Aside from spending the summer sober, The Situation is going through all kinds of changes as he starts shooting Jersey Shore Season 6. We first noticed his massive muscles when he was moving in earlier this week, and now we spotted the abs which earned international fame as Mike flaunted his newly buff figure on the beach in Seaside Heights.

“The Situation” was on full display yesterday (June 6) as Mike and Deena Nicole (who was also supporting a new beach bod) spent a relaxing day on the shore, getting their tan on and smoking cigs. So what do you think of Mike’s new body? His arms are huge, as in Ronnie-huge, and his 8-pack looks like it’s seen the inside of gym every day since Mike got sober.

Do you like the new and improved Situation? Or does he look a little too Popeye-esque?

Catch the premiere of Snooki and JWOWW’s new spin-off on Thursday, June 21 on MTV.

The Pauly D Project airs Thursdays at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT on MTV.
