Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino is sharing his prison workout after showing off his 35-pound weight-loss. The Jersey Shore: Family Vacation star unveiled a new slimmer and muscular physique on social media Friday afternoon.
“This is what it looks like when you turn a negative Situation into a Positive Situation,” the reality TV star captioned a photo of himself working out.
It appears he used his time in prison wisely. Sorrentino spoke to Entertainment Tonight regarding the strict regimen he kept during his eight months behind bars. There were prison rules he had to follow, and then there were the rules The Situation set for himself.
“I went to sleep every night at 10 p.m. I woke up every morning at 7 a.m. and did fasted cardio for about an hour. I was practicing intermittent fasting while I was in prison. My window of intermittent fasting was between 16 and 17 hours on the weekdays, and 18 and 19 hours on the weekends,” Sorrentino explained to ET.
It wasn’t just intermittent fasting that helped him change his physique. The reality TV star was a fanatic about working out, especially doing intense cardio.
Sorrentino was committed to working at out at least once a day. Sometimes on difficult days, like holidays, where he was missing his family and friends, he would work out two or three times a day.
“Because, you know, on your birthday, or Easter or something, you’re in your feels a little bit You’re like, ‘You know what? Today I’m gonna do something to make my future self-proud.’ And I put in my three workouts,” the 37-year-old admitted.
Staying busy in prison helped The Situation feel like he was accomplishing something even though he was limited in his surroundings. It was essential to him that he feels like he achieved something positive during his prison stint.
“I had to continually challenge myself, whether it was in the gym, and/or diet. I was reading books, the Bible, and trying to progress spiritually as well. Because if you do not keep yourself busy in there, I saw a lot of guys that weren’t doing those things and you saw depression and anxiety take control. I felt very accomplished staying busy in prison,” Sorrentino shared with the entertainment magazine.
