Why urine testing, AND POLYGRAPH TESTING, is the best approach for trying to ensure fair DRUG-FREE competition.
Did you know...
Competitors can USE ANABOLIC STEROIDS leading up to a show and PASS A URINE TEST!
A good number of anabolic steroids are no longer detectable in urine within a few weeks of last use (some in as little as a few days!). Competitors could get off steroids only a few weeks before a contest and not get caught with urine testing alone. Plus, growth hormone can't be detected in standard anabolic urine tests, so competitors could use human growth hormone all the way up to a contest and not get caught with a urine testing alone!
And did you also know...
BIKINI COMPETITORS make up approximately half of the competitors who HAVE NOT PASSED POLYGRAPH TESTS at OCB shows!
Use of banned substances is not always about gaining massive size. Some substances are used to help trim up and show more shape, which would be significant unfair advantages, even in the Bikini category.
Using polygraph testing in addition to urine testing, like OCB does, enables screening competitors for use of ALL banned substances, and over an extended period of time, such as OCB's 7-year drug-free policy. Plus, polygraph testing in place alone serves as a strong deterrent. Drug users are much less likely to even try to compete in shows that are polygraph tested.
After all the hard work, time, money, and personal sacrifice you put into contest prep, why risk having to go up against cheaters? View a list of fairer natural shows on OCBonline.com.
