RPS Banned Substance List
Revolution Powerlifting Syndicate was established with a separate drug tested division.
The Amateur division is a strict drug tested division. Testing is done by Quest Diagnostics by urinalysis. Lifters in the Amateur division will
be tested by urinalysis for the presence of prohibited anabolic steroids.
The Amateur Division lifters are tested randomly at no charge to the lifter unless the results are found positive.
Any lifter who enters the Amateur Division and totals a Professional Total will be drug tested.
Below is a list of Anabolic Steroids screened for by Quest Diagnostics:
Epitestosterone (if above 200 ng/mL)
Methandrostenolone (Methandienone, Dianabol)
Testosterone (T/epiT ratio*)
Trenbolone (Finajet, Parabolan)
and other related compounds
Probenecid (masking agent)
*specimen is considered positive when Testosterone/
Epitestosterone ratio is greater than 6
Revolution Powerlifting Syndicate does not wish to play God unlike other Federations and tell a Competitor they cannot take a medication prescribed by their Physician for a Legitimate & Documented Medical Condition!!!! ( Lifters will be required to provide a Certified Statement verifying your Medical Condition & required Medications )
Example: Adderall for ADD, Furosemide ( Lasix) for Heart Conditions, and all other related Meds/Conditions.
A lifter SHOULD NEVER be afraid to take a medication because the Organization they choose to lift in bans it. UNLESS it elevates your Testosterone, You are good to go !!
