    How do you pose to look the best?

    If anyone is willing to post videos, of yourself or your fav BBer showing how to pose. Maybe some step by steps?. Iím having difficulty trying to look natural and smile while holding them. I donít know what all parts Iím supposed to be flexing in a given stance.
    any and all help is greatly appreciated.
    I know this is going to take a lot of work. I tried to hold poses last night after my workout, and I realized JUST how hard it is.. itís a workout in and of itself.

    Yep. He and I were just talking about this yesterday.
    I didn’t see it. This should be deleted so there’s no confusion.
    sorry about this.

    I'm kinda like you, I've tried poses and it definitely takes some endurance. As for required poses and such there are some vids out there, one from bodybuilding.com that actually is pretty instructive. Hopefully one of the competitors can chime in.

    This is a link to a video by John Meadows going over posing with an ifbb pro.

    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=nmFsMLcdkms

    This one is Chris Bumstead going through his poses with the head ifbb judge.

    It's interesting to see and hear the feed back on things the untrained she first pick up.

    Thanks for this... I suck at posing too. Don't plan on going on stage, but have friends and family who want to see my progress. Hard to drop that wow factor if I don't know how to properly make the details pop out when I flex.

    Damn, as the posing went on, Christ started to get a pump. I never noticed how dense his chest was till some of those closeups. Hell of a body on that guy.
