See so many open with front double bicep. How about a variation. Recommended to one competitor a front lat spread into one arm raised in air, then 2nd arm (create victory pose) then one arm down into bicep and then 2nd arm down to complete double bi. If double bi is a strong pose for you, it heightens the effect when you hit it.Have to figure out what works best for you. Best to open and close with strongest pose(s), to bring in the audience and leave them wanting more. And always thought hand beckoning for applause was inappropriate. If you are that good, the reaction will will come. If you have to solicit a reaction, then it's not worth having.Practice and more practice. Not good to look like you're winging it. If you want to get pro status, will have to learn to pose effectively. Posing round also counts in pro finals. If you are going to go through the effort and expense, to train, diet, tan, trave, etc. do not neglect or underemphasize the posing. Important part of the competitive equation.
    Amen
