“Over the years, I’ve been getting less and less flexible, which has become a bit of a challenge. Sometimes, landing in the Spidey poses, I’ve been pulling a hamstring here and there, so I’ve taken up yoga.”

Despite being so dependent on the movement and flexibility of his body, he already started facing difficulty with his stunts. So much so that whenever he would land on Spider-Man’s iconic pose, he would often find a muscle being pulled or a hamstring being stretched out. To counter this problem, he started doing yoga on a regular basis. Yoga will help him gain his flexibility back and he would then be able to do all his stunts back to the way he used to. The more he did his stunts and practiced to increase his flexibility, the better it would get for him while doing various movies.
