Poised versus Posed

Physique is a game of smoke and mirrors.

We have many different looks and bodies that we can present - it's a choice and the different is in the posing.

You too can make your body look leaner, taller, thinner and overall more confident by how you hold yourself.

I challenge you to practice 3 looks:

1) PISSED - Regular you - Ì will call `pissed` as most people will have poor posture and a furrowed brow from too much stress and negativity

2) POISED - stand taller and tighter, looking more positive

3) POSED - call upon your inner physique athlete and strike a few poses. Flex muscles and give a big smile. Exhale all your air and make your tummy as flat as possible (yes, exhale - not inhale)

And the next time you see a figure model in a magazine or physique competitor on stage, remember the smoke and mirrors. You too can make your physique looks it's best just by the way you hold your body and the pose you chose to take.

Proper nutrition and exercise is absolutely a must but beyond that your posture and posing can separate the good from the great from the elite.

Sun To Earth Photography

Many of you are asking.... so here's the answer.

To what question you may ask?

Who is Sun To Earth Photography as many times you see it at the bottom of my pictures?

My next photo shoot is just over a week away! I am ready and very excited as Scott is combining two of his creative skills in one - airbrushing and photography.

Will let you know (well I will show you) how it goes!

What LEANER (not lighter) Looks Like

January 11th
143 lbs
16% body fat

February 26th
142 lbs
13% body fat

This is why PICTURES and the MIRROR are the best assessments. No one sees a number. YOU ARE NOT A NUMBER!

Repeat that "I am not a number!"

Leafy greens are ranked HIGH on my Favorite Veggies list.

Specifically kale and red swiss chard.

In butter or olive oil (I prefer butter for greens), sautee chopped red or white onion, kale, swiss chard until wilted / crispy (medium high - high heat), add sea salt, lemon juice & black pepper. Serve with your lean protein of choice.

When you chop it, it may appear like alot but greens reduce significantly (to 1/4 of the fresh serving) when cooked. I prepare about 6 cups chopped with gives me 3 servings. I eat them throughout the day with my meals.
