Just by looking at this picture, you would never know that a year ago, Bret Michaels suffered from a brain hemorrhage and underwent heart surgery 7 months ago.
Clearly, this guy's a fighter and he's working hard to stay fit and healthy, EVEN when he's on the road.
It's no easy work though. Bret explains his fitness regimen to get that smokin' bod while touring:
"It’s not been a joyride for me. Strength training is key so I can keep up my energy on stage, so I literally bring my gym with me. I have my own gym that we carry behind the tour bus."
And when's off the tour bus, Bret says:
"I go mountain biking [and] running. Whenever I can get off the bus, I take full advantage. I do sit-ups. A lot of sit-ups.
As a lifelong diabetic, every day is a battle. You have to accept that you have diabetes because it is the card you’ve been dealt. I work to enjoy my life like a regular human being while keeping my blood sugar levels as decent as possible. It’s a fine line, a catch-22, a balancing act."
You're obviously doing it though, Bret. Just make sure that even though you're physically fit, you take time out of yourself and try to be as stress-free as possible. You seem to be doing everything right, though.
