I know we have a bunch of seasoned competitors on here, so I was hoping someone might be able to lay out some info for me.
Since starting following Natural BBing a couple of years ago, I've realized that there are many different federations/groups/whatever. They all seem to have different guidelines as far as what is 'acceptable' or not. Without even realizing it, I guess I've mostly been folowing the WNBF/INBF, as they apparently have the most contests/money etc.
Those of you that have read any of my posts the last few months know that I've been toying with the idea of doing a show in '09, and have slowly brought my weight down from about 205/210 to my current 188 lbs. What I never thought to look into though, was just how strict the WNBF guidelines are.
Apparently, using HOT-ROX essentially disqualifies me from competing in the WNBF/INBF. Now, before I get advice on beating a lie detector test ("Dude, Just totally believe you never took 'em!" -lol), I was hoping I could get some info on other organizations. I actually wrote an email to another group after finding a site online, and their official stance is "we don't ban anything OTC", which is cool, but the shows are few, far between, and not exactly in my area for the most part.
