The Upper-Body Workout That Gives J.Lo Her Strong, Toned Arms

When J.Lo gives us a peek into her workout routine, we pay attention. The famously fit star (can you believe she's 48?) always looks incredible, whether she's slaying the red carpet or fighting corruption as police officer Harlee Santos in her show Shades of Blue.

Although genetics surely play a role in Lopez's insanely toned physique, it's no secret that she's seriously dedicated to her fitness—the A-lister often works out with Tracy Anderson and has even been spotted hitting the gym with The Rock. Yesterday, we got a glimpse into how Lopez gets her super-toned arms when she shared her upper-body workout with followers in a video on Instagram.

In the snaps (which she captioned "Gettin' it in!!"), Lopez proves she's a resistance band master by demonstrating a series of intense bicep curls. Celebrity trainer David Kirsch, who works with Lopez, tells Health that the move is called the bent over resistance row with curl. "I love to keep workouts with Jennifer high energy and high intensity, making sure the full-body workouts are fresh and always changing," he says.

If you often use free weights on arm day, resistance bands are a great way to change things up; by forcing you to literally resist your own body weight, these stretchy plastic bands will take any workout to the next level.

"I like using resistance bands because these workouts are something my clients can easily do with no time at the gym, and they are so transportable," Kirsch says. 

In addition to strengthening the upper body, Kirsch tells us that this move also helps tighten and tone the quads, glutes, and core. The tool J.Lo is using is mounted to a wall, but you can modify the move with a loose resistance band by stepping on it in the center and pulling the ends towards your chest.

How Long Will the Total Solar Eclipse Last?

This article originally appeared on Time.com. 

The upcoming total solar eclipse, which you can watch live on TIME.combeginning at 12 p.m. ET on Monday, will cross the U.S. in less than two hours, and Americans in some states will only witness seconds of it.

The once-in-a-lifetime event on Aug. 21 will engulf parts of 14 states in sudden darkness when it moves from the West Coast diagonally down toward the East Coast. The path of totality, which starts in Oregon and ends in South Carolina, is about 70 miles wide.

It’s the first total solar eclipse with a trajectory exclusive to America, as well as the first total eclipse of the sun that will be visible from the contiguous U.S. since 1979. Total solar eclipses can be seen when the moon passes directly between the sun and the Earth and the moon completely covers the entire face of the sun.

Watch Live as the 2017 Total Solar Eclipse Crosses the U.S.

Here’s what to know about the timeframe of the August total solar eclipse:

How long is the upcoming total solar eclipse?

The total solar eclipse, which has been dubbed “The Great American Eclipse,” will last for about an hour and a half overall, but each city that catches the eclipse will only see it for a matter of minutes or seconds. The moon's shadow travels at roughly 2,400 mph over the face of the Earth, according to Bill Kramer, a well-known expert in the eclipse chasing community.

Which cities are the first and last to see the eclipse in totality?

Skygazers in Lincoln Beach, Ore. will witness the rare event first. A partial eclipse begins there at 9:05 a.m. PST and totality starts at 10:16 a.m. The eclipse then makes its way through Idaho, Wyoming, Nebraska, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee and Georgia, clipping several other states on the way. It ends near Charleston, S.C. at 2:48 p.m. EDT, just about an hour and a half after it began.

Which city will see the eclipse for the longest?

NASA says the longest duration of totality will be near Carbondale, Ill., where the sun will be completely covered for two minutes and 40 seconds. Some places, like Kansas City, Kans.— which is at the edge of totality — will only witness totality for about 20 seconds. The total solar eclipse will be visible in a hard-to-reach part of Montana for less than a minute. Here's where you can see what the eclipse will look like for you.

This Viral Video Shows the Most Bizarre-Looking Leg Cramp We've Ever Seen

– health.com

[brightcove:5315457854001 default]

A video of what is quite possibly the most painful-looking leg cramp ever has gone viral. The 50-second clip, posted Monday by Angel Bermudez on Facebook, has racked up 16 million views and more than 177,000 shares.

"After the workout. Start to relax and then this happens. Painful yes it was," Bermudez wrote in the caption. The footage shows the muscles of his calf contracting and squirming, almost as if something were inside his leg, right under the skin.

Take a look, if you dare. (Warning: There's some NSFW language in the caption.)

