The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Powerlifting Resources for a newb

    Hello all,

    I want to compete raw in an untested federation.

    Can anyone point me to resources in regards to how to find a federation/meet?

    Ever time I find a meet near my area I do additional research and find it is either tested or allows equipment etc..

    I am willing to do some research. I am just looking for a comprehensive resource where I can compare federations, get feedback on federations etc..

    Thank You

    THanks man. Going there now.

    I am located in Northeast PA. I know a few guys around here who compete in USAPL but I was on their site and they are all about drug free.

    I'm pretty sure you can find some IPA and RPS meets by you.

    This site was helpful.

    Is this information accurate?

    Here I can see what feds don't test, raw vs. geared etc..

    Iron Sport is hosting a UPA meet November 16th in Glenolden, PA., not sure how far you are from there. But that should be a good one.

    RPS has tons of meets around this area and offers multiple divisions which you can do untested. Gene runs really good meets from the ones I have done and gone to.

    Crap I was just reading the rules and found this:
    "this division is a a drug-free division. Any lifter under suspicion of drug use will be required to undergo a urinalysis test. All Amateur lifters must be prepared to provide a sample of their urine after competing if randomly chosen"

    I do not meet the pro standards so I would have to compete as an amateure.

    Sucks because they have a lot of meets in my general area.

    I think if you compete in the open division they don't drug test. If I were you, I would contact Gene and just ask him. Do you have any APF meets around your area?
