Die Pose macht’s

Bloggerin zeigt, was wirklich hinter den perfekten Fotos steckt

Das perfekte Instagram-Foto posten ist kein Kinderspiel. Fettröllchen, Doppelkinn und Blähbauch hängen dabei häufig unschön im Weg herum. Doch um den #perfectbody optimal zu inszenieren, reichen häufig ein paar simple Tricks. Die Britin Chessie King zeigt, wie man sich den perfekten Schwanenhals schummelt und die schmale Taille zurecht-kaschiert!

Models präsentieren sich rank und schlank, Instagram-Influencerinnen inszenieren ihre perfekten Traummaße, jedes Selfie erscheint makellos. Doch bei den eigenen Bildern? Da hängen Muffin-Tops unschön über der Jeans, die Brust wirkt unvorteilhaft und die Arme baumeln schlaff am Körper runter. Aber das Problem muss nicht wochenlang mit Fitness und Nahrungsverzicht bekämpft werden: Körperspannung, eine gute Pose und der richtige Winkel reichen vollkommen aus, den traumhaften ‚Bikini Bod‘ zu zeigen. Denn auf Instagram arbeiten (fast) alle mit Tricks und Schummeleien.

"I want to look good for summer" "I want my bikini body back" SURE… but whyyyyy don't you want to look good for winter too? For Father Christmas? 🎅🏼❄️ How about FEELING good for life? FEELING like a superwoman the whole year round? Yes '8 week transformations' are amazing to get you going & if you're learning from them AMAZING… but if you just stop there after the 8 weeks, your body isn't going to stay like that forever AND you may have changed your body but not your mindset. I can change my body in 2 seconds, from the left photo to the right & in both, I feel good. I know I train consistently, I know I fuel myself well, I know it's okay to let my belly out when I'm sitting down next to the pool. SO… long term/life plan: • Educate yourself, that doesn't mean doing a personal training course, that means learning about yourself, how to train & how to eat. • Do your own research, your own body is your best friend, explore it • Find a class you love & look forward to, find a PT that works you hard but looks after you, find a friend that gives you that little boost of motivation when you need it… find things that work for YOU! So tonight, do one thing for me & let your belly release, embrace it, give it a little jiggle 💛

You know what I LOVE about people sharing these photos on Instagram, they make ME feel normal & even more okay with not being perfect 🙋🏼 I know social media has bad press with links to depression in young people BUT if you're following the right people, it can also remind you that you're not alone. The people that actually take their responsibility seriously & help educate you are the ones that should be taking over your newsfeed 💛 Some comparison photos are done very badly, with hope they come across 'real' but hopefully you're starting to filter out your Instagram just to make it purely positive. Like everything in life, you can choose whether social media makes you feel good or bad. There are so many wonderful people trying to share their stories & support you through social media, I've shared some of my faaavs on my story 👀 Andddd whilst I'm talking about stories, I absolutely love being able to show you ME, from smiley jumpy chess to sweaty mess to the times I need YOUR support… They're like my own mini vlogs 🎥 Workouts are always better when your @nikewomen @jdwomen shortshorts match your @womensbest BCAAs & shaker 🦄 #womensbest

I want you to do something for me this evening. Try the 'instagram booty pose' in the closest mirror to you… Put your hand up if you have 'life handles' like me in the right 🙋🏼 I've preached before & I'm not going to stop anytime soon… these bits are the parts of your life that you love. The nights out with your friends, the family pack of popcorn you didn't share, the seconds/thirds/fourths of Sunday roast with your family… the FUN in your life, the memories 💛 Yes I can show you ma 🍑 & cover up the squishy bits but I also want you to know that you're not alone & it is OKAY to look like the right 💃🏼 I'd much prefer to look back on my life when I'm old & wrinkly knowing I had allll the fun compared to having the most boring stories 'but at least I didn't have rolls when I bent back for that booty pose'!

Fitness Bloggerin verrät Schummel-Tricks

Wenn dann auch noch das richtige Licht (gern von oben!) eingesetzt wird, zeigen Chessis Side-by-Side-Selfies, dass unrealistische Körperideale eben nur das sind: inszeniert, getrickst und realitätsfern. „Instagram ist einer der Gründe, warum alle so perfekt aussehen wollen. Aber das ist unrealistisch und mit meinen unperfekten Bildern will ich anderen zeigen, dass sie nicht allein sind“, so King über ihr Projekt.

❌THIS IS NOT A TRANSFORMATION PHOTO❌ I've jumped on the #30secondbeforeandafter 🕐 challenge and have decided after much hesitation to share this photo. In the photo on the left I am tilting my pelvis forward, bloating my stomach as much as possible (btw I've got mad bloating skills), hunching my shoulders and slumping. In the photo on the right, I'm standing tall, I'm flexing my stomach, my spine is in proper alignment. Girls, for me this photo really reaffirmed how important it is to take your progress photos with the same posture, lighting, etc. It's not about how big of a transformation you've had. It's not about how skinny you appear to be or how heavy you were when you started your journey. It's not about how you compare to other girls who are on the same week as you. I'll tell you what it IS about: strength, integrity, fortitude–things we strive for each and every day that we wake up and choose to be honest with others, but first and foremost, honest with ourselves about our insecurities, our hopes, our struggles, our triumphs. At first this picture embarrassed me. I wasn't going to share it and I've hung onto it for days debating. I'm doing it now because it's REAL. So jump on the bandwagon or don't–either way, let's work together to keep this community transparent and goal driven! #transformationtuesday #not #honest

Ist das was für den Alltag?

Diese Art der Fitspiration hat auch andere Blogerinnen inspiriert:  Mit dem hashtag #30secondbeforeandafter beweisen sie, dass Speckrolle, Winkearm & Co. kein Selfie-Verbot bedeuten müssen. Nur im Alltag muss man sich dann der Realität und der Schwerkraft beugen – oder den ganzen Tag mit durchgestrecktem Körper, angespannten Armen und leicht angewinkelten Kopf ausharren. Oder auch nicht.