RELATED: Here’s How You Can Use a Lacrosse Ball to Release Your Calves

"This is what a cramp looks like," you can hear Bermudez saying between grunts and groans, clearly in significant discomfort.

Plenty of commenters said they found the alien-like motion of Bermudez's cramp flat-out disturbing. But others had clearly been through similar pain, and were quick to offer advice: stand up and walk, stretch, eat a banana, drink more water.

Although we don't usually recommend following health advice from strangers on Facebook, in this instance, they're on to something. Those solutions might actually help.

Leg cramps are sudden and involuntary muscle contractions, and—even though they can hurt like heck—they're usually harmless. Leg cramps are thought to be caused by some kind of irritation or activation of nerves that tell the muscles to contract, and stay that way.

The irritation can be brought on by a range of things, from dehydration to a mineral deficiency, or even pregnancy. Ramping up your workout intensity too quickly, or over-training tired muscles can also lead to cramping. (For more on the possible triggers, check out "13 Causes of Leg Cramps—And How to Stop Them.")

You can usually cure a cramp (especially one that comes up quickly after a workout) by hydrating with water, replacing electrolytes and minerals lost through sweat, and gentle stretching. But check with a doctor if you have frequent leg cramps that don't seem to be related to physical activity or your diet. Some underlying health conditions, like peripheral arterial disease and multiple sclerosis, can also cause leg cramps.

This Is the Vibrating Foam Roller Khloé Kardashian Swears By

– health.com

[brightcove:4933150325001 default]

Khloé Kardashian always keeps her social media followers up-to-date on her latest fitness obsessions, whether she's posting her daily workout routine on Instagram or sharing her gym bag essentials on her official app. Yesterday, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, 33, took to Snapchat to reveal her current must-have piece of workout equipment: an upgraded version of the classic foam roller.

In a series of snaps, Kardashian raved about her HyperIce Vyper 3 Speed Vibrating Foam Roller ($179, amazon.com), saying she uses it after many different workouts. And if the name doesn't make it clear, yes—this foam roller vibrates.

RELATED: Can Foam Rolling Really Get Rid of Cellulite?

At first glance, you might not even realize that the HyperIce Vyper is a foam roller; the sides feature buttons and lights that make it look more like a boom box than workout tool. But with three different vibration speeds, it claims to combine the practice of foam rolling with vibrating technology to relieve muscle pain and stiffness.

Kardashian isn't the only HyperIce Vyper fan. The product has over 150 customer reviews on Amazon, and 70% of reviewers gave it a 5-star rating. Many of those reviews echo the reality star's claim that the vibrating tool comes in handy after many different workout routines, from running to HIIT to yoga.

"This thing was sent by the workout angels," says Amazon user Mark Aardvark.

Experts agree that foam rolling can deliver some real benefits. "There's ample evidence that this kind of massage helps boost tissue repair, increase mobility, and decrease soreness," Kari Brown Budde, DPT, a sports physical therapist in Columbus, Ohio, told Health in a previous interview.

But if you're not willing to invest nearly $180 in the vibrating version, the good news is that even more basic foam rollers can help soothe knots and relieve post-workout muscle pain. We like the RumbleRoller ($80; amazon.com) and the super-portable SKLZ Hydro-Roller ($38; amazon.com). Try foam rolling everywhere from your shins to your glutes to your IT band for full-body pain relief.

Why Sunlight Is So Good For You

– www.health.com

[brightcove:4928980315001 default]

This article originally appeared on Time.com.

Even Hippocrates believed that the changing seasons had something to do with health—and that the key was how much available daylight there was during different times of the year.

Many centuries later, it’s clear he was onto something. As people spend more time indoors staring at computer and television screens, scientists are starting to appreciate how exposure to sunlight affects various body systems.

The most interesting support for our dependence on daylight emerged with a condition called Seasonal Affective Disorder, or SAD. The term was coined by Dr. Normal Rosenthal at Georgetown University to describe the so-called winter blues: the lethargy and feelings of sadness and hopelessness that come when the weather forces people to spend more time indoors and the season provides little opportunity for exposure to natural light. Some people have speculated that our modern lifestyle, which keeps people indoors under artificial light for so many hours, may be encouraging a form of SAD year-round.

Rosenthal found that while not everyone is as strongly affected by a lack of sunlight, for the people who are, light boxes that blast a few minutes of bright light in the frequency of natural sunlight each morning can help to elevate mood and re-energize them to face the day.

