#TruthTuesday | I have clients in about 10 pro and amateur shows (in half a dozen federations and almost every single category) still this fall, but over half my clients right now are prepping for spring shows. I ALWAYS emphatically encourage my competitors to practice posing year-round, and have their “check in” session AT LEAST 16 weeks out - and for spring shows, BTW, that’s almost now. Early posing ensures a few things:
1️⃣ Rule changes and progress-fueled proportion changes have a significant impact on posing expectations in what is allowed and what is the most flattering, sometimes resulting in a chance of category or federation. The sooner the direction is chosen based on these factors, the better for all other areas of planning.
2️⃣ Practice doesn’t make perfect: PROPER practice makes perfect. Just like training with good form, the key to smooth, effective and effortless posing comes from honing muscle memory linked to correct movements with maximum engagement. This is what separates those that “act” from those that “are” on stage.
3️⃣ It’s important to get used to posing full-out, with confidence, when you don’t feel “stage ready.” More often than not, you don’t feel completely “dialed in” when you are on stage, even if you have peaked perfectly. It’s critical to be able to present with grace and projection under conditions that don’t feel ideal.
It is for all these reasons that my posing sessions purchased in my packages don’t expire; I’m a firm believer that posing is the long-game, should always be evolving with the changes in parameters and physiques, and should always be present in your routine no matter what stage of competition prep you are in. Whether your a competitor or a trainer with clients competing, don’t wait to put presentation training into your plan. ❤️ // XOXO, Lady Tron // #posingcoach#onlinecoach#preplife // Photo courtesy of @tomorrowsmedia capturing the stunning @wendyjeanwhite, who went on to win Novice Overall at her first show this season. 💋

Don't listen to what they say. What do you think, would I be an 11x Fitness Cover Model if I always listened to others opinions?! Yes, sometimes I was trouble kid or they thought I was, because my plan was not to make my reality based on what others thought about me or told me to do. I always wanted to be independent. Independency will cost you some relationships 👉true story. But for a good reason, to create the space you need for your own story and reality! Never get dependent of anybody and anything if you're following a vision!!!
