Reeves made it a priority to keep his physique proportional. In his book Classic Physique, he wrote that he felt his neck, upper arms, and calves should be the same size in circumference. He also thought that the measurements of each thigh combined should equal his chest measurement. Holding himself to that kind of standard is why he is remembered by so many admirers today. Reeves passed away in 2000 at the age of 74.
