 Michael Phelps Named Fittest Man of All Time

Olympic gold medalist Michael Phelps tops the list of the 100 Fittest Men Of All Time, say sources.

The 27-year-old, who's the most successful Olympic athlete in history with 22 medals, says he keeps his body ripped with his gruelling daily 5-hour workouts, reports Men's Health.

To fuel the workouts, Phelps reportedly sticks to a 12,000-calorie daily diet that includes 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 for breakfast.

Martial arts instructor Lee came in at number two on the list, the Daily Mail reported.

For most of his career, the late actor weighed only 125 pounds, was only 5-foot 7-inches tall and had a 26-inch waist, but had a stunning physique, thanks to him being an early pioneer of resistance training and core-strengthening, which is wildly popular now.
