Alti mari campioni... Bill Pearl

    Un alt mare campion al anilor trecuti este Bill Pearl. Nascut pe 31 octombrie 1930 in Prineville  Oregon, Bill Pearl concureaza la Mr. Universe 1953 si castiga primul lui concurs invingandu-l pe viitorul star Sean Connery. Bill Pearl mai este cunoscut si pentru faptul ca a fost singurul culturist profesionist vegetarian. De fapt Bill este lacto-vegetarian, consumand lapte si oua pe langa produsele vegetale.  Bill se retrage din culturism in 1971 dupa ce castiga Mr. Universe din acel an invingandu-i pe mult mai titratii si tinerii Frank Zane, Sergio Oliva si Reg Park. Bill a fost detinatorul unui fizic robust, fiind un urias pentru vremea sa, avand in vedere ca era cunoscut ca fiind printre singurii culturisti care nu foloseau steroizi. Pe langa concursurile pe care le-a castigat, Bill Pearl a fost un foarte bun antrenor, antrenand diversi culturisti, unul din ei fiind celebrul Chris Cormier (un foarte titrat culturist din anii 2000). Bill Pearl este autorul cunoscutei carti de antrenament pentru femei si barbati"Getting Stronger: Weight Training for Men and Women".
