Watch as Def Leppard’s Phil Collen kicks off his 30-day fitness challenge

Last week, Def Leppard guitarist Phil Collen announced he was about to kick off a 30-day fitness challenge and encouraged fans to follow along using the hashtag #PhilCollen30Days.

Now he’s released the first video in the series which covers the first seven days and sees the guitarist kick boxing, lifting weights, doing bench presses, Thai kicks, cable crunches and more.

Phil also shows us what he’s eating and drinking – and revealed his daily playlists which include Duran Duran, The Police and INXS.

He says: “I’ve put on weight on purpose eating junk food, crisps and all that which has been great, but I’m getting sick of it now, so I’m going to get back on it.”

Def Leppard’s North American summer tour with Motley CruePoison and Joan Jett & The Blackhearts was called off last month, with the shows rescheduled for 2021.

The new dates will kick off in Nashville on June 19 and wrap up in San Diego on September 12. All tickets purchased for the postponed 2020 dates will be valid for next year’s shows.

Def Leppard recently released their live package London To Vegas. It features footage from the band’s Hysteria At The O2 performance from London in 2018 along with Hits Vegas, Live At Planet Hollywood which was captured during Def Leppard’s successful 2019 Sin City residency.
