Muscular Development October, 1964, featuring Steve Reeves

Posted on Thursday, February 12th, 2015 by John Wood

Here we have the October, 1964 issue of Muscular Development magazine (making this one the tenth issue ever) which features a painting of the great Steve Reeves on the cover. The first unofficial Powerlifting championships was to be held in York, Pennsylvania shortly after this issue hit the news stands so the issue focused heavily powerlifting related news and training including an excellent and quite interesting article on rack work by eventual champion Terry Todd. Sig Klein also contributed a dynamite article on the heavy deep knee bend ~ otherwise known as the squat. With Steve Reeves on the cover, there was understandably a several page spread on his movie career and other accomplishments.
