After all the dieting and hard workouts, posing practice is super important. You can have the best body on stage, but if you walk around like you are going to pee yourself or like a frozen stick, you are not gonna hit the top. I try to do posing practice everyday. And yes it gets boring, so freaking boring i tend to dance around my living room just to make it more interesting. Im telling ya ive got some pretty funny(and embarrassing) videos of myself, that will never ever be shown to a living soul.
You gotta do it like youve been doing it your whole life. I gotta be spot on. Im trying different poses and styles everytime to find out what works best for me.
You gotta tense all that muscles constantly and its gotta be perfect! Not very easy no, but practice makes perfect. As they say..
