"Doing more exercise with less intensity,"
Arthur Jones believes, "has all but
destroyed the actual great value
of weight training. Something
must be done . . . and quickly."
The New Bodybuilding for
Old-School Results supplies
MUCH of that "something."

Reeves Head

Has anyone else noticed the fact that Steve Reeves had a gigantic head? Seriously, look at the attached photo and notice how the size of his head dwarfs that of the woman's head (disreading the fact that she's further away from the camera).

Now, personally, I'm a big Reeves fan, so I'm not pointing this out as a "flaw" by any means. However, I think this probably explains why Reeves never really looked huge when he was photographed standing/posing by himself. Actually, one could never really tell just how big he was unless he standing next to someone else... could his herculean-sized head have helped to create this optical illusion? Hhmmm....

I've never noticed it. Assuming you're just going by that photo, it could very well be the lense used.

I've never noticed it before, but that thing is HUGE!

Do you think that the same thing applies to Andy Williams?

I'm not sure who Andy Williams is so I really can't say. I'm sure if you found a photo of him standing next to an average-sized person you'd be easily be able to tell though.

I've got a huge melon head myself. I have an above average neck, but it doesn't look that way because of my homer simpson head. My hip size has really helped with squatting ability, but I'd never win a bodybuilding contest with these child rearing hips either.

Sergio had a little tiny waist and huge upperbody. My waist doesn't have much fat on it, but its wide. I make a better lifter than body sculpter although I appreciate what they do.

Wouldn't it be funny if he sounded like Mike Tyson?

He does have a big melon. See here: http://www.drdarden.com/...429415&pageNo=1

He also has a long neck, thus the shoulders are relatively low for his height. This makes it difficult to judge his height when meeting him in person.

I have the same "problem", just I'm 6'4" and my shoulder height is on par with people 1-2" smaller then me.

And funny is, I realize how freaking tall I am only when I see myself close to others in mirrors/window refelections and fotos. It still surprizes me, especially when the other person is average or below average.

I'm the same Franco, shoulder joints lower than most my height, always stood out because of it, even when a kid, very slopey traps same as Schwarz, makes me look even shorter.

Actually my traps are not very slopy, therefor I said like Reeves who has the long neck, big melon but square shoulders (like you can see on the pic with reg park). Not that mine are that wide...

Yea, like Arnold's crack about bringing his body up in proportion to a certain part of his anatomy!

The muscles in the head are sorely ignored by body builders. I bet you build your jaw muscles pretty impressively!

I never knew I had a big head until after school one day, my Mum asked me to go to the shop and pick up a pound of potatoes with my hat! Hehehe

VERY WIDESPREAD and commonly accepted myth!
I was shocked when I heard Steves "REAL" voice in his biography tape-that it WAS in fact the voice in the Hercules etc. movies. Of course the voice was dubbed in later since the movies were made in Italian-but Steve's real voice IS the voice in the English voiceover.

Get that bio tape on Steve Reeves' website-GREAT addition to your video library.

Perhaps HIT;ers should start making more funny faces when training? ;-)

(Recently I tried to make a fairly accurate 3D head sculpture with well developed facial muscles and, atleast in my opninion, it reminded me somewhat of Ronnie Coleman :-D )

I didn't know that.

I thought he did Hercules speaking Italian, and then they dubbed it with someone elses voice for the American release. So he was a baritone then.

You know it's a fun film it's just a shame about the camp villians and the crappy monster at the end. Monsters don't put their arm out to break a fall.

BTW, usually men with a big melon (and therefore a big throat) also have a deep voice. It goes hand in hand.
Of course I'm speaking about lean folks. With the fatty ones on the other hand the big head (or better face) and neck/throat are actually small ones with a lot of padding to give the illusion of beeing big. In these people you can find quite some with filmsy voices.

The biggest head I've ever seen on a person belonged to a guy named Paul Kostka. Even though he was well over 6' tall and over 300 lbs, his head still looked too big for his body. Ironically, he had a high, squeaky voice.

Clint Eastwood always seemed to have a light voice for a bigish guy, bit like a whisper, he was also one of the first hollywood stars to regulary workout.

I was wondering about that... it would kind of taken away from his movie star appeal if he had sounded like a 12 year old girl.
