London, Thu, 18 Oct 2012 ANI

London, Oct 18 (ANI): Michael Phelps has nabbed the number one spot of the 100 Fittest Men Of All Time, beating Bruce Lee, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Muhammad Ali.

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.

Schwarzenegger was named the third most fittest man by the magazine.

Meanwhile, 'James Bond' star Daniel Craig came in at 50th position.

The list of Men's Health top 20 fittest men ever are:

1. Michael Phelps

2. Bruce Lee
