At powerlifting competitions when they drug test they are just testing for performance enhancing drugs such as steroids right?

The reason I am asking is because let's say I'm at a party and I get second hand marijuana smoke. Would they test for marijuana at a powerlifting meet?

I'm wondering the same for a bodybuilding meet but I should probably ask that in the bodybuilding section of the forum huh?

Oh wow that's stupid but I guess I understand. I will just have to stay away from that if I'm ever at any parties.

most feds that test at the local level will test just for roids....any other tests cost more money and they don't want to shell out the $$$

If you happen to be by someone and are worried about "second hand smoke" drink a ton of water and dont be around it for about a two weeks out from testing. Unless they test your hair which i doubt they will.

If your afraid of getting a false positive just lift in the non-tested division if they have one.

You sure? I saw the lab test form they sent out for me last time (AAPF) and it only had "steroid profile" selected.

Well I guess I'll have to compete in the non-tested, because I smoke marijuana on the daily. I think that's ridiculous that they'd test for that. I hope that person who said that is mistaken...:whazzup:

I was thinking IPF. Not sure about AAPF? I think its stupid personally to test for pot, its not going to help you lift anything haha.

I don't think second hand marijuana smoke is gonna cause you to test positive.

Also, I don't think second hand smoke will yield a positive result:)

No,it won't.A few years back a couple of Olympic athletes popped positive for it and claimed that second-hand smoke was the cause as they were at a party.Extensive testing has been done that discredited that second-hand smoke will cause a positive rest result from THC.

You need to be smoking pretty regularly for it to even show up in tests. Second hand smoke won't show up unless you are driving around with someone smoking everyday with the windows up.

WABDL, AAPF, and APA only test for a specific steroid profile and T/E ratio. I doubt any other PL feds pay the cash for recreational drug testing. Look at Michael Phelps hittin' the big "bong" and he gets tested regularly by the Oly people. The only reason he got popped is because of the photo.

P.S. This does not mean I condone the use of illegal recreational drugs. I only use legal recreational drugs, ie. Buttweiser.LOL

I don't drink but I've been hearing that a few benchers highly recommend Budweiser as a "bench-press range-of-motion shortener"!

I know this thread is a little old but I was talking to a guy today and he knows I shop at GNC. He told me to be careful what I buy from there because what I might think is OK might not be OK with the USAPL. He said some stuff at GNC would show up on a drug test by the USAPL. I have taken Muscletech Celltech Hardcore a few months ago and recently I have been taking Gaspari SizeOn. I was wondering if either of these would cause me to fail a drug test by the USAPL when competing in a competition.

Doubtful unless they are tainted. Your best bet would be to check the ingredients of both products versus the list of banned substances from your federation.
