So as I keep saying on this site, I'm very new to T-Nation and I'm still finding my way around. This is the first thread I'll be posting and my question is this. I'm sure that somewhere in the Archives of the T-Community there have been articles or other forums on the Compulsory Poses involved in bodybuilding? I'd like any and all imput on this and other relevent first show topics. I have a long way to go, and if you check out my profile there's more info about me on there. But, I'm starting now to try and compete in my first show sometime late Spring, through mid Summer of 2012.
I'm deployed at this time, but I return to the states in a couple months, and my military contract ends in Oct. I've been trying to build my contest physique over the last year, and will continue through the next 9 mos. I figure it's better to plan ahead now, so while I have the time and this resource I'd love to hear any and all comments/recommendations about the best ways to master poses, and make the most of showing your physique. As with all things I'm sure that practice makes perfect, and it's been my experience through powerlifting that the best advice comes first hand from those who've been there.
I'll also try to keep track of my progress on here as the months go by, and hope to keep up as much as possible on posts. I hope throughout the months I may even be able help some of you who post in this forum as much as I know you'll be able to help me. Thank you for taking the time to read this, and help out.
Before I post this. I'm well aware and realize I have a long way to go, but if you don't have dreams and goals in any faction of the lifting community then why bother to bust your ass. I feel I've made a lot of progress over the last year, and plan to continue to work as hard as possible towards my goals of being in show quality shape. Having said that I'm a big fan of constructive criticism so feel free to post any of the latter, and speak your mind as I continue to post pics and measurements as the months go by. To see some of the pics I've already posted please see my IBB log, or my profile.
