Figure Competition Posing Mistakes to Avoid

We’ve all seen these on stage. Some of you may have done one or all of them yourself without knowing it. Here are some figure competition posing mistakes to avoid if you want to walk away with a trophy.

1) Relax your hands as you pose. Don’t make a claw or paddle grip out of your fingers or palms. Keep them in a natural form. Don’t clench.

2) Do not lean forward. It takes away height and makes you look out of balance.

3) Don’t jut your hands out to your sides like wings. Relax your arms and let them look natural without trying to pretend to hug a beach ball.

I’d like to know what YOU think. What mistakes have YOU seen or done? Please share your comments below:
