Im sure no expert on posing, but what I think is you have to be thinking of something else besides the camera. Think of the camera as someone. Someone you like or dont like, know well or not at all. Think about that kind of person for a minute as if they were actually standing there. Your body will follow your brain and assume the position it feels best with the person that you are thinking of. The thumbs in pocket are more natural looking than having your hands both flat against your thighs. That is completely unnatural and shows you didnt have a clue what to do with your hands. Thumbs in shows a more relaxed pose.
