MH Interview: Chris Froome
Last year we sat down with Chris Froome, the reigning Tour de France, Giro d'Italia and Vuelta a España champion, and asked him the questions every Men's Health reader wanted to know.

Here, the world's best grand tour cyclist – and arguably one of the most controversial – talks body shape, training and the quest to stay lean.
How would you describe your body?
I’ve always, luckily, been lean and skinny with long, skinny limbs. Bodes well for professional cycling, especially the kind of cycling I need to do in the mountains.
Is it easy for you to stay lean?
No. I think hard about the quality of the food I’m eating – organic fruit, vegetables and meat wherever possible. It’s a common misconception that because we’re training five or six hours a day that we can eat what we want and burn it off. It really is a case of watching every little thing you put in your mouth and how it’s going to benefit you. Your body really does respond to tweaks then.

What’s your typical training routine?
I train on the bike and I get into the gym five times a week, mainly to work on my core stability, leg strength, and some back work. A lot of squats and lunges, no heavy weights – more about building strength than muscle. We also weave some yoga postures into our stretching.
Are you happy with your body?
It’s a long process for me to feel like that: several months each year in a building phase, working towards the Tour. But once I get there, it’s amazing. I can feel my body ticking over; everything is working the way it should. There’s no better feeling than getting to that point.
