Adam Lavine - Singer Adam Lavine is dropping weights for yoga.

The Maroon 5 frontman has joked about how weights have turned him into a “monster.”

So, Lavine has decided to ditch the dumbbells in favor of body-contouring yoga. The 32-year-old wants his body to look more natural.

“Weights made my neck thick, and I would be like, ‘I’m turning into a monster!’ Adam told Details magazine. “Yoga takes what you have and moulds and sculpts it, which is a much more natural way to look and feel.”

Adam freely admitted that his love of the discipline comes from the effect that it has on his body, not because of its relaxing qualities.

“I don’t like how people bullsh-t about how yoga is not about vanity,” Lavine said, before conceding that he does use it to come down from the high of performing on stage.

“Playing a show before thousands of people is a highly unnatural state,” he said. “When I get on the mat and do an hour of yoga before the show, I come out physically relaxed.”
