Just from what I can see from the pics, I would try to improve lat width and also traps if I'm being picky. Since you are competing in physique those things may not matter as much. You never know what the judges are looking for that day so just come in peeled and put on a good smile

Prefacing this with that I think you're in a good place for physique. I would second @SwoleAnimal on the lats, but for physique, I would say dialing in those abs and working on the extensor side of your forearms. And I know physique doesn't really take the legs too seriously since they keep them covered, but your calves may need some work--the photo angle makes it hard to look at them. The quads seem ok; however, in a close-up, anything looks bigger than it may be in person.

As an aside, photos that are straight-forward, in focus, with good lighting will make all of these comments a lot more helpful to you, as the comments will be better. I believe mostof these pictures are where you like the look or feel you look big/cut, which aren't necessarily the best for feedback.

@monstermash... Thanks for the advice, I will definitely be working on my lat width and forearms. You're right about the pictures. I will post current ones tonight after work. I'm doing this without a coach so I'm pretty lost when it comes to posing. Links to vids would be much appreciated.

With your frame I'd say mens physique would be better suited for you. If you prefer to have a more aesthetic body and live a more fit life style it also would be prefered for you to do mens physique

@jordan... Sounds like mp will be a good fit for me. Any tips for learning how to pose? I have ZERO experience

@Steverogers I learned how to pose from my friend who competes so he kind of led the way on to what I know today. Also YouTube and watching others really helps if you are a visual learner. It's a lot harder than most think to perform and hold those poses, gets tiring as hell but I like to practice posing at least 4-5 times a week after my lifts for 5-10 minutes and sometimes longer just holding poses to get use to it.

Good advice, thanks @jordan. Is NPC a drug tested organization? Cause I don't want to be up against some Steve Cook lookin dudes and I'll be weighing like 165 lol

@Steverogers You could start with smaller shows. Seems like the guys stay pretty small, but come shredded as fuark

@life8lood I'm pretty new here. Should I start a log or just stay in here?

@swoleanimal, yeah that's probably the look I'll end up with. I'm really not sure what to expect out of this show. It seems to be a smaller local show but I'm brand new to competing so i'll have to just show up in my best form and do my best.

@Steverogers that was my first post so pretty new myself lol. But I've been on other forums and I think you'll get more followers if you make a designated log with a title explaining what it is.

Thanks everyone. This forum is my new official go-to forum from here on out. I was a member on bb.com but it's so full of trolls I can't even get a serious response out of someone. Plus, you guys actually lift lol.

@Steverogers NPC is drug free although people do illegal shit pre contest and let it get out of there system before testing is done. I'm not saying everyone does but there are always those few that do. Steve Cooks physique in amazing but again start with smaller shows and work your way up. It’s all about the small waist, broad shoulders, abs, smile and your stage presence

This is possibly the most laughable thing I've ever read on these forums and that's saying a lot. -3X

Ok @eknight... You seem to know what's up. Being realistic, do I stand a chance? I honestly don't want to waste my time if I'm just going to be up against a bunch of shredded fake natties.
