I think I almost got it right for this pic, still feels and looks a little wierd to me though. Any advice/critiques are appreciated!

It looks pretty good man. When you cut it's going to look great!

Going through pictures to help give you an idea of what to look for.


Thumbs locked into the side/rear waist, chest up and out, and elbows out to the side coming forward as if you were "hugging a tree". This inward flex will spread your lats and keeping your chest up and out will help maintain a full and spread back. The more mass you have, the better your v-taper will look obviously. Keep up the good work and continue to tweak your pose until you find one that suits you and in your opinion shows off as much mass as you have to offer.

pretty much what nosaj said... but the main thing i think u'll benefit from is putting ur hands/thumbs much lower (ie hips)... it makes my lat spread look half decent when i haven't got much to show off.

it helps a lot if you put your hands/thumbs on your love handle area. Here is one of mine that I posted in my journal. I thought it was a pretty good one.


edit: it also helps to cut your ratty ass mullet :D
