Momoa said he previously attempted yoga back in 2011, after he had prepared for his role as the powerful Cimmerian warrior in “Conan The Barbarian”.
“I remember one time I was all yoked out for ‘Conan the Barbarian’, and I was in a yoga class with all these older ladies in Topanga and everyone was just holding their arms up and I was like, ‘This is so hard!’” he said.
Talking about the secret to his fit physique, he said: “It’s just genetics. Hawaiians are big people. I rock climb a lot. Maybe I’m an ape. I love the way it feels. I like being upside down. I always loved climbing trees as a kid and swinging in the breeze. But lifting weights is challenging.”
