Adam Levine Strikes A Yoga Pose For Details [PHOTOS & VIDEO]

How does Adam Levine stay so lean and toned? No, Adam is not a weights guy at all, he’s totally in to yoga. A custom yoga routine has sharpened his mind and chiseled his body.

Levine shared his essential poses, styles he swears by, and some of the songs from his yoga playlist with Details. Here are a few things he had to say about working out.

On why he turned to yoga: “Weights made my neck thick, and I would be like, ‘I’m turning into a monster!’ Yoga takes what you have and molds and sculpts it, which is a much more natural way to look and feel.”

On the aesthetic payoff of yoga: “I don’t like how people bullshit about how yoga is not about vanity.”

On doing yoga before a show: “At any Maroon 5 concert, you’ll see a room backstage marked YOGA. Playing a show before thousands of people is a highly unnatural state, and when I get on the mat to do an hour of yoga before the show, I come out physically relaxed.”
