Exercise for This Many Minutes for a Longer Life
A new study published in the journal Circulation has found that bursts of exercise as short as twelve minutes can increase your life expectancy.The study, conducted by researchers at the Harvard-affiliated Massachusetts General Hospital, looked at the levels of hundreds of different metabolites in 411 middle-aged men and women before and after about twelve minutes of strenuous exercise. They found that the amount of DMGV, a biomarker linked to increased risk of diabetes and fatty liver disease, dropped 18 percent. Similarly, Glutamate, which is associated with heart disease, diabetes, and shorter life expectancy, decreased 29 percent.

Don’t take these warning signs lightly.
Jean Barnette just shared a video on TikTok of herself doing an Olympic-level performance with a hula hoop, set to Bonnie Tyler’s“Holding Out for a Hero” (because, why not?). Jean, 62, gets right on in there at the start of the video.
She moves her arms up and down and inside and out of her hula hoop while it rotates. She casually spins around and swivels her hips in time to the music and gives a few hip thrusts to keep things going. The whole time, Jean is wearing sunglasses, a baseball cap, and a casual“I do this all the time” look on her face.
While the video is amazing, the comments are everything.“Tell me you’re a queen without telling me you’re a queen,” one fan wrote.“This is the coolest person I know,” another said.“What kind of sorcery do we have here?” someone else asked.

But seriously, how does she do this?! Jean said in the comments that she’s just“hitting the hoop back and forth” but it looks a little more complicated than that.
For the record, Jean actually does this kind of stuff for a living. Her TikTok describes her as a“professional hula hoop and fire performer,” so, yeah.
She has plenty of other impressive videos, like this one:
