Other posters point out that without out of meet testing, drug testing is much less effective:
in the USAPL this guy can come to your house and test you or at a meet that is not his.Get Fucking real you "Drug Free" guys are being ran like this guy is your dad... I'll be damned if I wanted to lift in the USAPL a person could come to my door or see me on the street and test me.
I am not defending someone but their is no way to screen somenoe for drugs by testing them the day off the meet. You can come off test suspensin a few days prior and still test fine. If you wanna lift drug free, than be drug free, and submit to being tested. No other sport has announced tests, becuase it doesn't work. From what it sounds like the USAPL should be testing alot of people outside the meet, not just a couple.
Also check out this thread where they're also discussing USAPL out of meet testing.
Its called OMT and it works very well to deter drug users from using as it is a scare tactic and has alot better chance of catching someone, the user than thinks he can just come off a few weeks before the meet and test negative. This is what most amatuer sports do, track and field etc. Are you telling me this is the first time youve heard of this, your not supposed to be on period, if your not, you have nothing to worry about period. My only grudge is that in the IPF not all countries treat drug testing the same on their own turf. If one country tests a certain percentage, then so should all countries, whether that percentage be high or low.
