Steve Reeves' Lifting Stats
I'm trying to find Reeves' PR's but I can't seem to find the info anywhere.

Can anyone help me? Does anyone know what the #'s to his best lifts are?

Good question. Read quite a bit on Steve but don't recall his numbers.

"Reeves shocked all in attendance by cleaning the most at with a lift of 225 pounds. Reeves also routinely performed strict reps in the dumbbell incline curl with 90-pound dumbbells."

Not sure if that link is of any further use.

May find info here:

Thanks for that, 5k. Every number helps.
