We're bananas for Santana, Glee's snarky, scene-stealing cheerleader. We caught up with actress Naya Rivera to find out how she got those crazy toned legs and about her sporty (or not!) past.

Go-to exercise: "Legs and butt get the most attention in the Cheerios uniform, so those are my target areas. Lots of squats!"

Least favorite exercise: "I hate crunches. I do planks -- traditional and side planks -- instead for my abs."

Can't-live-without foods: "When we did the Glee Live tour, I had to have hummus and guacamole on hand for healthy snacks."

My athletic past: "My dad always wanted me to be sporty, so I tried softball. I was 12 and tiny, and all the other girls were huge and looked 25. I was too afraid of the ball to bat."

Glee alter ego: "In high school I was most like Artie and Rachel. I knew what I wanted, like Rachel, although I wasn't as obnoxious. But like Artie, I was a nerd, always trying to fit in and get my hair to lie flat."
