Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps is the fittest man alive, according to one magazine.
Just months after becoming the most successful Olympic athlete in history, taking 22 medals, Phelps has nabbed the number one spot of the 100 Fittest Men Of All Time, beating Bruce Lee, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Muhammad Ali.James Bond’s Daniel Craig came in under the wire at 50.Phelps, 27, says he keeps his body ripped with his grueling daily 5-hour workouts, reports Men’s Health.
To fuel the workouts, Phelps reportedly stuck to a 12,000-calorie daily diet, which included three fried-egg sandwiches topped with cheese, one five-egg omelet, a bowl of grits, three slices of French toast, and three chocolate-chip pancakes.And that’s just breakfast.Bruce Lee comes in at number two on the list.
For most of his career, Lee weighed only 125 pounds, stood only 5-foot 7-inches and had a 26-inch waist, but had a stunning physique thanks to him being an early pioneer of resistance training and core-strengthening, now so wildly popular.’Bruce took off his T-shirt, and I marveled again, as I always did every time I saw his physique,’ Chuck Norris once said.’He had muscles on muscles.’
Even Arnold, who was named the third most fittest man by the magazine, was impressed with Lee.’Bruce Lee had a very — and I mean a very — defined physique’” Schwarzenegger said. ‘He probably had one of the lowest body-fat counts of any athlete around … He was one of a kind, an idol.’James Bond actor Daniel Craig came in last at 50.
‘His portrayal was fitter, meaner, angrier, and darker than any Bond in the history of the franchise — and that’s why Craig’s Bond is also one of the best,’ says Men’s Health of Craig’s Bond.’He looks like the kind of Bond you could imagine a henchman legitimately running from — cobblestone abs, monster traps, and hardly an ounce of fat anywhere.’In other words, he’s the Bond who finally made kicking ass in a tuxedo believable again.’ – Dailymail
