No disrespect to "Bare Your Tan" company however, Maximum Tanning is the OFFICIAL tanning sponser for the Governors Cup. Meaning they Paid the promoters for this event. No OTHER tanning company will be allowed backstage for touch ups, bite ect..The promoter is aware of other companies trying to sneak around and if caught at the host hotel or the venue they will be kicked out.. I would hate to see competitors left hanging after all their hard work with no tan. I wanted to make sure anyone who is planning to compete is aware of this!!

On a brighter note, Hi Jason!!! My contract is in and I can't wait! really looking forward to hanging with all the beautiful ladies!! :awesome:

First off...The ladies were absolutely gorgeous!! Hands down to ALL of them!! :respect: I do have to admit tho that I was a little disappointed with the judging. I was hoping the criteria was a little more focused on conditioning as well as a femanine, pleasing, balanced physique because this IS suppose to be a division that is INBETWEEN Figure & FBB. There has been a lot of discussion regarding this and I do realize there needs to be a clear distinction between this new WP division & FBB but there ALSO needs to be a clear distinction between WP and Figure... I am hoping that as the competitions bring out new competitors the standard ideal will evolve properly... ;)

Thanks Valerie! It does sound like most competitors would like to see physique harder, as well as the fans. One show at a time, so we'll see what happens in St Louis next. :)

I'm sure all the ladies will be absolutely beautiful and we all will present our own ideals of what we would like to see as a standard in this new division. In the end... I believe its all relative to a pretty, well balanced, feminine physique. I'm excited... :thumbsup:

Wow, I guess I was spoiled with the last 2 pro shows. Of course in Phoenix it was only a pro show and very small to begin with so I think I was out of pre-j at 11'ish.

In St. Lou I believe we were in the car heading to get a hamburger at about 11:30-12.

Good point. I assume some of the girls may have been dieting for later shows, but entered here hoping to get some points. Alea Suarez is one name who entered late, and has a good shot at top 5. :popcorn:

LOL well I think for right now Sara Hurrle put it well in one of her post show interviews it's great for figure girls who don't want to wear heels, have more stage time, and do a routine! :rofl:

On a side completely off topic note, I read this article (http://rxmuscle.com/rx-girl-articles/5288-high-on-hurrle.html) on RxMuscle and Steve Wennerstrom said that both Sara and Michelle who are 5'5 and 5'4 respectively competed around 132 lbs.

I really like her look. She was one of the competitors we were rooting on to turn pro in 2008 (our first year).

HOLY COW! That's just crazy! Her body is off the chain there.

Hmmm, I wonder if she's still training with Kim. He's got Sara and Karin, so if Akane is still on his roster he probably has an idea on how she would need to dial some of that down to fit what the judges want at the moment. Depending on how long ago she decided to make the switch of course.

That is a BIG IF mister. If they decide to start awarding bigger more muscular physiques then why have this division ? just add lt wt bodybuilding back in and if they are gonna continue to award figuresque physiques posing without heels then why have WPD?

Here is the thing J, you cant compare A fbb to A figure competitor...you just cant . A light wt fbb standing alone might not look so big standing alone but put her next to a figure competitor and she looks HUGE even downsized :p

There is a big difference and we all know it and if a fbb wants to switch over they needs to overhaul themselves in order to be in line with what is currently placing in top three. I really dont think that this is gonna be a well lets see what happens in a year from now... the look will change, sure it will maybe a tad bigger but not by much.

What the IFBB DOES NOT WANT IS TO COME FULL CIRCLE AGAIN and have this division turn to fbb or light wt fbb. THEY DO NOT WANT OVERLY MUSCULAR women dominating this division so there will be a tight reign on this division as far as the look is concerned :o it is what it is so the ladies just need to come in how they feel comfortable in but dont expect to be rewarded with a high placing if your looking more bodybuilderish than figureish :p

That is a BIG IF mister. If they decide to start awarding bigger more muscular physiques then why have this division ? just add lt wt bodybuilding back in and if they are gonna continue to award figuresque physiques posing without heels then why have WPD?

This. If its what they wear & do vs. how they look, what's the point?

I agree its going to stick in the Figure shape, and I guess if they are expecting the usual trend towards harder over time, we should expect something like Figure circa 2003-5. The thing I don't get is, when they've introduced new categories, they were starting something totally new where the people coming in were coming kinda from scratch into the category, so frankly its easier to start softer. However w/ Physique, there are whole bunch of girls who are either long-running (read: muscle maturity) Figure girls who did start in the 2005 era, or just really like to lift, or are naturally higher test levels and lean out easier. The "look" already exists among a large enough group of competitors to hit the ground running and then have the judges stick to the criteria and not continue on that sliding slope of rewarding the next step extreme every year. The "next step extreme" already exists.

But then I'm not the IFBB :)

What I meant was that when the competitors are good? they look incredible. But, at the local and national level, often times, it is BEYOND bad. Overdeveloped pecs out of proportion to the rest of their physiques, posing that is either awkward/tentative, or waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay over the top (think Zoolander). Often, this division makes me feel uncomfortable as I am embarrassed for some of the competitors. I think as it evolves, though, the 'look' is going to be extremely marketable

Me too. I really like her overall shape. Nice small waist. I'd have liked to see her come in a bit leaner though. I can put Susan Salazar in that category too. Great physique. I like her a lot, but she seems a bit too soft. She's got more muscle though, so I'll bet it was a delicate balance for her trying to decide just how lean to come in.

I only saw a few of the Physique routines; I was on my way out for some food and rest before the night show. Besides, I'm so new to this that I'm still not sure what the judges are looking for in Figure, much less the other divisions. (And based on my call outs, I don't have what they're looking for - yet.)

I liked Akane's routine because it flowed so beautifully between poses.

Yes, here is the evening schedule. As you can see we have a while to wait for pro finals.

It's going to be a long night , especially for NPC Figure. I need caffeine!

LOOOOOVING Valerie at this show. She looks fab.

Me too. I really like her overall shape. Nice small waist. I'd have liked to see her come in a bit leaner though. I can put Susan Salazar in that category too. Great physique. I like her a lot, but she seems a bit too soft. She's got more muscle though, so I'll bet it was a delicate balance for her trying to decide just how lean to come in.

I only saw a few of the Physique routines; I was on my way out for some food and rest before the night show. Besides, I'm so new to this that I'm still not sure what the judges are looking for in Figure, much less the other divisions. (And based on my call outs, I don't have what they're looking for - yet.)

Looks like we are all fans of Akane! Yes i would like to see her tighter in a future show.

On a side note, anybody knows where Alea might've gotten her suit? I really like the top.

I definitely like Sara for the win. Much better symmetry and she looks fuller too.

Tiffany Boydston's observation tonight.......

There are definitely two different looks on stage with Women's Physique. There's the half that look like harder, more conditioned figure girls, and then there's the half that look like smaller bodybuilders.
