Chris Evans determined to hit the mat for yoga sessions in 2012

Chris Evans has vowed to take yoga more seriously in 2012 in a bid to ease his aches and pains.

The Captain America hunk admits years of working out to maintain a buff physique have taken their toll on his body and he plans to do something to get more limber.

He tells WENN, "It's been, like, the same New Year's resolution for, like, a decade, but I really think I'm going to do it this year. I always say I should do more yoga. Or do yoga - more would mean I do some. I've done none.

"But I always want to do yoga because I'm getting old. Nerves are getting pinched every other day, and I really just gotta get more limber."

And he only hopes he takes to yoga the same way his body responds to work-outs at the gym: "When I am working out, diet doesn't really come into it. I have a pretty fast metabolism, so I don't really have to worry about getting pudgy... and my work-out routine isn't too fancy either... I just pick up heavy stuff and put it back down. It's really simple stuff."
