During a chat with with Tim McGraw on his new Beyond The Influence Radio on Apple Music, Bruce Springsteen spoke candidly about his workout regimen. “The Boss,” who’s now 71, could easily be mistaken for a man 25 years younger. He explained how he keeps in such fantastic physical shape, saying, “The biggest thing is diet, diet, diet. I don’t eat too much, and I don’t eat bad food, except for every once in a while when I want to have some fun for myself. So I think anybody that’s trying to get in shape, exercise is always important of course, but diet is 90 percent of the game.”

Springsteen, whose bandana and buffed-up “pumping iron” biceps came to define the mid-1980’s, admitted: “I don’t do that much right now. I lift a little weight to stay toned. I may get on the treadmill. I walk. I don’t run anymore.”
