dave used was very systematic in some exercises (but not all exercises). A typical progression could be like this in an exercise of 5 sets:

(#1 = Workout number 1 and so forth)

#1. 6, 6, 6, 6, 6
#2. 7, 6, 6, 6, 6
#3. 7, 7, 6, 6, 6
#4. 7, 7, 7, 6, 6
#5. 7, 7, 7, 7, 6
#6. 7, 7, 7, 7, 7
#7. 8, 7, 7, 7, 7
#8. 8, 8, 7, 7, 7
#9. 8, 8, 8, 7, 7
#10. 8, 8, 8, 8, 7
#11. 8, 8, 8, 8, 8

At this point the weight would then be increased and the reps went back to 6. But as I said, not all exercises would progress this systematically. In some exercises the weight was increased faster than this.
