Phil Collen turns 66 today (December 8), but if you’ve ever seen Def Leppard live, you certainly wouldn’t know it. Why? He’s in better shape than most men half his age.

The guitarist rarely performs with a shirt on, and frankly, who among us wouldn’t do the same if we were equally as ripped? Of course, such a killer physique doesn’t just happen. Collen puts in a lot of work to stay in shape, especially before heading out on tour. However, when touring was put on hold this year, even Collen enjoyed a little too much R&R. So, what’s a rockstar to do? Start a 30-day fitness challenge on YouTube.

Back in July 2021, Collen launched his 30-day fitness challenge on Def Leppard’s YouTube Channel. During the weekly videos, Collen shared his various workout routines, diet changes and his favorite workout playlists.

In honor of his birthday (or maybe to kick any New Year’s Resolution off a little early), embedded below are all of the videos from the Phil Collen 30-Day Fitness Challenge. Enjoy!

  • Week One

    In week one, fans saw Collen get his diet back on track after indulging a little too much during the pandemic. If you zoom in on his workout notes in this video, you can see where he writes to drink a gallon of water every day. Let’s face it, most of us should consider doing the same, because most of us are dehydrated.

  • Week Two

    In week two, fans see Collen focus more and more on weight training and cardio in the form of squats, chin-ups and pull-ups.We also see him put together one of his quick, go-to salads, which features avocado and two chopped veggie burgers.

  • Week Three

    In week three, Collen adds heavier weights to his workouts, where he’s keen to build up his chest, shoulders and arms. He also shares that he loves to start his day with some oatmeal with berries and peanut butter to help fuel the start of his day.

  • Week Four

    In week four, we see Collen do some unique circuit training that utilizes kickboxing and traditional calisthenics. He also revealed that before his 30-day fitness challenge, he gained 13 pounds in a month, due to basically eating whatever he wanted and not really exercising very much. During his challenge, Collen lost eight of those 13 pounds and reminded viewers that it’s much easier to put on weight than it is to lose it.
