Great video and great showing , I couldn't tell how in shape you were until you got in the light at the front. Either way your avi shows it plenty. Proud of ya buddy, and looking forward to when you do your next one.
You looked great Mike, I'm glad I followed ya through the entire journey. Hopefully now you can tell what works for you and what doesn't. Your routine was solid! The crowd loved you and that's what makes the experience golden.
As far as your choreography in your routine, not that it matters but you should transfer more fluently. Example: from a rear dbi to a back dbi, go one are arm up at a time. I was taught this and it's great.
Great job bro, once again.
^^Thanks a lot guys!
The biggest thing that helped me out was that I just had fun with it. Too many guys go out and try to be too serious and all hardcore but if you dont have fun posing, it will show and the routine will be boring!
I saw one of the judges at my work today and he approached me to tell me that if I would have opened up more on my quarter turns in the morning I would have got second no doubt. He said that they didnt see my great symmetry until the night when it was too late. Nice to know but nothing to beat myself up over now!
Here are a couple more pics I found that I took between shows during the day!
