Default Posing

This is what you get from many hours of pose practice. It's easy to hit a perfect pose using a mirror for pic's but on stage with no mirror, in front of 1000+ people is another ball game. How many hours a day do you spend?

Posing is not generic or easy. They do have there criteria if your doing a pose that has a name to it. Examples: Rear Double Bi, Archer.

These poses you should be able to draw a straight line threw all the joints from elbow to elbow on Double Bi's or wrist (finger tips is 100% perfect) to elbow on the Archer. You don't worry about the alingment of the muscle bellies. Just line up the joints and let the size of the bellies show.

This is were so many fail and never realize it or are even told about it.

Nice info Rich, hadn't realised that before, concerning the line up of the joints

So, you practice posing without knowing how to pose?
That's really useful...
Posing properly is beyond difficult, with or without a mirror.

Awesome awesome awesome thread!

I'm 10wks out and I've been practicing about 20min a day. I'll increase posing practice as i get closer because not only does alignment matter but your muscles also need to be conditioned to be able to hold a contraction without shaking.

Video's will teach you a genaric pose. Posing properly is very personal like a diet. People sell vidio's and make them just for there exposure just like the fad diet plans.

A proven/award winning poser (best poser awards) makes the best coach.
Jeff Alberts ran me threw the grinder. Now I know what to look for in general and for me personally as my body develops more size.

Every fed has rules on what the basics outline of a pose is. Is the best starting point is learn the fed you will do and read there rules.

I seen a guy from NPC do a INBF show and take a hit for doing a pose diffrent than INBF rules. He did it by NPC rules.
