And was weighing as much as 220 in the last few years! My favourite bodybuilder, not just for his physique but for his feats of strength and how well he comes across as an ambassador for strength training and bodybuilding in general.

 Grin bill and his brother harry used to get into fistfights into their 40's until bill finally said we got to stop doing this already.

Bill Pearl is one of my favorite old-school bodybuilders who doesn't get nearly enough praise for his accomplishment.

In 1971, he mopped up the floor with three-time Mr. Olympia, Sergio Oliva, along with Dave Draper, Frank Zane, and several other IFBB legends, to win the NABBA Universe.

I remember using his "20 Months to a Champion's Physique" articles in IronMan magazine. That was great stuff. "Train; don't strain", similar to Haney's "Stimulate; don't annihilate" mantra. That's when I stopped training to failure, which helped me recover from my workouts.
