[QUOTE=juliel;11255499]Kendra is amazing! Thank you for the info on posing! I also wanted to let women prepping for Fitness or Figure to know that I have released a Posing DVD. This DVD takes you step-by-step through mandatory poses, relaxed poses and presentation. It also gives you live show footage so that you know what to expect at the show itself. If you have any questions or would like more information
Where are you located in kentucky? I am going to do my first figure competition in August and would love some input. The only people that I know that compete are men so their posing is a bit different. If you are close maybe I could get a little bit of help.
Finally a guide for posing! This is very helpful. Well, I don't compete actually but I have a couple of friends who are interested to. I will share this with them, and I'm pretty sure that this will help, especially Sarah because she's up for her first competition in 4 weeks!
I have been working with a personal trainer for 2 years and would like to compete in a figure competition. My concern is that since I only have one rectus abdominis muscle (breast cancer surgery) that my abs will look terrible. I will have a 3 pack instead of a 6 pack. Is there anyone on this board who has had this experince and done a competiton? How? Thanks

1)Front Pose:-The front pose begins by setting your feet so that they are together and facing the front of the stage.
Your knees and legs should be together, and you should flex your thighs to the outside as if you were trying to rotate your knees outward while still keeping your legs together. This will bring out the separation in your thighs.
Your butt should be "up", your back should be in the "C" curve, your chest should be out, and you should be doing a vacuum with your abs so they are in and tight.
Imagine you are holding a beach ball with your arms.
Your arms should be slightly bent, and held slightly in front of your body.
Your arms should not be too far out to the outside of your body, and they should not be too far out in front of your body.
Keep your head up high, and keep a big smile on your face.
2)Side Pose :- Begin the side pose by facing the side of the stage with your feet together.
Bending your legs slightly will allow you flex your hamstrings.
Your butt should be "up" in this pose and you should have the "C" curve in your back with your chest out, your stomach in, and your head up high.
Contrary to what you see in some pictures, you should not turn your head to face the audience. Your head should face the side of the stage and you should have a big smile on your face.
Your arms should be slightly bent and tight. Your hands should be aligned so that they are lined up with the middle of your thighs from the side. Your arms should not be pulled excessively to the back, or be out in front of your body.
3)Rear Pose:- The rear pose begins by facing the back of the stage with your feet together.
Your butt should be absolutely as high as you can get it, and you should have an extreme "C" curve in your back.
Lifting your butt up like this really gives the best look to your glutes and hamstrings from the rear.
Spread your lats as wide as you can spread them and move your arms and hands slightly in front of your body.
Imagine you are holding a beachball again so that your arms are slightly bent and spaced in a similar fashion to the front pose.
Keep your head up high and take advantage of the fact that you are facing the rear to get in a few good deep breaths.
4)Victory Pose:-Hold your hands up high and celebrate your victory!
Good luck with your posing!
