Note 6) There is a point of diminishing returns with lifting weights. At first, the strength and muscle mass gains are very rapid (the newbie effect). In each subsequent year, the gains are less and less until at some point you reach your genetic maximum and all gains cease despite intense workouts and flawless nutrition. How long it takes to reach the genetic maximum depends on many factors including genetics but most importantly on the intensity of the workout program. If someone lifts casually and does a whole body workout for 30min 3 days a week, they will never reach their genetic max. After 20 years, if they get serious about lifting, they could have a second chance at the newbie effect and spectacular gains despite their “ole” age. On the other hand if a teen starts professional powerlifting at age 16 then they might hit their genetic max very early, perhaps in as few as 6 years.
As for the diet, the diet in Reeves “Classic Physic” three meals a day consisting of his meal replacement protein shake, cottage cheese with nuts and fruit and then a huge salad with sword fish or steak or chicken was the diet he used while competing for Mr. Universe with this very challenging Mega full body workout consisting of nearly 56 set. I would say that his diet was probably a lot heavier when he was not competing, probably something like three meals made of mostly complex carbs and protein from eggs, milk, and lean meats.
I think his physique is definitely attainable for people with similar structures and genetics. Like you mentioned in the video he does have really good genetics for burning fat, he was never fat… And has been lifting since forever. If he is on something it’s gotta be like low dose of test, but I hardly doubt he’s taking anything. Good looking as he is I don’t think he’ll risk his health for bodybuilding when he can make so much more modeling for CK or something with a natural physique. He’s always been placing like dead last at the IFBB shows plus doesn’t look full when he diets down. He has no androgenic signs. It’s easier for me to diagnose this considering I have really good muscle building genes, living, Born and raised in NYC I’ve met lots of people who are users and non users. People say “eww he has stats like serge nubret”, so fucking what… He isn’t serge nubret, the weider Brothers painted a certain picture of serge nubret… Serge nubret was 6ft that means he didn’t take much shit if he was only 6ft,another thing you don’t know how consistent serge was, he probably wasn’t as dedicated as Jeff… No one know this” I hate when someone sees a black men that’s ripped, and because they are another ethnicity they think their level of muscularity isn’t attainable. That’s coming from someone who’s mulatto, I’m bi racial and tired of listening to ignorant, dumb shit.
