Def Leppard’s Phil Collen Shares The Secrets Of His Physique
Phil Collen, the guitarist for Def Leppard, trains like an athlete to keep up that rock star physique of his. Collen, also the vocalist and guitarist for Manraze, doesn’t get a lot of down time but when he does, he’s working out hard core with his trainer, world class Muay Thai instructor Jean Carrillo.
Collen has a blackbelt in Kenpo and trains traditional Muay Thai while on tour to stay in shape for the stage. MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) Worldwide Magazine recently did a series called ‘Rock Star Training’ where they were granted backstage access to witness how the 53-year Collen stays in such incredible shape.
Apparently, it’s down to mechanics, Physical Mechanics to be exact. Physical Mechanics is a 3-tiered workout program (developed by Phil and Jean) that incorporates aspects of Muay Thai and weight training combined with proper diet & nutrition. Their course is designed to help anyone, no matter what their level of fitness.
So, if shedding weight, gaining muscle and shredding a guitar is what you’re all about, take notice of Collen’s current physique. He looks better going over the hill than he did in his supposed prime.
