9 things 'fitstagrammers' do that no one does in real life

Let the madness end

FITNESS INSTAGRAMMERS, OR โ€˜fitstagrammersโ€™ are the new beauty gurus when it comes to online popularity.

Seriously. People are obsessed.

Admittedly though, a lot of their goings-on on social media can be unsettlingly removed from reality.

Are fitstagrammers real people? Are they simply super buff bots? Figments of our imaginations? These actions would support all of the above theories.

1. Try to pass off tortilla wraps as pizza

Call Dominos and explain to them the grievous error youโ€™ve just made.

Yes, it might be delicious. But itโ€™s not pizza. Itโ€™s an unfolded cheesy wrap with ham on it. Do not give in to your own delusions.

2. โ€ฆ Or cauliflower as rice

Itโ€™s just blitzed veg. Not a carbohydrate in sight.

Besides, I know what one Iโ€™d rather have in a 3-in-1. Keep dreaminโ€™.

3. โ€ฆ Or coconut water ice-pops

Whatโ€™s wrong with a humble 99, eh? Calcium and all in it.

4. Those partner workouts

Itโ€™s a struggle to work out alone as it is, you want me to be lifting people up and swinging them around too?

Get the boat.

5. Handstands everywhere

Seriously. Thereโ€™s no such place as an inappropriate place to do a handstand.

Would you watch that one of ye doesnโ€™t fall over lads?!

6. Putting avocado or peanut butter in everything they eat

7. Using their baby/dog as a weight during workouts

Just take them for a walk like a normal person! They donโ€™t know what gainz are!!!

F U N ๐ŸŽŸ My workout partner didnโ€™t seem as bothered today! The following 5 exercises are perfect for days when you want to work your full body and spend a little time with either your fur-baby or your real baby! For these exercises aim to do them for as long as you can before (a) your dog gets bored (b) he tries to hump your leg... ๐Ÿ˜‚ 1๏ธโƒฃ Alternating Pressups, 2๏ธโƒฃ Sit Ups, 3๏ธโƒฃ Leg Raises, 4๏ธโƒฃ Burpees, 5๏ธโƒฃ Squat Jumps.

8. Eat protein balls

Surely nobody eats these willingly? Or as a snack? Actually like?

In love with these coconut cacao protein balls @northourwellness made using cacao #popandbottle almond milk ๐Ÿ˜ Take a look at the recipe below ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผโ € โ € 1 cup shredded coconutโ € 1/2 cup coconut oil (measure then melt it!)โ € 1/4 cup @eatingevolved roasted coconut butter (I used the sweet + salty)โ € 1/2 cup raw cashewsโ € 1/3 cup @popandbottle cacao almond milkโ € 2 scoops @primalkitchenfoods choc coconut proteinโ € 1 tbsp @navitasorganics cacao powderโ € 1 tsp @fourthandheart vanilla bean gheeโ € 1 tsp cinnamonโ € *if you're using unsweetened almond milk and coconut butter, you can add some sweetness with 3-4 medjool datesโ € โ € Combine all ingredients in a food processor. Roll into balls then coat with cacao powder or coconut shreds. Freeze on a sheet pan for an hour, then transfer to an airtight container. These are best when thawed for about 10 min before eating. #northoureats #proteinballs

Honestly, the effort of it all.

9. Go the gym everyday

Or at least train every day.

โ€œNo excuses?โ€ โ€œTrain insane or remain the same?โ€ Sure, but Iโ€™d also like a rest, thanks.

Ridiculous? Yes. Will we still continue to obsessively follow them? Again, yes.
