Frisky Rant: Actually, I Don’t Find Your “Inspirational” Workout Pics Inspiring At All

Frisky Rant: Actually, I Don’t Find Your “Inspirational” Workout Pics Inspiring At All

Last week, I wrote about Jen Selter, a 20-year-old Long Island woman who supposedly has the “best butt on Instagram.” While Jen does indeed have a fantastic derriere, I was more interested in what she told the New York Post about her booty pics: they are inspiring. I quote: “If [my Instagram account] motivates people to get their butts up and go to the gym, why not?” Jen Selter’s mom echoed the same sentiment.  “I’m very proud of her because this is a girl who didn’t want to go to college, and she was able to build up this social media in such a way that she has become famous and she is an inspiration and motivation for so many people,” her mom said.

There are a few other fitness buffs who’ve called themselves inspirational to other women. A few months ago, Lea-Ann Ellison drew the Internet’s ire for posing for photos doing Crossfit training while eight months pregnant, specifically lifting heavy weights. In a post on Facebook, she wrote:

I can’t believe this photo has caused this much stir but it makes me hopeful that it will inspire other strong healthy moms to continue on doing what they love. Pregnancy is not an illness! Get it Moms!

Then, of course, there is Maria Kang, a mother of three young children who posted a picture of herself in a bikini alongside her kids with the tag line, ‘What’s your excuse?’ “I wanted to inspire people,” Maria told Yahoo Shine. “I wanted to say, ‘I know you think you don’t have time if you have kids. But if I can do it, you can do it, too.’” Keep reading »

6 Ways To Burn More Calories When You’re Having Sex

Last week, we learned the sad news that we may not be burning as many calories as we thought we were during an average sex session. And hey, burning about as many calories as a game of doubles tennis is nothing to sneeze at. But if you really want to turn your sexcapades into a bona fide (boner fide?) workout, you’re gonna have to make like Britney Jean and work, bitch. Getting the maximum burn from your sexercise session takes dedication, excellent hand-eye coordination, and a little creativity, but it can be done. Here are some moves we dreamed up for people who want to hit the bedroom instead the gym, who want to pump their hips instead of pumping iron, who want to ditch the exercise balls for actual balls, who — well, you get the idea. [Photo from Shutterstock]

Is Sex Exercise? Sorry, It’s Only “Moderate Exercise” & Only Sometimes

Breaking News: Christina Aguilera Prefers Her Child Over Exercise

Shocking! Christina Aguilera cares more about her five-year-old son, Max, than exercise. It seems that we’re supposed to be surprised enough for that statement to be worthy of a headline. Apparently, she’s expected to be a veggie-eating robot who delegates the “child” nonsense to nannies in favor of spending extra hours alone on the treadmill. Keep reading »
