HOW STEVE REEVES TRAINED by John Grimek

Reprinted from Muscular Development
November 1964
Yes, we saw Steve Reeves change from a
“skinny” bodybuilder to a Mr. Universe winner in just
seven weeks! It was in 1950 when we invited him to
come and train with us in York, and since he expressed
a desire to compete in the Mr. Universe contest again,
York Barbell Club was willing to sponsor him.
Of course it was only a year earlier when he
placed third in the Mr. USA contest, which I won, and
openly declared for the third and final time that I
would no longer compete in any more physique contests
no matter who hurled the challenge at me. I
further stated that if any further challenges would be
issued, Steve would be the man to accept them on my
behalf. Because of this, Steve kept me well informed
about his training progress, and I gave him whatever
encouragement he needed. I knew, of course, that he
wanted to compete in the Mr. Universe contest again,
and I assured him that York Barbell Club would send
him over if he would stay in shape. He was very
interested and he kept in contact with me regularly.
Then several months lapsed when I didn’t hear a thing
from him, and being busy at the time I dismissed the
thought from my mind.
