Pro competitions allow for lengthy posing routines, but in most amateur shows, you only have 60 to 90 seconds to "wow" the judges. Within this time frame, you have to hit all of the 'mandatory' poses. These mandatory poses can vary from federation to federation, but usually include;

  • Front Double Bicep
  • Rear Double Bicep
  • Front Lat Spread
  • Rear Lat Spread
  • Side Chest
  • Side Triceps
  • Abs and Thighs with the Arms Overhead

Regardless of the allotted time, you'll need to highlight all of your physique's strong points, and hide any weak points you may have . . . all without it being obvious that you're manipulating what the judges and audience see. Finally, you need to inject "YOU" into the routine using your chosen music selection, how you interpret each individual pose and the transitions between them.

With posing being such a big part of the equation, it could be the deciding factor in your next show. A Best Poser award would look great in your living room! And who knows, you may even get a guest posing gig out of it, or be featured on this web site!
