Jennifer Lopez turned 50 last month. Now, I know what you're thinking. A lot of people turn 50, right? It's exciting, but it's not newsworthy. But what's incredible is that Jenny from the Block doesn't look a day over 30. I mean, have you seen her six pack?
However, she's made it known that her incredible body isn't just the result of good genes. J-Lo works hard to achieve her toned muscles. Aside from exercising almost every day, she follows a strict diet.Check out J-Lo working up a sweat in the gym:
First and foremost, the singer and actor drinks water consistently, but especially after a workout. In an interview with HELLO!, she revealed one of her top health secrets: "First of all, hydrate. Drinking plenty of water, especially before a workout, can help you push harder and get more out of your exercise routine."
On top of that, Jennifer doesn't smoke, or drink alcohol and coffee. And she ensures to get eight hours sleep each night to boot.
In regards to food, J-Lo's advice is exactly what you'd think it'd be. Stick to clean, healthy, non-processed foods that are filled with protein. Even when she's out for dinner, she'll opt for fish and vegetables or a salad. As for snacks, she told HELLO!: "I always carry fruit and veggies with me to give me something to snack on between meals."
And it's no secret that Jennifer loves to dance. She's convinced that's what keeps her so happy in life, so she never skips a workout, even if she's feeling tired or jet lagged. Jennifer continued to the publication;
"Dance has always been a huge part of my life and taking the time to move my body and do something that's so good for me is key to my happiness. And I really believe that when you take care of yourself and work to stay healthy, you're better able to take care of those you love. So working out is definitely a priority for me."Jennifer Lopez even practices her dance moves with Alex Rodriguez:
Outside of dancing, she does literally every other workout, from HIIT and kickboxing to light weights and circuit training. There's nothing that Jen can't do.
So, you heard it here first, if you want to still be fit at 50 years old, you better start eating right and hitting the gym. That's what Jennifer Lopez would say, anyway.And if you haven't seen the trailer for J-Lo's upcoming stripper/heist movie, Hustlers, check it out below:
