Normally a fellow competitor in the gym would be able to help you one on one. However watch loads of dvd's and videos etc like on you tube to give you an idea.

I havent competed yet but personally I would not worry until closer the time. When you diet down there might be certain strong points you want to emphasise on as the same as you might have certain weak points which will mean that certain poses should not be included on your routine.

You will not be able to know this till your diet.

However just look on like you tube to get ideas but i wouldnt practise now

Dpending on where you are based?, try Nathan Selcon who is based and can be contacted at castle gym windsor. He has choreographed for profesional bodybuilders aswell as top level amatuers, so could be worth a try.

Watch loads of videos and practise mate in front of the mirror. Once you feel the poses are looking good you need to film yourself and watch it back TIME AND TIME AGAIN lol. The reason for this is so you are doing blind poses because remember when you are on stage there is no mirror!

you got any you can recommend to me littleluke,

also grat look there, whats you weight, height etc
Go on you tube and search for the following bodybuilders. I have prob looked at every vid of these on there. There is so many more but here are a few

James Flex Lewis

Ronnie Coleman

Dorian Yates

Jay Cutler

Kevin Levrone

Flex Wheeler

Dont forget that different physics also pose to different music. I tend to find the 6ft plus big physics tend to pose to strong classical music

Cheers flex, I'm 5f7 and I think I was only about 12 stone 7 in that pic. Im 14'7 now but not that lean ! LOL or brown :(

As for posing videos.. It depends what you would prefer? Lee priest poses well, flex wheeler... It's difficult mate.. Pick your music and then you can work out hownyou're going to pose, f.e slow rnb etc.

Learning to bring out the best in you takes time a practice in front of the mirror bringing out the best lines combind this with watching competitor who you think stand out with their routines, do'nt try to emulate top b/builders routines as it never works, just take shots from several routines and stick to no more than 10/12 and [more than this and it gets boring on stage]practice/practice/practice learn to move in the routine and not look like a "Wooden Plank" and create good lines

I learn't from watching and hours of practice it payed off as I was renowned for my posing routeins and also won the awards
