I think I'm going to take you up on that. I can use any help I can get to try and bring the posing up.

I'll definitely start working my neck.

Good man......neck training makes a difference fast .....be careful not to be too gung ho too fast ease into .....don't get hurt or strain yourself like you did with your low back.........go easy and slowly push it up a bit.......you 'll be glad you took my advice ....as far as calling me.....feel free ......you are improving ......obviously a hard worker and fast learner ........I can't wait to see how you do ......I like your look and balance better than the guy that just won the over 50 nationals this yr........you kinda have that Mentzer classic power look........as long as you are watching your health......I think your best is ahead for many yrs to come ......no bs

OJS- On your side chest poses.

In the pictures you posted of your side chest shot- you showed to different versions. I definitely like the first side chest shot. I didn't think you looked as good in the one where your legs were one ahead of the other.

That's just my opinion of course. I don't know if you were trying to make your hamstrings show up better or something- but the first picture kills the second and not just because of the lighting.

I look at your physique and think Sergeant Rock! I'd stick with poses done in such a way as to promote that manly look. Nothing too artsy-fartsy.

Your physique is great, man. Be excited! Hell, I would be. You are very good otherwise no one would bother trying to give you little tips.

Like most guys at 50, we tend to hold that fat in our glutes and lower back. If you can tighten those up in the next 3 weeks, you will do very well. Aside from that at 57, I dream to look like the way you do.

OJS, wow looking great man! You have a lot to be proud of. Hit it hard and consistent these next coupe weeks and that last little bit of softness on your low-back and glutes witll be gone.
You have great structure, balance, skin, the full boat.

Absolutely!

You look fantastic from the front and on your side poses, ojs. Just tighten them up glutes and hams, and you'll look even better than you already do!! :)

OJS,

Aside from how fantastic, simply stunning you look,
some things struck me when I viewed your fotos.

Yes, it's poor lightening like Tenny said. But think about
how great you are going to look when you get to where you
want to be, and you will, when you get on stage with the
proper stage lightening. You are going to stand out like a
diamond in a goats ass. (A good thing.)

Another is your neck like Iabadman said. That is resolvable
long term like was said. Good advice for everybody and often
overlooked.

You know what you need to do between now and Showtime.
I am confident you will do nothing but improve. You have
the right people in your corner, you are not afraid of hard work
and discipline that is evident by how far you have come.

Posing, you own many of them, they are world class. Nail
them along with the conditioning (which you are well on your
way to doing) and you are going to walk away a very happy man.
And smile when you are on stage, that means allot. Hell . . . I'd
be smiling, happy with half of what you are bringing to the party.

If you have not already thought of this, I think you should get a
professional photographer to photograph you when you are in
such great shape. It's something I don't think you will regret doing.

You have so much going for you, good looks, sensational body
and conditioning. I think you are going to have fun up there.

I wish you all the best. I think we all thank you for making the
commitment to do what you are doing and sharing your journey
with us. It inspires.

Question . . . have you given up the glass of dry red wine at dinner?
You, Alfresco, are quite the gentleman. Thanks for all the encouraging words.

...and no. It could be argued that I'd look even better had I given it up. But I won't give up the dry red every day until the day I die.

I would say stop holding one leg forward in all your front poses except a ab shot. Glutes and hams need to tightyen up alot. Otherwise your doing great.

As an older trainer attempting to make a positive change, you are an inspiration. I've always been told that it takes at least 3 years of serious training to notice a big difference, and that most serious BBs are ready to compete after 4-5 years. You give me inspiration that this may be obtainable for me. Wow. Thanks.
