CRAB POSE/ MOST MUSCULAR
ONLY FOR MEN:
This pose will be required only for the men in bodybuilding.
CRAB POSE INTRODUCTION:
This one can be done in different ways, hands clasped in front of the body or the so called “crab” most muscular pose. Whichever one you choose, you will be required to flex your abs, chest, shoulders arms and quads to their max.
GET STRIATIONS & CUTS:
The contestant must stand with one leg slightly extended toward the judges, and assume a favorite of the following most muscular poses. Either the “crab”, hands-on-hips or partial crab (with one hand behind back) variations may be used. Side most muscular poses are not permitted unless instructed by the Head Judge. It is an excellent way to get striations and cuts into chest and quadriceps.
PROCEDURE FOR CRAB POSING:
With the Crab Most Muscular, you want one foot in front of you slightly. The Leg that is in the back will support most of your weight. Like in all other situations, you want your knees pointed out slightly in order to bring out the best quad sweep you can. Both legs need to be flexed hard and showing as much definition as possible. Many will choose to spike the toe of the foot in front to show the details in their calf. If you do spike your toe, just remember to keep flexing your quads, you do not want to lose definition in the larger muscle groups in order to show the minor details.
