When you’re scrolling through Instagram it’s pretty likely you’re going to see some #fitspo posts.
The type of photo that shows two images side by side; a ‘before’ with a belly and an ‘after’ with rock hard abs.
But before you start feeling bad about your own body being more #bananasplitspo than anything else, it’s important to note that these transformation photos aren’t always what they appear.
Fitness personality Emily Skye wants people to know that a lot of these body transformation photos are not what they seem, so she’s sharing the tricks people are using to make them look super fit – in just a few seconds.
Skye shared the photo above, which she calls her “three-second transformation”, with her 1.8 million followers on Instagram, explaining that the photo on the left is of her with her stomach pushed out and the right is with her stomach flexed.
