Research online and see which poses appeal to you or suit your body.
Practice your poses in front of a mirror, or with someone you trust – especially if they’ve done a shoot before.
Don’t be too obvious. Get a range of shots that will show off your physique, but leave a bit of time for a few more creative poses too.
Secret 5: Pump – but not too much
You’re going to want your muscles to look the absolute best, and that means getting a good pump.
Work out a short routine you can do in the studio using your own body weight, and take a couple of small dumbbells along so you can work all your muscle groups.
Do high reps with short rests using a lower weight so you don’t get too tired, or too sweaty.
Remember – you’ve worked hard to get the great body you have, and you worked hard to pay for your shoot. Putting a little extra work into being ready will mean you feel proud of your performance on the day. Take a look atto get inspired to do your best, and to get the best out of your photographer.
Now relax and enjoy your shoot. You’ve earned it!
