I would have to agree about arnold but not the best he did however put a lot of work into transitioning and that is provided in his video.

In my eyes posing should be a work of art it should flow with strong transitions it should be powerful and fluent believe posing should be a work of art not just hitting shots of course you need to present each shot well but posing is meant for entertainment

How many times have you posed on stage.

true, i agree. "work of art" and "entertaining" are two good words there. what do you think of guys like melvin and darrem, who include popping and locking moves for alot of their routine? i find this quite entertaining and a break from the norm.

i've actually never competed, but the thought of posing infront of even a hundred people to a really "work of art" routine that makes people really feel the message, is pretty neat. i'm always downloading certain tracks that i think would make good posing music for when i eventually do compete, and going over in my head the certain points of the song to hit certain poses, etc. there is alot of music out there which would make for a really inspirational routine.

Sure is until you pose yourself and you know Judging criteria do not critique others standards yours are your own standards not NPC nor IFBB so keep them that way your own

i know you said this two years ago but damn what a stupid comment

E
nah levrone wasnt a great poser. awesome physique...one that i underrated at the time of that post, but hisposing isnt that great.

good posing...not posing routines, but POSING, check out dexter jackson.   when it comes to hitting the mandatories in a way that shows the body to its fullest, no one beats dexter jackson. no one. not in the history of bb'ing.

as far as ROUNTINES go, kai greene won me over at the arnold this year, so i'd either give it to him or melvin anthony.    probably kai though, because melvin does the same shit at every show.

thats like saying a football fan cant critique a quarterback unless hes played quarterback in the nfl..    its true that the fan doesnt know what its liek to be in the nfl, but the fan can still compare the nfl quarterback to other nfl quarterbacks acurately.


but  i totally agree with you on your definition of "good posing" and your assessment of kai green.


im going to do my first routine to a tribe called quest.

i know the judging criteria, but even if i didn't, i can still comment on whoever i like. 90% of ppl on this board dont think jay cutler should have won the olympia in 07. they can comment on it because what ifbb says isn't always what should be done according to their very own rulebook. in just posing round alone, they overlook at least 3 rules.

here are the ifbb's standards as of 2006-7:

1. Each judge assesses the posing routine with a view towards
the display of muscularity, definition, style, personality,
athletic coordination and overall performance. Judges look
for a smooth, artistic, and well-choreographed routine,
which may include any number of poses; however, the
Mandatory Poses must be included. The competitor must
also include intermittent poses so as to display the muscular
development of his physique. Lying flat on the posing
platform, “moon” poses, and pulling the posing attire so as
to display the top inside of the quadriceps or the gluteus
maximus is prohibited.

2. The use of props is prohibited. The judges are reminded
that, during this round, they are judging the routine and the
physique.

I definetly know the standards as I have judged watched and competed many of times.  Here is the thing my friend judging is just that to judge the person based on a set standard of assesments however it is never done this way thats why cutler has a 40 inch waist and can still hold the biggest title in the industry,  THe other thing is everyone has oppinions much like here on this board it is your oppinion vs. another and your own criteria comes into play 100 percent of the time

Believe it or not, in that 1999 thread about Shawn Ray on the G&O board has him doing a very good posing routine.
