Chyba każda z Was kojarzy niesamowite instagramowe metamorfozy. Ludzie dzielą się nierzadko swoimi niesamowitymi osiągnięciami – pokazują efektu treningów i diet. Zmiany bywają spektakularne… Podobnie jak towarzyszące im czasem manipulacje…

Niestety, nie wszyscy rozumieją, że zdrowy styl życia jest ważniejszy niż efekty, a te rzadko pojawiają się ekspresowo. W takich sytuacjach rozwiązaniem stało się przekłamywanie rzeczywistości. W końcu nie trudno pokazać światu, jak wspaniale prezentuje się Wasza sylwetka pod odpowiednim kątem i z odpowiednim oświetleniem. Efekt potrafi zaskoczyć, co nie znaczy, że szły za nim godziny treningów.

O tym, jak ważne są te dwa elementy fotek i jak niewiele trzeba do tego, by osiągnąć efekt wow, postanowiła uświadomić swoje fanki popularna blogerka fitness, Lauren Tickner.

Zrobiła to przy pomocy jednego instagramowego posta, na który złożyły się trzy fotki. Do każdej z nich ustawiła się odrobinę inaczej. W zależności od pozycji, jej zgrabna, wysportowana figura zmieniała się zupełnie…

ZOBACZ TEŻ: Tak, do TEJ niesamowitej metamorfozy potrzebne były tylko… rajstopy

Kolaż wygląda, jakby pozowały do niego trzy różne osoby. W rzeczywistości, wystarczyło 30 sekund, jedna dziewczyna i jej świadomość na temat tego, jak wiele zmienia poza. Oczywiście Lauren postarała się także o mocny opis tego, co zaprezentowała na zdjęciu…

Nic dziwnego, że post blogerki stała się momentalnie prawdziwym hitem.

POSTURE changes EVERYTHING! Posing is SO powerful: what you see of people on social media is NOT how they look 24/7 in real life! 👉🏼 I know that if I arch my spine and pop my hip, I can make my stomach look flatter & my butt look bigger. Of course, some people DO have big bums & flat stomachs 💖 Similarly, slouching and 'letting go’ of my stomach after a big meal makes it appear more bloated: it’s just how it is! Tucking your spine will make your butt look flatter: you can literally make your body look SO different, just by standing differently! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ People will always speak negatively about others: it’s horrible, but sadly it is just a fact of life. I receive all of these comments 👆🏼 all the time, but thankfully for the more negative ones, I have thick skin. I used to even say these things to myself 😔 BUT now I have learned that if I see a 'bad’ photo of myself, it is OKAY!!!!! It doesn’t matter!!! As we see here, angles and posture are eveeeerything! Similarly, IDGAF if other people want to comment mean things, because I have learned to accept my body and love it for what it is. Your body is so incredibly powerful: give it some credit🙌🏼 I also know how to pose to make myself look 'best’. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I don’t care how 'overdone’ people say these photos are: I think they are SO important. I sometimes still stumble across a photo and think „agh, I wish I looked like that…” BUT, they uploaded that photo for a REASON! They probably took 10000 others and chose that ONE photo. (I know I’m guilty of taking looooads before having ma money shot ✨) PLUS, for all I know, they photoshopped that photo! Take EVERYTHING with a pinch of salt! #StrengthFeed – EDIT: this photo is to prove a point 👍🏼 – sometimes one may see a photo of themselves and think 'agh, I hate how I look’ …but then you have to remember that you may just be MOVING & caught off guard, so your body isn’t looking 'normal’! Yes, I know I am overemphasising each 'pose’ ☺️ – P.S, purchase my training/macro-tracking guides at:

The secret to abs when bulking… ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #HalfNattyLighting ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In all seriousness, realise that a calorie surplus should NOT be something you’re afraid of. It is necessary for making GAINS 🙌🏼 (other than when you first start/first start training properly.. aka the #NewbieGains phase). And maintaining abs should NOT be a goal (I only have abs because of my GENETICS: I hold fat on other places such as my arms and …chin 😂, whereas other people may hold it in different places)! Myself & @thomaspabanifitness were chatting about this and we both used to be afraid of pushing our calories UP in the fear of gaining excess body fat! BUT, a sensible muscle gain phase does NOT require gaining a crazy amount of body fat! Dirty bulking is NOT the answer: a moderate calorie surplus is! 🙌🏼 I’ve been being a bit of a 🍆 the past few weeks and literally ignoring any aspect of 'balance’ and totally forgetting that macros are even a thing.. But doing this will only make you gain body fat rapidly, feel sluggish & lethargic… and potentially even struggle mentally (mainly with the excess fat gain – I sure as hell know that I struggle with that) The Ultimate Guide To Tracking Macros (one of my ebooks) goes into massive detail on this topic… and many more! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Who’s doing the @strength_feed guide or using my macro guide?! #StrengthFeed #StrengthFeedGuide – P.S this gym is SICK! @fightcitygym

I wish someone would look at me the way I look at my @pescience shaker… 😂 ‼️I was 'supposed’ to train today. But instead… I LISTENED to my body. I am taking a rest day 🙌🏼 It won’t ruin my progress, and this caption explains why👇🏼 (P.S I uploaded a new YouTube vid this morn, the link is in my bio) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’ve been feeling exhausted, sluggish, grumpy… and just not myself the past few days! I have been EXTREMELY irritable, overeating every evening… and it occurred to me last night: it’s because I am so goddam exhausted! This has caused both my stomach and my anxiety to flare up, too 😬 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ‼️I know that this extra rest day will NOT damage my progress. Why? …OVERALL TRAINING VOLUME 🙌🏼 Sure, I usually train 4 days per week. But this week, I’ll train 3 time & it won’t ruin my progress whatsoever! ✅The most important thing throughout the week is total training volume: if you are still hitting the reps and sets at the weight you 'should’ be hitting (with good form), you WILL progress, despite how you choose to split that up. 💪🏼This is the beauty of the #StrengthFeedGuide: it teaches you how to do this & gives you options for training programmes (yep, three programmes in one guide 😎): you can get it at: 💪🏼It also teaches you HOW to create your OWN training plan (aka you get to select from over 100 exercises & slot them in, in the most optimal way) Sunday I will be sending out three days worth of workouts taken from the guide for you to try, if you’re on my email list! Sign up by swiping up on my story! I LOVE training so incredibly much – it is why and how I have been doing this whole 'fitness’ thing for so long. It truly is my passion, as well as helping others. However, at this moment in time, I don’t have the option to take a nap or sleep a little longer at night: I get home at around 7:30PM. After cooking, eating, doing any chores (washing up, tidying), it’s time for me to sleep so I’m not tired for work the next day! I wake up at 5AM to train, before I get the train at 7ish 😅 …so, my only option was to ditch the gym, jump out of bed& dash to the train. I feel SO much better for it 🙌🏼 #StrengthFeed 💪🏼
