All coaches who register by Feb 14 th at 5pm EST and are tied to an athletes session will receive an Arnold Expo wristband that will give you access all three days of the expo.

ATHLETE WEIGHT CLASS, WITHDRAWALS & REGISTERING COACHES
Please use the ATHLETE CHANGE FORM to change your weight class, withdraw from an event or to register your coaches.   

You must register your coach so they have access to the warm-up room during your session.

Please pay attention to the deadlines for registering coaches as well as weight class changes.

We are finalizing the start/end times for each session on the ballroom. In the meantime, you can see what session your weight class will be lifting here: https://arnold.usapowerlifting.com/schedule-of-events/

MEDICATION, PREWORKS & DRUG TESTING
It is important to remember that our events are drug tested. If you take ANY medication for any reason, you must verify if it if your medication is permitted or prohibited. If prohibited, a TUE (Therapeutic Use Exemption) application must be submitted. The National Office can help through that process if needed.

Verify mediations through here: https://www.globaldro.com/US/search Enter: Athlete > Weightlifting > then your mediation.

Additionally, many pre-workouts contain prohibited substances, whether declared on the ingredient labels or a hidden (contaminated) substance within the product. You as the athlete are responsible for what you put in your body and may cause a failure, which happened a few years ago at the Arnold. Consumer beware and only use products that are third party tested to help protect yourself.
