Ever wonder what it takes for Kenny Chesney to maintain his amazing physique? Wonder no more. In the June issue of Men’s Health, Chesney discusses how he prepares for a major tour.
“Growing up in East Tennessee, everything you do revolves around food,” he says. He doesn’t eat many dairy products, hasn’t touched salt in 10 years, hasn’t had bread “in a while.” The country megastar watches what he eats during the week, but allows a “cheat day” on Sunday. Oh, and he can do 300 push-ups in a matter of 10 minutes. All of this for a man who turned 44 on March 26th. Not too shabby.
In addition to eating right and exercising, Chesney has never abused his body with drugs or smoking, but admits to overindulging in alcohol. He adds, “I’ve never abused my body with drugs. I’ve never smoked. But I will say that I’ve probably been overserved a lot. You can’t spend 19 years on the road and not have a few drinks.”
Chesney hits the road in a couple of weeks with Tim McGraw, Jake Owen, and Grace Potter and The Nocturnals on the Brothers of the Sun Tour. The tour opens on June 2nd in Tampa, Florida.