Studies of shift workers also support the possible role that exposure to sunlight has on mood. Messing up the normal light and dark cycles by sleeping during the day and being awake at night, under artificial light, can disrupt the body’s metabolism. That can have domino effects on nearly everything: how we break down energy from food, how strong our immune systems are and the vast array of brain chemicals and other substances that contribute to mood, weight, energy and more. People who consistently work night shifts, for example, tend to be heavier than people who don’t.

There is also intriguing evidence finding that people who work at night and don’t get exposed to daylight may produce less melatonin, a hormone that is dependent on light. Normally, people produce more melatonin toward the evening, as the body gets ready for sleep. As more light creeps in during the morning, the levels of the hormone start dropping again. In winter months when the days are shorter, melatonin levels may peak earlier or later in the day, which can lead to some of the mood changes linked to SAD. Studies in shift workers found that less melatonin may also lead to lower levels of important chemicals the body uses to repair DNA. That could potentially lead to more mutated cells that can trigger cancer.

Some studies also suggest that the light cycle may regulate the production of blood stem cells from the bone marrow. More research here is needed, but that could be important for the timing of bone marrow transplants for cancer patients, and hitting the transplant at just the right time of the light cycle may improve the chances of harvesting enough cells from donors…

7 HIIT Mistakes You’re Probably Making

[brightcove:5211279051001 default]

This article originally appeared on DailyBurn.com.

Considering HIIT — or high-intensity interval training — is known to burn fat, improve metabolic health and increase VO2 max levels, you may have jumped on board enthusiastically. After all, it’s known to fire up your gains rather quickly and efficiently. “People like HIIT because it removes one major barrier to not working out: ‘I don’t have time,’” says New York City-based fitness coach Laura Miranda, DPT, CSCS.

HIIT involves alternating between “work” intervals of high intensity with “recovery” or rest periods of lower intensity. Most HIIT workouts call for work periods of 20 to 30 seconds (even up to 90 seconds), explains Craig Weller, exercise specialist at Precision Nutrition. The work to rest radio may be 2:1 (like in a traditional Tabata-style workout), 3:1, 1:2 and so on, he says.

No doubt HIIT is one amazing workout, but there are some aspects of the workout that you may be doing wrong. These mishaps could sabotage your efforts and diminish your results. Here’s how to ensure you get the calorie-torching sessions right.

7 Mistakes That Are Hurting Your HIIT Workout

1. Failing to Warm Up

HIIT is demanding, and it’s not a good idea to pop into the gym right from bed or immediately after sitting for a full day. “At that time, your neuromuscular connections are not firing as well as they should be,” says Miranda. If you skip the warm-up, you may only be able to push at max effort, starting halfway through the workout. (Womp, womp.) Prepare your body with dynamic functional movements that are similar to the moves you’ll do in a workout. For example, slow and controlled side lunges in prep for skater jumps.

2. Planning Long Workouts

When done correctly, a HIIT workout doesn’t have to be long — it can actually last anywhere from four to 20 minutes, says Weller. Miranda caps her clients at 30 minutes per HIIT routine. The catch: You shouldn’t be able to do more than that if you’re truly pushing yourself during the “working” intervals. Schedule a longer workout and you’ll likely hold yourself back during the intense pushes in order to conserve energy. “At a point, you’re getting diminishing returns. You’ll be working out longer but not as efficiently,” says Miranda. Don’t you want to spare a few minutes with HIIT, anyway?

3. Not Going Hard Enough

During the intense intervals, “science shows that you have to push at 80 to 90 percent of your max heart rate to achieve results,” says Miranda. If you don’t have a heart rate monitor, think of this on a rate of perceived exertion scale (or RPE), meaning how hard you feel like you’re working…

U.S. Scientists Use CRISPR to Fix Genetic Disease in Human Embryos For the First Time

– www.health.com

[brightcove:5439635497001 default]

This article originally appeared on Time.com.

Scientists have successfully used CRISPR, a tool that cuts DNA with more precision than any other genome editing technology, to fix a genetic defect in human embryos that can cause serious heart problems, according to a landmark new study in the journal Nature. This is the first use of CRISPR on human embryos in the U.S.

Chinese scientists have reported using CRISPR to correct genetic defects in human embryos, but some of the embryos they used weren’t viable.

