Chris Evans is hoping for another hot body makeover in 2012.

The 30-year-old actor, who famously bulked up for his role in Captain America: The First Avenger, tells Details he wants to become more lean in the new year.

"I've had 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," Evans says. "I'm getting old. Nerves are getting pinched every other day, and I really just gotta get more limber."

"Just watch, though, we'll do this interview again next year, and I'll be like, 'I really want to get into yoga! Didn't happen in 2012, but 2013 is the year!'"

The buff actor says he "decided to take a bit of break" from exercising while spending the holidays with his family in Boston. "We finished The Avengers back in September, and coming from Captain America right into The Avengers, essentially I felt like I'd been working out for over a year straight."

Evans won't have to worry about eating too many Christmas cookies, either.

"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," he explains. "What I try to do when I'm working out is take in a lot of heavy protein — clean chicken, clean meats."

"My workout routine isn't too fancy, either. I don't have some cool P90X thing that I do," Evans tells Details. "I just pick up heavy stuff and put it back down. It's really simple stuff. It's like the stuff I learned in high school."
