Jay-z ‘envious’ Of Martin’s Yoga SkillsBy WENN

Rap superstar JAY-Z is considering taking yoga tips from his rocker pal CHRIS MARTIN - because he’s jealous of the COLDPLAY frontman’s flexibility on stage.
Martin, who practises yoga with his wife Gwyneth Paltrow, is known for his energetic performances, jumping, bending and running around the stage during Coldplay gigs.
The Run This Town hitmaker admits he would love to be as agile as the Viva La Vida singer, having witnessed Martin’s concert workouts night after night as they tour the U.K. together.
He says, “Chris hasn’t tried to get me to do yoga yet but I am close to doing it. I’m envious of what he can do on stage. Watching him is amazing, he can really move. I want to be able to move like that, get my leg behind my ear, things like that.”
But Jay-Z, who is married to Beyonce, confesses he’ll have to get back in shape before he will even consider attempting any body-bending exercises: “I try and work out four times a week - cardio, weights, push ups, pull ups - but I haven’t for a month because of vacation and touring.”
