Hey, thanks for all the help and responses to my last thread, I just had a few more questions that I was unable to find clear answers to by searching around.
1.) I understand that there are 100% drug-free federations. As someone that's not using anything would it be recommended to do a drug-free comp? Or does it even matter?
2.) I plan on doing all raw lifts, but I was unable to find any 100% raw comps in my area. Would it be a huge disadvantage to me if I competed raw in competitions where gear is allowed?
Basically, I just want to start competing raw and natural.
3.) On powerliftingwatch.com it tells you what federation the meet is for, so I just do a google search on that federation to see the rules and stuff, but there's one where it says "N/S" under federation. What's the deal with that? Does something like that even count as an actual meet?
4.) Why is there so many different federations anyway? Are there major differences in them?
I've been reading up a lot on it, and I think I'm gonna go to the one on Oct 18in Leeport, PA that Chris Rodgers from this board is going to.
