    Tight clothes work well with these moves.

    A nice fitting athletic t-shirt always works for me. Some nice and somewhat tight(not too tight) levi's work as well. They work best after a good workout.

    You'll see this in a lot of profile pics. Helps create the illusion that your arms are bigger than they really are. icon_lol.gif

    I think the best way to show off, is to wear properly fitting clothes. If the clothes are too tight, then people will think you're a douchebag trying to show off. If your clothes are too loose, then you'll appear out of shape.

    Yes, that generally works, as long as you can wear t-shirts and levi's. I still haven't figured out, though, how to make anything look good while wearing business attire (suit or slacks and sports coat). That garb seems to be designed to hide all the sins of the average middle-aged breeder slob and puts anyone who works hard to have a nice body at a disadvantage. Any suggestions?

    get some custom suits. i've seen some metro dudes that wear them well. but yeah generally suits seem to hide all the buffness.

    hm and I thought I was a showoff! I didn't know most of these.

    #1 happens all the time in the gym. I don't hate witnessing it but I've never done it myself. Straight guys seem to love this one.

    I do #3 most. Especially if walking by someone interesting. what a great time to itch an eyebrow or underneath the chin.....

    Post a picture of you shirtless, looking straight into the camera showing just enough torso. Call it your "pre/post workout picture."

    Eeeek

    I do a face wipe all the time!

    But I have Hyperhydrosis (SUPER SWEATY) and play volleyball and get really into it. I should get a headband... But I do bring a towel when I can remember, but otherwise it is shirt to the forehead and abs out, but then the shirt ends up so wet I run out of fabric to wipe on my forehead...

    == Steps ==
    #1
    Do a face-wipe. Is it a little bit hot out today? Wipe your face with your shirt to show off the abs. Make sure you have them flexed BEFORE you lift your shirt. Be careful you don't get a lot of sweat on a cotton tee-shirt or else the sweat with show across your shirt where you wiped. Don't take to long and make sure that people are watching.
    #2
    Perform an arm-fold. To show off your biceps, fold your arms and push your wrists upwards a little bit.
    #3
    Pretend to stretch, yawn, or scratch the back of your head. this also shows off your biceps.
    #4
    Interlock the fingers of both arms while standing. If wearing a T-shirt or tight-fitting top, stand with interlocked fingers while facing the object of your attention. This pose shows off a combination of muscle groups in the upper body and makes you appear larger than normal.
    #5
    Put your hands in or on top of your pockets (this works best if you have jeans with pockets cut horizontally or at an angle) and push downwards, without actually pulling your pants down. This shows off your triceps.
    #6
    To show off your pecs, be sure your arms are close together and are down. This is the ideal position as they are naturally flexed. Also, be sure you don't face people directly if possible, as chest muscles look best from a slight angle.
    #7
    Pay attention to your walk. Try not to walk with bent knees. That is, when you land on your left foot, your left leg should be straight, and your right leg should just be naturally bent. Try to make this look natural and unrehearsed, because if done wrong it just looks awkward. When done right it makes your quad muscles tense just before you land on your foot, which makes it look as if your leg muscles are bulging when you walk. (This works best if you are wearing knee-length shorts, or tight pants in a thin material or light colour.)

    You're welcome. icon_cool.gif

    Who cares if it's intentional?

    The people who hate it are not the ones I'm trying to impress.

    OK DO NOT DO THE TIGHT SHIRT THING PLEASE. IT COMES OFF AS YES I HAVE THESE AND I KNOW YOU LIKE IT. Here is what you do. I say if you are at the gym where a shirt that fits but its not tight. Also, a sleeveless shirt is always a good way to go.

    Haha this is so lame- I can just see some people doing this constantly trying to show off.

    I would only do this if I was making a joke with friends.

    People will recognize when you don't force it (and don't wear super baggy clothes). The rare time when it does happen and people see you doing something like stretch, do it naturally. The effect will be 100x more.

    Now, if it's something like pictures, you need to be aware of camera's at all time and know how to respond, like it was unplanned. Pictures are forever.
    For example:

    I'm vain, sure, but I'm proving a point icon_razz.gif

    I wear tight shirts because all my old shirts are smalls and I can't afford/am too cheap to buy new ones.

    #8 When sat down lean forwards and move your arms down near your lap so everyone can see how big and muscly your back is under your shirt. Bonus points if you rip your shirt down the back like the Incredible Hulk.

    Also there is a difference between wearing a tight shirt.. and wearing a shirt that looks like you got it at baby gap...
