    sooo what classifies natural? NPC rule is anything that can NOT be bought legally by the public makes you not. So PHs are ok but SERMs will ruin it for you.

    Others say any type of PH is not natural.

    hmmmm....any thoughts? Anyone know any of the other orginizations rules on it?

    Well, just for forum convenience, those subjects have their own forum. I think this is meant to strategy and encouragement talk for those that edge towards that approach (non-hormonal).

    it's pretty strict. I went to all the sites as I plan on competing naturally. To sum it up from what I read, you pretty much can only take your basic non-hormonal supplements, with test boosters only being the herbal ones.

    no clen, no pro hormones, no anti-aromatase, no ECA, etc.

    pretty cool tho, i mean why even bother using any of the above if you aren't competing in the first place? a lot can be achieved naturally as shown time and time again on these forums.

    I like the addition, I prefer to train with out any of the PHs or anything like that. I'm not a big fan of supps to begin with.

    Can't help but wonder - I've always wondered this myself! Any truth to this?

    I mean, WHEN does testing actually take place? YEAR ROUND?

    GREAT FORUM! PROPS!

    They use lie detector tests and then screen the class winners. It is possible to cheat. But why?

    Not to beat a dead horse on the subject, but the truth is you can define "Natural" however you want to. Some say certain supps are ok, some say all "over the counter" supps (ones you can purchase legally) are ok, and some are as strict as saying NO SUPPS would be natural. Me...I adhere more to the "if it's legally sold, it's natural". I don't take advantage per se of everything that entails, but I believe that nonetheless.

    Now, if you are completing, I would strongly suggest going to the website of the organization you are planning on competing in (OCB, NGA, etc.). They will list for you everything that is banned.

    your probably right on that one brother, but I tell you one thing...anyone who has to cheat to win a natural show hasnt really won, has no integrity,no character and pretty much admits that they cant compete with the juicebags above them so they cheat with the natty guys.

    Honestly who in the world would want to win that way? for sooomuch prize $....not.....quite pathetic if you ask me...but also very much a reality.

    This definitely happens, and often. Some organizations do a better job of keeping these guys out than others. Some don't seem to care at all.

    Yah it's low and it pisses me off cuz I have had to compete against them and will in the future. I went to the Fame world naturals and the Grand Masters division had two enourmous steroid users and one that was suspect. I was a little miffed and then I saw the open winner, it was absolutely ridiculous. It's kind of disconcerting that I would never be able to beat some of these guys. All you can do is your best. Yah these guys have problems .. no doubt. I don't have to buy into it.

    I dont understand how you know these guys were not natural. Obviously they passed the test for a natural show. I know that they did not tell you that they were using and I dont think there is anyway to tell by looking. Some guys just have great genetics. You can't nock them because they are big and ripped. Thats the goal of this sport. If they failed the test or someone knew for sure that they were using then yes I agree that they are losers but don't judge them because they look great.

    Oh your wrong about that, anybody with years of experience in the sport can tell. Yes there are the borderline cases where, it could be good genetics. That's why visual screening won't work either. Some are just obvious though. Oh and the testing is not extensive in many shows, we are all aware of the problem. Like I said I don't too caught up in it. The way I look at it is, if you come in looking your best your a winner.

    ive spent enough time in the gym...and used enough supplements and gear.....I KNOW, YES i KNOW 100% when a guy is on SOMETHING! I might not guess exactly what it is...but if you know the gym game... you can tell when someones "ON" OR HAS BEEN ON SOMETHING.

    .02 and noone is juding someone for looking good, we judge then for using gear or hormones and then telling everyone " Oh I just use creatine" ya sure you do! fck off!

    if you've taken hdrol/mdrol/etc. you cannot consider yourself natural IMO. even if it's OTC.

    What if some one experiments with steroids or prohormones but then gets off and decides they want to train natural for now on. Should they never consider themselves natural or compete natural because of their past mistakes?

    I am just curious, do you know what the rules for NPC Team Universe are? I always wondered how the team universe naturals are so huge. They seem to be bigger than a lot of the natural pro bodybuilders in other organizations.

    The lie detector tests are a joke. They don't even ask if have read the banned substance list. They just ask if you have taken any substances on the list. If you have never read it....how can you knowingly lie about taking something on it??????

    Still.....why cheat? I don't know if I want to compete anymore because of all the rules. You can't take anything!

    I think if you are in a natural show you should compete as a natural. If not, enter a regular bb show. this is bb, not other sports where "maybe" "everyone" does it. Steroids are a bb staple. you either do or you don't, or you aren't on it "right now". But if you juice and compete as a natural, you deserve for me to show up to your house and beat your a$$. How can you do all the hard work (juiced or natural, its all hard work, i admit that) and then lose your integrity and lie and say you are natural if you are not?

    Back to the "what is natural?" debate, I think, no steroids or PH. Other than that you are good. I'm natural btw, not hating on juicers, just saying pick on someone your own size haha. but not really, im 6 ft 240, but there are advantages to using the juice that make it unfair. my hear goes out to DreamWeaver in his uphill battle.

    if it was created in a lab, it ain't natural. if you can't get it from food, it ain't natural. if it was 'made from' something natural, it isn't natural. LOL

    natural is natural is natural.

    Examples of natural: amino acids, dietary nootropics, herbs
