Jersey Shore Gets Pumped in GQ Magazine Shoot
Very few people can get the guys of "Jersey Shore" to ditch their signature "guido" style. But when GQ was calling, Paul (DJ Pauly D) DelVecchio, Vinny Guadagnino, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro and Mike (The Situation) Sorrentino came running, ready to ditch their signature looks for chic gym attire for the magazine's October issue.
In the issue, the "Jersey Shore" men dished out some of their workout advice, self-help tips and reveal their biggest workout pet peeves.
When given the option of either hitting the gym or going to the tanning salon within a two-hour time frame the day before taking a date on a cruise, the cast mates differed in opinion.
"Tanning bed. You look more toned when you're tan," Pauly D answered.
The Situation countered, "Gonna have to say the gym. Just get tan on the boat."
As for the lamest things guys will do in the gym, Vinny said he doesn't like when people walk around talking the whole time.
"If you're at the gym, you should be working out," said Vinny, who used to be a personal trainer before his "Shore" days.
Agrees Pauly D, "I'm trying to get my set in, you're talking, I'm losing my pump!"
While most agree that it's okay to stare in the mirror during a workout ("to make sure you're doing everything properly," explains Ronnie), Pauly nixed the idea of turning to a personal trainer for help.
"Sometimes I look at the trainers at the gym, and I look better than them," he says. "I'm not gonna take advice from somebody who doesn't look better than me, bro."
He added, "It was my birthday this weekend, and these girls put cake on my body and ate it off. One girl said, "You have the nicest chest I ever ate cake off." I got pictures to prove it. I'll send 'em to you."
