Ahhh posing, a real passion of mine!
Although the posing round doesn't count anymore, why is the posing so bad?
We have had threads about best posing & posing routines etc., maybe it is time for a bad posing thread with some discussion.
I will start with the obvious one: Paul Dillet
Couldn't do back poses, was out of breath, suffered from the dreaded shaking and his eyes were closed most of the time.
Maybe the out of breath could be attributed to his asthma, I think it was just lack of posing practice as is the shaking. Basic rookie and lazy mistake.
As I will show in later posts, don't think just because they are pro bodybuilders they know everything. People often state that a pro does a pose a certain way that they have tried all the other options and have gotten help. I don't think that is true at all. They sometimes just hit a few poses in the gym and have some guy standing there telling them how good they look in the pose. Too scared to tell the truth or maybe just being overwhelmed by the pro.
Don't get me wrong. I have a lot of respect for the pros, but maybe in this thread we can give our opinion (and don't we all here like to do that?) about their posing.

It wasn't just that his back was weak, here his back looks better by just pulling his elbows down a bit:
A nice pose by Dillet, but don't you guys think he could have gotten more out of the normal most muscular pose?
Offseason, but he should have done more of these, awesome:
