to wonder how these people who do the 30 day squat challenges physically manage to take a picture of their arse

I though that my arse was looking a bit saggy the other day so thought I would partake in the "30 day squat challenge" after seeing some pretty good before and after pictures.
I also decided that it would be a good idea to take some before and after pictures of my derrière so that I could share my results with all of you delicious mumsnetters!

Easier said than done, after about 25 attempts to get a good picture of my arse, square on, I gave up. I was trying to capture my "flobby bottom" (as flobby cock DP puts it) with my iPad. I'm quite aware that it is certainly not the most slimline of devices but I had no other picture taking apparatus on my person.

I'm just wondering if anyone had any fool proof ways to take a "belfie" without dislocating my ribs and growing hands out of my arse hole.

Thank you!

Pictured, best attempt out of 25!

grin you need a full length mirror and take a photo of yourself sideways on in the mirror. You could probably take an over the shoulder snap too of the mirror for full on arse pic grin

Does the camera not have a timer function?

Dothefridgesquat Wed 08-Jul-15 12:55:33

I've tried the full length mirror will maybe charge my camera up and have a go that way and if that fails then I might have to persuade my 1 year old to take a picture of mummy's bum

What is the 30 day squat challenge?

<misses point entirely>

Dothefridgesquat Wed 08-Jul-15 12:56:15

gummy hmmmm never even thought of that!! I think it should have

You do a certain number of squats over a 30 day period to try and tone your asset. You get a couple of rest days etc.

Your arse looks ok to me. Is this some kind of stealth boast?

Dothefridgesquat Wed 08-Jul-15 13:02:12

No and my arse is not ok. Meant to be a light hearted thread. . . Don't want it picking to pieces

CakeNinja Wed 08-Jul-15 13:04:21

aren't you supposed to get someone else to take the picture?

Maryz Wed 08-Jul-15 13:06:17

You'd have to show someone your arse to get them to take the picture though blush

I've just googled. I think I'd have to start at day minus 30 and work up to day one [sigh]

Maryz Wed 08-Jul-15 13:06:40

I mean, it might be ok to let them take the after photo; the before, not so much grin

U2TheEdge Wed 08-Jul-15 13:07:01

Who posts a pic of their arse on MN? hmm

U2TheEdge Wed 08-Jul-15 13:07:15

BTW, it is a very nice arse!

Strokethefurrywall Wed 08-Jul-15 13:07:17

Hahaha I started the 30 day squat challenge the other day - I declined a photo because I don't want my before butt captured forever on camera!! You're brave!

TheHouseOnBellSt Wed 08-Jul-15 13:11:03

Fabulous arse OP!

cardibach Wed 08-Jul-15 13:17:20

I was thinking stealth boast, too, Hell. I must move in the wrong citcles as I've rarely seen a less saggy arse. That photo is fine - you don't need another technique, the one you have works. I can't think why you have posted it really if it isn't a stealth boast...

Dothefridgesquat Wed 08-Jul-15 13:19:48

Do it furrywall I'm very visual, if I cant see progress then I won't do it!

Strokethefurrywall Wed 08-Jul-15 14:38:40

I'm waiting until it gets really peachy before taking the shot! Im so sad about my ass, it was amazing until I had kids then it deflated like a whoppee cushion sad

First time for saying this sentence

Your arse is very nice though to do
squat challenge you need to
show the bit that joins the thighs so that 30 days later you can see that your butt is uplifted

I have never complimented someone's arse before

ghostyslovesheep Wed 08-Jul-15 14:44:17

Oh dear god are you school run dress lady back for another Friday share of odd body pics???

Seriously you could ask the question without forcing us to look at your arse cheeks

Yabu for that alone

GummyBunting Wed 08-Jul-15 14:44:47

That is a good arse.
I did the 30 day squat challenge about a year ago. I really do reccomend it, by day 30 my butt was incredible, like someone had sculpted it.

But you do have to keep it up. Took a matter of weeks (and cakes) to go back to its normal saggy self.

LyingWitchInTheWardrobe Wed 08-Jul-15 15:11:23

You took 25 pictures of your arse to see if you could take a picture of your arse? Can't you examine the photos yourself to see if everything you wanted captured, was? Could your husband not have taken the photo for you?

Sorry for all the questions on your 'lighthearted' thread; I do think you meant to post for comments, 25 photos is a big time investment.
