During a recent conversation with the hosts of the podcast show SmartLess, the iconic co-lead vocalist and bassist of The Beatles, Paul McCartney, revealed that aside from a successful musician, he is pretty good at yoga and loves doing headstands.
Paul McCartney is one of the world’s best-known rockstars and even though he’s 78 years old, he still creates music and loves giving concerts. As a matter of fact, there are almost two weeks left for his new album to be released.
As you probably know Paul McCartney was expected to release his 18th solo album ‘McCartney III’ on December 11, but the release day has been postponed to December 18, 2020. As Paul enjoys performing, fans are also expecting a 2021 tour from him.
The fact that Paul McCartney is so physically active often raises the question of how he can be so energized while his peers have retired. It turns that Paul has a secret that has helped him stay young and active which he first started practicing in the ’60s.
During the ’60s, Paul Paul practiced meditation and yoga and his passion for meditation was so great that he helped popularize ‘Transcendental Meditation.’ During his recent interview, Paul talked about his workout routine and casually mentioned how much he enjoys headstands which surprised the listeners of the podcast.
It turns out that Paul has a strict workout schedule. He starts with doing some yoga exercises by himself and then continues with running on an elliptical machine. The favorite part of his workout is his final headstand which always surprises everyone around him.
It looks like Paul’s strict but light workout routine has helped him stay fit and share his music with his fans to this day. The fact that he can still do a headstand deserves a standing ovation or preferably, a head-standing one.
Here’s what Paul McCartney said about his workout routine:
“I have a very definite routine, it’s just me. I get on the mat, and I do a bunch of stuff there… Then, I move over to a cross-trainer, do a bit of running.”
He added that:
“It’s not a huge workout, but it’s good. I like it.”
Here’s how Paul impresses ‘the big guys’ with his headstand:
“If I’m in a gym and all the big guys have got big weights and they’re doing all the big stuff, in the end, I do a headstand. And they come over to me and say, ‘That’s pretty impressive man.'”
