View Full Version : Flexing poses for physique

I was at the INBA Mr. Los Angeles/Mr. Hollywood Natural bodybuilding contest last weekend. For the physique round, when the men came out for their individual "walks", the judge called out some standard bodybuilding poses: front and rear double bis, front and rear lat spreads, and also an intercostal shot. They skipped Most Muscular and of course any leg-specific poses.

I'm not sure what the exact criteria is for judging Men's Physique (is anyone?) but from a spectator standpoint it did make things a little more interesting. As least these guys did something other than walk across a stage. I'm not sure they should hit the same poses as the big boys, but I think the division would be helped a lot if they did some sort of posing beyond the model shots.

Anyone else been to physique comps with flexing? Think it would help?

I did an NPC show, there was so many competitors they didnt even let us do our side poses.

That's one of the problems I have with Men's Physique and Women's Bikini. The contests are way too crowded. It's boring for the audience and unfair to the competitors when they don't get to actually display their hard work properly because of time.
