I'm pretty sure that it's genetics that make them look that way, not training. The 'pose' training is more to teach the bird to be still while the judges evaluate it. The posture should be it's natural, standing position. You don't teach them to stick out their chest and hold their wings vertically, it's something that should be natural to the bird. Either your bird is conformationally correct, or it isn't.
