Bodybuilding Legends Talk About the Importance of Posing
Some athletes just have a natural talent to pose to whatever music is playing. James referenced that he believed Cormier was such an athlete, and he confirmed it by sharing a story from the 2004 Olympia when the DJ for the show played the wrong song.
“I had ‘Lean Back’ instead of ‘Confessions,’ and I had to in a split-second switch my thinking to another song,” he recalled. “So, when it came to that, I can do it.”
Sarcev has been working as a coach for many years, but he was a prominent competitor in the 1990’s, and he understood the importance of posing properly.
“It’s not what you have. It’s what you show,” he said. “When you have those few moments of glory, throw your best poses. You go there, you pick your 10 to 15 best poses, and then connect them so that it makes sense.”
Three Olympia superstars share their thoughts on a variety of topics.
