    Posing Routines - Gerry Triano

    Posing Practice Drill (Based on Men’s Competition)

    Recommendations:

    Start five to seven weeks out from competition at least three or four times a week, so muscles are acclimated to the repeated contractions during competition. It is best to practice with a partner, or to videotape practices or routines, so you can see what you are doing and make adjustments. As you see yourself become a better poser and see your definition improve, it will motivate you to keep at it.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Symmetry/balance judging (first round):
    Quarter Turns: Make each turn when instructed by head judge. Start by facing the judges' stand. First quarter turn is to your right, so your left side faces judges' stand. Before turning, tense left arm to show tricep so judges see it when you turn. Both feet flat, arms at sides, tensed not flexed. Second quarter turn to your right, so your back now faces the judges' stand. Before turning, flare out lats and widen back. Shows back, lats and calves, but tensed not flexed. Both feet flat. Third quarter turn to your right, so your right side faces judges' stand. Then last quarter turn to your right, coming back to your starting position. Tense abs and quads, but not a flexing round. Feet flat.

    Compulsory Poses

    Front Double Bicep: Arms out at 90-degree angle; bring up
    fists and turn wrist inward for maximum peak. Abs and quads
    should be tensed. Judges look for overall symmetry in all
    these poses, and how biceps look in relation to rest of the
    physique.

    Compulsory Poses

    Front Lat Spread: Should see space between lat and
    forearm. Stand upright, too much back or forward
    detracts from V shape and symmetrical look. Again
    tense abs and flex quads. Flare out pecs and delts as
    much as possible. This is an everything pose; judges
    scrutinize whole physique.

    Compulsory Poses

    Back Double Bicep: One of the make or break poses. Some
    competitors look ripped from the front, but are smooth when they turn
    around. As in front double, arms out at 90 degrees, flex bicep with wrist
    turned inward. Sit on back muscles, flex hamstrings and calf in one leg.
    If in top shape, lower back will have outline of “Christmas tree,” glutes
    will be hard and hamstrings will be striated.

    Back Lat Spread: As in front lat, space between lat and forearm
    for maximum V effect. Flex calf and hamstrings of one leg. An

    Ab and Thigh: Both hands must be behind head. Flex abs and quad as
    tightly as possible. The lower the bodyfat, the sharper this pose will look.
    This pose will point out the cardio slackers.

    Individual posing round (third round, after judges make the cut):

    This last 60 seconds. You need someone to time the routine so you know what to do. Should begin and end with most effective pose. Best to incorporate all the compulsory poses; otherwise judges might think you’re trying to hide a weakness. Giving them such an impression can cost a couple of places. Big part of the game is having faith and pride in yourself. Bodybuilding begins in the mind, which should be your strongest muscle. Be aggressive and confident, but not obnoxious, and show what you have to the fullest.

    Remember, you can have the best development in the contest, but not being able to show it effectively will hurt you. Once you can do the poses by rote and hold them for at least fifteen seconds, you will know you arrived. Good luck and have fun.

    Additional contest tips:

    I always recommend dark trunks, since they create an illusion of a flatter midsection and sharper V taper. Lighter color or patterned trunks are a distraction. You want the focus to be on the physique, not the trunks. Bring 4 pair with you. One pair each for prejudging and finals, and two extra pair for unexpected emergencies (tear, oil or Pro Tan spill, etc.).

    It is important to practice posing without a mirror for the last few weeks of the show. I cannot stress quarters and mandatories enough. Even if you feel you have them nailed, practice them anyway. It helps to have someone watching you. There are no mirrors on stage, so you have to feel the correct positions. Many times when a show is close, back poses are the tiebreaker. It would be helpful if someone could tape the practice so you can see it later. Helps to see what you look like and what needs to be adjusted. Practice side chest and tricep shots from both sides. Practice is hard work but very aerobic, bringing out cuts and separation.

