Looking to get as ripped as Jason Derulo? Billboard has tips from the straight man himself -- from abdominal workouts to the ideal gym music. The singer stays in tremendous shape in order to execute his dance-heavy performances, and as the cover star of Billboard's Mind & Body Issue (out May 22), the veteran pop star takes us inside his gym bag essentials and through his workout routine.

"You don't want a 6-year-old boy's abs -- you want your abs to bulk out a little bit," says Derulo after pounding through a set of elevated sit-ups with a 50-lb. weight. Aside from conquering the Hot 100 with hits like "Want To Want Me" and "Talk Dirty," Derulo conquers the seated rows, the pull-up bar and the one-legged lunge. Watch Derulo get physical below in this Billboard exclusive.
