Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. William Arnold "Bill" Pearl (born October 31, 1930) is a former leading competitive American bodybuilder during the 1950s and '60s. He won many titles and awards, including winning the Mr. Universe contest several times, and became a trainer and author on the subject. Pearl was born in Prineville, Oregon. His first major victory was in the (this is not correct, Pearl did not win Mr. Universe, professional class, until 1961, NABBA, England) 1953 Mr Universe contest (in which he beat out a then 23 year old Sean Connery). He actively competed until his retirement in 1971 after winning the Mr. Universe one last time, over superstars Frank Zane, Reg Park and Sergio Oliva. In all, he won the professional Mr Universe 4 times in an 18 year span, which was unprecedented at the time. He was the first professional bodybuilder to author bodybuilding training courses/booklets.show more