    For some reason, front lat is the hardest shot to nail for the guys I've worked with. The following works if you have someone to assist you. Have them place a yardstick across center of the mid ab region. Hit pose bringing the pecs up by inhaling. If done right, elbows should hit ends of yardstick. To maximize V taper, elbows should be on the same plane as the abs at 180. If elbows are too far forward or back, you look too narrow across the lats. Keep practicing with yardstick until you have feel of the position, then practice without it in front of a mirror. Then graduate to practicing away from mirror. Control of breathing is very important in the poses. It is necessary to inhale for side chest and front lat to raise pecs. Exhale in short breaths while holding the pose. This takes practice as well.

    As to music, pick something that inspires you and that will project to the audience. For beginners, it is usually better to select something familiar and up tempo. That will be easier to pose to. Classical or opera can expose flaws and awkwardness. It takes really fluid movement to pose well to a slow piece of music. It is irrelevant if music starts as you come onstage or when you reach center stage. I have seen instances where a competitor is onstage and music doesn't start (tape jams or breaks). So it may be better to have music start while walking out to center stage. If possible, bring music on CD to avoid tape jamming problems. Otherwise, bring at least 3 cassettes of the routine music.

    For anyone, beginners especially, I believe that "less is more” and “simple is better." For a first show, I recommend using same routine for 60-second prejudging and finals. No rule against it and only one sequence to remember. For final, you can add an extra crab or any strong pose at the end. If you do forget the routine, don't let the audience know it. Just do all the mandatories, a couple crabs, bow and walk off. It happened to one competitor I coached. He was fine in practice, but froze onstage. He just did the mandatories and still got 3rd. Have nothing against dancing all over the stage IF you can move well and have the physique to back it up. But judges at below-national amateur level can perceive it as a distraction or think you are hiding weaknesses. If you use dance movements, make sure they work.

    Posing effectively is much easier said than done, and much harder than it looks onstage. Practice is the key to successful competition. Luck and success to everyone.

    This **** is run by fake Christians, fake politicians

    All they talk about is terrorism on television
    They tell you to listen, but they don't really tell you they mission
    They funded Al-Qaeda, and now they blame the Muslim religion
    Even though Bin Laden, was a CIA tactician
    They gave him billions of dollars, and they funded his purpose

    Thumbs up Excellent!

    Excellent thread Big Daddy Joe!

    I never knew about the "yardstick test" for doing a proper lat spread, but by golly that sure does work! Great job!

    - Skip "My lat spread brings all the girls to the show, and they're like... 'It's better than yours!'. Dang right, it's better than yours! I could teach you, but I'd have to charge."
    "I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well." - Psalm 139:14

    great post big daddy joe. very informative and helpful for those who are beginners, or to who posing doesnt come naturally. one thing i would like to add, is that when i am working with competitors for a show, little differrences in leg and feet placement can make a huge difference in working for thier specific physique. one year, i was looking after 3 guys who all had slight differrences which worked for each specifically. so, a good idea, once the general poses are down pat, is to try little things like turning the feet in or out more, standing up straighter or sitting back more, having feet closer together or further apart... just trying little things, and getting people to give feedback on what seems to look best. peace..

    Sorry not to be around much, but I'm the author of the articles posted by Big Daddy.

    Anyone have specific questions, please feel free to e mail. I do consults by e mail or video and live consults in the NYC/LI area. No charge, but based on my time availability. Anyone competing, hope this helps and good luck for this season.

    I've got a half sleeve tattoo. Would it be detrimental to competing?

    Should not be. Many competitors seem to have tattoos these days. As long as it does not detract from the physique. Many times the pro tan will obscure the tattoo so it is not distracting.

    Does your routine have to be choreographed or just posing to the music in the background
    GO BIG OR GO HOME

    Can go either way. The music can be a back drop for your routine. Or if you move really well, you can choose music with a definite beat that highlights your poses and transitions.

    The main thing is to choose a piece of music that you like and will inspire you to present yourself to your best advantage. if you are enthusiastic, it will get an audience reaction.

    In any event, you have to practice and practice some more no matter which direction you go.

    As i said in the post above yours, what kind of music do you like and will inspire you? You could use that as background. And a good routine does not have to have dance moves. just go with what you are comfortable doing.

    Really good job explaining each pose. Why don't you produce a video with this info in it? You have the script written for it.
