today I had my first posing session with bodybuilding veteran, Stasi Longo. she is an amazing coach and person, I’m so happy I decided to receive coaching from her. I would highly suggest a posing class or clinic before a first show. she took my body fat (23%), weight (138), adjusted my suit, gave me suggestions on what I need to improve. mostly keep my diet on point, do more cardio and more legs, because my upper body and lower body aren’t proportioned. also, as a judge, her trained eye was able to help me pose in the best position for me and tell me exactly what the judges look for. she corrected my poses, which I had learned from watching YouTube videos.
she said there really are no rules when it comes to posing and I would have gotten away with what I had learned, but the suggestions she gave me made a huge difference!
she also helped me with my walk, prejudging posing and went through the T walk also for the second round of judging. I had so much confidence by the end of our session. she told me I should try a show April 9 (3 weeks away) for some experience before her show at the end of April. I’m highly considering it! his is the motivation I needed to get me through the next 6 weeks. I can do this!!!
