Phil Hill is one of those fascinating figures from the past. Nearly an obscurity in the bodybuilding world except to those who were around in the 80's. Did a few pro shows and disappeared. There is so little information about him. How he trained, dieted, etc. Only that he was from NJ and is/was a corrections officer there. And then there's the fight he supposedly got into with Ron Love at one show.
Every time I've seen clips of him I have to wonder how far he could've gone in the sport. He looked incredible and probably would still show well even by today's standards but for that time I can't imagine too many pros back then matching muscle density and shape with him on a stage.
In Sam Fussell's book Muscle (which I loved) there is a small mention of Phil Hill who Fussell saw backstage at a show pumping up for a guest posing. If I recall, he makes a vague allusion to Hill having a thousand yard stare while doing Seated Calf Raises and possibly being burnt out from the sport.
