We Hate to Break It to You, but Sweating a Lot Doesn’t Mean Your Workout Is the Best

You've probably seen numerous workouts promising to make you sweat like never before, implying that the sweatier you are, the harder you've worked and the closer you are to achieving your fitness goals. But here's the thing, how much you sweat doesn't determine if you've worked harder, if you're getting stronger, or anything like that. It's just sweat — kind of. Is Sweat an Indicator of a Good Workout? If you're wondering if there's a correlation between how much sweat you've produced during a given workout and if it means your training better, Lindsay Baker, PhD, senior principal scientist at the Gatorade Sports Science Institute, told POPSUGAR, "No, the two are not necessarily correlated although it can be." While your sweat more than likely isn't an indicator of having an optimal workout, "The intensity that you're working out is definitely an important factor that determines how much you sweat, but it's not the only ..

Estée Lauder Is Sending a Product Into Space, Because Even Astronauts Love Their Serums

As a company, Estée Lauder has done a lot within the beauty industry over the last few decades, but the brand has never launched one of its own products into space — until now.

Heres What a Muscle Knot Really Is, According to a Physical Therapist

On and off for what seems like forever, a muscle knot has tormented the same exact spot on my upper back — right above my shoulder blade, just to the left of my neck. The dull pain makes me fidgety, but also tense and rigid. I grab and pull and massage at the sensitive spot until I either feel some sort of release or forget about it altogether. The other day, though, coincidentally while dealing with the nagging pain of a muscle knot, I realized that I didn't even know what muscle knots really were, or how they're formed. So, I tapped Curtis Wu PT, DPT, OCS, SCS, CSCS, clinical specialist in rehab at HSS Paramus, for an explanation. "Muscle 'knots,' trigger points, and myofascial pain syndrome are terms that are used to describe the experience of sensitive spots in soft tissue that are commonly associated with injury, or in people with persistent neck/back pain," Wu says. The Mayo Clinic also notes that repetitive motions, overuse, and poor postures can also u..

A Psychologist and a Special-Needs Teacher’s Tips to Help Kids With Disabilities Learn at Home

For parents of kids with disabilities, virtual learning presents a new set of challenges. Because many students receive additional attention and hands-on support from their special-education teachers, emulating that environment at home is nearly impossible. To help parents and caregivers who may be feeling frustrated with virtual or hybrid learning, we asked experts for their best tips for helping students with disabilities learn at home. 1. Create a Visual Schedule Understandably, kids with disabilities may take a longer time to adjust to learning at home. If your child has difficulty focusing or is easily overwhelmed by a weekly schedule, try laying out each day's classes in an easy-to-understand format. "For children who are following the hybrid learning model, remembering what the schedule looks like from week to week can be anxiety-provoking," explained Dr. Liz Nissim Matheis, a psychologist and founder of Psychological & Educational Consulting and a parent to a child with ..

‘Blackbird’ showcases Susan Sarandon as a family copes with a fatal illness

“Blackbird” assembles a terrific cast in the service of fairly mundane movie — a small-boned production about a woman facing a terminal diagnosis, summoning her family to say goodbye. The premise and performers yield some emotional moments, inadvertently heightened by recent events. Yet as a whole, the film never quite takes wing. [contfnewc] Susan Sarandon is Lily, whose shuffling, strenuous effort just to get up and down the stairs reveal the way that ALS is ravaging her body. Before the condition worsens, she plans to quietly take her own life with the help of her husband (Sam Neill), but not before spending the weekend in their idyllic beach house with her family.[contfnewc] [contfnewc] The situation is, at first, pleasantly awkward, and an ideal independent-film concept — putting a group of people together in a single location for a very finite period of time. That creates not only an inexpensive showcase for the actors, but little to distract from their contributions.[contfnewc]..
