Bill Pearl was certainly a powerful force in the bodybuilding world during the 1960's. Bill was a committed vegetarian that presented a symmetrical well-built physique that won him the 1967 Mr. Universe. He says he used the routine listed below to develop his muscle mass for that competition.
Bill Pearl won 4 different Mr. Universe titles over years, he continued to train hard well into his 70's. Bill's workout routines were always tough, combining building muscle with longevity in a very creative way. Be warned however, the workout program below is not for the fainthearted.
Bill would train 6 times a week like many of his fellow competitive bodybuilders, but Bill had a slightly different approach, not doing the normal legs/shoulders day and chest/biceps split routine. Bill would split his body into seemingly random body-parts that he would train on any specific day. Bill's training philosophy was to train hard but smart, i.e. seeing/feeling what really works for your body and going from there.
