Our first step to ensure competitors are drug free for at least 7 years is an initial polygraph test (popularly referred to as a lie detector) prior to even stepping foot on stage. This test measures and records several physiological indices such as blood pressure, pulse, respiration, and skin conductivity while the subject is asked and answers a series of questions. The belief underpinning the use of the polygraph is that deceptive answers will produce physiological responses that can be differentiated from those associated with non-deceptive answers.
WNBF Pro Card class winners; Open Men Bodybuilding, Open Women Bodybuilding, Master Men Bodybuilding, Master Women Bodybuilding, Open Figure, Master Figure and Open Ms Fit Body must submit to a urinalysis immediately after stepping off stage. Once results of test are proved to be negative of any performance-enhancing drugs, class winner(s) will be issued the sought after WNBF pro card.
Our standards are based upon the International Olympic Committee's list of banned substances.
Pro card winners must also submit to a urinalysis after they come off stage as required by WNBF rules.
