Your complete guide to working out like the Jersey Shore gang

30 April 2018

For many folks, working out and washing your skivvies while on vacation would be unthinkable. But for (most of) the Jersey Shore: Family Vacation cast, vaca is turning out to be a prime time to remain in peak condition.

Though we hadn't heard the famed GTL (Gym, Tan, Laundry) acronym in, oh, about six years, Snooki, JWOWW, Pauly, Ronnie, Vinny and The Situation are making sure we never forget it, per the show's latest ep.

Read on for a few ways that you, too, can enjoy the perks of squats, spray tanning and sorting whites from colors during your next beach vacation:

1. Put in the necesssary prep work

As in, partake in T-shirt time and apply a full face of makeup.

2. Repeat the "gym, tan, laundry" mantra often

Bonus points for saying it like a computer robot.

3. Encourage your workout crew

Like Snooki told JWOWW mid-lift: "You look like a body builder, I love you. Get it, B**ch!"

4. Embrace your feminine side with a few high knees.

5. Grab a candy bar and hit up the treadmill.

If weights aren't your thing (or if your situation is "under construction"), there are always other options.

6. Do a Deena

If all else fails, skip the GTL entirely and lay out by the pool (or the ocean).
