Bill Pearl: Vegetarian Body-Builder


"My wife Judy and I first gave up red meat, but continued eating chicken and fish. Then one night at a fried chicken take-out place I cracked open a piece of chicken and saw a large growth on the joints. When I found out that this was due to the female hormones they feed the chickens to make them grow faster, I decided I didn't want excess female hormones floating around in my system, so Judy and I gave up chicken. Then, when we were down to fish as our only animal flesh, the mercury scare came along and we gave up fish as well... Judy and I have now been vegetarians for almost 35 years. We have no fish, fowl or red meat in our diet. Yet I can still carry the same amount of muscle mass as I did in winning my four Mr. Universe titles. People can't believe it. They think that to have big muscles you have to eat meat—it's a persistent and recurring myth. But take it from me, there's nothing magic about eating meat that's going to make you a champion bodybuilder. Anything you can find in a piece of meat, you can find in other foods as well."

  2. The workout intensity also reflects their love for pain, suffering and punishment to the body. They will work as hard as it takes to bring down the body. Their objective is to wear out the muscles and if possible break them down. A distinct mark of sadist's workout is that there is no set number of sets or reps to be done. The sets and reps are determined by what the body will be able to do during the actual workout, for workout is never complete before the body cannot do any other thing. CrazyBulk legal steroid
