The current core of Arnold competitors spent a lot of time and money trying to qualify for this event, all while playing by the current rules. I simply think if there is testing in 2013, you punish these athletes who are playing by the rules for no good reason.
I have to agree with you.
Best meet lifts: 1040squat, 730 bench, 730 deadlift
Best total: 1040-680-730=2450