Shoukhrat Mitalipov, from Oregon Health & Science University, collaborated with researchers at the Salk Institute, as well as with scientists from China and South Korea, to improve on those results. They applied CRISPR at the earliest stage possible—when the embryo is still a single cell—to ensure that the genetic changes they introduced were propagated to every cell of the embryo as it divided and developed. Because the embryos were created for research purposes only, none were allowed to develop beyond three days.

MORE: First CRISPR Human Trial Approved in the U.S.

CRISPR, which was introduced in 2012, precisely cuts DNA but does not repair it. If combined with other techniques, however, researchers say it could both cut out disease-causing genes and replace them with healthy versions to essentially cure genetic human diseases. So in order to further the science, Mitalipov and his colleagues wanted to test what happened when CRISPR was used in a human embryo. Theoretically, once CRISPR broke the DNA in the appropriate place to cut out a mutation, the cell’s natural repair mechanisms would kick in to repair the injury, fixing the defect this time with the proper code—much like how a word processor’s autocorrect function fixes spelling mistakes.

Unfortunately, this process isn’t very efficient in adult cells in which CRISPR has been tested, so Mitalipov expected similarly low yields in the embryos.

To his surprise, however, he found that embryos were very effective at fixing breaks in DNA.

He created embryos that contained a specific defect known to cause a heart condition by fertilizing healthy donor eggs from various women with sperm from a man who carried the genetic mutation for the disease. He then introduced CRISPR to splice out the mutated gene in more than 50 embryos just after the sperm fertilized the eggs, when the embryos were still just one cell. Several days later, 72% of the embryos showed no sign of the mutated gene; the gene was essentially corrected in all of their cells.

MORE: How the Science of CRISPR Can Change Your Genes

It turns out that the embryo relies on the normal copy of the gene, in this case from the egg, to fix the break made when CRISPR cut out the mutated gene. They key was to introduce CRISPR early enough so the embryo’s own DNA repair system could fix the mutated gene. That’s encouraging for one potential use of CRISPR in the future as a way to correct inherited genetic disease, says Mitalipov, since the embryo seems to have a built-in, reliable way of repairing the injury caused by splicing out an abnormal gene…

You’ve probably cranked out a bunch of bicep curls and triceps kickbacks throughout your days at the gym. And while these moves work great for building muscles in your upper body, a few creative takes on your typical arm workout will help you carve even better results. That’s especially true if the exercises mix a few movements into one, so you work more muscles simultaneously (that means you’ll burn more calories, too). Enter: These eight creative arm exercises you probably haven’t tried before.

When you say you want sculpted bis, tris, shoulders and back muscles — we say master these moves. Flex it out with this ultimate upper body workout.

8 Arm Exercises for a Better Upper Body Workout

Perform each exercise below, in order, for 30 seconds each. Try to eliminate rest time between each move. After the eighth exercise, take a 60-second breather, then repeat two more times. To really intensify the strengthening power, pick up a pair of dumbbells. Soon you’ll want to bare those arms all the time.

1. Bicep Curl in Stationary Bear Crawl

Show off your guns by working your biceps (the front of your arm) from a different angle than the standard palm-forward posture. While you do it, you’ll be chiseling your core thanks to the stability-testing stance.

How to: Start on your hands and knees, wrists under shoulders and knees under hips (a). Lift your knees an inch or two off the ground and hold them there, back flat and abs tight (b). Turning your palm up and elbow out to the side, bend your right elbow, curling your hand up to your chest. Your right arm should be perpendicular to your left (c). Place your right hand back down and repeat on the left side (d). Continue alternating.

2. Tricep Chop

You’ll strengthen the back of your arms, aka your triceps, as you perfect this rotational chop. Consider your obliques toned, too.

How to: Start standing with feet hip-width apart, slight bend in your knees (a). Clasp your hands together (or hold a dumbbell on both sides) and bring them to your left side, turning your shoulders and head to the left. Your hips should stay facing forward (b). Then, swiftly move your hands overhead, straightening your arms (c). Bend at the elbows to bring your hands behind your head. Keep your elbows squeezing in close to your ears (d). Straighten your arms back overhead (e). Next, bring your hands down to your right side, twisting your upper body to the right (f). Return to the tricep extension and repeat, as you continue alternating sides for the chop.
