Great work man! Hope you win some contests.
Quick question: Since your all natural do you also compete in the natural body building contests. How do those work? Do they test their competitors there?
I can answer, since I have competed in a number of “natural” comps. The sponsoring organizations are different, and each has it’s own procedure for testing.
The ones I competed in, sponsored by the ABA, used either a voice lie-detector test, or urine drug screens, or both. The OCB also does strict testing. You need to check the website of each organization for their list of banned substances, which is updated frequently.
i just have another follow up question: What about bodybuilders who have used stuff in the past and then stopped altogether, can they compete in natural contests? I guess what im trying to find out is how far back do the typical tests (like urine) go? Just curious.
Again, it depends on the organization, and the particular comp. Most of them require 5 years drug-free, and some comps have a “forever natural” class where you can never have used any banned substances. The urine tests obviously don’t go back more than maybe a week or two, so they would depend on the lie-detector test. I do get the feeling there is some cheating at some comps, but it is the best you can do.
