Eva, a longtime fan of exercising on a trampoline, shared an Instagram Story of herself this weekend doing arm curls with two clear bottles. "No weights…no problem," she captioned the photo. (Her trampoline was right behind her.) No weights yourself? No problem! David Zinczenko, author of the best-seller Zero Belly Diet, says "try the Zero Belly Snaxercise Circuit. This 10-minute quickie delivers the benefits of much longer workouts. In fact, scientists in New Zealand say that short bouts of exercise like this may control blood sugar even better than a single, continuous workout. For snaxercise, you'll need a clock or the stopwatch function on your smart phone. Do the following in order: 

1 minute jumping rope

1 minute jumping jacks

1 minute high knees

1 minute burpees

1 minute bodyweight squats

This is Her AM Routine

"I try to wake up and immediately work out. I get up, put on my sunblock and running hat, and I'm off. I like to work out in the morning because the day gets away from me and I will never do it in the afternoon — I get too tired. After I run I eat probably the same thing every morning, which is egg whites with spinach and turkey bacon," she told The Cut.


She Meditates

"Everything is about balance," she told the Cut. "I think people waste more time than they think. They think 'I don't have time to meditate, or I don't have time to work out,' and yet they have time to be on Instagram for 30 minutes — like, that could have been their meditation session. You have to prioritize your time and efforts toward wellness."


She Has a Healthy Outlook

"I remember after my divorce, I was so thin and everyone kept saying how great I looked and it was probably the most unhealthy place I've ever been," Longoria told Health. "So it was funny what people would see as 'healthy.' In my worst time, people were saying I've never looked better. [But now] I have a great diet and exercise routine and I try to have a healthy outlook."


She's a Veg Head

"I could easily be a vegetarian because I love vegetables so much and I feel like L.A. is a place that can support healthy living," Longoria told InStyle. "I love cooking with vegetables and I have a secret for cooking with vegetables, [which] is that they don't need a lot. A lot of people cover them in cheese or cover them in a sauce, and vegetables really only need olive oil."


She Snacks Like This

"I love to cook. But when I'm on set, I have food delivery sent there. Before I could afford a food delivery system, I would make my breakfast and lunch, I'd pack some snacks, and put almonds in my purse. I was always prepared because I was always hungry," she told Health.


This is Her Secret to Looking Good

 "I do a lot. I'm a runner, I do yoga, I do pilates, I do SoulCycle and I'm just constantly mixing it up," the actress told People. "Everybody thinks there's some kind of secret to looking good, but it's not a secret. It's diet and exercise," she added.
