Phil Hill was born on 12 October 1963 and although he has now retired as a professional bodybuilder he certainly placed his mark on the sport. His fan base insist to this day that he was cheated out of the Mr. Olympia position when he was placed 12th in 1988.
That night at the Mr. O was something that everyone will remember for a long time because the audience disagreed with the judges completely and they booed the judges. The audience went crazy when Phil jumped on stage with the top ten finalists and started posing.
Phil has worked as a corrections officer at Trenton State Prison in New Jersey for most of his life and still trains regularly even though he does not compete anymore. At 5’8” and competing at around 225 pounds with perfect balance a proportion Phil certainly was in a better class than his competitive records indicates.
Between 1986 and 1988 he was in the best shape of his life and his results tell us that the judges agreed with this. After winning the Mr New Jersey – AAU in 1982 he also went on to win the 1986 AAU Mr. America as well as the 1986 AAU Mr. USA and placed first in the heavyweight division of the NPC nationals in 1987.
Phil is a truly gifted bodybuilder and will certainly be remembered for his ethical contribution to bodybuilding in general. It was difficult to find any information on this talented bodybuilders training routines but there is a rumor that he always trained five days a week.
Although this is not first-hand knowledge of his training style it is said that he would do volume training and always use both heavy weights and high reps training to the point of failure when pumping a heavy weight for 15 reps takes a lot of effort. But it probably explains his perfectly balanced body with a huge amount of muscle on his 5'8" frame.
