NABBA USA Code of Ethics 

      We believe that the sport of bodybuilding is an ideal means for achieving total physical fitness and bodily perfection. It is a constructive force for developing discipline of the mind as well as of the body. We believe that this discipline should find expression not only in good health habits and planned physical exercise, also we believe in clean living, good sportsmanship and in correct and friendly relationships between competitors, officials, and administrators. To meet these ends we publish the following codes of ethics for the guidance of competitors and officials of NABBA USA
