  1. Choosing a first event

    Thanks for the response. That makes a lot of sense. The age categories was somethin on my mind and the idea of entering at novice makes sense. Cheers.
  2. Choosing a first event

    I'm looking for some advise or pointers on choosing a first event - Google throws up so many options it's a minefield. By way of background, I'm soon to be 42 and been training S&C most of my adult life on and off. I've ran marathons, ultras, done Ironman and strength based challenges. But never considered bodybuilding as a specific goal - within fitness its the one area I have an itch left to scratch. 5'8" and hover around 200lbs and currently about 18% BF. Are there any online resources, blogs or articles that provide breakdown or comparison of the different federations, classes, drug policies etc? Some of the key questions I guess I'm trying to answer are, where would I best fit (first timer / novice, masters - some of the age categories are quite broad, which evets are tested for PED's and which aren't or only test on the day - I have in the past used PED's and wouldn't want to fall foul of any requirement for a lifetime clean (I think this is a WADA policy adhered to by some federations) etc I'm in the process of talking with a few prep coaches, which I hope will help, but would like to research as much as possible in advance. Thanks...

    Hi folks, 40 something and been training on and off since I was a teen. Back at it with new vigor now I'm getting older - the OH has recently got into lifting and BBing so I'll be looking for pointers to help her journey too.
