The Situation Reveals His 8 Rules for a Fit Physique

The Situation Reveals His 8 Rules for a Fit Physique

Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino flashes his famous abs on the December/January 2011 cover of Men’s Health, on newsstands November 15.

Here are eight rules the 28-year-old Jersey Shore star lives by to keep his ripped physique:

1. Eat every few hours. Aim for six small meals per day—three meals and three protein shakes
2. Drink tons of water.
3. Choose lean proteins, fruits, and veggies whenever you can.
4. Get six to eight hours of sleep. “Sleep is when your body grows and repairs itself,” he says.
5. Avoid simple carbs and junk calories, including condiments like mayo and jelly.
6. Approach fitness as a longterm lifestyle, not an instant transformation. Be dedicated, patient, and work hard for it.
7. Make working out your No. 1 commitment, because it builds the confidence and discipline you need to succeed in every domain of your life.
8. Give yourself one “cheat day” per week when you can eat whatever you want and recover from your training.

    I’ve never seen Jersey Shore, and I hear too much about him already. He has a nice bod, from the neck down and it clearly shows. Now with his face….he looks like a punk.

    @lynn: lmao I never watched it too but I heard so much criticism about the characters that I don’t feel like watching it. @latam: ha. I agree, his abs look weird. I don’t like his body. Some men think the more muscles they, the better but I actually think too much muscles is gross. I’m not saying the guy has to be skinny (ugh) but not that ripped. The situation’s body may be “fit” but not that attractive to me. Not my taste.

    @Lilakoi Moon: now that I take another glance…his abs look like they’re chubby-toned. I don’t know if that makes sense or not. Like a chubby six-pack..lol

    He has a really ugly stomach. His abs are unusual–and I mean that in a bad way. He looks like a troll. He has horrible style. WTF is he here?

    i still fail to see what everyone is looking at when they say he has a “nice bod.” His abs don’t look cut, it just looks like he’s sucking it in, he doesn’t have that nice triangle taper, he has chicken legs, no real shoulders, and his chest looks more like moobs rather than definition. I won’t even comment on his face.

    He is a situation, pathetically I’ve watched Jersey Shore a couple of times and he’s just obnoxious on it. You just want to throw something at him.

    i think he looks fine and i dont mean FINE but in shape. as for his celeb status i think the narcisstic “situation” attitude is basically just an act and he’s using it and laughing all the way to the bank. the whole jersey shore cast, i hope, is not actually that “real” but are 20 year olds who auditioned and got parts to put a reality show together. i really dont believe that 90% of reality shows are real. some director is directing each character to play the *****, the muscle guy, the nice guy , the narcisstic role, the intellectual, the geek, etc… even on the biggest loser i believe the drama is scripted..same with amazing race, survivor, big brother etc…. they are all in the game for $ and succeeding at some level…. dont believe everything you read
