Mick Jagger dances to stay in shape as well as doing sprints and regular gym sessions.

Mick Jagger dances to stay in shape for The Rolling Stones' shows.

The Satisfaction singer is known for his unique style of dancing, and puts in regular sessions as part of his regime to stay fit for concerts.

He said, "I train five or six days a week, but I don't go crazy. I alternate between gym work and dancing; then I do sprints, things like that. I'm training for stamina."

Before a show the singer tries to go to bed early, then follows a set of routines to make sure he’s in top shape for the performance.

In an interview with Q magazine, Mick ? who’ll headline the Glastonbury Festival at the end of June ? added: "Bed early the night before [a concert], about 2 am. Up at 10 the next morning. Any earlier and you'll be too relaxed by showtime. I have rituals. But my rituals all have a purpose. I give myself two hours to get ready for a show ? to tune up the voice and get myself in the right frame of mind mentally and physically."

While the band were known for their hard living throughout the ’60s, ’70s and ’80s ? with guitarist Keith Richards regularly staying up for days on end ? drummer Charlie Watts insists that even after shows they’re no longer able to party.

He said, "There's no sort of going to bed at five in the morning. It's quite normal to wander down the corridor and go to bed at five in the morning when you're young. None of us do that [now]. We try to do it, but by 2 am we're [asleep]."
