Melissa Gorga Reveals Her Fitness Secrets

Teresa Giudice was sadly stripped of her title of Hottest Bikini Bod among the Real Housewives of New Jersey when we saw the H'Wives head to Punta Cana last season.

Melissa Gorga's post-baby bod blew Tre's out of the water and now Melissa is dishing her fitness secrets for keeping her mommy-of-three body svelte.

The 32-year-old singer admits to US Magazine that she doesn't do a ton of cardio, but she does do strength-training work outs three times a week with a personal trainer. Want to tone up like Melissa and wear sparkly pop star outfits, too? Try out these tricks:

Arms: Bicep curls and tricep kickbacks with dinky weights. We're talking no more than 10 pounds. Melissa says this helps her achieve a "more feminine look." Add in single-arm rows, chest presses, 60-second planks three times in a row, and shoulder presses for guns a la Gorga.

Abs: Crunches, crunches, crunches! Fifteen minutes of standard, oblique, and bicycle crunches according to her trainer. And to reach those pesky lower abs, try leg lifts. Feeling the burn yet?

Legs: Melissa does walking lunges holding 20 pound weights all around her New Jersey mansion. You may opt simply to do them up and down a corridor of a gym, though.

Butt: Keep it old school! "I do a lot of squats, but I love, love old-fashioned Jane Fonda moves! They work better for me than anything else," Melissa insists. "I lie on the ground on my side and rotate my top leg up and out."

Don't forget the spray tan to make those muscles POP. Happy sweating!
