As a gymrat addicted, posing to me is as much part of the sport as training, dietand sleep. But what about the regular gym rat, who most likely will never step on stage? I am convinced that posing can help anyone anyone during their quest for a better physique.
So what are the benefits of posing if you do not plan to step on stage in a tiny piece of underwear? I believe there are several ways in which posing will help you to achieve your dream body. Here are my thoughts: I am in the pursuit of that! so stick to this!
1. Posing can dramatically improve muscle awareness, especially in hard to develop areas such as hamstrings or parts of your back. Very often athletes have lagging muscle groups, simply because they do not contract them properly during the workout. Posing betters the mind muscle connection which then leads to better workouts overall.
2. Posing helps with definition, meaning it will get you leaner. You will find that 20 minutes of hitting the mandatory poses make for an interesting cardio, but its more fun than the treadmill. I especially feel that posing is a great tool on high carb days, when you really want to fill your muscles back up. Posing forces the muscle to store more glycogen, when done several times during the day for a couple minutes.
3. Posing increases your muscle maturity. What does that mean? Will I get older faster? Not quite. Have ever noticed how seasoned bodybuilders almost always have a drier and more complete look on stage than their younger counterparts?
Finally, once you master posing you can impress your gym buddies by masterfully displaying the vacuum or a killer most muscular. I know is very vital for bodubuilding to pose I barely do it beacause I train in a public gym and you know there is a lot haters can give you the envy look but the point is to do it I try to do it at home as much as I can. Stay fit world!
