    Looks great.

    A suggestion.

    Arch your back more, stick out your chest.

    Draw your right shoudler back just a tad, that combined with the above will make your upper torso appear thicker. Give it a try and repost a pic, I would like to see a comparison.

    another thought... maybe you could also try the side chest pose with arms up and out a bit more? you have good arms/delts and you could use them to a bit better advantage in that pose, I think

    Smiling wouldn't hurt, either.

    Ya definitely look bigger, mate.

    Thanks chris. Posing is not a strength right now for sure. In fact I just starting trying to learn about it with a video I ordered.

    I will retake another picture tonight trying your suggestions and post it in this thread tomorrow.

    Are you serious.....you like that color? I ordered this last year when I thought I would compete, but chickened out. I was honestly going to order a black one. I'm conservative and too bashful to be very flambouyant.

    Thanks ericg and Callahan. I'll give it another whirl tonight to see if it looks any better. If not tonight, I'll do it Wednesday when I have an off day from lifting.

    You look off the hook man...considering you are like a ways away from even starting a pre-contest diet, and try chris' suggestion about the pose...it'll bring out the striations in your pecs and bring in a bit more trap
    May you be in heaven an hour before the devil knows you're dead.

    ya man, the color will go well with a tan, just like Savbabes said.

    good luck with the posing

    Thoughts...

    Ok here we go:

    1. Tilt your left shoulder forward or more towards the camera or crowd, and drop right shoulder back some.

    2. Flex your lats, hike up your chest and slam your left arm against your lats. Your arm will appear bigger and fuller.

    3. Your left arm is alittle low, slow raise up enough so that you can slam your left bicep against you left pec to give a fuller chest.

    4. Make sure that you apply pressure against you show forearm, and your forearm fight against the pressure to create more definition and vascularity in your arm.

    That is all I can give on the that pic. I would like to see what your legs look like on the shot as well. Those are very important.

    Another thing that suit is just fine, that is the color that I had for my show.

    Of course I'm serious. Everyone wears black and you should feel special. Not just anyone could pull off that colour. You look great in it. Although one thought I just had was you'll have to be really careful when putting on your tanning dye not to get it on the suit.

    I wish I could lexically represent the sound that came out of my mouth when I saw that picture. Picture the episode of the simpsons where marge is a real estate agent and flanders sees the purple cutains and shrieks. Now, mix in a generous helping fear and loathe.

    You look great, but I wouldn't post pictures of myself in panties on the internet...

    Well, s'prolly a moot point. Either instruction set would improve things. I think ol' BB just needs to spent some quality time in front of a mirror, practicing.

    Body awareness is a learned art, no?

    "Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21

    "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"
