TEAM TITAN CONGRATS:
RUSSELL "MANIA" POWELL - On July 16th in Pittsburgh, The Mania Man placed an INCREDIBLE 3rd Place IN THE COUNTRY at the 2015 NPC MASTER'S NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS in the very competitive MEN'S PHYSIQUE 35 & Over, Class C division! PLEASE NOTE - The top 2 in his class receives their IFBB Pro cards making Russell NOW the best amateur Master's National competitor! Powell will be taking that same winning package to Pittsburgh once again where he will again be competing for his IFBB Pro card on Sept. 3rd at the IFBB NORTH AMERICAN CHAMPIONSHIPS where Russell Mania will be competing against athletes from the United States, Canada, & Mexico! Top 2 in each class earn IFBB Pro cards and I have a strong feeling one those diploma's to the Pro's is going home with Russell "Mania" Powell on Labor Day weekend! Wishing him a HUGE TITAN "GOOD LUCK" to this talented athlete that NEVER quits!
TITAN POSING CLINIC - A MUST FOR ALL COMPETITORS & COACHES!!
As I attend almost all NPC competitions in a 300 mile radius of Cleveland, Ohio,
I've taken note on a MAJOR issue that seams to plague 75% of the competitors...BAD posing & presentation!
One thing I feel is necessary to mention is the posing and presentations, or lack of, I've
been witnessing throughout this contest season. Of course, I've always seen very "novice
style" posing (OK...that's a nice way of phrasing it), but geeezzzz, this season I've seen
exceptionally poor (oops, I mean "novice";-) posing in ALL divisions!
1) Bikini competitors showing a rear stance should NOT bend too far back - it makes their
butts look BIGGER than it is!
2) Bodybuilders - When doing a double biceps pose keep your hands a little closer to your ears.
Too spread apart and your biceps will look flat!...Even if you in fact have a good peak on
your guns, they'll be no way of seeing it with your arms spread so apart!
3) ALL COMPETITORS - Please for the love of God, ANGLE IN when standing on the diagonal line when you're being judged!
4) ALL COMPETITORS - Make sure the judges can SEE YOUR COMPETITOR NUMBER
on your left side. If you twist your physique too much and your number is too far by your hip,
the judges can't see it!! PLEASE NOTE - At a national/pro qualifying contest there is NO
time for judges to correct this VITAL flaw and the athlete is overlooked! That's the way the
ball bounces in the big leagues folks.
These are just a few examples of some of the atrocities seen on otherwise very well
developed physiques. It's a damn shame as there is no doubt in my mind these hard working,
in shape athletes could have placed MUCH higher had they had some PROPER instructions!
FORTUNATELY - HELP IS ON THE WAY! Do NOT let poor posing and mistakes cost you
dearly after on MONTHS (and YEARS) of sacrifice preparing for your contest(s)!
