Thread: No Drug Testing in BJJ?

  1. #1

    Default No Drug Testing in BJJ?

    Is there really no drug testing in BJJ?

    Even the biggest BJJ tournaments in the world don't test for steroids and other drugs?

    If this is true..why so?

    It makes me think that a lot of guys will be on something..especially when I see some guys...such as Pablo Popovitch.

    Until there are rules against the usage of performance enhancing drugs in a given sport, they are unlikely to have tests to detect their usage.

    Ahh, I meant to ask that too.

    So it is perfectly legal to use PED's in BJJ?

    I didn't know this...now I feel that I'm at a disadvantage when competing as the only thing I take is whey protein and vitamins.

    He looks like an action figure! Who knows if he is on PED's...he might not be...but out of everyone in the BJJ world, he is the one with the PED physique.

    Unless you are competing at top level I don't think there is much chance that peds are gonna be the difference in winning or losing.

    That picture of Popovitch has inspired me to
    go back on my 5x3 routine and stop poncing
    around with lightweights!

    To be quite honest ii do agree with your reservations about Drug testing.. but as far as the shape on Popovitch, that's easily achievable especially at top level.. some Judokas ii know are at around 7% bf all the tiime..
